Meet Australia’s cooler cousin and study in Canada!

When describing typical attributes of Canadians, it is not uncommon to hear an Australian liken our own culture with that of Canadians – easy-going, friendly, a similar sense of humour, and a love for sport and the great outdoors. But how on earth do they put up with the cold?!

Did you know that Canada’s lowest recorded temperature was -63 C? It’s hard to imagine! But the cold isn’t an excuse to stay indoors; Canadians excel at winter sports like snowboarding, skiing and, of course, ice-hockey!

Like Australians, Canadians enjoy a large amount of personal space, with an average of only three people per square kilometer (Australia has two). Canada is divided into two parts – English speaking and French speaking (Quebec). Canada is also home to many famous festivals such as the Montreal Jazz Festival, Montreal Comedy Festival, and the Toronto Film Festival.

With so much to do if you decide to study in Canada you’ll be sure to find something for you!

Did we mention the food? You can also look forward to tasting legitimate Canadian maple syrup and their world-famous ‘poutine’.  Poutine is hot chips, gravy and cheese-curds. Sounds average – TASTES AMAZING!

So if you’re keen for a taste of the Canadian cuisine why not study abroad in Canada?
