can anyone give me info on living in canmore?we have visited many times but would like to know the reality of living there-education(high school),health care etc.and... this will sound really strange, but does anyone know about antique furniture & how it reacts to the dry climate of that part of the rockies? thanks
As far as I'm concerned, it's already over-developed. Not cheap at all, and not a lot in the way of amenities. Health care is great, there's a decent hospital right in town. Education, couldn't say, but it is more of a transient/vacation town, with a small permanent population.

Antiques won't like the lack of humidity at all. Lots of pull back/cracking, especially coming from the lower mainland.

Default Movin' to Canada

It's as if Canada is nothing but Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Calgary. All great cities, to be sure, but Canada is much more. By the way, moving to Calgary for house prices is not wise. A decent bungalow there is approaching a half-million dollars. Is that cheap? Me thinks not. How about considering Halifax, Victoria, Ottawa, even Edmonton or Winnipeg. All offer a great place to live and raise a family and are far more affordable. Victoria is a bit pricey, I know. I even hear that St. John's, Newfoundland is a nice city with a strong economy and great people. There is more to Canada than the "glamour" cities.
