Host Families


Please note: As of September 1, 2017 we are no longer accepting any new host family applications as our roster is currently full.


Hosting is a great opportunity for you to meet our international friends, learn the many cultures, and expose our

visitors to our wonderful city of White Rock as well as the surrounding cities.

Please note

The homestay program is an opportunity for international students to live with and become part of their host family.

Independent living  - such as a self contained suite - for international students is NOT part of the homestay program.


White Rock Homestay and International Education is in constant communication with the host family, the student

the student's parents, and the school counselors to ensure that all parties are enjoying a positive experience.


Host Families who fail to comply with the homestay policies, procedures and guidelines as outlined in the homestay

agreement, will immediately be removed from the program and their student will be placed with another host family.


White Rock Homestay and International Education abides by the same policies, procedures and guidelines as outlined

by the Ministry of Education and the Surrey School District.
