Canada is known for being an open, progressive country that attracts millions of internationals from around the world who live, study, and work there. It’s easy to understand why! With free healthcare, a fair cost of living, and plenty to explore, Canada is a dream for urbanites and nature-lovers alike. There’s plenty of hiking, skiing, and other outdoor activities, as well as trendy, cosmopolitan cities in which to spend the weekend. Combining the best of American, European, and its own indigenous cultures, Canada embodies a beautiful mix of cultures that it confidently calls its own.
Canada’s multiculturalism can be felt and seen in the vast array of art, cuisine, music, and literature, and film. Regardless of your background, the only prerequisite to make it in Canada is the hardiness and spirit to make it through Canada’s long, harsh winters. But no doubt, once you’ve spent some time in Canada, you’ll learn to love the outdoors, just like the locals do.
Canada is also a great place to practice your English-language skills, if you’re not already a native. And if you are, it’s going to be easy to make yourself understand. Although there are two national languages in Canada, English and French, English remains the predominant language spoken throughout Canada, unless you’re in the province of Quebec. Therefore, Canada is a popular destination for students from around the world!
