Free health care, no insurance premiums on health.
Universal benefits , education loans for universities etc. Lets see if we would stick in Nashville or not.
Hopefully YES
We're basically neighbors on the other side of a lake. I'm looking to leave buffalo ny for many of the same reasons. When I'm in Tennessee the air just smells more free. It's wonderful.

I still want a 4 season climate that's why I'm not looking at florida or south Carolina

Re: college education. Tennessee has free tuition at its community colleges for anyone who doesn't already have a college degree, and graduates of Tennessee high schools get very generous scholarships to state universities as long as the students maintain a certain GPA (I think a B). This is all funded by the state lottery.

Yes I totally agree but as on work visa our kids wont be able to take advantage of these benefits. You have to be resident from my understanding. I was comparing for us. Our kids will receive funding in canada as its citizens but not sure how it will work in Usa being on workers visa

There are a lot of locally owned donut places in Nashville that are 1 million times better than Dunkin.

For Community College there may be a difference between being a "resident" in TN but not necessarily a "citizen" of the US?

Default Bring a car from Canada to Toronto

Hi,

Is it a good idea to bring a car from Canada to Nashville? Are cars cheap here. What is usually resale of a used car if its original registration was Canada

In Tennessee, I don't expect that original registration matters. Canada/USA brands anymore are identical. So in TN I wouldn't expet it matters where the car was registered. Of course, that's if the car doesn't have tons of rust beneath the surface and/or anything unique to damage in very cold climates. And if you intend to drive the car several more years, then why should it matter? Used to live in Michigan, and we bought cars all the time that were originally sold in Ontario. We never made a distinction. I doubt folks in TN have any qualms about where the car was from. I have noticed that here the 'car guys' are especially astute and know what to look for in a pre-owned vehicle. And they'll jump at any chance to deduct the value. Had a BMW once that had a quirky AC system as designed (if you know about the mid-1990 5 series). The guy I was trading with said he'd need to dock me for the AC that 'doesn't work'. I said it does and had to show him how to turn it on... frigid air came out in the middle of February. He said it's cold outside. I said, "leave it on in the garage for an hour. Your b#lls will fall off from the cold." He took me at my word. I guess he didn't want to prove I was right. LOL

You will need a smog test to get car registered in TN. Most cars/brands should have the same pollution equipment & meet safety standards. Your dealer will know best. One little difference is converting to Miles from Kilometers. Most cars should have easy conversion of KPH to MPH. There's no Highway 401 to do 100 speed limit here.
