I am a country girl and don't usually like any city but Vancouver really struck me as a wonderful place. Very liveable. Didn't like toronto overly. It was very functional but didn't strike me as interesting. How about Vancouver Island? Stunning!
    We were looking at New Brunswick the pictures make it look beautiful

    I wasn't meaning to sound b$tchy - I'd just not heard of it. I consulted the ever-knowing wiki, and appears they are "constitutionally bilingual", while the rest of the country just recognises both languages as offical. Obviously there is a crap load more to it than that, but I'll spare the other readers.

    Does anyone know anything about Markham Ontario? DH read about it last night and it seems like it ticks a lot of our boxes (assuming DH can get a job there)

    It's a Toronto suburb. Listen, I'm from Toronto so I won't knock it.

    It really depends on what you're looking for. Good jobs, good schools, close to a major city (usually rated in the top 3). Tick. Tick. Tick.

    Prettiest place in Canada? Nup. But you can travel easily and see the prettier places. We'll be living close by.

    The US is so vast, may I ask what type of lifestyle you're after? Do you want seasons, or warm weather? How important is cost of living?

    We just want a nice, safe area that is fun and interesting for young families, a place with good schools (public or private) is a must. We would like to be somewhere seasonal the cold doesn't worry us and cost of living we would be in the upper middle bracket with what DH's earning ability will be over there. Sorry not very helpful I know

    hi loodle, maybe when the dates are closer, contact a few real estate people and just get an idea via email of the sort of areas you will find suitable. It is such a big step, a little knowledge in advance will be very helpful. Good luck, marie.
