Set within a region of unmatched natural beauty, Sudbury is a friendly and lively community that the Canadian Council on Learning ranks as one of the most welcoming in the country. With a population of 160,000, it is a culturally diverse community that includes many First Nations peoples, the third-largest francophone population in Canada outside of Quebec, and people of Italian, Finnish, Polish, Chinese, Ukrainian, and Croatian heritage.
Sudbury offers a superb quality of life. In addition to brand new teaching hospital facilities and several school systems, it is in close proximity to woodlands and lakes, plentiful urban and cultural amenities, accessible outdoor recreation, and an exceptionally friendly atmosphere. It has a small-town flavour with a big-city appeal, making it a great city in which to live, work, study and to visit.
