The best place to move to in Canada

Friday, April 21, 2017

When you first relocated to Canada, you probably chose your destination based on several factors: family or friends you might already have in that city, a previous visit to the city that you enjoyed, or research you had conducted and came to the conclusion it was the right choice for you based on the amenities, employment, and climate the city had to offer.

However, Canada is large and diverse, with many different provinces and municipalities that could vastly influence your Canadian experience depending on your location. If you aren't permanently settled in yet, consider exploring other municipalities, both in and outside the province you're moving into, to see what they have to offer. You may be certain that if you would entrust your move to Toronto Movers, your relocation will be as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

Calgary, Alberta

Located in the province of Alberta, Calgary is one of Canada's most diverse and prosperous cities. It sits in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and is the meeting point for the Bow and Elbow rivers. Fresh air frames the city along with numerous open spaces, mountains, rivers, and parks and pathways. Compared to most of Canada, Calgary enjoys many days of sunshine, which makes living in this city a very attractive prospect.

Some immigrants are attracted to Calgary, because of its low tax rate and cost of living. Despite the recent global economic downswing, Calgary succeeded in prospering, thanks to the well-developed agriculture and gasoline industries. If you wish to move to Calgary, Canadian Movers have pocket-friendly for you starting at $89 per hour for two movers and a truck.

Edmonton, Alberta

Edmonton is the capital of Alberta and is the second most populated city in the province. This city lies on the North Saskatchewan River and is the center of the Edmonton Capital Region, located in Central Alberta's central region.

Dubbed the "Oil Capital of Canada" due to massive oil, gas and oil sands reserves in Alberta, Edmonton recorded the fastest growing economy in comparison to other large Canadian cities and had the fourth-highest GDP of all Canadian cities in 2011. Due to a lot of favourable factors, such as employment opportunities, excellent growth performance and, of course, low Alberta taxes, Edmonton appears to be a very attractive place to move, not only for Canadian residents, but also for migrants from around the world.

London, Ontario

Midway between Detroit and Toronto, London is nestled in the heart of Southwestern Ontario. The sixth-largest city in Ontario and 10th largest in Canada, this charming city serves as a regional hub for neighbouring communities. London has a lot to offer to its new tenants, including affordable houses, beautiful parks, as well as health and care facilities and, of course, excellent education. If you are looking for the urban big city lifestyle or the appeal and security of a mid-size community, London is a perfect choice.

Toronto, Ontario

Toronto is one of the world's most multicultural cities. 50% of its population, 2.48 million people (5.5 million in the Greater Toronto Area) are born outside of Canada making it one of the most diverse places to live.

Toronto is conveniently divided into regions. Before, Toronto was just the central downtown and close surrounding area. This was until 1998 when the city was revised and expanded to cover more than 240 neighbourhoods, making this great city even greater.

The city also boasts a mosaic of languages with well over 150 languages spoken in the city every day. Over 30 per cent of Toronto residents speak a language other than English or French at home – Besides French and English, more than 30 per cent of people who live in Toronto, speak a different language at home. Hundreds of ethnocultural organizations operate in the city – including professional associations and community centers.

On the list containing the safest large metropolitan regions in North America, Toronto holds the top place, according to Places Rated Almanac. Moving to Toronto can be done by local moving company Toronto Movers.

Vancouver, British Columbia

Vancouver City is one of the top destinations for immigrants to Canada, particularly (for) those from the Asia-Pacific Region. This comes as no surprise as it's considered one of the most beautiful, liveable cities not only in Canada, but also in the whole world, thanks to its favourable climate, diversity, and impressive natural setting, all in a growing metropolitan city. If you wish to move to Vancouver, just contact a local branch of Vancouver Movers and enjoy your move.

I have very little experience moving - I packed a few of my smaller items into boxes before the big day, and was smart enough to label and organize them by room, but on the big day there was still lots to be done. Fortunately the guys at Atlantic Coast had extra boxes and moving supplies, including packing tape, and while it might have cost us extra for them to help us pack it would have cost more for us to cancel our appointment, and they were completely understanding. They told us this happens all the time, and we had a great time chatting with them. It took all day, but we successfully moved a poorly packed four-bedroom house from Dartmouth to Halifax in ten hours - well done!

On the phone, Atlantic Coast impressed me with their prices and professionalism. In real life, I wondered why they had so much equipment with them - until the footrest in our old recliner (which my husband and I tried moving) fell off, and the bottoms fell out of two of the kitchen boxes, and we kept finding important items we had forgotten to back. In the end I realized – professionals always think ahead! They charged exactly what they promised, too!

True professionals. They moved my family from Halifax to Ottawa. Very pleasant team, nice over the phone, detailed estimates. I'll book them again next time.
