BC K-12 International Student Homestay Guidelines

The purpose of the BC K-12 International Student Homestay Guidelines is to provide consistent, province-wide best practice standards for B.C.’s K-12 homestay sector.

The Guidelines were originally developed between October 2014 and June 2015 by a working group comprised of K-12 school district, independent schools and Ministry of Education representatives. They were subsequently consulted on with the K-12 sector in the spring of 2015. Over the summer of 2017, the Guidelines were updated with an expanded working group including K-12 and post-secondary representatives to capture changes in the International Education sector relevant to homestay. They represent the commonly-held view on industry best-practice
