From our experience, coming to Canada at the age of 15 years, or grade 9, would be the best time. Here are the top three reasons:
Canada is one of the world's top 5 countries when it comes to the education system in 2021, according to a study by the U.S. News.
Many international students in Canada get to enjoy the culturally diverse and welcoming community while also getting the opportunities to explore their career options and follow their dreams.
Furthermore, most educational institutions at all levels also offer extra support for international students whether it be English, French, academics, emotional or social support. You will live and study in a society wherein people do care about you.
Beyond the top-tier education system, Canada also offers Universal Healthcare benefits to international students through provincial public health insurance. Getting medical treatment in Canada is so much more affordable than in other countries with the Universal Healthcare System such as the U.S.
International students in Canada are also eligible to work while they study (see FAQ). Upon graduation from an eligible program, the graduates can apply for the Post-Graduation Work Permit to work in Canada and gain a valuable Canadian work experience, and the required number of hours, to apply for the Permanent Residence status.
