Mahendra initially posted:
I want to retire in Windsor for few reasons; (1) southernmost city in Canada hence weather is bit milder; (2) close to USA. Now my question is: How is the public transport within Windsor , and (2) What about transport to Detroit Airport?
ejs replied most recently with:
I am a Windsor native currently living in the Detroit suburbs. Public transport in Windsor is limited to buses; the system is OK, but most residents have cars. I do not believe there is public transport to DTW airport because it is across the border, but there are taxis and shuttles

Hi Guys, Can you please suggest a place which will be ideal for settling with family in Canada? I am a married man of 39 yrs age with two kids ( 6 yrs - daughter and 9 yrs - son) from India and plan to move to Canada with my family (wife & kids). There are some concerns and would love to have your views/suggestion on the same. Since I have small kids, education is major concern followed by job security and social security/social acceptance. I would also like to have some ideas on Tax part and real estate and medical expenses. Is taking insurance a must here? I did some research on net and found out that it is a very cold place in the winters (temp dropping to -30degC). So, would prefer a little warmer place. Suggestions on any other things I need to consider, will be helpful.

My intent is to become a naturalized citizen of Canada, but I need to move one step at a time. Have I missed a resource on this forum for emigration consultation? Thanks for your time.

I work outside the country on contract for 6 - 8 months per year. I am covered by the company for any medical issues. Do I still have to pay for BC medical?
wafa replied most recently with:
If you opt out of BC medical you will have to wait 90 days once you're back in BC to opt back in. Once you're out you have to reapply for it once you're back in the Province.
joband replied most recently with:
Are you a BC residen?t..if so you have to pay for BC medical insurance or you can opt out..but that is not an overly publicized fact. If you opt out you will not be covered for any medical while in BC unless your employer also has provate medical coverage for that..but be sure it is not just "extended" coverage..which most non government medical plans are as Canada is a totally government based medical system. Each province determines coverage payments based on income (BC) or some other factor..or if it is free. If your company says you are covered be sure to check to see what that actually involves.

Hi guys, Where would suit my lifestyle in Canada? I am a single woman in my mid 30's with a dog looking to move to Canada next year. I have looked at tons of places but how do you decide when you are judging on crime rates and house prices..?! So, what I'd love is just some ideas on where would be good to look at. I might even do an 8 week recon before I make the 'big' move. I love good scenery, great outdoor activities and obviously dog friendly open spaces would be great. I like great coffee and a good meal and cocktail but don't want a manic city centre. Lots of boxes to tick but I don't expect to tick them all. I work for myself so employment isn't an issue but would like to be around similar age people rather than 20 year olds. Any advice about how to go about deciding where to look would be amazing!! Thanks all!

Thanks. Van definitely seems more 'me' than 5 months of snow and cold in the East. Visa changes have made the move halt for now but I'll be visiting in March for a few months to look around and get some info about what to do. Wish the Uk were this thorough with immigrants.. it'd solve a few problems.. :)

I was born and raised in Calgary, moved to Van and then Ottawa and then back to Van. You need to think about SNOW. Do you like snow? Are you okay with the cold? BC is expensive but it doesn't snow like the rest of the country .... well southern BC anyway. Vancouver is the least snowest (is that a real word??) place in Canada. Back to being expensive, but it has a lot to offer and very dog friendly (except if you rent ... 1/4 are dog friendly) but it's a big place. Crime - normal for a big city of 1.5 mill peeps (with the tri-cities Burnaby, Coquitlam, Richmond, etc - there's more than 3 so I don't know why it's called tri ...). If you don't want gang crime stay out of Surrey & Abbotsford. Good luck in your choice.
