From my own experience - too cold and too boring. There's about 4+ months of winter, a few weeks of summer, and long times in between where you can do almost nothing.

Maybe a place like Vancouver is something I'd consider, but apart from that - nope.

Stunning landscapes and nature.... but just so far from anywhere else (a bit like NZ?)

some folks i know are over there, and they say its very difficult to get a job which suits your skils and profession, that being said, you can have a very comfortable life doing as simple a profession as being a bus driver or a baker's assistant.

you can have your pictueresque suburban home, a FORD SUV out front, a nice big dog, cookouts often and send all your kids to university while worrying nothing about the future :D

you won't have much savings and investments though, forget about owning second homes and investment properties

Canada is not exactly very far from the US... a few inches across the 49th parallel and there you are..
