Why so many people come to Canada to study?
In the past three years, Educations.com, a global education website, has conducted questionnaire surveys on international students from more than 100 countries around the world every year, and selected the “Top Ten Best Countries to Study Abroad in the Year” list.
Relying on its excellent teaching quality, superior national welfare and immigration advantages, Canada has topped the list for two consecutive years, and this year it is only slightly inferior to Australia.

Advantages of studying in Canada
As a popular country for studying abroad, Canada attracts hundreds of thousands of international students every year, so let’s take stock today, what makes studying in Canada so attractive.
1. High cost performance
Canada is dominated by public education. Universities are funded by the provinces, and tuition fees are relatively affordable.
The cost of studying abroad and living in Canada for one year is 150,000-250,000, which is half the cost of universities of the same level in many western developed countries.
2. Easy to get Maple Leaf Card
International students can find any employer to accumulate work experience in Canada with the graduation work permit, and apply for Canadian permanent residence through a variety of immigration projects on the basis of meeting certain conditions.
40% of Canadian international students will choose to apply to become Canadian permanent residents after graduation.
The Canadian government has always been friendly to international talents, especially for international students who have received higher education in their own country.
For example, Ontario has always given preferential treatment to international students, and graduates of all majors in Ontario can directly apply for immigration without an offer from an employer.
According to the “2022 World Migration Report”, Canada has set a three-year target of 1.3 million new immigrants: in 2022, Canada has raised this year’s immigration target to 432,000, and will increase it to 451,000 in 2024 .
Data from Statistics Canada also shows that between 2008 and 2018, the number of applicants for Post-Graduation Work Permits increased from 10,300 per year to 64,700.
3. Springboard for studying abroad
Applicants who are studying in Canadian high schools and undergraduates can apply to top universities in the United States as international students. Compared with domestic ordinary universities or even universities, graduates of Canadian schools have more gold content in terms of GPA.
This is not to say that the quality of education in Chinese universities is not high. Rather, the admissions officers of American universities are more familiar with the education situation of Canadian schools than unfamiliar Chinese universities.
Therefore, due to the influence of the cost of studying and the preference of studying abroad, Canada can also be used as a stepping stone for further study in the future, and apply for top universities in the United States.
4. Open work visa policy
Compared with other mainstream study abroad countries in the world, Canada has a simpler graduate work visa policy.
All international students who graduate from designated educational institutions in Canada can apply for a 1-3-year work visa according to the length of their schooling.
