Considerations on preliminary residence in the GTA

Canada : British Expat Discussion Forum - britishexpats.com
Hello folks,

having joined successfully the traditional C.O.P.P.Ps here on B.E. (Club of Proud Ping Pongers ), my wife and I (PR) are now preparing for our way back to Canada, this time it will be either the Greater Vancouver Area or Ontario. Ontario offers more job opportunities for OH (Quality Control/Microbiology in the pharmaceutical industry), so the final decision is still to come.

But for now I would like to focus on Ontario, one thing is for sure: once there we will have to relocate again, closer to work most likely, but where could/should we start best for the first months?

We are not into buying, so house prices do not matter really, it will be renting. Fantastic would be to find a place with a pedestrian zone or main street and a vibrant community, nightlife however is no longer on our most wanted list.

Possible employers are located between

Hamilton/Cambridge/Kitchner/Waterloo/Burlington/Brampton/Mississauga/Toronto/Ajax and beyond, and that’s where things get complicated.

I know it is kinda: By the way, mate, we are looking for work in the UK, where should we stay?

So I am just looking for remarks, perhaps some ideas.

And last but not least (starting perhaps another avalanche )

I have to admit that I am somehow attracted by the charm of the Hammer.

Somewhere between North York/Vaughan/Richmond Hill/Markham/Newmarket could also do the trick, right?

Thanks a bunch in advance.
