Your original post has some serious winters attached to it...

My UK employer transferred me here in mid 2012, and with exception of the-not-so-nice winter, my family and I are in love with your birth Country.

We had previously lived in the US and the UK; and we find Canada to be a wealthy and prosperous Country (similar to the US in their good years), it is overall safer than those countries, quality of life is slightly better than the UK, people have more sympathy for others and tend to be more respectful of other people's beliefs.

A negative: TV sucks!!

Animo
(Cheers)

Thank you Jrge. My wife and I have been preparing for our migration for a while, and now that our last child is leaving the nest we are looking forward to our next new adventure in Canada.

Excuse me but I'm curious. What visa will you use to move to and live permanently in Canada?

You're retiring at 54, good for you. If i would have stayed in Britain working in my respectable position in the dental trade, i would probably be lucky to retire by the age of 70. My parents have both worked hard all their lives and now they are old enough to retire (my dad actually receives a pension) they cannot retire because our government is absolutely backwards.
that's what is it like in most countries, that's why people move to Canada, for better opportunities and quality of life.

I moved here after studying in Canada, since the animation industry is good up here in TV animation...and a lot of studios from the USA are actually moving or opening branches up in Canada. I got a job offer before I graduated from a Canadian studio, and the one I was hoping to work at too.
