Canada. What comes to find when you hear the word Canada? You might think about a handsome mugshot of Justin Trudeau? Or maybe a colony of beavers? Oh wait, how about a colony of beavers swimming in a lake of maple syrup?!! Or maybe you are thinking about Justin Bieber doing.. well, Justin Bieber-ly things!
Whatever it may be, UniAcco promises that very soon, the only thing that will come to your mind when you hear the word Canada will be – UNIACCO!
Why, you ask? We’ll tell you why!
UniAcco has now opened up in Canada!
Students headed to Canada can now expect to find the same high-quality, fully-furnished student accommodations associated with UniAcco properties! Choose from over 25,000 beds across all the major cities in Canada.
We assure the same attention to detail, the same premium service and the same commitment to finding you your ideal accommodation near your university.
Why Did We Choose Canada?
After assisting more than 30,000 students with their accommodation needs in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Australia, we felt that now would be the perfect time to open up in Canada.
In 2019, Canada saw its foreign student enrollment swell up to 4,35,415 students as compared to 3,70,710 in the previous year. This means that there was a mammoth +17.45% increase in the number of incoming students, the most being from India, China, France. With so many international students headed abroad to study, we just knew that our spacious and amenities laden properties would serve Canadian students well.
Here are some other reasons why we chose to open in Canada!
World-Class Education In Canada
The high quality of education in most Canadian universities and colleges is the reason why Canada is one of the top higher education destinations in the world. After the USA, the UK and China, Canada welcomes the highest number of international students every year. The Canadian educational system encourages cross-disciplinary studies and the development of transferable skills like critical thinking, teamwork and communications and uses cutting-edge technology and digital media.
Sayantan Biswas, Co-Founder of UniAcco explains, “We want to have our presence in all the top student countries and Canada is one of the most popular higher education destinations, especially for Indian students. The student accommodation network in Canada is very developed and robust, which is why we wanted to have our presence here, right before the main student intake”
Canada’s Bludgeoning Teach Wave
Being a prop-tech company, UniAcco employs a lot of technology in order to provide students with the most hassle-free service. Take for instance, our ‘Compare’ feature, a first on any student accommodation platform. Compare allows students to systematically compare up to four student accommodation options based on 80+ unique parameters like “room types”, “amenities”, “location”, “distance from university”, “discounts”, etc.
Just like us, Canada loves technology. Canada is renowned for its technological advancements in industries like telecommunications, digital media, video game, biotech and aeronautical engineering. More importantly, Canada was the first country to link its schools and libraries to the Internet through its innovative SchoolNet program. It is therefore not surprising that nearly 90% of Canadian households are connected to the Internet.
Some more facts that led us to opening up in Canada is that Canadians rank 2nd in the world for the average number of hours spent online per user (41.3 hours per month). Among G8 countries, Canada takes 2nd place in terms of Internet penetration rates.
The Excellent Quality Of Life In Canada
As per the latest QS World University Rankings, three Canadian cities – Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver, made the list of the top 50 student cities in the world. These rankings were based on several criteria, including affordability, the diversity of the student population and employers’ perception of graduates on the job market. Canada is one of the most hospitable countries in the world, with a cost of living that is lower than in other countries like the US, France and the UK. This country also offers safety, stability and respect for the rights of individuals and communities.
