Did you want to escape, try to escape the population?

Look out the land of the maple leaf! I'm moving your way from Australia in early December!

STOKED!!!!!

Not sure on the location yet, trying to get a job - otherwise, could be anywhere! (Montreal, Vancouver and Edmonton are currently the candidates!)

More soon :)

Wow, that's a big move! I've never been to eastern Canada, but Vancouver seemed like a great place from the little time I've been there, and I've heard it is one of the more affordable major metropolitan areas in North America to live in. Plus the Pacific Northwest is beautiful. Sure the other places are great too though!

Out of those cities, Vancouver is the most expensive, then Montreal and then Edmonton. But if you are going for scenery, Edmonton is definitely last on that list and Vancouver is the best.

Both Vancouver and Toronto seem to compete for being Canada's most expensive city, I think it is currently Toronto though.

Oh yeah, welcome to Canada!

I stand corrected about affordability! Vancouver must have been near the top of the list in something else I was looking at. :Johnathan:

Yes, Vancouver is VERY expensive but I only knew how it ranked in Canada and not all of North America, so I couldn't really speak to anything else.

montreal is my fav city and it is cheap as hell to live there...and it actually has some culture ;)

vancouver is straight up beautiful but is one of the most expensive places to live ON THE PLANET - even more expensive than toronto, you gotta pay for those views ya know?

edmonton? i dunno only been there for a couple days i think? - it was nice enough and they have a big mall, sorry thats all i know about that place lol

I'm pretty fond of Winnipeg myself, but I've only ever been to two major canadian cities.

It’s making it a better place.” ~ Raine Maida

You met OLP here. It should be the clear winner. Plus Edmonton has the largest recreational area in North America - The River Valley. Plus the hockey fans here are less annoying than the whiney bitches in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

HAHA well thats all very good advice.... At this stage, I'm starting in Montreal and then i'll make my way slowly across the country and do intend on spending sometime in Edmonton :)

I'm looking forward to getting into the hockey!

Edmonton does have the best hockey team! Guess that should be said! However - so glad the Jets are back!

The shitty thing is I'm closer to the Jets but would be more likely to be found in Edmonton at a game.

Well, its a beautiful place and I can see why a lot of people choose to move here.
Not having much luck on the job front, but thats ok as well! Thinking I might head to Niagara Falls in the new year as there seem to be a number of jobs going at the Parks.

Thanks for asking Carson! How you are you going?
