International Student Program Needs Your Help
More than 2000 international students attend schools in Alberta each year. Arriving from over 70 different countries, these students attend classes alongside local Alberta Students.
We need your help. We are looking for:
- Homestay Host Families: Welcoming an international student into your home can be an exciting and rewarding experience for the whole family, and provides a range of benefits. All of the information and documents you need are here: https://sites.google.com/btps.

- School Ambassadors: We are looking to link our new students with current BTPS students. The expectation of our current BTPS student would be:
- They have a locker close to the new international student
- They are available to connect with the student via email prior to the student arriving in Canada
- They are available to come to the second part of the orientation session in their school to take the student on a tour of the building and introduce the staff.
- They are available to attend one or two BTPS International Student events.
If you are are current JR Robson High School student and interested in becoming an ambassador, please see Mr. Bates.
