Australia has an edge here, from what I have heard from people who have lived in both countries.

No issues with PR as such, but I faced other problems. See this thread I created long back, for the details:-

Canada, all the way mate !

Just three years to get Citizenship (after which you can work in the US. There on, California (or insert your fav state, just dont say NY! ) all the way!)

Trudeau seems to be more of a visionary than the PM(s) in Australia who change at the drop of a hat. When they are busy fighting amongst themselves for the highest seat, who is bothered about running the country.
From what I have heard, Trudeau has recently hauled the benefit system and there are much better benefits for young families.

Recently there was a question in the Australian parliament where the PM refused to answer if there were chances of Medicare being privatised.

Much more adjustment, maturity and experience with immigrants in the society as a whole.
Just the weather can be silly for some part of the year. But that's manageable.

I can't compare Australia versus Canada, but I can give my opinion on Australia versus the USA. While most people would probably opt for the USA, being known as the "land of liberties" and thousands of career options, I'd go for Australia. I have a family in the USA and I could easily go for Green Card, but having lived in both countries, I didn't hesitate to embark on a long journey of Australian skilled visa instead.

If Silicon Valley, dollar bills and glamorous firms are all that you have in your head, don't choose Australia. On the other hand, if you wish to enjoy high standard of living, wonderful climate and nature, relatively high level of safety, isolation from world's troubles and appreciate not being the center of the world, choose Australia. Australia is really laid back, even compared to Europe where I am from and especially compared to more hectic and busy parts of the worlds, such as Asia. I currently live in China and while both China and Australia, which is economically closely influenced by the former, are not having the best times, I see Asia-Pacific being the powerhouse of the current century.

Now, if you want to put Canada into all this picture, just imagine a smaller, more peaceful version of the USA, with somewhat less career opportunities. Pay in mind, that for many people climate plays a huge roll in life. Canada and Australia are very different in this regard.

Basically the country continues to be run by the public service regardless of who the Prime Minister is at the time. It is not too badly run as we have not had a recession in twenty-five years. It is early days yet for Trudeau.
I can assure you that Medicare will not be privatised. You need to remember that we are a two house democracy which is a fusion of the Westminster system and the American. We are partly having changes of leadership as no one has been able to get many changes through the Senate. That is not going to change any time soon, even if there is a double dissolution.
Canada and Australia are both immigrant countries so both are experienced with immigration. Canada was settled earlier so I guess it is true that they have greater experience. I cannot comment whether Canadians are more tolerant of outsiders. Their culture is very polite so it is possible their thoughts are kept more to themselves.
Australia, by world standards, has a very high rate of intermarriage between different ethnic groups which should indicate a reasonable level of tolerance.
As far as I know here we get longer paid holidays than in Canada, the unemployment rate is slightly lower, we have long service leave unlike almost anywhere else. But we are further from most places, the places with good employment opportunities are very expensive and the traffic is bad in the main cities.
