I want to live in Canada someday. I love the multicultural environment, its natural beauty, the laid back and friendly people.
Either Canada or New Zealand

I'd rather if you live in Canada live near British Columbia ,Toronto or Manitoba(Winnipeg specifically). The rest are great, but not great for living if you aren't a local , and is better off being a sight seeing vaycay.

I love Toronto, it is the heart of where an array of cultures is welcomed--not shunned, the city that never sleeps and my home. Plus the Tiff awards and Nuit Blanche is something to lookout for!
However, I did have a liking towards BC. It's near Japan , Korea and China where it's cheaper to fly over since BC is right across, while in Toronto it's at least 2grand .

i lived about 20mins from the canadian border over by B.C. for 7yrs. it's a pretty common thing for people to go hang out up there or work there, but still live on the U.S. side of the border. i love vancouver! it's beautiful & the people are nice quite a bit of cultural diversity as well. i keep meaning to go to Tim Horton's, but i haven't yet. next time for sure--i've got a bunch of canadian change from all the times i've been, & i need to get rid of it!

Hey, Canada is a pretty good place to live. I lived in Vancouver for 6 years and if you don't mind the rain in the winter, it's a nice place in general

I don't know much about Canada, and I have only been there once.
From my experience the traffic there is much scarier than in the states
Other than that, I'd very much like to live there though the winter might be too brutal for me
If I do move there I'll choose Vancouver xD

You have to be careful where you are in canada because some areas can be really old fashioned and judging on the fact that you are here i would move to areas such as British Colombia (where I live... Beautiful BTW) quebec and ontario.


P.S if you ever moved to B.C i recommend living in Vancouver because the work there is more modern. i live in kelowna and everyone is old no one likes anime, and the pro-tech companies in kelowna are the ones that you end up commiting suicide in .... so ya Vancouver

Of course you'll like Canada better if you're American. No offense (ok, maybe a little), but America is literally c/ap.

If you can handle the snow and the French, Québec is amazing. I live by Ottawa (capital of Canada in Ontario) and most people live an easygoing life.
(A lot of government employees so it does help too).
I live in Québec but right beside Ontario.

I definitely want to visit Canada, it's on top of my list of "places I want to live" lol.
But, I was wondering... haven't you notice that most people want to live in a different country than they were born in? I mean, a lot of japanese youths want to go to the West, and que want to go to the east (or a least a nice place to live, like Canada). This trend picked my curiosity... maybe I could do some research.

The healthcare system in Canada is most definitely a benefit but the standard of living can be very expensive. I live in Vancouver and it is one of the most expensive cities in all of North America.

Great scenery but there isn't really much to do if you're not into the whole outdoorsy stuff.

One thing I don't like about living in Canada is the shopping (first world problem, I know). Not as much variety as compared to the US, for instance, and if there are sales, it's often not a significant reduction.

Speaking of shopping, all cellphone/tv/internet plans in Canada are overpriced for what they feature.

Canada is beautiful, and the people I met were good people. But I have trouble considering any place but America as my home. For one thing, they have some goofy and overly restrictive laws concerning some things that personally, I don't buy into. But there's certainly a lot worse places to live.

If you live in Canada, you're going to miss out on a lot of free legal options for entertainment, especially anime.
I mean you guys have Hulu, better Netflix, and a lot of better things on freeview TV. There's no freeview anime except for some signals that we import from the USA, and the ones on basic cable are commercial cash cows for kids.

The upside is that you won't get into trouble for illegally streaming stuff like you would in the USA since the RCMP tolerates it for personal use.

In any case, wait until our prime minister Stephen Harper leaves office or loses an election. He's like quite right wing, sort of a mix of Bush and Reagan. Prime ministers have more say over what happens in Canada than presidents have over the USA. Not to mention, his party currently has a majority government, so we're pretty much a right-wing aristocracy for the time being. But if you love Republican-style politics, come in.
