Canadian Cities

1. Toronto

Toronto is the business capital of Canada with the largest population of any Canadian city, approximately 6 million people in the greater metropolitan area.

Toronto is one of the world's most culturally diverse cities, has the third most heavily used urban mass transit system in North America and is often rated as one of the world's most livable cities by the Economist Intelligence Unit.

It is an ideal city as it boasts many large peaceful parks, which include Queen's Park, Christie Pits, High Park as well as the almost hidden park, Cloud Gardens, which has both open areas and a glassed-in greenhouse in downtown Toronto. While it is very modern and progressive, it is also has many quiet, serene places making it conducive to student life.

2. Vancouver

Vancouver is Canada's third largest city, having a wide variety of unique activities, especially for students. The combination of the stunning ocean, shiny skyscrapers, and majestic mountains create the most wonderful scenic views.

The city is in British Columbia, but British is only one of many cultures that exist in modern Vancouver, which includes aboriginal tribal culture, Japanese, Chinese, Punjabi, Filipino, as well as many others.

Vancouver is a "Fitness City" for Visitors and Locals where you can rent bicycles at Stanley Park, participate in a yoga class on the beach, or go sea kayaking on False Creek.

Vancouver's recreational activities make it both fun and easy for visitors and locals to interact.

It has a great environment for student life as there are many reasonably priced restaurants along with many quiet places to study in.

3. Montreal

Montreal, Canada's second biggest city is in fact an island metropolis, resting on the banks of the mighty St. Lawrence river.

It hosts international Jazz And Comedy festivals and pleases all visitors with its culinary French-Canadian delights.

This unique city, with its rich European heritage and historic streets of the newly revitalized Old-Montreal, exudes vitality like no other North American city.

Bilingual in English and French, Montreal's global mosaic of Scottish, Italian, Portuguese, Filipino, and Greek ethnicities, create a powerful exuberance which entices both locals and visitors.

A University city named after its most central attribute, Mount Royal, Montreal is definitely a great choice to study, work and simply enjoy the combination of the old and new worlds all in one.

4. Kelowna

Kelowna (population of 106,700) is the largest city in the Okanagan, and one of the fastest-growing places in Canada.

The city rests along the long Okanagan Lake at the center of a vast fruit, wine, and vegetable-growing area, with lots of sun and a resort atmosphere and lifestyle.

Kelowna has often been compared to California with its beautiful mountain and lake scenery along with pleasantly warm summers and moderately cold winters, compared to other places in the Okanagan Valley.

Watersports and golf are the main leisure activities, and it's hard to imagine a better outdoor-family-oriented vacation spot.

With plenty of marinas and beautiful beachfront parks downtown, there is no problem finding a place to enjoy the great outdoors.

A smaller city like Kelowna tends to have less students from abroad than the bigger Canadian cities.
