About Us


The agency was established and operated by VHA-Vancouver Homestay Agency Inc. LLC. It has been a registered company in Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, Canada, since February of 2005.

We welcome homestay hosts and their families to host domestic and international students in their prospective homes. The agency's primary objective is to promote cultural exchange, language immersion, and comfortable stays.

The agency recruits homestays in metropolitan areas and the suburbs with easy access to city centers, schools, colleges, or universities. In addition, most homestays have easy access to public transit and school bus routes. Our homestays and students usually adhere to our homestay guidelines to facilitate easy and successful stays.

Our founder; "I was an international student who aspired to study and travel abroad. I stayed in a homestay with a local host family in Europe to practise a foreign language while attending school. I learned how to use words correctly and a great deal about the lifestyle and culture. Therefore, I founded IHA to offer personalized and well-coordinated homestay placements to domestic and international students, schools and colleges".
