Living away from home can be a challenge. Everything is new - the language, the culture, the food, the environment and the people. While this can be exciting it can also lead to culture shock and homesickness. The staff of the international department at Vancouver Community College is here to help you adjust to your new home by providing you with support and services that meet your needs. Until you become accustomed to Vancouver, we suggest you live with a Canadian homestay family.
Host families in Canada come from many different backgrounds. At VCC, we encourage international students to experience life with a Canadian family in our homestay program as it will give you an excellent chance to practice your English outside the classroom and learn about the Canadian way of life.
We guarantee that living with a host family will be a valuable and unforgettable cultural experience that will positively transform your life. Homestay is the most affordable choice for accommodation in Vancouver.

Surrounded by ocean, mountains and parks, Vancouver offers friendly people, clean air, clean water, health care, safety amd mild year-round temperatures - another reason why VCC is an excellent choice for students.
