Canada is as varied as it is vast, stretching over 7,000km from the Atlantic to the Pacific. 90% of the country’s 34 million inhabitants live less than 100 miles of the US border in the south leaving the majority of the 10,000,000 square kilometres of wilderness untouched.
Canada is made up of 10 provinces and 3 territories in the north. The Yukon Territory, Northwest Territory and Nunavut make up Canada’s three territories which umbrella the provinces in the south. The majority of the territories remain uninhabited and air transport is often the only way around
Why Canadian Education
Canada has developed a first-rate education system with high standards. A Canadian degree, diploma or certificate is recognized globally as being equivalent to those from the United States and Commonwealth countries.
International students who have graduated from a Canadian university or college have the opportunity to work in Canada for up to one year after they receive their degree or diploma. International students in Canada can work off-campus with a work permit.
From safe neighborhoods in some of North America’s most cosmopolitan cities to top-notch health care and public transportation, excellence permeates every aspect of Canadian life – including a world class higher education system. The United Nations has consistently ranked Canada as one of the top three places in the world to live. Canada earned high marks for its access to education, high life expectancy, and low crime rates.
Scholarships, grants, and bursaries are available to both international students and Canadian students, often at the postgraduate level. They provide funds to students that do not need to be paid back. Scholarship funding in Canada is limited and highly competitive.
Many Canadian universities and a few colleges have a limited number of scholarships or other forms of financial assistance for international students. These vary from institution to institution and many of these are administered only to incoming international students.
In some cases, international students are automatically considered for these entrance scholarships and awards when they apply to the university. In other cases, scholarships are competitive and students must apply by a specific deadline, or the award may only be open to students who have already received acceptance from the university.
A Canadian education can provide that extra edge for foreign students seeking to return to their home country for their careers, although many international students wish to pursue their careers and establish themselves permanently in Canada.
Using a point system, an applicant is assessed under the federal skilled worker class according to various factors that will indicate whether there is a strong likelihood that the applicant and dependents will successfully establish in Canada. Ideal applicants under the skilled worker class will possess employment skills and experience compatible with occupations “open” to prospective immigrants to Canada.
For international students who wish to remain in Canada as Permanent Residents, ability to work off-campus is critical for potentially working towards the minimum 1 year continuous full-time (or full-time equivalent) work experience requirement for their Skilled Worker Permanent residence application. With careful planning and skilled work experience under their belt, international students and foreign graduates can now successfully pursue an accessible route to Permanent Residence in Canada.
