International House

Moving2Vancouver International House

Following the successful launch of, the Moving2Canada team is now offering newcomers the unique opportunity to live in our international accommodation.

We understand it can be tough starting out in Vancouver, especially finding somewhere to live in new surroundings. That’s why we’re offering a select number of newcomers the unique opportunity to live in our fully furnished international accommodation in Vancouver. Located in Shaughnessy, one of Vancouver’s finest neighborhoods, the International House offers a nurturing environment for newcomers so that they can find a job and quickly settle into life in Vancouver.

We are now accepting applications from potential tenants. Move in date is always the starting date of the month. Ideally people will stay one or two months while they find their feet in a new city, but we’re open to longer stays for the right tenants.

July Update: One large double upstairs room ($825/month) available from July 1st. Ideal for a couple with spacious walk-in wardrobes.

Note: Most room rentals in Vancouver are rented on the first of every month, and this also applies to our international accommodation. Furthermore, most rooms come unfurnished, but ours are furnished so you are saving yourself the time and expense of furnishing a room.
