While finding the best overseas education destination, one name that has been a constant for a few years now is, Canada. And the major contributing factor to it is the work opportunity it offers to students while they study. The best way to gain exposure early on. So, what are the hotspot cities that rank at the top for striking a perfect balance between opportunities for study and work alike? Here’s the list:
Montreal has been the most favorite among international students. With monthly living expenses of just under C$ 1,500, it is quite economical to study and work while saving some bucks for your future life.
McGill University, University of Montreal, Concordia University, HEC Montreal, Vanier College, Rosemont College.
Check for the vacancies in your university. The next best option is to look for customer or marketing representatives’ positions by dropping in your resume at the physical stores. International students earn anywhere between C$ 800 to 1,500 monthly while studying.
Montreal is majorly a French-speaking city and English is the second language there. So, to adjust well and find a job easier, try to learn French a bit.
At least 50% of the population of Toronto belongs to the minority, thereby making it the safest city in Canada for every non-Canadian. Besides, it houses the namesake top university of Canada and offers a higher wage rate for every hour worked.
University of Toronto, York University, Ryerson University, Trent University, OCAD University, Seneca College, Centennial College, George Brown College, Humber College.
To cover the monthly living cost of around C$ 2,500, look for clerical jobs, sales rep, waiter, driver, fitness instructor – all off-campus. And on-campus, look for administrative vacancies or service jobs at campus canteen or bookstores.
One of the costliest cities of Canada, Vancouver balances this minus by offering the plus of unlimited work opportunities to international students at a higher wage rate per hour.
University of British Columbia, University of Canada West, Simon Fraser University, Vancouver Island University, Regent College, Eton College, St. John’s College, Ashton’s College, Langara College, Columbia College.
To cover your living expenses of around C$ 2,500 to 3,000, first look for the on-campus vacancies. If that is not a possibility, scout the retail stores, restaurants, and cafes of the city to quickly grab the position before losing it; Vancouver has a highly competitive job market.
Hosting more than 50% of immigrants from Asia and the Middle East, Ottawa is considered the cosmopolitan hub of Canada. Add to it the high-quality educational institutes and world-class faculty. Not to forget the meager living cost for just around C$ 1,200 to 1,800.
University of Ottawa, Saint Paul University, Carleton University, Algonquin University, Dominican University College, Augustine College.
To fuel the vacancies in its innovative IT park aka Canada’s Silicon Valley, Ottawa reserves more than half a million work positions for its student population.
