Living In Canada

The United Nations ranked Canada as one of the best places in the world to live! This assessment was based upon Canada’s achievements in terms of educational attainment, life expectancy, national income and general quality of life. It also included Canada’s abundance of fresh water, comfortable population density, low incidence of violent crime and a health care system that is a model for the world. The population in Canada is mainly split between English speakers and French speakers and has one of the lowest population density ratios in the world.

Canada is one of most diverse places in the world, in terms of geography, climate, culture and society. Life in Toronto will be totally different to life in the Northern Territories: every province has its own unique culture and lifestyle. There are three main types of accommodation while studying:

Homestay – a stay with a Canadian family
University accommodation – such as halls of residence, dormitories
Private accommodation – House and flat rentals

There is no shortage of student accommodation options in Canada.

The cost of student accommodation varies from province to province and city to city, but costs in Canada are considered reasonable. In homestays you can expect to pay an initial placement fee of up to $200 CDN and then pay between $400 and $800 CDN a month. The average cost of residence/dormitory rooms in Canada is between $3,000 and $7,500 CDN per academic year. The cost of private rented shared accommodation in Canada usually falls between $250 and $700 CDN.
