Hi everybody! I will be moving in Norwalk CT in few months while my partner will be relocated somewhere in Canada.

Do you have any suggestion on where to be relocated in Canada? We'd love the closest city to the borders. Ontario area or Montreal?

Many thanks for helping us

Montreal is probably the closest major Canadian city to Norwalk at 6 hours away.

Montreal is closer but if you prefer a primarily an English speaking community, Ottawa would be the better option. A farther commute to Norwalk for sure.

Sherbrooke is techincally, the closest metro area to Norwalk.
But it's not that bilingual, like Montreal anyway.

Since Connecticut doesn't border Canada, as you can see in this map
Map of Connecticut, Connecticut Map
and Norwalk is at the southern end of Connecticut, you'll have to go north through the state of CT and whatever other state is between CT and your focus Canada city.

This map is also helpful -- it's a PDF; where it says 82.2% click on the down arrow and select 150% or more to see all the details clearly.

This map shows the relationship between Montreal or Toronto and New York City (near Norwalk in this scale) --
Map of North America

Mapquest.com is really helpful. And you can Google for any map you want.

I want to order something from Walmart Store in Canada, that they don't sell here in the U.S.. What would be the closest city to order from? and can they speak English?

Where do you live in the States?

You will only encounter non-English speaking store staff in the province of Quebec. The rest of the country is predominantly English-speaking.

And even in Quebec, any Wal-Mart would have at least some staff members (though not all) who can speak English.

Norwalk CT is just 45 miles from La Guardia - so the OP is essentially asking about the distance from NYC to Canada. Also check out airline fares from Toronto, Ottawa, & Montreal to NYC. I'm not sure which is cheaper or has more frequency. Toronto & then Ottawa will have the most job opportunities.

Toronto - 500 miles
Montreal - 370 miles
Ottawa - 450 miles (500 via Montreal)
