Generally, Canadian or permanent resident students must reside in West Vancouver and must have their parents residing in the province to allow us to apply for funding for their education from the provincial government. If parents do not reside in British Columbia, Canadian and permanent resident students will be enrolled in the International Student Program and tuition fees will required.
Admission to the International Student Program is considered once applicants submit the following documentation: a non-refundable $200.00 application fee; at least one letter of recommendation from a teacher or principal; official transcripts from the past three years of school; a personal letter outlining the student's interests in studying in Canada; and the International Student Program application form.
Canadian and permanent resident students should contact the school nearest to where they will live directly and speak to the principal about enrolment in the school. Normally, students who will be moving to West Vancouver to start school in September should contact the appropriate school principal in the spring. The principal and staff at the school will need to see proof of citizenship or permanent residency, proof of residency in West Vancouver, and proof that the student's parent(s) reside in British Columbia.
Upon notification of acceptance into the program, students are required to pay the full amount of tuition to reserve their position in the program. Once tuition is paid, documents will be sent to the applicant, which will allow the student to obtain a study permit (visa). All international students must obtain a study permit to be allowed to study in any academic program. Applications can be made to the Canadian High Commission or Canadian Embassy of the country in which the student resides.
