Student Life in Canada

Students won’t see any shortage of shopping malls, art galleries, theaters, cafeterias, and exhibition hall in the urban areas. Canadian cities and towns are rich in open to public gardens, beaches, parks, sports and leisure facilities.

Students can also indulge in a number of cultural festivals like the sounds of the Calgary Stampede, Montreal International Jazz Festival, enjoy an NHL match, and many others. One of the most important reasons why you should study in Canada is because of its welcoming and heartwarming environment.

Canada is a peaceful country and is considered very safe for living. The crime rate in the country has declined over the years. Safety of students is something very important in the country. Most of the universities keep the campus security on during the whole day. All universities in Canada have 24×7 campus security which includes security patrol cars and campus security office is always there to solve students’ grievances.

Certain universities have also instigated the ‘Walk Safe’ programme, in which the students can easily get access to public conveyance during late night hours. The Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) provide roadside assistance if your vehicle breaks down while driving in Canada.

All Cabs in Canada have assistance information found in the backseat. Also, as per United Nations, Canada is among the top 10 countries to live in the world.
