Re: Is Canada A Good Place To Live? (thinking of moving there)
Pffft Ottawa is 'artsy' enough, imo. :P

I love Canada, and I love how it doesn't demand nationalistic fervor to prove devotion to it (*AHEM* USA *AHEM*). The Americans on my floor on campus (Carleton University in Ottawa) like it a lot here.

Essentially:
Leftys - West Coast/Vancouver
Rightys - Alberta and central provinces
Moderates (quite left in general concencus, but a lot of right people as well) - Ontario
Frenchies (lol, but really, it's nice there as well) - Quebec

And the eastern provinces I can't say, except to agree with the others here.

Parliament is fun to visit and take in the architectural symbolism (if you are an Alex Jones fun...ughhh) and regular peaceful protests and protected dignitaries.

Re: Is Canada A Good Place To Live? (thinking of moving there)
I lived in Owen Sound, Ontario for a year and went to school there for over 4 years, and I have to say that the area is a GREAT place to have a great summer in, but to live there.... um... no - too small for me. That may be because I prefer clean urban areas though (making Ottawa, certain areas of Toronto, and some of Vancouver the best places for me).

Was born in Hamilton, Ontario, and I hate the place, too much smog and industry. Even in a mall it smelled of pollution.

Lived in Walkerton for a couple years, some may recall the Walkerton E-Coli incident where some people died from the drinking water. I drank the water, my uncle got sick, my best friend's family got sick... I was fine though.

Lived in a small town called Chesley for my first few years of my life... too hick for my tastes lol

Re: Is Canada A Good Place To Live? (thinking of moving there)
I learned a lot about the immigration laws reading the forums at [link to www.britishexpats.com] They have 2 forums for Canada, one for living and moving to Canada, one for the immigration legal process. There are some legal experts who post on the immigration forum.

You can read at the government web site too and learn the different categories for immigration, skilled worker is probably the main one you would be looking at unless you are marrying a Canadian or have a big business or lots of bucks to invest in a Canadian business.

Skilled worker has a point system which you have to meet to qualify for admission. It is based on your education, work experience, language ability, and age, also whether you have supporting relatives accompanying you or in Canada. I no longer qualify under Skilled Worker because I am older than 45. You lose ten points when you turn 45.

Besides meeting the points requirements ( I barely qualified as it was, and I have two college degrees and loads of work experience, native English speaker too), you also have to show that you have $10,000 Canadian available to you at all times during the application process which can take 2 or 3 years.

You have to show the ten thousand in a bank balance when you apply, they can ask for proof at any time during the application, and you have to show that it is available to you when you "land" or arrive in Canada to claim your PR permanent resident status.

They do a stringent background check with the FBI and the local police for every place you have ever lived. Plus you have to pass a medical examination as well, and you have to pay for that yourself.

The application fee is several hundred dollars and then there is a landing fee as well, I think the total fees are around 900-1100 dollars. Haven't looked at this stuff for a while.

The easiest way is to marry a Canadian. Even that is pretty complex.

Have you ever looked into any of this or did you think you could just move there?

A lot of your professional qualifications won't transfer either if you have certifications or things like that for what you do for a living, you would probably have to start all over again from scratch.

 Quoting: mercury2


So true. It is incredibly difficult to get a Canadian Citizenship if you were not born in Canada.

It would be at least a couple years if you qualify.

It used to be easier, but Canada is a country all people around the world want to immigrate to.
See ya.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 549544



Stop being a pathetic jackass... the person who posted "too cold" could be from southern California or Florida, where the temp rarely gets below 40 degrees F. The freezing winters would be a shock to anyone from that area, therefore, "too cold". I should know, I moved from So Cal to New England several years ago and thought it was too damn cold.

Doesn't mean we are dumb, it means we don't like the damn cold winters.

Re: Is Canada A Good Place To Live? (thinking of moving there)
about crime...

Canadian cities have the highest crime rates in North America, excluding Mexico. (There are only 2 larger cities in North America with crime rates higher than any large Canadian city, per capita)

In fact, you're 2x more likley to be a victim of violent crime living in B.C. than you are in NYC. (And 4x more likely in Vancouver, a supposed 'safest' place to live)

Drug-based crimes are steadily on the increase. (Open drug use is also quite common in B.C., so be prepared)

And medical help is free.. But heaven forbid you're not "in the system". I recently paid $100 for a 5-minute "consultation" (general physical) with a doctor who did absolutely nothing other than say I looked healthy (again, after performing only a blood pressure test). Then he sent me over for a blood test. I haven't even been able to contact the doctor's office in the past 2 weeks for the results. Canadians often leave Canada for medical treatment because (often urgent) doctor's appointments can take months.

And don't forget the bad weather. Snow, rain, more often than not. It's depressing. No wonder drug use is so high.

Tons of hypocritical 'environmentalists' here, as well.

Canada is no more clean than the streets in the US are paved with gold.

Do your research before you come.

I need to know everyday stuff like how to get a driver's license.. what to expect when apartment hunting, etc... everyday stuff. Thinking of the Vancouver or Toronto area.
 Quoting: Hillcrest


Canada is part of the NWO so your American license will just transfer over from America... For the most part it's just a matter of handing in your old American license at the DMV and you'll get a provincial one.

Toronto HAD a good transit system in the 1970's. The problem is the city has grown significantly since then, but they never did add new subway stations.

While Canadian banks went south to make money (Toronto Dominion went nuts buying American banks/institutes)

However there were no subprime nonsense liar loans and other things in Canada, so there hasn't been nearly as much of as a real estate collapse...

However most things made in Canada go to America... Just as America buys most of it's junk from Canada (or it did up until the mid 2000's for all I remember... China may have surpassed Canada I dont know). Anyways so Canada will be in dire straits too.

How are you 'moving' to Canada? refugees get a free pass, but for other people I hear it's a major PITA to get there.

Also as a tip, the border people in Canada would make the homeland security people in the USA blush. They are the worst, and don't hesitate for a second to open peoples mail/possessions etc... They regularly search peoples mail in Canada..

As I always say the government doesn't represent the people.. Go figure.
