Visas and Housing

Visa Support

Blyth Academy is proud to work with Bright Immigration, a full-service immigration consulting firm based in Toronto, Ontario, that provides highly-qualified immigration services to a variety of business sectors, including education. Bright Immigration is considered one of the fastest growing and most innovative firms in Canada. 

International students who are admitted to Blyth Academy receive a complimentary (free) 15–minute consultation with Bright Immigration about their study permit application, and 10% off any services they purchase to support their visa application. 



Living with a Canadian family is a great way for international students to improve their language skills and learn about Canadian culture. Host families will include students in meaningful family activities, like cooking meals, conversations and excursions. 

We work with some primary Homestay Providers*:  

  • The Canada Homestay Network is a family-run, non-profit society that has helped tens of thousands of students find a home away from home in Canada.  All of their accommodations are located in appealing, safe neighborhoods accessible to your school by public transportation. For more information and pricing, please click here. 
  • MLI Homestay believes that international homestay experiences allow participants to emerge more knowledgeable and understanding about life abroad, and more confident of their own abilities and achievements.  Participants will have an experience that will be one of the most valuable in their lives, and return to their home country with memories that last a lifetime. MLI Homestay has placed thousands of students with caring host families across Canada.  For more information and pricing, please click here.
  • CIHA - Student hockey athletes also have the ability to board at our partner school the Canadian International Hockey Academy.

Additional accommodation options, including private student residences (for students aged 16+) can be found in the document here.

*Homestay providers are independent organizations and operate separately from Blyth Academy. Prices are in addition to Blyth Academy tuition fees.

Medical Insurance  

Blyth Academy is proud to work with StudyInsured, a trusted name in the travel insurance industry, to provide emergency medical insurance to our international students. The comprehensive plan covers medical expenses, prescription drugs, dental services, counselling and many more services.

My son is enjoying the experience especially with the current family that he is staying with. We have visited the family twice since he moved in and we find it very safe. The benefit is that he is integrated into the everyday life of an average Canadian like taking buses and train to school and back, take home cooked meals and sharing in family life. This is different from a regular boarding school life. Overall, it is great.
