if quebec
theres really only one option---montreal its a really multiultural city with a great atmosphere-- almost continental--its a lot of fun living there

ontario has perhaps the best economic opportuinities- its more middle of the road-- efficient place--
toronto has a lot of stuff to do-- jobs are probably good there-- but unfortunately-- its starting to becomme a bit unlivable--hard to commute into town-- really bad traffic--- in my opinion not a pretty city---
ottawa is very beutifull mid sized city--

ontario is probably yer beat bet

oh wait--- of course vancouver tops the world in terms of a stunning setting- perhaps the most physically beutifull city in the world

You still need to understand french and be able to communicate in french in Montreal, to not get frustraited often and on a daily basis. If you believe your french is good enough Montreal is a great place to be.

Ontario, and if by Ontario we mean Toronto , French won't get you that far and your english should be alright. If you can order Tim bits at Tim Hortons then your english is good enough. However BC is a very good place to live and I'd say go to Vancover, though I don't live there and I admit I havn't been there in a long time its a nice progressive city with good people.

Apparently not. I was busy posting on another board. An AMERICAN board, no less.

I thought I felt rumbling.

But the dog farts a lot and I usually have headphones on.

Where will I buy beer on Sunday, now? This is going to be a problem. Stupid LCBO bastards.

it depends what you are looking for...

Québec is more like Europe, Ontario is more like USA, so if you want a change go to Québec

There's a lot of job you can be hire, it is not very complicated...

That's correct if you move to the east part of Montreal. However, in the west part of the city, particularly the West Island, you will not get very far if you cannot speak English. The West Island (about 10-12 towns in Montreal) is overwhelmingly English speaking.

This also holds true for some non-west Island towns (examples: Hampstead and Westmount).

You should go to Quebec. And Montreal is the best city for jobs and housing and you can find something fun to do on almost any street.

If you golf sunny Surrey is the place to be. If you can stomach poutine go to Quebec.

Si vous voulez vivre dans une grande ville avec un gout international, Montreal est certainment une bonne location. Mais si vous voulez une ville moyene avec un quartier Francais Winnipeg pourais vous interesser. Nous avons des ete spectaculaire mais amener votre gros manteau pour l'hiver. Ca nous arrive souvent de decendre a moin 30 ou plus. Quelle sort de metier chercher vous?

Well, since you're not even a Canadian and you assume Quebec is not part of Canada, I wouldn't even welcome you to our country... How about staying in the US?

Quebec is hardly like Europe. Well, if you include people smoking in all public places including the metro..

You can take that from an ex-montrealer who currently lives in Germany (and an extensive traveller here). Quebec City looks like a European city, Montreal looks like any other North American city. Any other place in Quebec is pretty much just like the rest of Canada or even most of North America.

Most people from Quebec who have never been over here to Europe always claim the province to be similar to Europe. Not the case.


And Toronto American? I would hardly insult the city to that extent. It has a lower crime rate than the US, it has less crime that Montreal, it's much cleaner than most of Quebec and the so-called multicultural model Canada has secretly adopted over the past 20 years works best in Toronto, if you can say it actually works.

Now I will stand up for Quebec in some cases, and especially Montreal.. but thats just mis-information.

I think Montrea, PQ (not party quebecois) is a good place to live. It reflects partly europeen and partly north american life. In terms of job opportunities, Toronto is said to be good place. However, if you have a job, the cost of living in montreal is less then in toronto. Public transportations is also well developped in montreal. About vancouver, I cannot say a word, because I have never been there.

Montreal is great. Personally, I can't stand Ontario, sorry folks. It costs too much to live in Ontario and compared to Quebec, the food is lousy.

Alberta has jobs out the wazoo, consider there too.

I'm actually pretty sure I want to live in Montreal, and rarely met a Canadian I didn't like (except for a couple humorless border patrol agents at Lacolle). Jersey has an overwhelming share of jerks. Anyways, are there any people here that immigrated from the US? I'm filling out the forms and have questions about some of the supporting documents.

Winnipeg has a french quarter? I did not know that. A lot of Ontario north of the French River is Francophone. So is the Ottawa region.

I live in the provence of Quebec. I think of Montreal as a big hole that doesn't have enough bridges to get out of. Too crowded for me. Quebec city is beautiful . Lived in T.O. and it is a city that works but again too crowded. Would love too see Vancouver but it is also expensive there I hear.As for MTL there symbol is a stadium that looks awfully like a toilet with the lid up. Symbolically thats where our money goes to here in this provence, down the toilet or in the Governments hands (samething)!
