and most of all, we aren't bombarded with retardedly over the top advertisements and marketing campaigns that should be enough to drive every American insane... that shit still goes on, but it's much more subtle

actually, if i were to describe the difference between America and Canada, i'd use the word 'subtle'. Canada is subtle America. and considering the state of affairs down south at the moment, that should be a welcome variation.

You are from Canada Ridonks? What part? You are one of the coolest guys on here, I should have put 2 and 2 together. Oh and don't forget that our society is generally freer than the land of the free, and our law enforcement is respectful and more professional for the most part.

So what do Canadian feel in general about outsiders coming to live there....especially from the US?

What's the biggest culture shock for an American/US going there?

Canadians are very welcoming I feel. You won't encounter a lot of arrogance towards outsiders, I am talking to you America and France. If you tell most people you're American they will probably be very interested to know more about what it's like to live there and then explain how things are different in Canada.Of course individuals are different all over, there are good people, bad people and as*holes everywhere but I'm speaking generally.

I think the biggest cultural shock for most young people to be honest will be people's obsession with hockey, long winters and Canadian television. Of course if you have cable or satellite then you still get all of your American channels. In fact majority will be American tv. Another thing you will notice is that people are more assimilated. This might piss off you racists but in most groups of friends half will be white, with the other half being a combination of black, indian, asian and other races. People aren't really separated along racial lines as much basically.

I actually prefer the US over Canada even though logically it really doesnt make much sense on my end.

If I was an outsider and had a month to either visit US or Canada I would pick US 10 times out of 10. I just think if I lived there my quality of life won't be the same. I can't picture myself living their. I have visited California, New York, Arizona, Nevada and Virginia.

And this alien



Unless you've got some nice bank saved or intend on making a fairly handsome salary I would suggest not moving in the heart of downtown Toronto or Vancouver right off the bat. There's plenty of suburbs such as Mississauga, Milton, Brampton where you can find housing for much cheaper then the metropolis regions...
