"There are no limits to the majestic future which lies before the mighty expanse of Canada with its virile, aspiring, cultured, and generous hearted people. " – Winston Churchill
1. World Class Education
When it comes to pursuing an international education, it is important to get an internationally recognized diploma or degree. A Canadian post-secondary education is recognized both in Canada and around the world. Our education system uses cutting-edge technology and digital media. We also encourage cross disciplinary studies and the development of transferable skills (e.g., communication, teamwork, analysis).
2. Cultural Diversity
Career advancements and business successes are built on relationships. Understanding and appreciating a person’s culture is one of the first steps in building a successful relationship. In Canada, you will find extremely warm and welcoming people who come from varied ethnic groups with different cultures, food and lifestyle. The multicultural environment in Canada promotes friendliness and peaceful living like no other country. According to the 2016 Population Census by Statistic Canada, there are more than 200 different ethnic groups living in Canada from different parts of the world, like a mini–United Nation. There is no better place to appreciate cultural diversity and see the opportunities that it offers.
3. Quality of Life
Canada has been ranked no. 1 both in 2020 and 2021 as no. 1 in Quality-of-Life rankings by the Best Country Rankings. This is based on an equally weighted average of scores from nine country attributes that relate to quality of life in a country: affordable, a good job market, economically stable, family friendly, income equality, politically stable, safe, well-developed public education system and well-developed public health system. Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver are ranked in the Top 20 Student cities by QS Top University.
4. Cost of living

Studying in Canada is more affordable than other popular destination due to lower cost of living in Canada. Our tuition fee is also lower than those from other popular study destinations like US, UK and Australia.
