I am moving to Edmonton from Ireland this Month and am so happy to return to Canada (originally from BC). If anyone is planning to move to Ireland and has never been there before you better stuff your wallets!!!
Ireland has become (stats of course) the most expensive place to live in Europe and that's no lie. You couldn't buy a brick in a place and the cost of living is through the roof. You could be in any city now as Ireland has lost it's own style.
I have been reading messages on how Edmonton is a no place to live, well I have been to Edmonton and do find the people are very friendly (more than Ireland now), the cost of living is affordable and if you want to vist BC it's only 1 1/2 hrs in flight. Sure it has snow and it's cold but there's alot to make up for! I know more people from BC that are fedup just paying their mortage and cannot do anything else in life and are making the change. If you have children and want to live a simple life, than there is no reason you shouldn't give it a try. People should travel and realize that Canada has a lot to offer!!!!!!!!!1 Cheers :
