A Canadian Education

The Canadian education system consistently ranks as one of the top in the world.  Canada’s young people are well-prepared to meet the challenges of developing skills that will help them flourish in the future.

Why study in Canada? Education is very important to Canadians and the country is second in education spending (as a percentage of GDP) among the G8 countries. The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) recently released information on student assessment with Canadian students ranking consistently high for reading, mathematics, and science of 65 countries.

British Columbia’s public education system is among the most respected in the world, which is reflected in the number of international students studying in our Province. Currently, there are an estimated 112,000 international students studying in our province. They are enrolled from Kindergarten to University.
