Are you curious about being a Homestay?

Hello SD8 Kootenay Lake Families,

We often have inquiries from international schools for short term stays by larger groups of students. These stays last anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months, with homestay compensation being $900/month (tax free and prorated for shorter stays, i.e. $450 for two weeks).

These short term stays are a great way to explore the options of hosting an international student, and whether it is right for you and your family.

As Canada begins to open up to the world again, we expect to have requests for short term visits soon. If you are interested in exploring this option, please contact us at:
