At least once in their lives, everyone had an idea of a better, richer and brighter life abroad. So that the wages were higher, and taxes are lower, and landscapes are more beautiful. One of the most popular areas of Ukrainian emigration abroad is Canada. However, feedbacks about life in Canada indicate that expectations are not always met, so it’s important to compare the pros and cons of living in this country.
8 Benefits of living in Canada
The most important advantage is the high standard of life in Canada, both in cities and in villages. The ratio of average wages in Canada, the United States and Germany is approximately the same if compared to the grocery basket. The fact is that the economy is relatively stable. There is also a constant need for workpower. Therefore, if you find a job with high or even average wages, you can live much better than in your own country.
The second reason – beautiful nature in the outskirts of cities and provinces of Canada. Everywhere there are many greenery, flowers and various plantings. Psychologists have proven that even such a small factor as the beauty of the surrounding nature, reduces the level of stress. Quite often, in the adjoining areas there are flower gardens and decorative bush figures.
It’s also worth to mention about national parks in Canada. They are located all over the country, so think for a long time about where to spend your vacation is not necessary. Another reason to visit parks in Canada is the availability of well-equipped camping zones. Some of them are made specially for rest with children.
