Life in Canada
Canada enjoys a high standard of living, excellent public infrastructure, a highly educated and skilled labour force, and a world-class educational system.
Canada is known for its tolerance, respect of human rights, and social justice. A respect for human rights and personal freedom is deeply held and both are constitutionally mandated in Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms. These laws say that no one can be discriminated against because of their race / colour, country of origin, ethnic heritage, gender, age, mental or physical disabilities.
Canadians are very hospitable, welcoming people. With a rich history of immigration, Canada is a multicultural society. In fact, most people in Canada come from immigrant backgrounds; with the exception of our aboriginal peoples - we are all immigrants to this place. The majority of Canadians are very tolerant and follow a "live and let live" philosophy.
Canadians believe strongly in equality. While it is important to show respect to adults, everyone is expected to work together and within the Canadian school system no one person is more important than another.
Surrounded by natural beauty, Canadians tend to be environmentally conscious and believe in a healthy lifestyle that balances work and play.
