What Canadian City to Move To (from US)?
goals: raise family. stable job for a physical therapist; bonus points for structural engineering positions, but i realize this eliminates all small town options.
wants: clean air. close to ski resort. close to appealing mountains and other natural beauty. safe. more than adequate water supply. no consistent noise (like loud highway that penetrates the whole town, frequent trains, air traffic). bonus for creeks in town.
size: between 5,000 - 100,000 people
location: likely somewhere within 150 miles of the border (avoid extremes a little more, plus family access when visiting)
places so far (though they might not meet all goals):
- Armstrong, BC
- Chilliwack, BC
- Fernie, BC
- Golden, BC
- Creston, BC
- Nelson, BC
- Penticton, BC
- Revelstoke, BC
- Rossland, BC
- Salmon Arm, BC
- Vernon, BC
please feel free to shoot down any of the towns (but give reasons). this hard working american is looking to get out of this gun-infested country. the thought of my young kids or wife being in that situation, or in a school lockdown drill, has been eating away at me for years. we should be able to meet the immigration testing requirements and will be good, well-educated citizens.
