1. Why should I study in Canada?
Canada is a safe, peaceful, welcoming and multicultural country with a very high quality of education. For these reasons, the United Nations consistently ranks Canada as one of the best places in the world to live. The quality of education and living standards in Canada are amongst the highest in the world, but the cost of living and tuition fees for international students are generally lower than in other countries, such as the United States or the United Kingdom. As an international student in Canada, you will enjoy all of the same freedoms as Canadians – respect for human rights, equality, and a stable and peaceful society.
2. Which city is suitable for me/ how can I choose the most suitable city for my education?
Each city is unique and all of them offer amazing educational opportunities, so your choice really depends on what kind of experience you would like to have.
Halifax is the smallest of the three cities, but it is the friendliest city. Halifax has five universities and three colleges, so it is a student-friendly city that offers excellent academic opportunities. There are less international students and immigrants in Halifax than in Ottawa or Toronto, so students typically learn English more quickly.
Ottawa, the capital of Canada, is a very professional, educated, clean and active city. It has been ranked as the best city in Canada to live in, and it is a great choice if you would like to live in a medium-sized city that offers a lot of cultural festivals and events year round.
Toronto is the largest city of the three and also the most multicultural. It is a great choice if you would like to live in a large city that offers great entertainment.
3. Why should I choose CLLC instead of another school?
Our culture and our attention to individuals is our focus. Our team is comprised of friendly, genuine, educated and creative people who are dedicated to ensuring our students have the best experience in Canada and at CLLC. Students and agents continuously tell us our culture is very unique, and it is the main thing that differentiates us from other schools. We hope you have the chance to experience it!
