Hey Aussies, I have been wondering what are the Canadian equivalents of your cities.
Here are the following:

-Toronto
-Montreal
-Vancouver
-Calgary
-Ottawa
-Edmonton
-Halifax
-Winnipeg
-Saskatoon
-Regina
-Quebec City

If you guys know more I would really like it. I know the idea's dumb, but I want to see what you guys think.

I'm not Aussie but I'll give it a shot:

Toronto - Sydney
Melbourne - Montreal
Vancouver and Calgary - Perth (western isolation + minerals)
Ottawa - Canberra
Saskatoon - Alice Springs
Edmonton - Adelaide
Halifax - Hobart

Pretty close, although Brisbane could also be Vancouver, they are more similar in size and look more similar.

Alice Springs is a small city of only about 30,000 so is more like Whitehorse or Yellowknife.

I think perth would be more calgary for sure. Calgary is a city that's become pretty wealthy due its location with vast oil reserves. From what i understant the energy and mineral sector is what keeps perth going. As well as the whole western independance/small s seperation.

Melbourne and Vancouver are long lost twins. Every time I've been to Vancouver I spend a lot of time commenting how it feels like Melbourne.

I don't see this as being just about population size.

It's always been Sydney-Montreal and Melbourne-Toronto for me.

Sydney and Montreal tend to irresponsible, slightly dysfunctional but fun, and care more about doing their own thing as opposed to doing the right thing.

IMO, I think it's something like:

Sydney - Vancouver*
Melbourne - Toronto*
Brisbane - Ottawa*
Adelaide - Edmonton/Winnipeg
Perth - Calgary
Hobart - Halifax

* = These Australian cities I've actually been to before and feel that I can make a valid comparison to what I think is their Canadian counterparts.. the others I just guessed.

I felt that Melbourne and Toronto had an uncanny resemblance to each other to the point that it felt like déjà vu for me.... the trams.... the diverse neighbourhoods... .even the some of the street names of the downtown core were the same.

An interesting comparison. They would be quite similar if Vancouver were much larger (Sydney-sized).
