International Student Placement Services

Classic Canadian Homestay is a family owned and operated business based in North Vancouver. We have been placing international students throughout the Northshore and Metro Vancouver since 2001.

We are always seeking caring and interactive host families in West Vancouver for short-term student groups year round. Most students are high-school age and here for periods lasting a few days or a few weeks.

Our students originate primarily from Japan. They range in age from 12-21, depending on the group or school that they travel with. Many students end up making life-long relationships with their host families. International student placements are also a great way to expose your own children to other cultures.
