In addition to this,Canada is composed of people from all over the world, and as a consequence various cultures harmoniously coexist within the country under the government’s multicultural policy. For many centuries, Canadians have learned to appreciate each other’s culture and unique history, which resulted in the formation of ‘mosaic culture’ that has flourished among Canadians. Therefore, students will be able to experience diverse cultural aspects and meet people from all over the world, thereby establishing better understanding of globalism. Furthermore, Canada’s educational system has been internationally recognized for its tradition and excellence. Canada is the top country among all the OECD member countries that invest the most amount of GDP in pursuing better education, and all the public schools are under the supervision of the provincial government, which guarantees that every public school meets the adequate level of educational standard. Most major universities are also public, meaning that even universities are under the super- vision of the provincial government to ensure the quality of education.
