Where to live?
Deciding where you want to live in Canada if you can successfully immigrate here is something that you will definitely want to think about. The west coast (Vancouver & Victoria) definitely have the best weather all year round in the country, but are much more expensive to live in and have less jobs than say Alberta. You will also need to consider which cities have more employment in your line of work.

It's also much easier if you are marrying a Canadian or have family who already live here who can sponsor you.
