Excellent idea and well done on your ambitious aspiration !
Ok, so in this blog, I will not be talking about Canada’s amazing geography and physical beauty. I
will not be talking about its vastness (second largest country after Russia) and expansive
wilderness. I will not be talking about Canada’s history and successes on the world stage.
Rather, I want to talk about what’s important to YOU : how you can make Canada your new home,
via study abroad.
First, let me remind you of why Canada is ideal to make it your new home.
Canada ranked #1 country in the world for Quality of Life.
What do you think of when you hear Quality of Life (QoL) ? Good supply of food and housing ?
Quality education ? Affordable health care ? Sustainable employment ? For your information,
QoL also includes intangibles such as job security, individual freedom, political stability, and
environmental quality. Social scientists agree that material wealth is not the most important factor
in assessing a life lived well.
Well, Canada received this highly prised rank, #1 country in the world in 2020 for Quality of Life
(for the fifth consecutive year !), in a study conducted by UN News & World Report, based on “75
different metrics”. According to the study, Canada placed number 1 for its strong job market,
good education system, safe environment, and political stability. Not bad, right ?
Now, let me talk about how you can make Canada your new home.
The Canadian government is always looking for good people who want to become Canadian. It is
one of a number of highly sought after countries (see my other articles about Australia, New
Zealand, and USA) by aspiring people who want to make a new life for themselves and their
There are multiple ways to make Canada your new home. I want to talk about one particular way
of how you can do that happen : by coming to Canada as a student.
To come to Canada, even as a tourist, you must have a valid visa. Every type of visa has
requirements. Some are more difficult than others. For a student permit, there are a number of
requirements and steps that you must meet and pass before your student visa is issued to you by
the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
