High quality of education and research
Canada’s higher education system is one of the world’s best, and the four CALDO universities are awarded 20% of all research funding in the country. Degrees from Canadian universities are highly valued by employers around the world in the private sector, academia, government, and more. Canada is a high tech hub that enjoys world-class companies and research in key fields.
Welcoming and friendly culture
We are a country that prides ourselves on our multiculturalism, and international students like you will be able to find friends easily and make connections with professors. Canada is a safe country where you don’t have to worry about walking home alone at night or using public transportation – as long as they follow basic common sense.
Incredible natural beauty and four real seasons
Canada’s diverse landscapes range from the majestic Rocky Mountains of Alberta to the Atlantic-coast setting of Dalhousie University to the St. Lawrence River and estuary overlooked by Université Laval, to the vast urban green spaces next to the University of Ottawa. Anyone who has experienced the spectacular Canadian fall when the leaves are in full colour, hit the ski slopes in winter, wondered at the blooming flowers in springtime, or enjoyed our outdoor festivals and cafes in summer knows the advantages to having four proper seasons!
Low cost of living and opportunity to work
The cost of living is low, while the standard of living is high – plus, many social services are provided by the taxes paid by Canadians. International students can work during their studies (with some specific requirements), giving you the opportunity to earn extra money or gain important work experience.
A marriage of French and Anglo-Saxon traditions, Canada has two official languages: French and English. Although the majority of Canada’s French-speakers live in in the province of Quebec, there are francophone communities across the country.
