The Province

Ontario is an excellent place to learn, live and work. With nearly 40 per cent of the country’s population living in the province, Ontario is home to some of Canada’s top universities and colleges. More than half of Canada’s new immigrants choose to settle in the province, making its cities diverse and thriving cultural centres. Schools offer international students a world-class education and first-class immersion experience, which is probably why 60 per cent of international students studying in Canada choose to study in Ontario.
The best international educational experiences are academically, socially and culturally enriching.

Ontario has the largest number of universities and post-secondary colleges of any province in Canada.

Education that knows no borders. Students gain a competitive edge because degrees, diplomas and certificates received from Ontario’s universities and colleges are recognized worldwide.

In spring, the weather is cool but pleasant, with flowers blooming all across the city. The summers are hot and perfect for hitting the beach, a patio, or just strolling around town. In autumn, Toronto is perhaps its most beautiful as the leaves change colors, and the trees create a living work of art with countless shades of yellow, orange, and red.

Those who immigrate to Canada enjoy free, world-class healthcare. In fact, some of the best hospitals in the whole world are in Toronto, including Sick Kids Hospital, the best children’s cancer hospital on the planet, and Toronto General Hospital, the best hospital in Canada.
