My wife and I are Canadians by descent, we both have Canadian Dads and American Moms. We are in the process of getting our Certificate Of Canadian Citizenship Certificates. I can transfer with my employer and my Wife is in the Medical Field. Our daughter will be 15 when we move.

What areas would you recomend ?

We do not really want to be in the suberbs and prefer to be near Public Transportation and like to walk.

Some relatively inexpensive areas which are less than a 5 minute walk from a subway.

Why?

I have had it in Las Vegas, I have been here over 15 years and its time to move on. Toronto is more o a normal place and very multi cultural with musuems, theatre and culture. Las Vegas hs no sene of community or culture.

I moved to Toronto from London a decade ago. I fly back to London regularly and as much as I loved London for family, friends and humour; Toronto is better to live in. London is better to just visit. I recommend looking at the beaches in Toronto.
We're contemplating a move to Phoenix (I've heard it's similar to LV) for a job offer. Our biggest con seems to be that Phoenix is not Toronto. *sigh* We're probably not going to do it at this rate.

I never get why people like toronto and I live here, but it can be nice to live quietly, if your in the suburbs. The city is not quite.

Between Bathurst, Younge and Bayview condos or townhouses or singles are the best parts of city transportation and prestiege wise. They are near to the subway and the city tends to run north south if you know what I mean. In Many cases your better off living outside the city for culture reasons. I find the culture of richmond hill in terms of family events are more so than some parts of toronto that are far to suburban in the sense that there are only houses and commercial areas but lack of parks.

If you look on the subway map, the other guy posted between king and bloor are the most convenient parts. Unlike other european cities toronto is spread out, it is hard to get things done without a car even downtown you might want to rent a car for the first little while.

I probably will rent a car, My wife and I are Canadians by Descent, even though we have not lived in Canada, We are considered returning residents not immigrants and thus duty on belongings. We will get rid of much of our stuff as we can before we move to cut moving expenses. I have had it with Las Vegas, I live in a good area of town and we just had a double murder near where I live. This is becoming very common around here.
