One of the best places to live
High academic rankings and a reputation for friendliness is great, but it’s hard to beat eight consistent years of top rankings by the United Nations as one of the world’s best places to live. Canadians are protected by a diversity of freedoms, and international students are too. The result is an exceptionally stable and peaceful society with a low crime rate.
The cost is affordable
Canada is known for having some of the lowest university tuition fees among English-speaking countries. Whatever your budget may be, you’ll find something just right for your child in a diverse range of education options.
