If you are looking to live the Canadian family experience, but not at the expense of your independence,  the roomstay program is for you. Our roomstay program is similar to our homestay program, except you will be in charge of your own meals. You will have to purchase your own groceries and prepare your own food.

All BLI roomstay families live within a reasonable distance from the school. The average commute time between a roomstay residence and BLI by public transportation is 20-60 minutes.

Your roomstay host(s) will provide you with a private or shared room that is furnished with a bed, a closet/armoire, and a desk. Some roomstay hosts offer computer and internet access as well.

There is no better way to improve your language skills than by living it.  The roomstay program creates a complete language immersion experience.

The roomstay accommodation option is limited to students of ages 18+.
