It can be difficult to find the correct university education to meet your needs. With so many factors to consider, location, cost, and programmes navigating it all may be a nightmare. However, knowing which Canadian cities are the most student-friendly in population and tuition expenses can be useful.

Quebec is the top province for post-secondary students, according to a recent Studee report. So, how did they deconstruct it? Studee assigned a grade to cities across Canada based on the cost of tuition, rent, and the percentage of young people and graduates who live there. They’ve even researched vegan food availability, crime statistics, typical beer prices, and accessibility to national parks.

The research was conducted to enable students from all around the country to go outside their native provinces for educational purposes. In a press release, Laura Rettie, VP of global communications at Studee, said, “Research has demonstrated that businesses prefer to hire graduates with multicultural experience since they realize it enhances their brand’s competitiveness.”

“Surprisingly, just 10% of Canadian students leave their province to attend university, putting them at risk of being left behind. We gathered information from university locations across Canada to help students feel more confident about leaving home to study further afield, hoping to make students’ decisions easier.”
