Canada is the second-best country to live in the world after Switzerland, according to US News and World Report.
It was the top best country in 2019, and second-best again in 2018.
Consistently ranking as a top country to live in, Canada offers many attractions for those living in the country.
Here are some things to know about living in Canada.
One reason Canada is a great country to live in is its great super visa program, which allows parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens to temporarily live in the country.
If you choose to take advantage of that program, be sure to also check out super visa health insurance coverage to make sure you are covered while living in Canada.
With all the natural and wilderness opportunities Canada has to offer, you want to make sure you have proper health insurance to protect you in all occasions.
The super visa program, which allows family members to stay without having to renew their visa for up to two years, has made Canada especially attractive for modern global families.
You can check out program requirements on the official Canadian government site for details.
Also known as an education superpower, Canada especially appeals to parents or parents-to-be expecting children.
In Canada, public elementary and secondary education are free.
Tuition is also notably lower compared with other countries like the U.S.
For example, Canadian citizens seeking an undergraduate degree can expect to pay an average of about C$6,800 per year.
One interesting thing about the Canadian education system is that by global standards, teachers in Canada make more than teachers elsewhere, and thus becoming a teacher tends to be a very selective process.
Canada is often called the most educated country in the world with more than half of its residents made up of college graduates.
Unless you live in Quebec, there is no need to learn French.
While most of Quebec still speak French, the remaining part of Canada speaks English fine.
Quebec is the only province that recognizes French as its sole official language.
Not having to learn a new language makes Canada appeal to English speakers seeking a change of scenery.
This also means most street signs are in English too, unless you are in Quebec.
Canada is also hailed as one of the safest places to live, according to the Global Peace Index.
With lower crime rates, low military action and a peaceful political government, Canada is especially attractive to those with families.
Canada ranked 8th out of 142 countries in safety, according to the 2018 Global Law and Order survey of 148,000 participants around the world.
Residents in Singapore felt the highest sense of personal security, followed by those in other countries like Finland, Iceland, and Norway.
The second-largest country in the world by landmass after Russia, Canada is known as the land of lakes and known for its pristine natural beauty and landscapes.
It is also known to have a friendly immigration process with various visas available for those who are interested.
These are just some of the things that make Canada such an attractive place to live.
