Canada is one of the world’s most welcoming destinations for international students

Canada is one of the world’s most welcoming destinations for international students.

Last year, Canada welcomed over 1,040,985 [1] new international students, an all-time record.

Once in Canada, international students quickly discover they are in a cultural mosaic with people from all corners of the globe. This diversity allows them to stay connected with their cultural identities while integrating into Canadian society.

Fortunately, international students from all backgrounds will have plenty of opportunity to assemble into Canada and enjoy all the country has to offer - from entertainment, food, attractions and more.

Taking advantage of cultural events and Canadian moments is easy with Virgin Plus' Member Benefits program which is free when you sign up on an eligible plan with Virgin Plus!
