Feels like home. Very calm and peaceful
Tips: Super chill and easygoing. Do not get academic misconduct. Satisfied with the course. Not very technical but it's good. Faculty members are understanding and internship placements are good as well. Post-degree job prospects are good too. Tons of immigration options.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): A lot of immigrantion programs in Atlantic canada. Close to 100% success rates. Does not take a long time to get settled here. Great country, peace of mind and quality lifestyle are witnessed. A bit expensive and harsh on the climate but it is manageable provided you have a decent job and can get acclimatized to the cold weather.
Dislikes (Indian Food): Less Indian restaurants but there are plenty of grocery items available. Lots of Indian snacks, frozen dinners etc. are available and giants like Walmart, Atlantic super store, Sobeys etc. No need to pack up a lot of Indian food while coming here. Learn to cook basic food. May be problematic for vegetarians. Food is expensive so budget according.
