We are planning our move to Canada sometime next year.We have been in US for 12 years , so we are kind of excited but apprehensive about the move. Ultimately every county has its pros and cons, and you have to compromise on somethings to gain somethings.The most common trade off for many seems to be between peace of mind and high TC. So I was curious to know what other compromises did people make after making the move.For us, we will potentially we compromising on
1) Number of Job opportunities (compared to US).
2) A single family house with a nice backyard. (The real estate market in Vancouver is crazy and single family homes with a back yard seem to be in short supply in suburbs around Vancouver).
3) Moving away from a established support system of friends and family. Most of our friends and family in US are on a green card or are US citizens.This part has been especially difficult, but ultimately peace of mind is more imp for us.
Edit:I am aware of all the pros in Canada, just curious to know what people “gave up” .
