Pros - healthcare, lots of nice people, beautiful landscapes
Cons - snow can be fierce depending on where you're going, getting a work permit to live there can be tough (just like for any country)

Can't blame you, really. I can find beauty in nearly any landscape (talk to me sometime about my trip through the desert!), but yeah, Canada's got some really pretty parts. Speaking French is optional mostly, and you really don't even need to know the metric system for the most part, but both are very helpful as far as I can tell from my visits. I've considered a few jobs up there, but so far haven't taken any.

I was born & raised in Canada. But, because of work, I ended up in the US. Not that I mind; there are a lot of similarities despite the differences.

Canada is a great place to live. It's a beautiful country--I've been through most of it. But it also has its problems. Try and get a temporary job there over a summer to see if you really like it.

Yeah its nice up here and is not that different then the states in a lot of ways. Its pretty commons for Canadians and Americans to work or live in both countries.

Canada sucks. Coming from someone who has been in Canada 14 years.

A few of my American friends are in Canada for college (British Columbia). And they absolutely love it there. I don't know much about it, but if you want to go there, you should.

I've live in both. Just a general observation: people who more to Canada tend to stick close to their ethnic roots (which has their good and bad points, that's another discussion) while those to come to the US want to be "Americanized" right away.

I think often about moving to Canada or Europe. If I moved to Canada I would live in Yellow Knife or Montreal.


Talk about polar opposites. Those are very different cities. I'm curious what you find interesting about Yellow Knife?

A plus side of living in Canada:

polar bears in your backyard
igloos during the summer
Tim Hortons coffee
taking a dog sled to school

after 20 years of this...it is safe to say I live in an amazing country.

That's what I figured, hence the "Alert" joke. I figure most people, except Canadians, won't get that one. ;)
Beware the black flies. I don't miss those at all.

black flies... talking about horse flies? Northern Manitoba has tons of them during spring.

Unrelated note! this is coming from someone who has lived in alberta for 24 years, great place (if you can get past green peace hating the oil industry). Red Deer to Lethbridge, you also get Chinooks during the winter (snow outside but its warm enough for shorts) and when you have winter for a solid half of the year, its the best thing ever. Ill admit that BC is a wonderful place to visit but unless you have a set in stone trade or education, I wouldn't recommend living there, its very expensive. Montreal is also a great place to visit, same with Nova Scotia. The most stable to live in are Calgary (Alberta), Toronto or Ontario. Personal opinion, I welcome a different opinion
