      Hello BAs...

      I have just come across this forum from the "other" expat site after discovering it through google. Anyway I thought I'd pop in and say hi. Is there any other Brits In Canada out there? :wub:

      Hi barbara,

      Welcome from the "other" side as you put it! First one in the Canada section then. As we come into winter here in Australia, you guys are looking forward to the lighter days then? And hopefully summer weather?
      Hope its not like the typical summer you get in Scotland. :GEEK: I believe they are having something of a heatwave at the moment tho!

      Hi,

      I think you're the first from Canada (lets hope the first of many), as you can see Brits is relatively new and membership is rising, most of us seem to be in Aus at the moment.

      I hope so RobinS - Its only been around a month or so.. Its full of these bloody Pommy expats at the mo :twitcy:! I am one to all the way from the Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond - Well close enough - Glasgow to Perth WA.

      Never really thought about Canada to be honest.. Why did you choose Canada?

      hey there, thought i'd quickly jump in on this new bandwagon too hehe. Still living in the UK at min, was quite decided that i wanted to move to Oz, however, having some doubts about the employment situation over there for electricians, or to be more precise, the amount of retraining/licensing required to work in a trade i have already been working in for several years!!! All at my own cost too i have to add. Also got bit of an issue with spiders.....
      But anyway, on the front page of one of todays newspapers, (think it was the daily mail?) Canada are apparently screaming out for sparkys, and they are being put on the high demand list which could even mean the Canadian government offer a cash resettlement incentive. Or at least thats the way i understood it? They are also being 'fast-tracked' with visa's, and could take as little as 6-9 months to be over there.
      Food for thought eh?
      So, anyone in Canada, my question(s) are....
      Where are the better areas or cities to be living in or around,
      What is the general annual weather like in the suggested area / city
      Is the cost of living comparable to the UK?
      Are there any dangerous spiders/snakes/crocs/jellyfish/octopuses (octopii??) etc ?
      Sorry for rambling and digressing away from thread original discussion...
