Granted, the cities in Atlantic Canada are older so the downtowns tend to be a lot denser than on the Prairies, but on the outskirts there are probably even more recent low-density suburban areas in Atlantic Canada than on the Prairies these days.
That's right. I still have much to learn about the regions of Canada, but overall it looks like these low-density suburbs are mostly common in the east, including Quebec.

This is a suburb near Saint-Jerome, north of Montreal:

That would be very atypical here in the Prairies, where suburbs tend to be denser, like this one:

At one time I would say Vaughan, Markham or Richmond hill but there is lot more traffic now and lot of high rise condos popping up now.

London Ontario has way too many high rise residential and the density in Brampton is too high now and Mississauga does not feel like a suburb at all.

Toronto is more like New York and the density in Vancouver is very very high and lots of high rise residential.

I hear Calgary or Edmonton is closer with most of the high rise apartments and high rise condos in the down town area and low density sprawl out of the down town area.

I hear waterloo and Kitchener has a number of high rise apartments and high rise condos and also some dense areas.

Hamilton has number of high rise apartments and dense areas.

May be Barrie or Windsor? May be Winnipeg or Brandon?

If there is no city really like that what city or small community is the closest to it?
I wouldn't say Toronto is as dense as Manhattan.

I hear Oshawa and Whitby have more of a suburb feel to it and less apartments and condos than say waterloo and Kitchener that have lots of apartments and condos and more of a urban feel and older feel to it and more apartments and condos. But the down town area of Oshawa and Whitby is newer and less old and gritty than say waterloo and Kitchener.

But I hear the hospitals are better in waterloo and Kitchener and more hospitals in the waterloo and Kitchener area. Where as any thing serious or complex in Oshawa and Whitby they send you to Toronto. I also hear there is more traffic in Oshawa and Whitby.
