5 Reasons Your Kids Will Love Ontario

Posted by on Sep 11 | 2017

Ontario is one of the greatest places in Canada for children. In fact, not only is it consistently rated one of the best provinces to raise children, but it’s also consistently rated as one of the best places to live in all of Canada. Ontario residents enjoy a high quality of life.

Benefits Of Ontario For Kids

Ontario is a beautiful province. It has a strong economy and it’s safe. It’s home to rich, vibrant cities that are full of opportunity – especially for children. It’s also culturally diverse. Toronto, for example, is the most multicultural city in the world. Half of the people that live in Toronto were born outside of Canada.

Even more, Ontario is home to some the best schools in all of North America. It’s also one of the most family-friendly provinces in Ontario, but this doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of why 40% of Canadians choose to live in this beautiful province.

Ultimately, parents can feel confident transitioning their children to the province of Ontario – you are setting your child up for a lot of success in doing so. Your children will love Ontario just as much as you do and here are just a few reasons why.

  1. Ontario Makes Parents Happy (When Parents Are Happy, Children Are Happy)
    Many places in Ontario are consistently rated as some of the best places to raise children. In 2016, Oakville was rated the second best place to raise children in Canada due to low monthly daycare costs and being in close proximity to many other families. Burlington placed third for the same reasons. In short, Ontario offers:

    • Low Day Care Costs
    • Better Educational Opportunities
      Ontario is currently the only province to offer full-day kindergarten, which has many benefits when it comes to child development. A study conducted by the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto has shown that children enrolled in the program are significantly ahead of their peers in terms of reading, writing and number knowledge, as well as in terms of self-regulation (for example, they can focus for longer periods of time). Ontario is also home to some of the top universities in all of North America (and the world in general), including the University of Toronto, McMaster and the University of Waterloo.

    • Lower Health Care Costs
      Under the Ontario Health Insurance Plan, Ontario residents gain access to universal health care services. This covers a range of health services, from health examinations to medical testing to emergency care.

  2. So Many Children’s Attractions
    Ontario is full of kid-friendly activities. Ontario offers zoos, amusement parks, science parks, water parks, animal parks, farms, pioneer villages and much, much more. This doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. Some popular examples are the Ontario Science Center, Ripley’s Aquarium and Canada’s Wonderland, to name just a few. There are also many holiday-related activities just for kids as well, allowing them to celebrate the magic of each season. On top of this, there are so many getaway options that you can take your child to during the winter and summer holidays. The list goes on.

  3. A Rich Diversity of Children’s Programs
    On top of an extensive list of children’s attractions, Ontario offers an equally extensive list of programs for children in cities and towns across Ontario. A lot of this has to do with the fact that Ontario is home to some of the most rich and vibrant cities in Canada, such as Toronto and Ottawa. For example, public libraries offer many different children’s programs throughout the year. Whether your child is interested in music, soccer, or gymnastics, Ontario caters to just about any interest your child has, offering enriching experiences for children outside of school.

  4. Home to Over a Hundred Provincial and National Parks
    Ontario is home to over a hundred provincial and national parks. Children can learn a lot of adventure skills, like canoeing, camping and swimming, to name just a few, when they live in Ontario.

  5. They Get to Experience All Seasons
    Not every province in Canada gets to enjoy a lot of snow and all of the fun it brings in the winter months, from tobogganing to skiing to snowboarding to snowmobiling and much, much more.
