    I noticed that this Canadian forum hasn't been touched for a while, so I'd like to ask fellow Canadians where you are from, and where else you have lived in Canada(if anywhere)?

    I live in Winnipeg now, but I've lived in Alberta (Calgary and area, Fort Vermilion, Red Deer, Edmonton), Cranbrook, B.C. and in the Yukon.

    How about you guys?

      I'm not yet a Canadian, prairieprincess. Apparently I'm a landed immigrant - as opposed to a hovering or floating immigrant, I presume.  My wife and I were both born in Scotland.

        Yes Cagsil

        We have a friendly dictatorship in Canada; all in all it’s a balanced and happy place to live. I have a wasp background from London; now most of my time is specking Spanish and building an eco village on my own land in Belize.

        Spend a lot of time working the art and entertainment in the USA also.

        Enjoy your views on this forum.

    I was born in the Philippines but my family came to Canada more than forty years ago.  Came to live in Toronto and never left.  Oh I lived in Ajax for 2 years, and lived in Texas for about 6 months.. but came back to Toronto as there is no place like home.. Toronto is home for me.

    Well, Canada is a comfortable country, and if you like comfort (even small one) and "things"- it's hard to leave. I would love to go to my old country, but I don't want to miss all that comfort of a stable civilised country. I don't like cold showers or no showers. I guess I am a very spoiled creature. But Toronto drives me crazy. Too many people. http://serve.mysmiley.net/fighting/fighting0079.gif
