Hi all! I hope everyone's 2020 is going well so far. With my PR application busy processing, I've been debating where to move to later this year. I thought perhaps some of you wise folk could offer me some advice. I just want to preface by saying that I don't really mind things like weather, activities/entertainment, etc. at this point. I'm more concerned about finding work in my field (and affording housing). I can figure the rest out, or resettle, at a later stage. Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge-Guelph-Hamilton vs Edmonton/Calgary As you can see, after much research online, I'm trying to decide between the Kitchener region of Ontario or moving to one of the major Albertan cities. These are my options as they seem sizable, but don't have the extravagant property prices of the likes of Toronto or Vancouver. I have 4 years of full-time marketing experience, as well as a business science master's degree. In my field, as a marketing coordinator/specialist/assistant, I can fortunately work at a variety of companies in various industries. I could also work as an administrative assistant, executive assistant, office manager, etc. So, that's my summary. Which would you recommend for ease of finding work? Kitchener area or one of the Alberta cities? Or somewhere I've not yet considered?
