International Families

WPGA welcomes applications from international families. Families who do not have Canadian citizenship or permanent residency status are considered international.
 
WPGA also requires:
  • At least one parent of international and out-of-province students must possess a valid work or study permit, which must not expire during the enrolment period. In other words, parents must submit a valid work or study permit prior to enrolment; the permit must not expire between the start of school in September and June of the following year.
  • The student must reside with their family. We do not offer boarding facilities or a homestay program.
  • The student must be proficient in English (we do not offer EAL or ESL programs).
  • If enrolled, tuition fees may be an additional $4,500 CAD
