Minor students who come to Canada to study and who are not accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, must be cared for by a responsible adult in Canada. Parents are the natural guardians for their child. The responsible adults make decisions about the child’s education, support and maintenance. A person appointed as guardian must be suitable and qualified and is usually a close adult relative willing to serve. Longbridge High School provides a comprehensive guardianship service for international students. The objective of the service is to support and provide a safe secure environment for international students who wish the opportunity to experience the Canadian culture and education.
