What do the co-discoverer of insulin, the inventors of IMAX, and the co-founder of Flickr have in common?
Need a hint? Look to the northern end of
the Americas -- to Canada.
The answer is that all of these innova-
tors received a Canadian education and
turned the skills, experience and opportu-
nities they gained into highly successful
endeavours and careers.
Canadians are rightly proud of the distin-
guished individuals who have studied in
Canadian academic institutions and of the
fact that Canada has one of the finest and
most reputable systems of higher educa-
tion in the world.
The doors to Canada's world- class edu-
cation are open to international students
from across the Americas and around the
world -- and more and more of them are
choosing to study here.
The number of international students in
Canada increased by 85 percent between
2003 and 2013, to a total of more than
300,000 in 2013.
They are attracted to Canada because of
our welcoming culture, enviable quality of
life, safe and vibrant multicultural cities,
and some of the highest-ranked educa-
tional institutions in the world.
Collectively, Canada's universities and
colleges offer more than 18,000 programs
-- in French and English -- that are recog-
nized for their uncompromising standards.
Canadian degrees and qualifications are a
seal of excellence that will unlock opportu-
nities for years to come.
The results speak for themselves: ac-
cording to one recent study, 78 percent of
university graduates in Ontario, Canada's
most populous Province, are working full-
time in an area related to their field of
study two years after graduation.
Canada's work-study programs for inter-
national students provide valuable experi-
ence and help finance their stay. What's
more, tuition and living costs are competi-
tive compared to other countries
Academic scholarships are also available
for many international students.
In fact, as part of Canada's strategy for
Engagement in the Americas, the Cana-
dian government launched a major schol-
arship program, the "Emerging Leaders in
the Americas Program, for the next gener-
ation of leaders in Latin America and the
Caribbean to develop the skills, knowledge
and global networks they need.
Just as importantly, Canada has in-
vested in university information-technol-
ogy infrastructure, research, and
innovation, creating the ideal environment
for students to develop their ideas and
grow their ambitions and potential. Many
Canadian universities support the transi-
tion from education to industry through
high-tech business incubators, such as Ry-
erson University's Digital Media Zone.
Some international students may decide
to stay and build a life in Canada after they
graduate, and there are programs de-
signed to help students achieve that objec-
A post-graduation work permit is one
example. It allows eligible students to gain
valuable Canadian skilled work experience.
With that experience, they may qualify to
apply for permanent residence in Canada
under several of Canada's economic immi-
gration programs, including the Canadian
Whether you stay in Canada perma-
nently or return home after graduation,
studying in Canada is a rewarding experi-
ence for students anywhere in the Ameri-
A Canadian education is an opportunity
to advance your career, improve your Eng-
lish and French language skills, and enjoy
the amenities offered by Canada's world-
It is also a chance to meet new people
and make connections that can lead to life-
