About Canada




 

Canada’s education system ranks among the best in the world, but that’s not the only reason more than 175,000 students come to study here every year. Reasonable tuition fees, a diverse population, and the opportunity to become a permanent resident after graduation are just some of the benefits.

Want to come to Canada as an international student?  Contact us and CES can walk with you through the process as well as help you find the right educational institution.

Housing

From temporary accommodation to student housing to private rentals, housing is really your foremost concern after you land in Canada, and Canada Campus is here to help. Our goal is to provide you with up-to-date information about housing so you can find a place to call your own as soon as possible.

Contact us and we will provide you with need-to-know information, provincial and federal opportunities, information on different types of housing, and more.

Education

As the saying goes, knowledge is power. So before you step foot in Canada, you must research schools, apply, get accepted and more. CES can help you as your one-stop resource for everything you need to know to study in Canada as an international student. Contact us and tell us more about your preferences for your studies and we will help you find the right school for you!

Health

Canada’s public health care system is revered worldwide, and is a major draw for many immigrants to Canada. The health care system is federally funded, but is managed by each province and may differ depending on where you live.

CES can provide you with all you need to know about health care in general, province-specific information and unique programs geared exclusively toward international students.  Contact us if you need help.

Daily Life

While you may spend most of your days on campus with your nose in a book or at a computer keyboard, there’s more to life in Canada than just getting good grades.

At CES, we know that you’ll want to take time out of your busy study schedule to have fun. And you’ll also need to take care of daily chores and tasks, from shopping to arranging transportation. Contact us if you need more information.

Working

As an international student, you must come to Canada with enough money to live and pay your bills while you are studying, without needing to work. Whether you have saved up the money or your family is supporting you, do not come to Canada thinking you will work while studying to pay your tuition and other bills. There’s no guarantee you will be allowed. CES can help you understand the rules to be able to work while studying.

It is, in fact, possible to work in Canada - both on and off campus - while you are here as an international student, but there are restrictions. As a general rule, anyone who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident must have a work permit for all work in Canada. There are some exceptions for international students.  Contact us to find out more.

Immigration

Once you’ve been accepted into an academic institution, CES can provide the information you need to apply for a study permit. We suggest that you give yourself at least three months before school begins to complete this process.

To qualify, you must have a valid passport and show evidence that you have the financial means to cover tuition and living expenses, including return transportation. You may also be required to get a visitor visa. We can help you determine what you’ll need to get to Canada easily, and efficiently.

And, did you know that international students are now eligible to apply for permanent residency under the Canadian Experience Class (CEC)?  CES has access to a top-notch team of immigration firm who will guide you through the visa application process. See our Legal & Visa Services section for more or contact us to find out more about immigrating to Canada.

Community

Canada is said to have the friendliest people in the world. It is also a very diverse country, with people from many different cultures. Part of living in Canada is celebrating our differences in a spirit of equality, and reaching across cultures to make new friends.

Having left most of your family and friends back in your country of origin, it’s important to make new connections in your new community. There are plenty of opportunities to meet new friends and network in person or online.
