I don't believe you can in Ontario, unless you petition the school board and are granted the right to do so. Typically, you would finish the year (sometimes even the term) and then transfer for the beginning of the next year/term.I know they can in other provinces so I don't see why not.
Hawthorne Village is a lovely area and the purchase prices are very reasonable for what you get. You should be able to get a rental for $1500-$1850 depending on how many bedrooms you want and wether you would like a detached or semi-detached home. When you come to buy you would be looking at prices in the range of $350,000to $750,000, again depending on what you need so you should be able to stay in the area and not have to uproot the kids.So we would have to choose our area carefully. We will be moving to milton so I was hoping to rent in Hawethorn village and then hopefully buy there in 12 months. I was just worried in case this plan doesn't work. Didn't want to uproot the kids again as we are already expats in another country !
You could try to find a rental close to shops and schools so you wouldnt need a car straight away. You can check the walkscore here:That's good to know ! Would I be able to walk to shops and schools or would I still need a car as soon as I arrive ?
