Hi dudes, I'll be visiting Montreal next month, then early next year I will book a trip to another city, I'd love suggestions on that! I'm also in Canada to investigate options to totally emigrate out of the UK one day. I'll be there to look at house prices and jobs available and I would love advice on that from happy dudes all across Canada. I've worked as a support worker in a homeless shelter for nearly 10 years and I picked up some experience on factors surrounding it like drug/alcohol abuse and mental health but I feel I would like to switch, and I'm not too picky what I'd do. I'm looking for some fun, a fun place to live and work that's cheap. Thanks dudes!

Definitely check out Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, it might remind you of home. I'd suggest going to these on the trip. cause while rent / housing is generally cheaper on this side of the country, finding work can be more of an issue.

Cost of living wise, yeah, east coast is the place to be. And if you wanna work in your field, there's definitely work to be had.

But given that i'm sure you wouldn't be surprised to learn that the Maritimes isn't the strongest economic area of Canada, and opportunities are more limited than other parts of the country.

That said, it's pretty nice out here and for four solid months a year the weather isn't too bad. All told we're a pretty laid back folk, we let the rest of the country argue amongst themselves while they forget we exist!
