With the lowest unemployment rate, it is a land of opportunities. With universities located both in urban and rural settings, in almost all the regions of the country, education is easily accessible. Considering the high quality of academic standards, degrees, certificates or diplomas from Canadian universities are globally recognized and considered equivalent to those obtained from The United States or any other Commonwealth nation.
