With almost all of the world’s ethnic groups represented in Canada, everyone can feel right at home in Canada. Canada’s rich cultural heritage provides the widest choices of ethnic foods and recreational activities.

Academic Excellence

over 200,000 international students choose to pursue their education in Canada each year. If you are looking for a world-class education in an English-speaking nation with a high standard of living, look no further than Canada.

Canada has 12 universities ranked in the Times Higher Education Supplement Top 200. This strong education system (along with its economy and quality of life) earned Canada a designation by the UN as one of the best places in the world to live.

Quality and Standards

Canadian education institutions are not officially ranked in Canada but all of the institutions are of highest standards of quality. The type, size and locations are 3 things one needs to consider when choosing an education institution for studying in Canada. Best bet is to in research which institution has more to offer in your area of study

Innovative and abundant research opportunities

since research is one of the key components of a Canadian post-secondary education, you’ll have ample opportunity to become a part of this vibrant aspect of education. In Canada, government and industry together support research including: telecommunications, medicine, agriculture, computer technology, and environmental science.

Employment

Gain valuable work experience and supplement your spending allowance with a student job.

While you must supply sufficient evidence that you can pay for your tuition and living expenses before you arrive in Canada, there are a number of opportunities for you and your spouse/common-law partner to work while you study in Canada.

Working in Canada can go a long way towards helping you establish business contacts for the future and can even help you immigrate after graduation.

Top Destination in Canada

Vancouver

Vancouver is surrounded by natural beauty: lush green parks, the sparkling English Bay and snowy mountain peaks. British Columbia’s Pacific jewel, however, remains intensely urban, its neighborhoods buzzing with sidewalk cafes in Yaletown and dotted with eye-catching, eco-friendly architecture in Kitsilano. Victoria retains more of the province’s British heritage. The island city welcomes visitors with stately provincial government buildings and the palatial Fairmont Empress Hotel, set on the picturesque Inner Harbour.

Countryside

Venture along Vancouver Island’s coast, stopping to explore the sea creatures in tide pools and scan the water for porpoises and whales. One spectacular mountain vista after another emerges along the Sea to Sky Highway, which hugs Howe Sound from Vancouver to the heavenly ski village of Whistler. The MV Northern Adventure ferry weaves through the Inside Passage all along the British Columbia coast, where hidden fjords and Pacific cliffs are otherwise visited only by bald eagles and orcas.

Mountains and Lakes

In a province known for its vistas, Whistler competes with the best. In summer, ascend the Canadian Rockies via chair lift to take in breathtaking mountain views; in winter, those chair lifts will introduce you to Canada’s most awe-inspiring skiing and snowboarding. Charge downstream in a river raft just outside Jasper National Park in nearby Alberta, or take in a mountain vista at a slower pace, bicycling through the cedar and hemlock trees in Vancouver’s Stanley Park.

New Brunswick

For whatever reason, New Brunswick isn’t usually considered a top priority when first-time travelers begin hatching plans to visit the eastern provinces. Even within Canada, the province is as well known for its pulp mills, industrial forests, cargo ports, and refineries (Irving Oil is based here) as for its cute villages, high tides, fresh air, or friendly locals.

And to foreigners? The place is mostly confused with the same-named city in New Jersey. Either that, or it’s viewed as a place to be driven through as quickly as possible en route to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

Rest assured, though: New Brunswick does have pockets of wilderness and scenic beauty that equal those anywhere in eastern Canada, and plenty of great cultural offerings. (FDR was crazy about the place.) This province’s appeals are just a bit less obvious than those of, say, Cape Breton.

Alberta

Alberta’s fame — and international tourist reputation — is built on three pillars: mountains, cowboys, and more mountains. All right, that’s two, but you get the point. This is an extravagantly gorgeous outdoor wonderland, and the Canadian Rockies are the main attraction. This is not to say all that is worthwhile is to be found at high altitudes. Calgary’s growing, urbane charms are drawing more visitors every year, and in Edmonton, the second-largest Fringe Theatre Festival in the world has long been a magnet for international travelers. In the badlands, the strong pull of paleontology, anchored by the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, draws more than half a million visitors every year.

But the mountains still receive top billing, and with good reason. A practiced mix of otherworldly natural beauty and creature comforts — the Alberta Rockies have within their midst some of the finest resorts, inns, and restaurants to be found anywhere in the world — there are few places on Earth where enjoying rugged wilderness can be so relaxing.

Prince Edward Island

Prince Edward Island (PEI) may not be the world’s most exciting vacation spot, but it’s a place that has always inspired travelers I know to do exactly the one thing they came here to do: relax.

There’s something about this richly hued landscape of blue seas, henna-colored cliffs capped with purple flowers, and green, green fields that triggers a pleasant disconnection with the hurry-scurry, Twitter-it-now pace of modern life. Indeed, even change is slow here: Over the past 120 years the island’s population has grown by just 30,000.

Beyond its restorative qualities, the landscape here is remarkable for its gentleness. It’s sometimes difficult to believe pastoral PEI and boggy, blustery Newfoundland even share the same planet, never mind the same gulf. The island’s northern coast is lined with red-sand beaches washed by warm waters of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The swimming here is far warmer than that in Maine or New Hampshire. You’ll also find low, rolling hills in the interior blanketed in trees or crops (especially potatoes, for which the island is justly famous). Small farms make up the island’s backbone: One-quarter of the place is still dedicated to agriculture, more than 2,000 individual farms in all. As David Byrne might say: Same as it ever was.

Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia is more than just a pretty picture. Apparently humdrum on the surface, it resists characterization at every turn — and turns out to be friendly as all get-out. Sure, upon entry it feels much more cultured and British than wild, a better place to buy a wool sweater and shoot a round of golf than to actually get your feet wet. But then you stumble upon the blustery, boggy uplands and crags of Cape Breton Highlands National Park, and hear the wild strains of some local Celtic band’s fiddling emanating from a tiny pub, and you start to realize that people here are both tougher than you thought and full of spunk — closer to Newfies, maybe, then Brits.

Yes, this is a place of rolling hills and cultivated farms, especially near the Northumberland Straits on the northern shore — but it’s also got a vibrant, edgy arts and entertainment scene in Halifax, a city possessing more intriguing street life than plenty of cities three times its size. The place has been called a “San Francisco in miniature” (though it’s really more like a small Boston).

This is a province that has truly earned its name — “Nova Scotia” is just grammar-school Latin for “New Scotland” — with Highland Games, kilts, and more than a touch of brogue. Yet it also possesses rich little enclaves of Acadian culture, both on the far shore of Cape Breton and along the southwestern coast between Digby and Yarmouth. (Want to see a really huge wooden church in the unlikeliest of places? It’s here.)

Manitoba and Saskatchewan

Visitors don’t exactly flock to Manitoba and Saskatchewan, but that can be a plus if you like unpopulated, wide-open spaces. Located where the northern Great Plains meet the southern reaches of the subarctic boreal forests, these two provinces boast miles of fertile farmland, beautiful wilderness and parkland, and an almost infinite chain of lakes, making them terrific choices for fishing, canoeing, wildlife-watching, and more.

Manitoba is famous for its friendly people, who not only brave long, harsh winters but also till the southern prairie lands in summer, making the region a breadbasket for the nation and the world. Along the southern border outside Winnipeg, wheat, barley, canola, sunflowers, and flax wave at the roadside, the horizon is limitless, and grain elevators pierce the skyline. The province’s northern half, punctuated by Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba, is one of North America’s last wilderness frontiers, a paradise for anglers and outdoors enthusiasts of all sorts. Here, you’ll find many of the province’s thousands of lakes, which cover about 20% of Manitoba (the province is sometimes claimed to have 100,000 lakes). In the far north, Churchill is a legendary destination for viewing beluga whales (in summer) and is one of the world’s most accessible places to see polar bears (during the fall).

Five times the size of New York State, with a population of a little over a million, Saskatchewan, like neighboring Manitoba to the east, is an outdoor adventurers paradise. Hiking, fishing, camping, cross-country skiing, and wildlife viewing draw visitors to the province’s two national parks and 33 provincial parks. The two major cities are the capital, Regina, which is home to one of North America’s largest urban parks, and Saskatoon, a progressive university city.
