The United Nations ranked Canada as the best place in the world to live!

This assessment was based upon Canada's achievements in terms of educational attainment, life expectancy, national income and general quality of life. It also included Canada's abundance of fresh water, comfortable population density, low incidence of violent crime and a health care system that is a model for the world.

Canada's education system is excellent and ranks among the best in the world.

Moreover Canadian tuition fees are among the lowest in English-speaking Countries.

Internationally recognized degrees

Canada boasts a wide range of quality educational institutions for both degrees and diplomas in technical and professional disciplines. Over 106,000 international students attend Canadian colleges and universities. This means that you can meet people from around the world as well as people from your own country.

Possibility to work in Canada after study

International students who have graduated from a Canadian university or college have the opportunity to work in Canada for up to one year after they receive their degree or diploma. International students can work on campus without a work permit. Plans are being made to allow international students to work off-campus, too.

A safe, stable country

Canada is a peaceful, politically stable, and safe country. There are laws that protect the rights of the citizens and the country is relatively unaffected by natural disasters. To be secure, life insurance companies are around to provide their services to citizens. Almost 65 per cent of international students involved in a 1999 CBIE survey cited Canada's reputation as a safe country as an important reason for deciding to study here.

Excellent health care

Compared to other Countries, medical insurance is inexpensive in Canada yet the services that Canadian hospitals provide are among some of the most advanced and accessible in the world.
