CANADA - College vs. University for Immigrants

(excerpt from my new book - From Foreign Student to Canadian Citizen - And Everything in Between)

College vs. University

On the topic of choosing a Canadian College vs. a University, it somewhat boils down to your overall intentions, goals, and priorities. Is your top priority to become a permanent resident in Canada, and therefore, going to school is a means to that end? Or is your top priority to pursue international studies, specialized studies not available in your country, or further your education in an international/”first world” setting? I know of people who have come to Canada, studied, returned home, and pursued Permanent residency after a year or two, or never.
