Study in Canada

An enormous landmass :Canada is a huge country. It has a total land area of 9,984,670 square kilometres, making it the second largest country in the world. It takes seven days to drive from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Vancouver, British Columbia. Canada has six separate time zones—Newfoundland, Atlantic, Eastern, Central, Mountain and Pacific.

Canada is the 33rd largest country in the world in terms of population                                                                                                                  

Canada's education system is excellent and ranks among the best in the world.Moreover Canadian tuition fees are among the lowest in English-speaking countries.

Nature and four distinct seasons: While Canada has big cities, certain cities almost never have snow in the winter while other cities may get a lot. There's something for everyone, including indoor and outdoor recreational activities at no or low cost.           

Health Insurance: All Canadians and permanent residents may apply for health insurance. When you have health insurance you do not have to pay directly for most health-care services. They are paid for through your taxes. When you use health-care services, you simply show your health insurance card to the hospital or medical clinic.

Private Transportation :Many Canadian families have one or more cars. Canadians either buy their cars new or used or they lease them, which is a form of rental. It is the law that all cars must be insured and registered with your provincial or territorial government. Car insurance can be expensive, but it protects you and other drivers in case of an accident. In most provinces, you can find more information by calling the Insurance Bureau of Canada.

Public transportation : Public transportation choices vary across Canada. Large cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver have the most options for public transportation with buses, urban trains or subways. Passengers must go to bus stops and train stations to wait for buses and trains. Some cities also have services called Park and Ride. If you live far from a bus stop you can drive your car to a special parking area, park your car and then take the bus or train. Smaller towns and rural areas usually do not have public transportation, but many have a local taxi service.

  • possess a valid study permit;
  • have been a full-time student at a participating institution for at least 6 months
  • are in good academic standing (minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher)

Working After Graduation
Students who complete a degree, diploma or certificate program that is at least 8 months in duration may be eligible for an open work permit through the Post-Graduate Work Permit Program. This program is available after you graduate and is only available once in a lifetime. Even if you complete more than one program in Canada you can only apply to this program once. The validity of your work permit is dependent on the length of the program you complete. If your program is less than two years in duration your work permit will be granted for the same number of months as your program. If your program is two years or longer in duration you will qualify for a three year work permit. The length of your program is defined by the institution and not by the length of time in which it takes you to complete your degree.
