Commercial Drive is a great place to cruise around and explore during nice spring days and evenings. “The Drive” is always lively with it’s Italian spirit. There are many local or international students, artists, and bohemians walking around the Drive, spending time at one of the many coffee shops or restaurants. You can check out the public events on www.thedrive.ca. You can find many ethnic cuisines and try different flavors on the Drive. It might be a fun student group outing. June 10th is a great day to visit the Drive because it’s Italian Day and there will be lots going on!

Monthly ESL student activities


Great news for our international students and interns! From now on, temporary residents (students and temporary foreign workers) currently residing in Canada with valid status can submit their application for a new temporary resident visa to Ottawa. The visitors had to submit their application in US formerly. This solves the problem of all those people:

  • students on visitors permits who previously would have to go to the States to get a study permit,
  • students who wants to apply for a temporary work permit to get into a Study and Work Program after they come to Vancouver,
  • who couldn’t upgrade to an internship program if they didn’t have an American visa.

Contact your counselor if you need any assistance about the visa procedures.


It’s that time of the year again! We are going to do the first BBQ of 2012 tomorrow. Remember to get your tickets ($5) from Serena or from the reception today.
