You've just joined a supportive community of teachers and students dedicated
to learning. You have lots of questions as you prepare your journey. Find your answers here.
We're sure you are looking forward to your travels to Canada with both excitement and perhaps some worry.
We would like to do anything we can to help you. Email us with any questions you have, about anything.
Big questions like "How do I get to the Comox Valley?" or small questions like "Do I need a raincoat?" - all of them are ok.
You might also want to read Attitude is Everything to help you get ready for the differences you are going to experience.
It's always a challenge to decide what to bring. This list should help.
Pack clothing appropriate for Vancouver Island weather. You might want to check out our
weather office. Temperatures in the summer rises to +25 degrees Celsius and in the
winter the temperature can drop as low as -5 degrees Celsius. A raincoat and boots are a good idea for our winter rain.
Students on campus dress casually – jeans and T-shirts are normal.
