Canadians place great importance on learning, and have developed a first-rate education system with high standards whether you are a young student or conducting PhD level research. A Canadian degree, diploma or certificate is recognized globally as being comparative to those from the United States and Commonwealth countries. Canada spends more on education (as a percentage of Gross National Product) than the Organization for Economic and Co-operation and Development (OECD) average, and is highest among G-8 countries. International students can save considerably by studying in Canada over other country options. Factor in Canada’s low cost of living, and the overall financial advantage becomes even greater. This makes Canada a smart investment in your future! Eligible international students who have graduated from a Canadian university or college have the opportunity to work in Canada after they receive their degree or diploma.
International students can also work off campus with a work permit during their studies. As the world’s second-largest country, Canada offers tremendous geographic variety in a climate not nearly as cold as you might think! Visitors discover Pacific coastal mountains, sweeping prairies, sparkling skylines in sophisticated cities, the rugged beauty of the Atlantic region, golden beaches and much more. Parks and historic sites offer outdoor activities, soccer, tennis, golf, swimming, skiing – and, of course, hockey – are among the vast array of sports and recreation enjoyed across Canada.
