If you are organising removals to Canada from the UK you may be wondering about what your new life will be like.

Removals to Canada: Living in Canada
Canada is one of the largest countries in the world in terms of land mass and is second only to Russia. Many expats move here as it offers a superb standard of living and property prices are lower than in the UK. It also offers an excellent healthcare system which ranks among the best globally.
The country has one of the highest immigration rates per head of population. The good news is that in recent years the Canadian immigration service has undertaken a drive to recruit new permanent residents to help reduce skill shortages. So, you will feel welcome in Canada and in almost every city you will encounter those proud of their English heritage.
Most British expats settle in the big cities such as Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, as well as ski resorts such as Calgary. Some expats working for multinational companies organise removals to Canada on inter-post transfers while others take up posts in the oil or gas industry, or move to join a spouse.
It is beautiful country with stunning scenery and wide open spaces: you can enjoy colourful autumns, fairytale winters and hot summers. If you enjoy being active, you'll never get bored here. In winter you can ice-skate in the city of Toronto against the backdrop of skyscrapers, ski in the resort town of Whistler, or see the breathtaking northern lights in Northern Quebec. Summers are just as exciting, offering activities such as hiking, mountain biking, and canoeing. Or, you can simply soak up the atmosphere at one of Canada's many festivals.
If you enjoy sight-seeing, there are many beautiful places to visit such as the incredible Niagara Falls, the superb and tranquil Banff National Park which is the country's first national park, Kluane National Park which is home to Canada's highest peak, the picturesque Cavendish Beach on King Edward Island and Churchill Manitoba, which has been declared the polar bear capital of the world.
Removals to Canada: Weather in Canada
Canada has cold winters and hot summers. Winters are harsh and can get down to minus 30C, however, if you live in the city, you can walk to many destinations through heated subways and the snow on the roads is generally cleared quickly. Summers are the complete opposite and can reach temperatures of 32C.
Removals to Canada: Language in Canada
Canada has both British and French heritage and is officially a bilingual country. Almost a quarter of the population speak French, and most of the French speaking population live in the area of Quebec.
Removals to Canada: Population and Economy in Canada
Canada has a population of around 35 million people with immigration contributing to the recent population boost.
Two of the biggest industries in Canada are petroleum and logging. It is also a leading force in science, technology and communications, and in addition to this, operates an active space programme.
