Canada an Overview

Canada is the largest North American country with Ottawa as its capital. Illustrious for its serene and unscathed mesmerizing landscapes, Canada nurtures an amalgamation of cultures and a polygonal lineage. Although in many respects, it resembles its southern neighbour, the USA but the prolonged history of European colonialism still reflects in its distinct socio-cultural systems. With an admirable economic and technological progression, Canada is counted amongst the wealthiest countries of the world and a major tourist destination. French and English are the official languages with an ethnically diverse population living amicably. Calgary, Alberta; Delta, British Columbia, Hamilton, Ontario, Regina and Saskatchewan are the major cities.


Canada has the highest educational spending per capita and Canadian universities are world renowned for their high academic standards and prominence of research in post-secondary education. In spite of high education standards, the cost of education is reasonably affordable as compared to the US and the UK. Furthermore, Canada is acclaimed as one of the "best places to live" with a vibrant culture suitable for expatriate population and international students. Government promotes cultural diversity and supports education with policies that are favorable for international students. A large number of residents of Indian origins and congenial bi-lateral ties between Canada and India are an added advantage.


The education system is divided into 3 tiers i.e., elementary, secondary, and post-secondary. The education system in Canada for an international student mainly has two options: community colleges and universities. The student can start from diploma or advanced level diploma to bachelors after HSC. The student can pursue post graduate level studies either in community college or universities.
