Canadian Cities for International Students

Vancouver

Vancouver is the largest metropolitan area in Western Canada, and third largest in Canada, with a population of 2.6 million. Located at the southwestern corner of the coastal province of British Columbia, it is well known for its majestic natural beauty, as it is nestled between the Coast Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. It is frequently ranked as one of the “best cities to live in” and is certainly a beautiful destination to visit.

Vancouver is the city that has it all: natural beauty and cosmopolitan flair. Set between the Pacific Ocean and the coastal mountains, it has a harmonious blend of nature and urban living. Gardens, parks, and beaches are as common here as heritage buildings, restaurants, and theatres.

While maintaining the laid-back attitude of North America’s West Coast, Vancouver has managed to build an international spirit. As the third largest city in Canada, it shares an ethnic diversity and multicultural flavour with the rest of the country. It’s young, lively, and the jumping-off point for many spectacular outdoor activities.

Toronto

Toronto is the largest city in Canada and the provincial capital of Ontario. It is located in Southern Ontario on the northwestern shore of Lake Ontario. Toronto is a relatively modern city. Toronto is the nation’s centre for finance, art, publishing, theatre, music, film and sports and pulses with the international energy of six million people. This vibrant metropolis is the most multicultural city on the planet, with more than 100 different ethnic and cultural groups. Set on the shores of beautiful Lake Ontario, Toronto is a city of neighbourhoods, each with its own rich history and unique charm and character.

Montréal

Montréal is a city in the Canadian province of Quebec. It is the largest city in the province, the second-largest in the country (after Toronto) and the fifteenth-largest in North America.

European sophistication meets Canadian friendliness in Montréal, the largest French-speaking city in the world outside of Paris. This metropolis of 3.6 million offers culture around the clock in both English, and French, and most Montréalers speak both official Canadian languages. If you’re passionate about the arts, film, food and fashion, you’ll fall in love with the city as soon as you arrive. Old world architecture and new world chic, stylish shopping districts and lush green parks abound in a city whose unique character was shaped by the French, the English, and two centuries of immigrants from more than 80 countries.
