The Canadian Education System – Another Reason to Move to Canada

 

As we have mentioned time and time again, Canada is like the holy grail of countries to immigrate to – they have free health care, they are one of the friendliest countries in the world, its safe, its clean and they have a great economy. Now however, we can add one more thing to the list – the Canadian education system is fantastic (also they have Justin Trudeau – but that’s for another time).

The Canadian education system is currently the second best in the world – only after Finland with their short school days, little homework and overall progressive schooling system. However Canada is only a step behind the and excels at delivering a high quality education in comparison to their global competitors.

Here are a few facts about the Canadian education system that was published by The Organization for Economic Development (OECD):

  • Canada has the highest proportion of citizens between 25 to 64 who hold a tertiary education
  • They have the highest proportion of college graduates at an impressive 25%
  • 57% of Canadians between the ages of 25 to 35 year have tertiary education, which offers momentous protection from unemployment
  • The amount Canada spends on every primary student ($8,933 US), secondary student ($9,774 US), and tertiary student ($22,475 US) is significantly higher than that of the OECD and European countries.

Canadian educational institutions welcome international students.

Many Canadian educational institutions offer special services for international students. These services are designed to assist them in integrating into the academic community and help them throughout their stay in the foreign country. The majority of post-secondary institutions has somebody to assist international students. This person is known as the International, Overseas or Foreign Student Advisor. Most of the secondary schools that charge fees for international students offer these types of advisory services. International students should make themselves known to the Advisor as soon as possible after their arrival on campus and learn about the applicable orientation programs and other activities through the Advisor`s office.
