Welcome to Canada!
Canada is the second largest country in the world and our over 36 million residents have their fair share of beautiful landscapes to choose from. From mountains, oceans, prairies and forests to prairies and lakes, our landscapes are as diverse as our people.
Multiculturalism is an official policy, and we welcome citizens of all languages, cultures, religions and ethnicity. Today, approximately 20 percent of Canadians were born outside Canada. In Toronto, Canada’s largest city, this number is over 45 percent. Immigrants are a valued part of Canada’s multicultural society.
English and French are the two official languages of Canada. Today, there are approximately 18 million Anglophones – people who speak English as a first language – and 7 million Francophones – people who speak French as a first language. Most Francophones live in Quebec. However, one million Francophones live in Ontario, New Brunswick and Manitoba, with a smaller presence in other provinces.
There are many reasons to attend school and live and work in Canada. Canada has a strong economy and a need for skilled workers. We invest in education and are ranked by Bloomberg as the second best place in the world for doing Business. There’s lots of room to grow with the low cost of living and high qualify of life.
