    About Canada

    Canada is considered the world's second-largest country by total area (9,98 square million), with ten provinces and three territories that extend from the Pacific to the Antarctic Ocean.

    The land of free healthcare and extremely friendly inhabitants, Canada is an attractive destination for expats looking to enjoy its reputation for being safe and providing an excellent quality of life. This is reflected in its consistent ranking on the Mercer Quality of Living Survey, with the bustling city of Vancouver often placing third. Canada has two official languages - English and French - and offers two distinct cultures which reflect these languages. Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal offer a large international community and is often the destination of choice for expatriates looking to settle in Canada.
