Living in Canada

Think of Canada and you think of spectacular natural beauty and friendly, relaxed people. It’s all true, and so much more... 

Live here and you’ll experience a safe, healthy and tolerant society. You’ll mix with a diverse range of people who are interested in learning about new cultures. Add to that high living standards and world-class education and Canada is an ideal destination for international students.

Canada was one of the first countries in the world to introduce multiculturalism and it is still celebrated today. As an international student you’ll feel at home in this country of pioneering spirit. 

The two main languages spoken in Canada are English and French, but more than 200 languages are spoken across the country. Many colleges and universities are bilingual, so as an international student you can improve your language skills and open the door to career success.  

If you love the outdoors, you’ll thrive here. You can breathe in the crisp, clean air, and enjoy the breathtaking mountains, hills and rivers. 

Sporting types can enjoy Olympic-quality sports facilities and unique sports like ice hockey and lacrosse. 

And if you’re a city type, there are sophisticated cities to explore, with friendly locals, culture, history and diverse cuisine.
