London, known as the Forest City, has everything one looks for in a city – culture, entertainment, shopping, sports - but with the added plus of a friendly ambience that is reminiscent of smaller communities. In recent years, London has increased its international presence by being the host venue for prestigious national and international sport and entertainment events.

London also boasts many natural areas throughout the city that are open year-round, including the Thames Valley Parkway, a pedestrian and bike path that runs over 40 kilometres, offering scenic river crossings and is linked to over 150 kilometres of additional pathways connecting all corners of London. 

London is a top Canadian centre for medical research and education, and has in recent years been voted among the best cities in which to live in Canada. Located mid-way between Windsor and Toronto, London offers all the recreational and educational facilities that international teens seek.
