Indeed, in Canada, in contrast to the USA, where all of the immigrants trying to make Americans rightfully there multicultural society.

In addition, unlike the United States, Canada - a very quiet country. It does not seek to dominate the world, because of what terrorists do not annoy the country of blue lakes.

In Canada, a low crime rate and a high standard of living and political stability. And, last but not least - the standard of living in Canada is more homogeneous than the U.S. - there are few very poor and the very rich, and the parade of wealth - is not accepted.

This of the important components of the country's prosperity is a high emphasis on education. In Canada, education is spent on average the same amount as in the other member states, "the Group of Eight." According to the UN on the development of education in the country of maple syrup is allocated 5.2% of GDP, which amounts to U.S. $ 38,500 per capita. Moreover, well-funded are not only prestigious universities in Canada, as is done in many countries, but also ordinary state colleges.

Canadian universities equip classrooms and labs with the latest technology, equipment, audience latest projection equipment and smart-boards (interactive whiteboards), the services of the students advanced research centers, an extensive library, computer classes and unlimited internet.

Canadian universities have a strong faculty. As a rule, the number of doctors in the leading universities of higher than 90% of the total number of teachers, and in the most prestigious universities: Toronto, York, Waterloo, Guelph, McMaster is 95%. And Canadian professors have much to learn. Canadians are leaders in the development of satellite navigation systems and life support systems, plastics and biological materials, methods, stress and pain ...

According to official data, only the university academic units produce 150-200 thousand jobs in Canada every year. As a result of high public finance, education in Canada is cheaper and no worse than in the U.S. or UK.

The principle of "quality education for less" rated themselves pragmatic Americans, readily come to Canada for higher education. However, for our compatriots Canada offers a number of no less attractive features.

Education in Canada to obtain permanent residence
The uniqueness of Canada is that it is - one of the few countries, which offers many immigration programs that greatly facilitate the acquisition of a residence permit.

This fact distinguishes it from densely populated countries in Europe and the U.S., severely limiting or even reducing to almost zero immigration.

The very fact that education in Canada is a significant advantage to the immigration officials, who will consider the request. If you study in Canada over 2 years (we are talking about post-secondary education), for acquiring immigrant status on one of the categories, most likely - Category Skilled worker (qualified person), you get extra points in the parameter Adaptability (adaptability).

Moreover, training in Canada in one of the official languages ​​(English or French) will gain additional points in the parameter Ability in English and / or French. These advantages significantly increase the amount of the total pass rate. And if you have a job offer from a local employer, which is much easier to get directly in Canada, then consider that a permanent resident of this attractive and stable country is guaranteed.

Graduates, working legally in Canada for skilled jobs from the list of NOC - Skill Type 0 (managerial occupations), Skill Level A (professional occupations) or B (technical occupations and skilled trades) over 1 year after graduation are eligible to apply for immigration special program "Canadian Experience Class" with the most loyal conditions. Preliminary training should be at least two years (for this program do not fall courses and a number of one-year certification or degree programs).

In a pilot project to graduates of public universities graduate of Ontario to begin the immigration process is not even necessary to have a job offer.

In addition, the Government of Canada annually compiles a list of professions most in demand in the job market. Study in Canada by one of these specialties guarantees employment and makes the passage of the immigration process as simple as possible.

It is no secret that many graduates after graduation can not find work in their field mainly because of lack of experience.

In some cases, this problem can lead to a loss of skills, such as in the case of linguists who need constant language practice. No such problems in students who were educated in Canada.

Canada - this is one of the few countries that provides a legal possibility for foreign students to stay in the country to work in the specialty after a full course of study.

Special program of Post-Graduation Work Permit Program allows graduates to work in Canada after graduation for a period equal to the period of training, but not more than 3 years. To find a job, students are given 3 months. However, given that graduates still in the learning process begins to look for a job or try their hand at the training period, as a rule, this period is sufficient.

In addition, virtually every college and university career centers are working to help their graduates find jobs, job fairs are held periodically, which accounts for employers who are interested in long-term employees.

However, if your goal is only to get work experience abroad without the prospect of permanent residence, to take up employment after graduation is not necessarily. Hallmark of Canada are not only high quality academic programs, but also the optimal combination of education or science and practice.

Thus, university hospitals are among the best in the country, and Canadian business schools are actively involved in advising employers and taxpayers.

It is a strong practical side of training programs makes Canada the most attractive country for middle and senior managers.

But most importantly - as a result of the graduates not only get a balanced education, which is highly regarded in the world, but also quite valuable in the summary record, demonstrate the practical experience in their field. This kind of practice is provided not only for higher education in colleges or universities, but also in training for certification and diploma programs.

Job search for his audience takes on the language center. After completion of the program Work and Study students receive not only a certificate of completion of language course, but also a letter from the employer on company letterhead. Such programs have a language school International English Language Centre ACCESS, Pacific Language Institute (PLI), Embassy CES, Sprachcaffe, English Bay College (EBC) and many others. Mandatory condition for such training - it should take no more than 50% of the training program. Typically, these internships are unpaid, their asset is the opportunity to gain valuable international experience to enhance their competitiveness in the labor market. Paid internships for English language courses are provided mainly to language practice in the service sector (eg, in the field of hospitality in the ski resorts in Canada) or in unskilled work. This option is most useful for students who want to recoup the cost of learning English in Canada.

Additional education (training) + internship
