Where is everyone from? Do you enjoy living in Canada? Do we have any transplants from other countries?

I was born and raised here in Alberta, and I can't imagine living anywhere else. (How narrow-minded of me :rolleyes: ) I just thought it would be neat to get an idea of where everyone is...and even neater if we had members in every province and territory!

My family moved around a lot, but I think of myself as being from Calgary. Fun to meet another Albertan, AheeK! What part of Alberta are you from?

I grew up just outside Grande Prairie, but now I'm living about an hour outside Edmonton. My brother lives in Calgary with his family. Every time I visit them I grumble about how all the roads have similar names...at least in Edmonton the streets are numbered! :D

Charlene, I'm so jealous! L.M. Montgomery is my favorite author and I desperately want to see PEI. Is it as beautiful as everyone says?

I live in Calgary, but I am from the States (Florida, NYC). I am still an American at heart and miss it. DH wants to attend seminary, so we are talking about moving back. Plus Calgary is sooo expensive now. :dis:

I'm in Medicine Hat, Alberta and have been here for 10 yrs. But I was raised in northern BC and I miss it alot. Alberta is a beautiful place too, but it feels so different. In BC I was surrounded by mountains and trees and was walking distance to the ocean.

Hi All Canadians, I was born and raised in Calgary Alberta, but now I have resided to Edmonton I have been here for the last 6 months. It's great to see that there are others on this website trying to accomplish the same goals which is fantastic. Since I have moved It seems how I have changed my priorities drastically, compared to how I used to be wanting clothes and other items that really didn't matter now I am much happier with less considering I am going back to school in May which in fact I am quite excited about.:wave:

Hi...I am in Southern Ontario....originally from Northern Ontario. I still have family up there so go back frequently. I like where I am. I am glad that we are meeting each other. I tell you I get jealous of all the coupon talk on this site....we don't seem to get those kind of deals here - just the occassional coupon here and there....and certainly no triple coupon days at my grocery store. Nice to meet all of you eh!!!!

Aheek, sure is!!!
I get a great kick out of the tourist when i see them, i tell them bring dark clothes and good quality laundry detergent. lol Red soil is hard to get out.
But then we have PEI shirts in Cavendish(where LM Montgomery lived). theyre made in PEI soil, red dirt ones with our logo. lol
I sold my house 2 years ago , lived right across from the beach. If it wasnt for my family near by, i would of stayed and made it work out. Miss that part. But i still live 2 minutes away from the shore even when u live in town. lol

Can't get much further East than here in Nova Scotia! :wave: I'm a Maritimer, born, raised and still residing. I guess I'm okay with living in Canada -- I have never lived anywhere other than Nova Scotia, so I really don't know what is the difference. I think that, eventually, :smooch: and I will move around a bit more, but for now it looks like we'll be here a few more years.
