How do Canadians generally feel about the British living, working etc in Canada? (I am thinking more of Vancouver/Alberta area but all area answers welcome). Has anyone had any difficulties or has it been OK? If you have a UK driving licence do you know what you have to do to be able to drive in Canada? What other things should British people think about (big or little things) if they were to move to Canada. All answers welcome. Thanks.

I'd be very surprised if you ran into any problems socially. Canada still has a fair-sized UK-origin population and I doubt an English accent would even cause a raised eyebrow.

Driving licences are under provincial jusidiction, so standards may vary from province to province, but I think it most likely that your UK licence would be accepted as proof of competence. Most provinces will require you to switch your UK licence for a Canadian one within 30 days of establishing residence.

In Ontario, my American wife merely drove over to the Department of Motor Vehicles, handed her Oregon licence across the counter, and put her new Ontario permit in he purse.
