Thinking of moving to Canada from the UK?
Hi,

I'm looking sell up and move myself and my family to Canada from the UK.

I know there are lots of Canadian flyers out there. Can people give me their points of view of what Canada is like to live in as a country.

If you have any controversial views, please PM me and not make them public, I'm not looking to start a RR war!

Many thanks.

There are a lot of gays in Canada. Other than that the hockey hall of fame is a good place to go.

Don't listen to the previous comments they are just jealous of our country.

We are quite diverse, also depends on where you plan to settle down.
best is to Google the city you plan to visit and stay.
all the major cities have their own web page, also try the news stations and papers for info

to see the city up close try

There are a tremendous number of places to live, each having their own diversities and colour.

Well, this being your first post, welcome to runryder, there is funny guys and serious guys on this site, some times too serious

Soon plenty of colour in my neighborhood, I'm refering to the leaves. It's almost fall, nice time of the year here. Then you'll have your cold beer by the front door at Juggernaut house. I wish I had one of those at my house.

Good luck with your decision

Well to be serious I did take a fishing trip up to Lake of the woods years ago and it was just beautiful. I would love to go back one of these days.

Go west young man!

Get far enough past the east coast so you loose the humidity and the wet winters. Calgary was a great place when I was there.
Always check the economies of the areas to see the future trends.

Gays? Must be in the east? lol

This summer we had 6 days of rain, and a ton of sun! Winters can be off an on for sure, some cold, some mild, either way here in the winter we still have blue sky and sun. Clean air, blue sky, mountains and a shintoload more room then the UK that's for sure, in fact I think you will be overwhelmed by the size of this country once you travel it abit..

As mentioned do your reearch as with the economy the way it is, certain provinces, cities are better off then others at this moment. However we in Canada are officially out of the recession, things are getting notiably better while impacted for sure we're doing pretty good due to strict banking that's been in place forever. Personally having travelled places, I can say I love the heat in some of the USA states, and other countries for sure, but overall I would not give up Canada as for a balanced secure lifestyle for a family it is excellent imho.

Don't listen to my Yankee doodle friends hehehe, their just jealous that our beer is to powerfull for them and that we're the one's on top. Oh yea man, and do the West side.

Thanks guys for all your help (some very funny ). It is hard to find out stuff from here, like the economies of areas etc. Could somebody give me some idea of where we should look at to live and places best left alone.

Put simply, I'm looking for a nice place to live, where my kids have a future when they leave school, there are jobs to go to that earn enough to live OK, the people are friendly and the weather is not too extreme.

We have started to send out papers here in the UK, but we've only just started. We still have a VERY long way to go.

Many thanks again, you help is most appreciated.

Do not know much about you or your desires.
we have a diverse culture along with weather
As for weather conditions check this out
http://www.theweathernetwork.com/

typical, the west cost tends to me moderate weather wise, compared to the rest of Canada, the centre provinces have a wide temp change.
Toronto (being the largest city in Canada )is a bit milder, but we have great summers and not so cold winters compared to the others.
the East cost tends to receive more weather.

You have to do some research.
My previous photo, is true, but way up north, or east cost, it's extremely rare but does happen.

What we actually are:



This is only a tiny sample
Google Canadian tourism
to get a better idea
Good Luck

as close as I was to Canada growing up, I never went. Always wanted to. I'd love to check it out. I love the outdoors with a little stream fishing, little hiking, etc. God I'd miss the NFL and college football though!!!
