Some of the famous Canadian cities for students are:
Montreal is the second-largest city in Canada. Widely cited as the cultural capital of Canada, Montreal boasts a unique combination of European sophistication and American pizzazz, which gives it a buzz few other places can match. As a student, you’ll certainly never be at a loss for things to do, with plenty of theater, music, dance and visual arts to explore, including the annual Just for Laughs comedy festival, the world’s largest of its kind. And don’t miss the Montreal Fireworks Festival, frequently hailed as the best and largest fireworks festival in the world.
Toronto is known for being one of the world’s most multicultural cities, with around half of its 2.6 million-strong population hailing from outside of the city. It is an exciting and diverse place to live, with its diverse culture and cuisine. Toronto is Canada’s leading financial centre – while also being known as a world leading hub for the entertainment, media and creative industries. Toronto’s collection of museums and galleries is impressive, ranging from the large Royal Ontario Museum and the Art Gallery of Ontario to the much smaller Gardiner Museum of ceramic art, Gallery of Inuit Art or the Bata Shoe Museum. There is also a vibrant club scene and more than enough cafés and restaurants to keep foodies and coffee-lovers satisfied.
A relatively young city on Canada’s west coast, Vancouver is the perfect destination for those who want to combine city living with easy access to the great outdoors. And by great, we really mean great – the landscape surrounding Vancouver is truly spectacular, ranging from lush green forests and stunning lakes, to the rugged magnificence of the Canadian Rockies (especially popular with skiers and snowboarders). Canada’s third-largest metropolis, Vancouver consistently features in lists of the world’s most liveable cities – and has become one of Canada’s best-known and most-visited cities. Cultural offerings include three prominent theatre companies, the Vancouver International Film Festival, and a vibrant and diverse music scene. And for those who are not keen on cold weather, Vancouver might suit you, as it’s one of the country’s warmest cities during winter.
If you like picturesque and historic cities, you can’t really do much better than Quebec City. Founded in the early 17th century, Quebec is the capital of the province with which it shares its name, and of French-speaking Canada as a whole. Its Old Town, with pretty cobbled streets surrounding the striking Château Frontenac and the only preserved city ramparts in North America, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Quebec as a whole is full of historic and architectural interest. In fact, there are 37 National Historic Sites of Canada in Quebec City and its enclaves. But of course Québec is not just a giant museum – it’s very much a living and changing city. There’s no shortage of things to do here, in terms of both nightlife and culture, and the city is especially known for its colourful Winter Carnival, lively gay scene, and intimate live music venues.
The capital of Canada, Ottawa, is a diverse and dynamic city, Ottawa is also largely multilingual, with many residents fluent in both English and French. Ottawa is home to the Rideau Canal, the oldest continuously operated canal system in North America, which is also a world heritage site. There are countless other cultural and historical spots of interest to explore, including the most visited museum in Canada, the Canadian Museum of History. The city is also home to the impressive neo-gothic parliament building ‘Centre Block’. Ottawa has a high percentage of international students, reflecting the vibrant and multi-cultural study environment on offer.
Edmonton is known for its year-round selection of festivals, earning it the nickname ‘The Festival City’. It is equally well known as the home of the West Edmonton Mall, formerly the biggest shopping mall in the world, and for being one of the most northerly major cities in the world. Don’t let this northern location put you off too much; Edmonton’s weather is relatively mild, even compared to some other more southerly Canadian cities. Its location, towards the west of Canada, also means there is no shortage of natural beauty nearby, and the city itself has plenty of attractions – including Ford Edmonton Park, Canada’s largest living history museum, the buzzing downtown Arts District, and the fashionable Old Strathcona area, where many of Edmonton’s theatres and live-performance venues are located. All this can be found among a mix of modern and historic architecture, including restored historical buildings, and a good range of restaurants, pubs and clubs.
