Canada is world’s leading immigration country with abundant educational resources and excellent social benefits. With only 38 million people in population, Canada has over 100 world class universities ranging from University of Toronto, McGill University, University of Waterloo, McMaster University, York University, Queens University, University of British Columbia, and many more. In particular, University of Toronto has been ranked top 20 universities in the world for 10 consecutive years.
According to theAssociation of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), there are currently about 100 registered public universities and community colleges in Canada. With a limited population of only about 35 million people and vast supply of post-secondary institutions. Canada is inevitably one of the countries with the highest amount of educational resources per capita.
All Canadian universities are public institutions and are funded by the government of Canada. Many Canadian universities are ranked among the best universities in the world. For example, University of Toronto has been ranked number 17thworld wide consistently for 10 consecutive years.Canada does not have universityadmissionexams; students who study in a Canadian high school are admitted by universities solely based on the grades they achieve in grade 12. This is much less competitive than applying directly to Canadian universities as a foreign student.
Parents of international students who are currently considering having your child study abroad should consider having your child study in Canada as a high school student to take advantage of the excellent education resources and less competitive university admission requirements.
