Sorry to break it to you Greg, but the property part may be a little iffy these days with Canada. Though if good fishing is your thing that may not be that much of a problem.

"Moving to Canada certain is(although for me, always has been) appealing. Give me hockey, fishing, and some property, and all is well in my world."

Send you a ticket but the border is closed right now. :) And there is still some great property buys around, you just have to look - but you need get here before it is too late. We still welcome immigration though.

Cities or rural? I drove to Montreal a few years ago with some friends and 90% of the Canada I saw looked like middle America. Ive always thought Newfoundland to be gorgeous as well, and the few vacation properties Ive looked at seemed quite cheap. I'm not a savage, so Im not talking 5000 sq ft on an acre in BC. But 2500 sq ft and an acre near a lake in a semi rural area is more than plenty to raise a couple kids and in many places sub $500k. Regardless of where I live, I have no desire to be in a city. Ideally 45-90 minutes outside of one.

And yea, from what Ive heard fishing is nuts. A monster walleye here in NJ is 7 lbs. Average at places like Hawk Lake is 12... Same for pike, muskie, trout.

Yeah, fishing can be great!

But 45-90 minutes outside a city, 2500 sqft on an acre is kinda wishful thinking. Maybe in Newfoundland though I'm not really sure if there really are cities in Newfoundland. Nova Scotia if you're lucky. Don't get me wrong, both of those places are unbelievably beautiful. But strictly speaking, Newfoundland is kinda like our Alabama, and 500K for an acre in rural Alabama on which you cannot grow anything would be nuts.

Then you also have those Newfoundland winters. Think this:
