Canadian homestay placements are ideal for those students wanting a truly Canadian experience. Homestay families provide security, protection, and care for their host students, making them feel a part of the family, and integrating them into Canadian culture.
Students studying at Alexander College may choose their housing options in Vancouver depending on their preferences. The two main choices for housing are to stay in a homestay (with a local family) or rent an apartment. Since Alexander College does not have student residences, some students prefer to share apartments with friends or rent on their own.
For students who are under 19 years old, it is required by law in British Columbia that they stay in a homestay with a family and have a local, legal guardian. Homestay companies provide guardianship services for international students if required. Students over 19 years old may also choose to stay with a homestay family if they so desire.
