Some people like living in the north to be part of mineral resources and/or to experience natural wonders, such as polar bears, icebergs and beautiful Northern Lights. In winters, temperatures there can go as low as minus fifty degrees Celsius. Perhaps cold weather is a good thing. My father told me that very cold temperatures kill certain bugs or disease germs. They may also motivate people to work hard so that they can stay warm.
These are only a few places that people might like when travelling in Canada. With so many places and resources to choose from in Canada, some people may take these things for granted. From a traveller’s perspective, I can see that Canada is full of prosperity and resources. Every time I travel in this country, I enjoy and learn important lessons about Canada, its people and myself.
It is a blessing having all these choices. Sometimes, you want to live in all of the places, and sometimes it may be difficult choosing only one place to live in.
For example, someone asked me where he should live between Ontario and Alberta. I told the person that the decision/answer depends on so many factors surrounding him. I told him that it all comes back to what he wants in life.
At the end of the day, the person has to make the decision. The following questions might help people seeking answers about where to live between these two provinces. As I have been to both places, the questions below might guide you in making the proper decision for yourself.
These questions are only a few examples; there are many things that you may be interested in, apart from the things mentioned below. I advise you to do the research between the two places, before making a final decision about where to live. As well, the decision me evolve with time. It may not be static one.
- Do you like to live near the mountains; personally, I love nature (Alberta has the Rocky Mountains)?
- Do you like to live in a fast-growing economy place (Alberta is considered by many people as one of the fastest growing economy in Canada)?
- Do you like to live near or around large cities (e.g., Toronto & Montreal and near New York State, also)?
- Do you like to be living in a province with a largest population in Canada? (Ontario has bigger population than Alberta)
- Most importantly, think about your place of employment or your source of income, education and housing between the two places. If you have all these things in place, then ask yourself the above questions and more… Hope this helps; comments and new ideas are welcome.
