Summary: The pros of living in Canada include its high quality of life, excellent healthcare system, and strong economy. Canada is also known for its multiculturalism, with people from all over the world living in harmony. Additionally, Canada is a safe and secure country with low crime rates. On the other hand, the cons of living in Canada include its cold climate, high cost of living, and long distances between cities. Additionally, the Canadian job market can be competitive, making it difficult to find employment.

What are the pros and cons of living in Canada?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Canada responded:

"Needs a complete facelift, typical ex farming town which has 60% seniors and no transportation (rail or bus service ) to hospitals over 100 km away or big stores. Such a shame that a beautiful town with so much for recreation, walking trails, hiking , skiing, etc. To many empty stores and houses. Desperately needs investment , plus youngsters need to know what it's like to visit a cinema or go to ice cream, soda parlor. Absolutely nothing for youngsters. In fact nothing here at all except land !," said one expat in living in Crystal City, Canada.

"Expats and digital nomads often appreciate the high quality of life in Canada, with its excellent healthcare system, strong economy, and welcoming culture. They also enjoy the country's stunning natural beauty, with its vast forests, mountains, and lakes. Additionally, Canada is known for its multiculturalism, with a diverse population that speaks many languages and celebrates many cultures. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the cold winters and high cost of living in Canada to be a challenge," wrote one expat in Canada.
