Why Canadian education should be chosen?

Since 1970, Canadian education has officially become the bilingual education (English and French). Canada is the leader in education when invested 8% of total GDP in education and maintenance of teaching quality by using well-qualified teachers and modern equipment for classrooms. Hence, Canadian pupils in the last 10 years have been successful in Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) triennially.  

In 2009, PISA arranged that Canada ranks 3 in OECD (Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) and ranks 5 in Maths and Science. In English speaking countries, Canada ranks 1 in Reading skill and Maths, ranks 2 in Science.

From 2012, Canada, compared to other English speaking countries, kept high rank in these three areas.
