So you want to come to Canada…Great!
But where exactly?
How do you decide what province/territory to settle in, considering the fact that there are about 13 of them: Alberta, Ontario, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec (French-speaking), New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, , Newfoundland & Labrador and Yukon.
There are certain factors to consider when choosing what province to settle in. Most would consider:
1. A province where they already have close friends or relatives who could give them soft landing and help cushion the effects of a series of culture shock.
2. A province where there’s a higher chance of getting employment in your field/skill. For instance, persons in the oil and gas industry would naturally pick Alberta over Ontario; persons in the IT field would settle for British Columbia; for automobile industry/manufacturing/journalism, Ontario would be your best bet. Do your research – online, ask friends – before making the move.
3. A province with mild weather. Some locations are colder/warmer than others.
4. A province with lower cost of living. Some provinces are more cost-effective than others. The cost of living – food, housing, healthcare needs and taxes differ from province to province. Alberta is arguably the most advantageous province for relocation when it comes to cost of living.
