Why is everyone moving to study and work in Canada?

Canada is a modern, progressive, open and tolerant multi-cultural society with 2 official languages – English and French.

I bet you knew this already.

Now, did you know that: Over the past 10 years, the Canadian government’s policies have been directed at increasing international student population. In 2015, study shows that there were over 350,000 international students studying in Canada. This number is expected to increase to 500,000 students by 2020.

Also, one of the most distinctive features of the Canadian educational system is that each of the 10 provincial governments is responsible for the universities in their province.

As an international student, you can work in Canada without a work permit. While you study in Canada, even after graduation, you can enter the Canadian labour force.
