Social Life: You either live in a Townhouse or in a Condonium or an Apartment. Usually people prefer Condo and Town. I won’t suggest a Basement because of the health hazards like minimal sunlight and issues with bugs.
So, most probably you would live in a Condo. The Condo rents have been going higher and higher because the migrants are moving a lot to Canada given the closure of gates in UK, US, Singapore. The market rate for 1BHK in Mississauga has gone up from $1.5K per month to $1.8K per month in just two years.
The Social Life in Canada is ‘planned’. Condo people usually move to Town after an year or so, so you don’t get to make friends living in a Condo. Mississauga is full of immigrants which is a floating population hence creating bonds isn’t easy and bonds don’t last long. However you get to see more people in Condo.
Living in Towns gets very lonely for an Indian. I won’t suggest Brampton as it is not a very safe neighbourhood, although most of Indians stay there. More of the IT immigrants end up buying a Townhouse in Milton or Hamilton area. Few friends who came to meet me in the Condo after living for a while in Town said they are seeing a lot of life after a long time.
It is important that even during winters your family goes to YMCA or Public Library every alternate days otherwise they would feel sealed. Going for a walk is not an option of course. One should wear good shoes/boots if going on a walk as the cold starts affecting the feet slowly and if there are any damages, they can be irreversible.
Health: I have written in another answer about this. The Sun is not in abundance in Winters and even in Summers the thin Ozone layer can create a lot of prickly on the skin. I have felt that the body nutrients get depleted quicker in less Sun and cold. Hence one should always take Vitamin D supplements, Vitamin B12 supplements, occasional Iron pill, Calcium, etc.
Buying shades (goggles) isn’t an option here, you should buy to protect your eyes. Most probably it would be covered in your insurance as well, so do go for them.
Due to the internal heating, the atmosphere inside the house/condo becomes very dry which may lead to nose bleed. Don’t panic, that’s very common. You should buy a couple of good humidifiers (cold mist ones) to maintain the humidity but clean them regularly.
Brita water filters are very popular here as sometimes there are a few heavy minerals dissolved in the tap water. I would recommend them. Also, don’t drink the hot water, better drink the cold water (after keeping it to be warm for some time). There are more things dissolved in the hot water.
Also, there might be hair loss because of the hard water so buy inline filters which are available in ebay worldwide.
Work: The economic base of Canada is smaller compared to that of USA and the startup mania is not like that in Pune/Bangalore. Hence the job opportunities are comparatively lesser and the salaries are lower compared to that in USA. However the healthcare is free and school education is free (okay, there are private schools as well) so the savings can be a little equivalent.
I have observed and many people told me that there is a lack of innovation in Canada. The new technologies are not adapted quickly enough and if things are working, they are kept just like that. Hence, it can get a bit of boring if you are coming from the Silicon Valley
