Across its 10 provinces, six time zones, many cities and towns, and numerous higher education institutions, Canada has it all. But where in Canada are you going to study?

Compared with other industrialized countries around the world, studying in Canada has a unique set of advantages. With quality and affordable tuition, safe towns and cities, employment options (both during and after the study period), and as a pathway to permanent immigration, the decision to study in Canada can be a life-changing one.

There is much to consider when deciding on a study location in Canada. Some people prefer large colleges and universities in big, bustling cities, while others prefer the intimacy of a small town. How significant a factor is tuition fees and cost of living? Are you coming to Canada with a long-term vision to work after graduation and perhaps apply for permanent residence and, eventually, Canadian citizenship? Each Canadian province has unique advantages for prospective international students.

All these issues, and more, are dealt with in this Provinces and Locations section. We have dedicated pages on each Canadian province and its higher education institutions. From here, you can learn more and begin your clear path to studying in Canada.
