    Every Canadian city has its own character, so it really depends what you're looking for. I chose the city of Edmonton to study at the University of Alberta. Since then, I've fallen in love with this city. We have just over a million people living here now for all the benefits of city life without being overwhelmed by density. It's one of the most affordable places to live in Canada with lower cost of living and taxes than any other major city. We have hundreds of festivals every year and events and things to do and are just a couple of hours drive from the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

    Making the choice on which city to study in will come down to a lot of different factors for international students and their families. Of course, it will come down to the educational programs available, the values of the city and, of course, the cost of living, among many others. I really encourage international students to do a lot of research prior to making this decision because it will affect not only your studies, but your happiness while you're there. And I really do think that this answer will differ from student to student.
