Success Stories/Words of Caution

Folks -

I’m preparing for my move to Canada and very excited!

I’ve been doing some research to see how people who made the move recently are faring. To summarize my observations:

  • Tech is booming. No doubt about it.
  • The Canadian economy is smaller
  • people who are targeting their job search and network will not have a major problem (as it is anywhere else)
  • For those moving from the US, expect income and expenses to be different, be ready to make lifestyle adjustments.
  • Toronto and Ottawa are the places to be for tech. Followed by Montreal and Vancouver.

Anything that I got wrong or can be added? Hoping to hear your success stories or pointers for those of us about to make the leap.
