Canada is a vast country which is often over shadowed by the neighbouring United States of America but Canada is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Unknown to many, Canada is actually the second largest country in the world by land mass, and is one of the top 10 economies (by size) in the world. Hence there is plenty of room for a growing population number to live in Canada .
Canada has 10 provinces, 3 territories, five regional areas, 25 cities, 31 million people. What does this mean? Canada is large! As you make the transition to living in Canada you can look forward to learning and exploring all that Canada has to offer.
In what some may find surprising, the country was original inhabited by the aboriginal tribes commonly associated with Australia, although the country has very strong links with the UK and France, hence English and French are stated as the two main languages of the country.
Canada is well known for the mounted police force, the “mounties”, and offers some of the most beautiful and relatively untouched natural scenery seen anywhere in the world. Often thought of as a “poor cousin” of the USA, Canada has a lot to offer, and is one of the most progressive nations of the world.
The climate of Canada varies from Arctic in the north to temperate on the south. The two ends of Canada experience two different types of climate, which are opposite to each other. It is said that in winters Canadians feel thankful that they have their jackets and in summer they feel the same for they have the refuge of their air-conditioned homes.

If you’re looking around the Greater Toronto Area, have a look at Richmond Hill, Etobicoke, Oakville or Newmarket . If you’re looking to get into a booming neighborhood, try Georgetown or Orangeville. These two places are doing really well in the real estate market – you’ll get a nice big home over there.
Also Guelph or Beamsville are great places in Ontario; Vancouver is very beautiful, heaven on earth ! but expensive. Don’t overlook Halifax (a cheaper and smaller coastal alternative to Vancouver), which is also very nice, Saskatoon in the prairies is a really great artsy town. Edmonton if you like giant shopping malls. Calgary if you love to ski.
