The first people in Canada crossed the Bering Straits from Asia. In the north the Inuit lived by hunting seals, walruses and whales. However no permanent European settlements were made in Canada until the early 17th century. In 1642 the French founded Montreal. The new colony in Canada was called New France. By 1685 the population of New France was about 10,000. By 1740 it was 48,000. After the War of the Spanish Succession (1701-1713) France was forced to recognize British control of Hudson Bay and Newfoundland. The French were also forced to cede Nova Scotia to Britain. Meanwhile in the early 19th century the population of Canada grew rapidly boosted by many migrants from Britain. A shipbuilding industry flourished in Canada and canals were built to help commerce. More than 60,000 Canadian men died in the First World War. Meanwhile Manitoba was the first province of Canada to allow women to vote in provincial elections in 1916. Like other countries Canada suffered in the recession of 2009. However Canada soon recovered. In April 2012 unemployment in Canada stood at 8.1%. However by September 2013 it had fallen to 6.9%. Today Canada is a prosperous country and it has vast natural resources. Today the population of Canada is 35 million.
The economy of Canada is a highly developed mixed economy with 10th largest GDP by nominal and 17th largest GDP by PPP in the world. As with other developed nations, the country’s economy is dominated by the service industry, which employs about three quarters of Canadians. Canada has the fourth highest total estimated value of natural resources, valued at US$33.2 trillion in 2016. It has the world’s third largest proven petroleum reserves and is the fourth largest exporter of petroleum. It is also the fourth largest exporter of natural gas. Canada is considered an “energy superpower” due to its abundant natural resources.
Canada is often associated with cold weather and snow, but in reality, its climate is as diverse as its landscape. Generally, Canadians enjoy four very distinct seasons, particularly in the more populated regions along the US border. Daytime summer temperatures can rise to 35°C and higher, while lows of -25°C are not uncommon in winter. More moderate temperatures are the norm in spring and fall.
Throughout Canada’s history, its culture has been influenced by European culture and traditions, especially British and French, and by its own indigenous cultures. Over time, elements of the cultures of Canada’s immigrant populations have become incorporated into mainstream Canadian culture.
Out of all the many choices available to students, Canada comes out on top. In fact, the number of international students has risen dramatically over the last few years. Why the sudden infatuation with Canada and its maple leaf? Here are some good reasons to choose Canada for your studies:
Live in a bilingual environment
Canada is a bilingual country, which makes studying here an excellent opportunity to develop your language skills and boost your prospects for an interesting career. Coursework in French and English is an integral part of Canada’s educational system, which enriches its cultural and community life.
Benefit from a world-class education
Canadian college and university diplomas are recognized around the world. The Canadian educational system encourages cross-disciplinary studies and the development of transferable skills (e.g., critical thinking, teamwork and communications) and uses cutting-edge technology and digital media.
Gain work experience in Canada after you graduate
The Canadian government offers a work program to students who have obtained a diploma from a post-secondary school in Canada and are looking to gain work experience. This is an excellent way to continue to live in Canada while diversifying and developing your professional skills.
Ride Canada’s tech wave
The telecommunications, digital media, video game, biotech and aeronautical engineering industries are particularly strong in Canada. In addition, Canada was the first country to link its schools and libraries to the Internet through its innovative SchoolNet program. It is therefore not surprising that nearly 90% of Canadian households are connected to the Internet. In fact, according to a study by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA), Canadians rank 2nd in the world for the average number of hours spent online per user (41.3 hours per month).
Enjoy an excellent quality of life
According to QS World University Rankings, three Canadian cities, Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, made the list of the top 50 student cities. The ranking was based on several criteria, including affordability, the diversity of the student population, and employers’ perception of graduates on the job market.
Have an enriching cultural experience
Canada has a highly diverse population, resulting in a rich and vibrant cultural scene. To begin exploring what Canada has to offer, visit each province’s tourism website.
Discover the country’s natural beauty
Canada is an extremely vast country: Its surface area is 14 times larger than that of France. It offers a multitude of magnificent landscapes that can be explored throughout the country’s four distinct seasons. Many Canadians complain about the country’s harsh winters, but the cold season provides an opportunity for dedicated skiers and ice skaters to practice their sport in majestic surroundings.
Work While Studying
Gain valuable work experience and supplement your spending allowance with part-time student jobs for international students. While you must supply sufficient evidence that you can pay for your tuition and living expenses before you arrive in Canada, there are a number of work permit programs for international students and their spouses/common law partners that make working in Canada possible. Working in Canada can go a long way towards helping you establish business contacts for the future and can even help you immigrate after graduation.
The Off-Campus Work Permit Program authorizes you to work up to 20 hours per week during regular academic sessions, and full time during scheduled breaks (for example, winter and summer holidays, and spring break).
The Co-op/Internship Work Permit Program is available to international students whose intended employment is an essential part of their program of study in Canada as certified by their Canadian academic institution. The work portion of this program can form up to 50 percent of the program of study.
On-campus work opportunities:
International students who hold valid study permits and who are studying full time at eligible Canadian public and private universities or colleges may also be eligible to work on-campus at the institution where they study without a work permit.
WORK AFTER STUDY
Canada’s education system is respected internationally for its intensive and practical approach towards post – secondary education. Degrees from Canadian universities are valued and accepted by employers all over the world. As a matter of fact, the education provided by some of Canada’s reputed universities is considered to be at par with the education level of the reputed universities in the U.S and the Commonwealth countries.
After your graduation, you will have the option of working not only in Canada and India but in countries all across the world as Canadian degrees are internationally recognized. The Canadian Government is known to have a friendly attitude towards international students and provides them with ample opportunities to live and work in Canada after they complete their studies. Through the ‘Post – Study Work Permit’, international students in Canada can easily continue staying in Canada after their graduation for a maximum period of up to 3 years even if they do not find a job immediately. You should apply for a post – graduation work permit within 90 days of receiving your final results.
In Canada, international students who have graduated in fields related to Automobiles, Construction and Healthcare are known to find jobs easily as compared to graduates from other disciplines.
However, it is important to keep in mind that the chances of you getting a good job in Canada after your graduation primarily depend on your personal traits, ability and qualities as well as the reputation of the academic institution you have graduated from apart from your field. A good student with strong communication skills is likely to find a job irrespective of the current demand for new workers in his/her field.
