When you hear the word ‘Canada’ what comes into your mind? For me it is intertwined with french language, architecture and a whole lot of nature trails. Travelling however made me realise there’s a whole lot more things to do in Canada than what I have expected and even planned for myself. One trip was not enough, I had to keep coming back.

Here are a few of the places I’ve had the chance to visit, and also the reasons why I will be travelling back soon:

  1. Banff National Park

For a nature buff like me, this hits my desire right down to the tiniest detail. It’s serene waters and perfectly line trees with a backdrop of gigantic mountains topped with snow and rock formations. It is too much to digest i just one sitting, I had to sit a good hour just staring and thinking how surreal it felt to be looking over that view. This is a great way to jumpstart your trip to Canada by immersing in hiking, trails, and peaceful lake visits that will leave you breathless and wanting for more.

  1. Old Quebec

If you’re like me, sometimes you’re up for the challenge of climbing rocks and sometimes you’re just feeling too lazy to do anything but walk and eat, then Canada can also provide you with places you can go to that will require less energy but will give a ton of experience. Recognised as a UNESCO world heritage treasure, this part of the country offers a view wonderful architectural views such as old themed parks with fountains, castle like structures, and towering spires.

  1. Niagara Falls

I’m sure you’ve heard of this magnificent waterfall that is within the border of two countries- USA and Canada. It might sound boring, but once you’ve reached the peak and see just how big it actually is, you will be amazed at how long you can tolerate standing there just being in awe.

  1. Drumheller Dinosaur Valley

In the early 1800’s the very first dinosaur was uncovered in this city. It is no surprise that they are still finding some more discoveries and if you’re lucky, then you might be able to see paleontologists at work. Just imagine the view of endless rock formations with dinosaur displays and you’re childhood dreams are achieved. Consider dropping by Tyrell Museum of Paleontology  for that added experience and knowledge.

  1. Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library

Where I live, seeing rare books is a privilege only the rich and connected can achieve. It is no surprise then that the I learned about this library, it was the one on top of my list. This library is housed in the University of Toronto and the general public can actually request to see, touch and study their rare book collection. Publications dating from the 1500’s can be seen in their magnificent collection. If you’re a bookworm like I am, then this will really satisfy that dream of seeing rows and rows of books ready to be discovered.

Canada is such a big country and because of this it has so many different things to offer to every personality. Be sure to do your research before flying, and make sure to maximize your stay in such a beautiful country.…

Work With Brokers

When you work with real estate brokers and property firms, it makes the search easier and in some cases it may save you a little money.

These professionals are not only familiar with the areas, but they will be able to instantly cross off the properties that will not meet your specific needs.


Let Your Friends Know

Most people keep their apartment hunting to themselves. They never thing to tell their friends and family that they are hoping to move in to a new place. By doing this, they miss out on opportunities. Spread the word about your rental search. You should even consider posting an “Apartment Wanted” sign in a local store, yoga studio and even a laundromat. Allow others to come to you with what they know. Let people do a little of the work for you.

Everyone has a list of their perfect requirements, but not everyone is willing to wait to find them. Finding your ideal apartment in Mississauga is not going to be easy.
