How to Become a Langley District Homestay Family
Thank you for your interest in the Langley School District International Homestay Program.
Procedures for becoming a Langley Homestay Family are as follows:
1: Please click HERE to complete the online Homestay Application
2: Due to the high number of Homestay Applications received, the Homestay Department will contact you when there is a need for Homestay families for International Students in your school catchment area! A home visit will be scheduled with you at this time.
NOTE: Please advise your Homestay Coordinator if you have a tenant living in a suite in your home or tenant living in a detached suite on your property. The Homestay Coordinator will need to view all tenant living arrangements. The Homestay Coordinator will need to have access to view the suite at the home visit.
3: Upon acceptance to the Homestay Program (subsequent to a mandatory Home Visit by a member of the Homestay Department) you and all members of your home, 19 years and older, (tenants, boarders, grandparents in the home, etc.) will be required to undergo a Police Record Check through the RCMP (with Vulnerable Sector screening).
4: The cost of the PRC is the responsibility of the homestay family. The PRC form is available at the Police Department and two pieces of I.D. will be required. We do not accept online variations of PRC’s (e.g. BackCheck). We will only accept PRC’s that have been completed within six months of joining the program. Police Record Checks stay on file for 3 years. After 3 years, a new Police Record Check is required for a Homestay family to remain active in the Homestay Program.
5: Once PRC have been received, you will become an “Active” Homestay Family in our system. You will need to be prepared to accept International Students when they become available in your area.
