The Canuck Way of Life
The people up there are just so much . . . nicer.
Maybe it’s because I live in the fast-paced, work-driven northeast of the US. Or maybe there’s just something about the Canadian way of life that’s very refreshing.
I’m sure they still hustle and bustle up there and long hours at work are long hours at work. But have you ever noticed how clean Canada is? How you can literally eat off the trolley cars or walk down a sparkling clean street?
I’m green with envy.
Canada fever hits me all the time. And if I were an upper middle class (UMC) parent, I would seriously consider sending my kids to college in Canada. Why? Check out this article: Oh Canada! Cheaper Colleges in Canada.
And giving birth is an option too. Check out: Give Birth in Canada. You’ll be surprised how much Americans overpay for top private university education.
What else are the advantages to sending your kid away to a Canadian college? A nicer persona upon returning, a greater respect for the environment, a love of social healthcare. Will they ever be normal again?
Looking at life through Canadian rose-colored glasses is relaxing, beautiful and produces an overall sense of, yes, this type of living really does exist!
And for UMC parents?
You save a ton of money, still have an intact pension and 401K and you get a trip to a gorgeous Canadian province at least once or twice a year. Now doesn’t that sound nice?
A few years ago, I knew a young woman who was half-Canadian. Her father sent her to McGill University for under 10,000 USD a year . . . and that included everything from the purchase of a new car back and forth to her home in Massachusetts and renting a one bedroom apartment in exquisite Montreal.
So when searching for colleges, don’t count out Canadian universities. They cost so much less, but many times offer so much more.
