Frequently Asked Questions

Before Arriving

When should I arrive?

You should arrive the Sunday before classes begin.

Can I arrive early or stay a few extra days?

Yes, you can. Please contact our registrar to enquire about the additional fee.

Who will meet me at the airport?

Your homestay family will be at the airport to welcome you to Prince Edward Island.

What will the weather be like during my stay?

Summer on PEI is very comfortable. You should bring lightweight clothes like t-shirts, shorts, lightweight pants and jackets. And don’t forget your bathing suit! Temperatures go down, especially in the evening, so you’ll need a light jacket, pants and sweaters. Winter can be cold, so you will need a warm coat, boots, hat, scarf, and gloves, especially if you plan to spend time outdoors enjoying the snow or skating. In spring, the temperatures start to warm, so sweaters and a light jacket maybe enough. You also may want to bring an umbrella for strolling through the spring showers.
