Canadians of /int/.
I'm going to study in Canada.
The question is - where?
My program is Welding foundation Certificate.
I can choose between the following locations:
Saint John NB
Ottawa or Toronto
Which one would you recommend? - oh, I purposefully left out anywhere in Alberta because they are not accepting international students for this field there atm.
If you want to do nothing but go to the bar and drink with your time off, go to Saint John.
If you want to see the mountains and be able to experience a more outdoors type of lifestyle, go to Victoria.
If you want to live literally in the middle of nowhere, go to Regina.
If you want to experience a genuine North American big city, go to Toronto.
Don't go to Ottawa, you'll have a better time anywhere else on your list, even Regina.
ignore this "canadian"
>Saint John NB
folks are very friendly and relaxed
boring area and people, live there for strictly business and everyone is trying to move away
>Ottawa or Toronto
ottawa is shit, toronto is very urban and fun
pick toronto or victoria, i'd go with victoria since you get a good mix of urban life and rural life and are a 1hr ferry away from vancouver
>if you want to do nothing but go to the bar and drink with your time off, go to Saint John
Do you mean that there are no jobs there or that for a young person there is nothing to do? All I care about initially is having a job DESU.
Also - What's the problem with Ottawa?

It's a no fun allowed city, just filled with business and politicians. I agree with the anon above, your best luck is Victoria or Toronto; being a residents of Vancouver I can tell you Victoria is very beautiful, rural and nice, but it's pretty boring pass that. You can take a ferry to Vancouver but it's not as convenient as you think.
Ottawa isn't a bad city, it pretty comfy place to live though it is rather boring and winter is pretty awful here, but the college here called Algonquin is pretty good and the neighborhood around it is nice.
that's the college I'd go to if I chose Ottawa
I understand Welding probably isn't the hottest shit around in Toronto, I was just looking for opinions on whether it's ''doable'' or my only option is moving to Alberta afterwards.
Ottawa is fun to visit but it's pretty boring to live in. That's why most people talk shit about it.
I'd go with Victoria or Toronto, depending if you want to do outdoors shit or not. Toronto has tons to do. Hope you have fun m8.
Whatever you do though do not pick St. Johns.
Saint John is a beautiful small city with a vibrant cultural life. Maritimers are less accustomed to foreigners than people in other parts of the country, people will want to be your friend to learn about Brazilian people and culture.
It's very much a working-class city, but with a rich elite, the Irving and McCain families. They essentially run the rest of the province from there. The Irvings own all of the province's newspapers and non-state media, as well as most of the manufacturing and natural resources. As shitty as the Irvings are, living in SJ will put you in close contact with a company with near-dictatorial level of political control which is also constantly in need of skilled labourers.
