Many people say that Canada is like New Zealand – only it’s much bigger, colder, and it has grizzly bears! Canada is well-known for its natural beauty, pretty cities, and friendly people. If you love snow sports, the great outdoors, and maple syrup, you’ll love studying in Canada. It’s home to about 35 million people, 1 million moose, 369,000 black bears, and a variety of other amazing wildlife.
One piece of advice I want to leave with you is that you must go into your exchange with an open mind and make the most out of every opportunity because it will be over before you even comprehend that you’ve left!
