    Hi! I m planning to move to Canada and I m very confused about which place to list on my application. For visa reasons, I can t select anywhere in Quebec, but I need to move to a city with as much of the following as possible: - Access to SkyTrain + great public transport in general (I can t drive). - Reasonable apartment rental fees (reasonable for a city) + low/average personal income tax rate) - An Indian embassy or consulate. - Weather that s not extreme in winter or summer. - Bonus: access to services, great environment (scenery, culture, diversity), things to do (museums, theater, nightlife, shopping, etc.), French-speaking I m wondering if any of the following is good considering the above: Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver Thanks in advance for any insight!

  • Visiting Vancouver and Victoria! 10 points!!?

    Best answer: Sure, you can get a fair bit of touring done in that time but I'd take a day off of Victoria and add it to Vancouver, a much larger metropolis with more to do.

    Best answer: Sure, you can get a fair bit of touring done in that time but I'd take a day off of Victoria and add it to Vancouver, a much larger metropolis with more to do.

    Vancouver is the third largest city in Canada and as a major Pacific ocean port, has a lot of influence from East Asia. I would check out as much ethnic food as you can handle - consult The Georgia Straight (straight.com if online) and Yelp for restaurant recommendations.

    Typical touristy places in Vancouver: Stanley Park, Granville Island market, Capilano suspension bridge. Check out the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Museum of Anthropology at the University of BC, local theater, improv comedy, burlesque, and the downtown entertainment district to hop discos.

    Victoria is quite sedate but beautiful in early summer, with a lot of gardens and the legislature building which is super Victorian era and a very walkable downtown - don't miss Munro Books

    Nanaimo night life is...well, in my opinion it is all seedy bars, but the area is pleasant to drive around and while you're there, take a cruise to go check out the ocean life.

  • Do Canadians get angry when they are cold?

    Best answer: No idea what you are talking about. I've lived in Canada for 49 years now. The cold does not generally make people angry. It makes them cold. It's a fact of living in Canada from November to about March.

    Someone may get frustrated or depressed when the cold/wet/slushy/grey time of year drags on for a longer period than normal. But getting angry about it makes no sense. Who are you going to blame? Father Time? Mother Nature? Some poor meteorologist on CBC or CTV?

    Jogging on cold days is actually more logical than when it is warm. Canadians jog or run to stay warm on those days. I used to jog in place at the bus stop to stay warm while I waited.

    Something tells me your "Canadian friend" may be using the cold as an excuse not to have to go exercise.

    I moved to Montreal in September and I will admit that I am incredibly bored. I will also admit that socializing has always been hard for me and I've in fact never had friends. I'm probably not very likable and also have social anxiety, so I'm not trying to complain about the city itself or anything. I work and then usually spend my weekend roaming downtown and just doing nothing. Montreal has a reputation as being an incredibly fun and outgoing place, but I don't drink or go to clubs, so I don't plan on seeing that part of the city. I've attended some meetup groups, but have always been too nervous to talk to people or found that most people who go are in their 50s or 60s, so there's too much of an age gap to connect. So that's it...I'm terrified about going out to meet people and I'm also too scared to spend money on events to meet others. For example, if an event costs $25 to attend, I may pay it, but then show up and be too nervous to talk to anyone, or simply go and talk to others, but not be able to connect with them, and so then I have wasted $25. I'm sorry for such a negative post, but part of me is ridiculously bored with spending all my time either alone or just roaming downtown and that's it. I know no one is going to come pounding on my door and suddenly befriend me, but it's this anxiety about meeting others and my fear of spending money on events jusy to make friends which os problematic here. So how does one make friends in Montreal (or elsewhere)?

    So I’m planning on going to Canada in June with my friend and we cannot agree on where to go... and since we’ve never been it makes it hard to know things. We live in New York so we want to go some place closeish to the boarder. I wanted to go to Toronto because it has a good night life along side things to do in the day time. She says it’s too much of a city for her.. she want to go to Quebec/Montreal, I’m not opposed to going but she knows no french and I only know a little bit. I understand lots of people speak french and English there, but I’m nervous about road signs, grocery stores and restaurant menus... can anyone give me a little insight on either Quebec or Montreal’s stuff they’ve got going on, or tell me a good place to visit that will be easy for us to monuver... specially if it’s got a decent night life cause I’m really interested and going out.. thank you!

    Best answer: It's fairly posh, middle to upper middle class for the most part. Less hectic than what part of Toronto? It's a little less crowded than most of downtown Toronto, with larger lots for the houses but there are also areas with a lot of apartments. It's a good place to live. I lived and worked there for over 15 years and nearby for another 10. If I had to live in the Vancouver area again, North Van would be top of my list. If you have to drive into Vancouver at rush hour, that can take some time. If you take the Seabus or travel at odd hours, not so bad. But aside from work or maybe concerts or sports events, there isn't much you really need to leave for. Everything is there. It's close to excellent hiking and you can take a city bus to the Grouse Mountain tram if you want to ski. Many parts have excellent views, seeing as how much of North Van is on a mountain.

    Best answer: If you don't want to drive through a big big city like Vancouver BC, you need to get on a ferry that goes straight to Victoria. I prefer the ferries every time.

    This time of year (winter) you can visit the gardens like Butchart but they are mostly water features and structural, not blooming of course. I believe they're open all year long. It's been a while since I've been but it was during our spring break in March--very cold but still fun.

    There was a lovely butterfly garden you could tour and that was indoors (very much like the one at Pac Sci Center in Seattle).

    There is the Empress Hotel, which serves high tea--beautiful building too.

    There is Craigdarroch Castle -- really cool.

    The Royal British Columbia Museum which is a history and natural history museum--really extensive. Lots of cool stuff for kids and adults.

    A ferry to Nanaimo is also there and that can be a fun side trip.

    If you aren't traveling with babies, toddlers and young children--and are somebody who is active and organized but wants to actually take time to see everything (not race), you could do at least the Victoria stuff I've listed above (minus Nanaimo) in about 3 days.

    I would prefer the ferry from Seattle rather than driving through Vancouver BC. It adds an adventure.

    I've suggest at least a small car for getting around.

    My first trip to Victoria was via a big private car and walk-on ferry that traveled from Port Angeles to Victoria. It is more of an open-ocean ferry and not for people with sea sickness--but it adds a lot more adventure. Taking a small car on it saves money, and then you have a way to get around. Just my personal taste.

    Go to any Buffalo or Niagara area shopping mall for example and many of the cars in the parking lot have Ontario plates.
