SAFE ENVIRONMENT

A safe environment is essential for peaceful and productive study. Canada offers a safe environment for all students: the country's overall crime rate is low, and it is a politically stable country, valuing peace, order and fair rule of law. In Canada, the rights of all citizens are respected regardless of cultural, ethnic or religious background. Few natural disasters trouble the country, and in 2008 Canada was 11th out of the 140 countries ranked on the Global Peace Index.
