    Default Canadian Cities Worth Living In

    I think it's time to leave Montreal.

    Anyone have any experience with other Canadian cities they'd like to share?

    Keep in mind that I've got no liquid savings right now

    This is off-topic, sorry, but I'm curious about the ENTP thought processes at work here: Why do you think it is time to leave your current home city?

    Edit: Just to be on-topic, let me be the first to mention Vancouver which I have heard is awesome to live in.

    Vancouver would be the most desirable place in Canada for me to visit; as for living, couldn't really help you. How's Toronto's reputation?

    I've feel that I've worn out my welcome.

    The friends I have here are not friends who I engage in activities with and therefore being near them isn't necessary.

    I want to know how I'd feel in Vancouver now that I'm not visiting my dad there every second summer and 12 years old.

    You've worn out your welcome in a city of 1.6 million? *backs slowly away from the thread*

    Murk, I love Montreal but I'll try and answer this question without mounting a defense of it!

    First of all I have to say, prepare yourself for a financial shock in Vancouver (and, compared to Montreal, any large city, really - Montreal has a MUCH lower cost of living - housing, food, entertainment, almost everything) if you're thinking about it. Vancouver is beautiful (I'm a BC native) - if you like the sea/beach and outdoor activities, it's an awesome place, but cost of living is high. The vibe is also quite a bit different in Vancouver. I find Montreal to be a more relaxed, accepting city, but I'm not very granola or environmentally minded. Vancouver can be, to me, the city of the wealthy Prius drivers. Again, not necessarily a bad thing, but not my personal vibe. My overall opinion of Vancouver is positive - I'm nitpicking.

    Toronto is a tiny bit of a meh for me. Expensive. There are some Ontario types here who will have more informed opinions.

    Edmonton holds a small piece of my heart - unpretentious, blue-collar city with a kind of rednecky but friendly scene. Calgary, forget it unless you either have a lot of $ or you have some skillz (because they pay well, esp. in the oil patch, for specific skillz).

    Can't comment on any maritime cities but my ex thought Halifax was Canada's most liveable city...

    He hasn't Economica! He's sick of Montreal, not vice-versa!

    is vancouver that much more expensive kan?

    I know what it's like as far as the granola and stuff, and that does bother me a bit but the emphasis on cocaine and being a hipster in montreal bothers me at least as much.
