About Canada

  • Overview

    Canada, like its aboriginal namesake suggests, is a meeting place, of peoples, beliefs, and ideas. Canada’s population is extremely diverse comprising of peoples from all over the globe who have learnt to work, play, and live together in peace.

    Canada is a land of freedom, where people are free to learn, to live, to grow. All religions and cultures are respected in Canada ,regardless of colour, race, age and sexual orientation. Canada is a land steeped in histories, the natural history of the land, the native history of the aboriginal people, and the many histories of the residents of Canada and their places of origin have crossed and overlapped to create a colourful set of circumstances that have allowed the country to flourish.

    Canada is a global leader in education and innovation, leading in technological integration and “green” or environmentally-friendly infrastructures. Whether for business or pleasure, Canada promises to be a memorable and productive choice of destination.

  • Climate

    Contrary to popular belief, Canada experiences a variety of different temperatures and seasons apart from its wintry deep freeze. People in Canada can enjoy brisk winters, sunny summers, refreshing springs and beautiful autumns. Winters in Canada can begin around the end of October and may continue into late April depending on one’s location in the country. During the Canadian summers, temperatures can rise up to and above 30 degrees Celsius. Because of its four seasons, Canada experiences a wide variety of plant and animal life, in spring tulips sprout plentifully painting the sidewalks and parks vibrant shades of yellow, orange, pink and purple. In fall, the burning hues of red and orange are contrasted by the rich tones of gold and brown as the leaves all change colour in preparation for the coming winter.

  • Culture

    Canadian culture is best described as a cultural mosaic. Each piece retains its individual quality but it is also contributes to the overall sum, which is distinctly beautiful. While there is a strong Canadian identity, immigrants to Canada still value their roots and are free to express their original cultural heritage openly. Canada’s culture is not one of assimilation but rather acceptance, and so on one street in any corner of the country you will see many different people with many different backgrounds interacting on a daily basis. One of the direct benefits of this symbiotic system is that cultures collide and blend, creating a multitude of interesting combinations that everyone is free to enjoy. Canadian culture was originally European dominated, specifically French and British as they were the earliest settlers of the land, but the aboriginal population has been pushing for greater and greater influence and has seen much more participation in the public and bureaucratic sphere recently. Also, Canada’s welcoming immigration policy has lead to an influx of migrant peoples from all over the world, and so even when travelling from afar, it is never hard to find a little piece of home in Canada.

  • Transport

    There are many options for commute in Canada. Train, bus, or subway are the most affordable options. In major cities, like Toronto or Ottawa, you are sure to have access to a complete system of travel. In Toronto, you can access the subway, an underground system of trains, on one side of the city, ride to the other side of the city and then, if necessary, take a bus to your specific location. There is also an intricate system of railways that connect one end of Canada to another. The cost of public transportation depends on your method of travel, and what city you are travelling in. Fares can range from CA$3. for the bus to almost $8 for a ride on the GO train.

  • Healthcare

    Health insurance is often paid when people go to Canada as students or visitors. Most Canadian universities require students to be covered by health insurance of some kind. Without health insurance, hospitals may refuse to treat you in event of an emergency. If you do require medical assistance, there are plenty of options available to you, there are walk-in clinics, hospitals and telephone health lines you can call for advice about a medical situation.

  • Sports & Recreation

    Sports are one of the main sources of recreation in Australia. Due to the moderate climate, outdoor activity is common all year round. Tennis, golf, basketball, swimming, horse racing, rugby and of course cricket make up the most followed sports in the country. For adventure seekers, Canada has plenty to offer. Options for adrenaline seekers include but are not limited to: skydiving, bungee jumping, mountain biking, indoor racing, scaling the bridge, rappelling, paintball, fishing and rock- climbing.

  • Part-time / Casual Work

    Job opportunities in Canada are varied and diverse; your ability to find a job in Canada is directly related to your fluency in English. The more comfortable you are with English the better, as the customer service sector is where you are likely to find work. Retail is the most popular choice for part time work in Canada but there is are great opportunities everywhere if you know where to look.

    Usually, part time workers make the general minimum wage rate which is between $8.75 $10.25/hour, however, as students, companies may pay you a student rate which is $9.60/hour in Ontario , be sure to clarify this with your employer at your interview so you can have a full picture of what your job will entail. Working at a mall will usually result in a general minimum wage. Working as a waiter or waitress, you will make a lower base rate, at least $8.90 in Ontario but due to the type of shifts and tips you receive from customers, you may find yourself making more money this way than at a mall or clothing store.

  • Night Life

    Night Life in Canada is active to say the least, whether you want to dance the night away in one of night clubs in the heart of the city, or go for a romantic dinner in a classy and sophisticated lounge there is plenty to do once the sun goes down. Live theatre and musical performances happen nightly, weekly, monthly, depending on what you are looking for. Dine on cuisine from around the world or grab one of Canada’s proudest accomplishments, a nice cold beer. The legal age to consume alcohol in Canada is 19, except in Quebec where it is 18. Coffee shops are always bursting with activity and usually hold events Friday to Sunday to entice caffeine cravers. There are also thousands of social unions that you can join to meet like minded people to accompany you on your nighttime excursions. If all else fails you can always catch a movie on the big screen as there are many theatres open 7 days a week. In the warmer weather why not try a drive in theatre and enjoy the latest releases in the comfort and privacy of your own car.
