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

Don't worry, you're not alone here! I've been tempted to move to Canada even before becoming an independent working adult.I live in Australia here, and don't get me wrong, I love it here. But I've been under the impression that Canada is just a colder Australia, and my blood enjoys the cold more than the hot. So this is definitely a thought to be considered when the time comes!

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

It's a welfare state where a vast number of people speak English. A better question would be, how could you not want to live there?

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.
