Homestay in Coquitlam School District is more than just food and lodging – it is a chance to take part in all aspects of family life. We believe that our students will feel that they really do have a “home away from home” environment. Homestay includes room and board with a separate bedroom in a family setting. (Note: Elementary school students must live with a parent during long-term programs.)

There are many families in the Tri-cities area looking forward to welcoming you as part of their family while you are studying in school district 43. For placement, you may choose from one of several homestay agents. Homestay includes room and board. You may also request pickup and drop-off at school.
