With its famous ski fields, big, lively cities, and friendly, welcoming locals, there’s no wonder why so many people are flocking to the world’s second largest country by area: Canada!
Canada is one of the most liveable countries in the world, thanks to its stable government, strong economy, low level of corruption, advanced healthcare system, and high level of safety.
So, is moving to Canada the right choice for you? We’ve spoken to the experts at The Moving Company who handle hundreds of international moves every year and have moved countless Kiwis to the Great White North. Here’s what they have to say!
Are you open to long-distance moves for better jobs?
Canada has a larger economy than New Zealand and, depending on your field of work, has more jobs to offer. Yes, it’s far away – but if you find your dream job, then moving to Canada will almost immediately pay off. Industries that are booming in Canada include banking, business, gas and petroleum mining, retail, automotive, and healthcare, not to mention a whole bunch of others.
Are you OK with cold weather?
There’s usually one thing that puts people off about Canada: the cold. And that’s fair enough if you come from a place with a moderate temperature like New Zealand. But you’ll find that summers in Canada are beautiful, never getting too hot, and in winter everywhere is heated to the max.
Plus, you’ll get the opportunity to see snow, have white Christmases, and take part in snow activities like skiing and tobogganing – not to mention drinking eggnog like a local!
Are you moving your family there too?
If you’re moving with your family, we can highly encourage you to pick Canada. Sure, there may be a little more work to do in terms of securing passports, visas, and looking for good schools over there, but the experience is so rewarding that it’s worth it.
Canada is a great place to raise children in; the education system is great, healthcare is covered, and the culture is similar enough to ours so that it’s not too difficult for your children to settle in.
There’s also a range of great sports for the kids to play. In summer, it’s all about soccer, softball, and baseball. In winter, why not try ice skating, ice hockey, or even curling?
