Pre-departure guide for international students

1. Introduction

Dear Student,

Congratulations on your decision to join thousands of international students studying and doing research in Canada!

Canadian universities consistently rank among the best in the world, while Canada is continually rated one of the best countries in the world in which to live. Students studying in Canada invariably return home academically strong, with fond memories of their student years.

As many students will attest in this guide, Canada offers a wonderful cross-cultural experience, able to assist you with second-language development and to foster a solid network of international connections to last a lifetime.

Known for tolerance and our welcoming nature, Canada is characterized by a vibrant, inclusive culture that draws strength from the many immigrant groups that have made our country their home. We thank you for choosing Canada, and welcome the contribution you will make during your time with us.

As you prepare to embark on your Canadian academic adventure, we wish you the best of luck and hope you enjoy our country to the fullest.

Bon voyage!
