I am planning to move to Canada for good in 2009.
I haven't decided which city yet, but so far i am tossing
between calgary, winnipeg and montreal. <------ I love cold weather

My plan so far is to come to Canada with the one year working holiday visa
and then work out things from there on how to stay and get residency.

I would complete the immigration application and wait patiently, but i have heard too many negative stories of people waiting years to be contacted only to be told that their application has been rejected.....

What do you think i should do? Any advice is appreciated
Also it would be nice to know the pros and cons of each city in
Canada so that i can make a good decision when i choose where
i want to live.

Check out this site for more information: Going to Canada

Having never lived in Calgary, Winnipeg or Montreal, I am afraid I can't really comment. If I had to choose between the three, I'd pick Montreal. Calgary is too new and is growing too fast. The urban sprawl is a problem and the housing market has gone through the roof because the economy is booming there. Of course, job prospects might be better there for you.

I think your best bet would be to visit first to see how you like it. Come in winter!

Especially coming from Australia, if you haven't spent winter here yet, then come and try it out and see if it is for you. Winnipeg can get extremely cold in the winter time. Montreal and Calgary, less, still different climates though.
