Your Next Home Could be in this Canadian Paradise

In our attempt to help you move to Canada and choose the perfect place to settle in Canada, we love talking about big cities, bringing you places like Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver. We also talked a lot about Quebec for our French speaking friends.
All these places are undoubtedly appealing.  However, a new analysis of happiness surveys across Canada shows that people who live in small towns are much happier.  Thus we decided to introduce you to some of Canada’s most charming and appealing small towns.  You may not even know these places exist, and you really should.  So welcome to our series about the best places to live in Canada: its smaller towns.

This time I’d like to introduce you to my personal favorite:

The town named BANFF!

OK, first Banff fact: it has a very cool name.  One syllable that takes all the air out of your lungs.  Due to its special regulations, it’s one of the tougher places to move to, but much like most things in life – the tougher it is to do, the greater the value.
You can find Banff nestled up in the Rockies in Alberta, as a part of Banff National Park.  It was settled in 1880, as the transcontinental railway was built through the Bow Valley.  In 1883 several railway workers found the hot springs located on the side of Sulphur Mountain, and soon after – in 1885 – Canada began to promote the town as an international resort and spa.  In 1887 the town and surrounding area were named “Rocky Mountain Park”. This was the start of Canada’s National Park system.

The town is named after Banff, Scotland – birthplace of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1884.  The name of the town was lent to a crater on Mars in 1976.  In 1985 Banff National Park – which includes the town – was declared a World Heritage site by the UN.  Currently, the town’s population comes in at just under 9000 people, and a little over 2000 households.  The town’s economy is based heavily on tourism, so if you’re looking for a job in Canada and have tourism experience – imagine the joy of living and working in a picturesque resort town on a charming mountain.


Tell your friends! Banff is an amazing place!

The town as a whole is a resort town and one of Canada’s most popular tourist destinations.  You can walk from it’s southern edge to it’s northern edge in about an hour, and an east-west route would take 30-40 minutes to walk across.  Banff is known for incorporating both the spectacular Majesty of the mountains with the comfort of hot springs.  The town hosted the 2014 Olympic winter games and living in this town would keep one very fit.  The town offers the coolest types of sports activities such as biking, hiking and scrambling.  What’s scrambling? Go to Banff and find out (but seriously, it’s a kind of wall climbing technique that looks a little like Spiderman).

Maybe not EXACTLY like Spiderman…

The town is surrounded by 3 ski resorts, if scrambling doesn’t do it for you.  You can also walk on water on Banff lakes.  In the winter, after they freeze…

The town doesn’t just love fitness, it also loves its entertainment.  Banff hosts 4 major festivals per year – the Banff World Television Festival, the Banff Mountain Film Festival, Rocky Mountain Music Festival and Bike fest.  The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity hosts many outdoor concerts, musical shows, dance, opera and theatre.

The town’s great charm is magnified by the various kinds of wildlife one can see living a carefree life with their very respectful human neighbors.

Now, it’s important to be clear about this: living here isn’t for everyone.
It can be perfect if you like a serene feeling year round. If you enjoy meeting people from all over the world. If you love the friendly sunny way only people in tiny places relate with each other. It’s a country-mouse paradise. You don’t have to believe us. Search for Banff on Twitter, and you can find thousands of gorgeous photos that were taken at all seasons – some are of the incredibly beautiful park, some of the unique and fascinating wildlife, and many are of the picturesque peaceful town among the mountains.

Just a small sample

Of course, even if you don’t live here, nothing can stop you from visiting, and it’s very easy to visit when you live in the province.What do you think? Are you charmed? Is this the place for you?
Tell us in the comments what you think about this gorgeous place.
Not your cup of national park? Tell us about your favorite place in Canada.

More of a question, getting work, ok, but getting accommodation, is there a problem?

    The entire process is an effort and not something someone just hands over because you want it.
    This article is less about the act of purchasing a home (which is relatively easier than in many other places), it’s about introducing our readers to places in Canada they may not know about, or only heard a little bit about.
    It’s meant to give our readers more options and ideas about places to reside or even just visit.

I’m doubting about this so much because of fake posting on media lines I don’t know how true is it for helping people for immigration to Canada?

    Hi!
    It’s not an easy question. How do you know who to trust these days, right?
    I won’t try to convince you because I work for this company, so why should you trust me?
    I would suggest (with all companies – not just us) to do your research.
    Look for genuine reviews online. Remember that every company gets negative reviews – even the best of them – because people often get angry at things that don’t relate to the service and posting a negative review is an easy way to let off steam.
    Then look for things that look genuine to you. I believe with us – you will discover what many people have – that our service is professional, informed and dedicated.
    The rest is really a gamble and a lot of hope.
    So I hope you’ll decide to go with us. If you do, the easiest way to sign up is here.
    Good luck!

I have tried to apply for higher education and residence in Canada all I got was a question of €400 for registration to be paid at Denmark and €5000 for the whole process. If this is how you reply someone who dreams to be in Canada as well as love the country with passion I would rather prefer not to come.

Reply

    Violet Mitchell

    Hi!
    I’m sorry you feel that way.
    You seem to be under the misconception that the service would be free.
    Please allow me to clarify something: this is a private company, not any kind of charity organization nor part of the Canadian government.
    Our professionals (advisers, barristers, and even content writers – me included) don’t work for free. Like you and everyone else we have bills to pay and families to feed, and we expect to get paid for our work.
    So indeed no, the service isn’t free. I hope that helped clarify the confusion.
    If you do choose to try the process – I wish you a fast and easy one.
    Best of luck!

So i have three kids am kinda a single mom, recently defended my PhD and thinking what Canada can offer me based on my qualification.

Reply

    Violet Mitchell

    I’d say quite a lot!
    A PhD would definitely put you far ahead in the HCS points. I can’t guarantee anything because ultimately it isn’t my decision, but undoubtedly you’d be a preferred candidate.
    Beyond that, it’s a question of what you studied, where you studied, where you’d like to settle in Canada, etc.
    If you’d like help with your process, please don’t hesitate to sign up here.
    Good luck!

    The process takes 6 months to 2 years. However, some people take longer to collect all the required documents, and study for IELTS etc. So you can decide when the best time is for you based on that.

Although for family reasons I need to be in the Niagara Peninsula I am open now to visiting many parts of Canada, but apart from Niagara I would be more interested in East coast. What are the logistics of living and working in Canada as a travel writer? I have booked my next visit from December to February, but would love to stay longer if it were possible.
