If you are looking for a truly Canadian cultural experience filled with new activities, new foods and a welcoming Canadian family, then the Comox Valley International Student Program is right for you. Homestay families are an important part of your international student experience. Learn English in your home every day with English speaking parents, brothers and sisters. Our dedicated, full-time Homestay Coordinators recruit, screen, and orient homestay families to ensure a warm and supportive home setting.
The Canadian federal government requires all international students under the age of nineteen (19) studying in Canada to have a legal custodian in the Comox Valley. Legal custodianship is provided by the CVISP at no charge when an international student resides in a CVISP homestay family. The CVISP always requires a copy of page 1 and 2 of your CD on file . Page 2 of the CD must be completed by your natural parents/guardian, notarized and sent to the CVISP before arrival.
