Our Staff

CSLI has an amazing team of energetic staff members working for you because we want to ensure that your experience in Canada is positive and memorable.

CSLI’s staff can help you with any questions or concerns that you may have about your stay in Vancouver – anything to do with your studies, homestay, or life in Vancouver.

Remember that all questions are welcome. There is always someone available to talk about any questions you may have about adapting to your new life in Vancouver: study goals, culture shock, homesickness, or personal challenges.

Our staff all speak a second language, so they can help you not only in English but also in Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, Japanese, Mandarin, and French. Just contact them and they will be very happy to help you.
