Canada Is a Great Place to Live
Canada is a great country to live in as an HR Manager. The major cities in the country (i.e. Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary) rate towards the top of the most livable cities in the world. There are a number of reasons for this.
For one thing, the people are generally friendly, there is lots of open space and many of the cities are filled with large parks. Canada’s larger cities have more parks than a lot of other large cities around the world, due to the abundance of space. Calgary has even been voted as the cleanest city in the world.
Also, there are plenty of outdoor activities to do very near the major cities. For instance, Calgary is just an hour’s drive from the Rocky Mountains. Vancouver also sits very near the spectacular North Shore Mountains, and the Cascades to the south. If you are into the outdoors, Canada has a lot to offer.
