She is the one who has to find out where there are opportunities for her to get a good job and advance her career. The location, sadly, will have to be secondary I think.

She should do the research and see what's out there--that will be the challenge.

Why has she excluded Australia and New Zealand?

Britain has a warmer climate than Canada--has she thought about that?

I was stumped as to what to suggest.
Any ideas?
India.

But methinks she will probably not go there, and if she does, I would strongly suggest visiting first.

OK, she doesn't want cold weather, but wants English speaking. So she crosses off the USA, Canada, Australia, and NZ. English wise, that pretty much leaves S. Africa, Great Britain, Ireland, Belize, India, and Guyana that I know of. Not sure of the weather in these places, but know a few have a lot more moderate winter temps compared to Canada.

Most of eastern Australia from Sydney north doesn't really have cold weather. Based on her criteria, I certainly would keep Queensland in play. The northern half of Queensland is rather tropical actually. Darwin in the Northern Territories is also tropical. The north island of NZ is quite temperate year round. It generally gets neither too hot nor too cold.

Similarly, to cross of the entire USA is too broad, too. Places like Florida, south Texas, Arizona, southern California and Hawaii would offer up warm weather and English. Some of the Pacific Islands might also bear consideration: Guam, Fiji, etc...

Good morning jambo101:

The Republic of Panama presents a wonderful retired lifestyle with secure living and state of the art health care. Modern accommodations, free of natural disasters, a broad array of cuisine choices, fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, low prices on spirits, wine and beer. Panama supports an active expat community, plenty things to do including golf, tennis, fishing, surfing sports events and discount prices for retirees. Maybe you haven’t included Panama as one of your choices as a place to move or retire, but Panama is your best choice. Please let me show you why...You are More Than Welcome in Panama: Unlike some other countries, Panamanians love foreigners! They have a deep-seated respect for all nationalities and especially older people. They prove that by giving “pensionado” discounts, you will get a photo ID that puts you at the head of any line and saves you money every step of the way. There’s no racism here. Panamanians are a bouquet of colors and regardless of who you are or were, you are treated with respect, good manners and courtesy.

Anytime you're in Panama you're not far from the beach: The Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean are four hours of distance from each other, Caribbean Sea trace the majority of the country's borders, and much of that distance includes a gorgeous margin of white sand. Not far from Panama City is Playa San Carlos, where sunshine, surfing, diving, snorkeling, and sailing await you. For a remote escapade, retreat to Contadora Island. Or if you're eager to explore the Caribbean shoreline, start with San Blas or Bocas del Toro. You'll quickly discover that this sampling of sandy destinations is only a fraction of Panama's expansive list. Temperatures in Panama have little variation. Overnight lows are reliably in the 70's, and daytime highs reach into the upper 80's, rarely peaking above 90 degrees. Most of Panama's rain falls during the rainy season, which typically runs from April to December. And while thunder and rain can be commonplace, Panama lies outside of the Caribbean's hurricane belt, so violent storms are of no concern. Besides she can get a job in The Panama Canal or Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute, send me an e-mail to ED22JR3@hotmail.com if you need more info!

Best regards,

ED22JR3

She's been to both countries several times and she isnt too keen on returning.
As my family lives in Florida she's spent much time traveling between Montreal and Florida, she's wanting something a bit more culturally diverse.
She's been on several cruises to the Caribbean and central America and once out of the general tourist areas she finds much poverty and 3rd world atmosphere.
She is now expanded her criteria to take into account her bilingualism (French/English) and is being drawn to the northern Mediterranean area.
