USA or Canada, which one is better? USA or Canada, which one is better for immigration? Which one is better to study? USA or Canada, which one is better for living? Which one is better in healthcare?
USA and Canada are popular destinations both for students and those who are looking for a second chance in their life.
A lot of people think that these neighbors are identical but in fact, they have a lot of differences that make each one a unique country.
This one is their first obvious difference. In Canada, anyone who stays more than 3 months inside the country is eligible for free healthcare which covers everything but dental and eye. That seems European but sometimes hospitals in Canada cannot keep up with demand which results in longer waiting time than normal.
In the US, the situation is much different. There’s no nationwide health care system (Obamacare was not successful enough). Almost all individuals have to buy insurance whether themselves or their employer but if someone doesn’t have either of them, they’re officially going to get bankrupt if they ever end up in a hospital because even an ambulance call would cost between $500-1000 in the US! But if we set that part aside, medical services are as fast and convenient as they can be.
In the US, you have a choice from hot places like Florida to freezing climates like Alaska. You can find both the jungle and the desert. It’s truly diverse while all of Canada’s provinces and territories (Except southern British Columbia) are frozen for about 5 months a year.
So, if you are looking for weather choices, close this tab and choose the US!
As of 2020, an American passport is visa-free to 184 countries while Canada is visa free to 183 countries.
Their minor differences are:
1- American passport is visa-free to “Equatorial Guinea” and “Central African Republic” which Canada isn’t.
2-Canadian passport is visa-free to Uzbekistan which the US is not.
So, there would be no difference in terms of their passports.
The USA has been a popular destination for all types of immigration since the 18th century while Canada has become a hot spot for about 20 years so far but it is more diverse.
Racism could be found anywhere and these countries are no exception either!
It mostly depends on which part you choose to live in. For example, according to Plos one, the rural Northeast and South of America experience more racism compared to other parts.
The same rule goes for Canada. Less developed provinces like Manitoba are subjected to more racist acts.
The USA has more options in awesome universities while Canadian colleges and universities are more affordable.
Each year, a few hundred American students choose to study in Canada to get rid of student debt as they graduate. Canadian universities are as acceptable as the ones at home for American employers.
Do you have any experience in one of these countries? got any questions?
