With Donald Trump now firmly in the White House lots of Americans claimed they would move to Canada. Maybe more of us should consider it just because it really is one of the world’s greatest places to live. Read on as we present 5 reasons you need to move to Canada!
1. Diverse Cultures
Diversity has always played an important part in Canada’s history, culture and society. Immigrants in Canada represent 20% of the population! Although Canada recognises two official languages (English and French) walking around in Canada it wouldn’t be rare to here tens of different languages buzzing through the street!
2. The People
The people in Canada are renowned for being some of the nicest in the world! Canadians are unfailingly polite, genuine and happy! Honking your horn is considered rude and the people of Canada would never skip you in a queue! Canadian niceness is contagious and rubs off on everyone that visits.
3. The seasons
The seasons in Canada are extreme. In the summer months, the weather is glorious and is perfect for exploring Canada – a trip to Niagra, what watching in Quebec, visit Algonquin Park in northern Ontario. In the other hand, winter in Canada is chilly and snowy! However, there are still plenty of activities to do, skiing, snowboarding or visit one of the many winter festivals like Winterlude in Ottawa. The contrasting seasons in Canada provide the best of both worlds!
Walking down the streets of any Canadian city after a night out it’s likely you’ll see loads of people eating Poutine! Poutine is a mouthwateringly famous Canadian dish that comes from Quebec. Poutine is made with French fries, cheese and smothered in gravy. The delicious food is largely recognised as a comfort food and there is also a world Poutine eating championship.
5. World Class Events
There is so much to do in Canada, aside from outside activities and exploration there is also a host of world class events on offer! The Toronto International Film Festival is one of the biggest film festivals in the world! When Hollywood takes over the streets of Toronto hundreds of thousands of people flock to the streets! This year the Diageo World Class Global Finals are being hosted in Canada to find the nation’s greatest bartender. No matter what time of year, it’s unlikely you will ever be bored in Canada.
