I've been thought about this idea, but cannot decide.
So I would like to ask you guys a few things.
The biggest concern I have is if I could have a stable living.
I am not afraid to move to other countries or continent because I already did once.
Any input will be appreciated greatly.  Kiss

it depends on what you want to move for, Australia is a lovely country but very remote, so if you have family and frends on the other side of the world and you are here alone you may feel isolated.

I think it is still reasonalbly affordable depending on where you live, the eastern seaboard is more expensive as is the west but the dancing is much stronger. Cant speak about Canada as I have never been there. Tongue do hope to get here one day.

Canada, like the states, is a very BIG country.  The difference is that a) it has very few people (less than 30 mil) and b) most of its land is uninhabitable, making it a rather odd country that is mostly a line, rather than an area...  (but maybe global warming will change that).

The best thing we have going for us is the weather.  Make no mistake there are very cold places in Canada and we play them up as much as possible to stop the Statsians from discovering that Toronto really has about the same climate as NY (not kidding, maybe 3o C colder on average - but 30o better at dealing with it Smiley ).  Its very livable and if you have a slightly left of centre philosopy (read: taxes do good for people that can't support themselves) you can actually love the place.  Best of all is the cultural diversity - the idea here is not to 'become Canadian' as it is in the states, but to retain your culture here.  This does create some problems but it has generated an incredible diversity in a very short period of time.

I lived in the Baltimore/Washington area for 23 years - but felt I came home the day after I arrived in Toronto... Love it.

And don't forget we have free health care in Canada once you are a citizen.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

you don't have to be a citizen!  You just have to live here legally for a month...

Australia's pretty cool.

I may be a little bit biased, though.

I have no family in the US. My parents are in my country. So I've been living by myself since I arrived at this country. So yes, I already know how I will be lonely. lol.....
But, I have friends and dance teachers. I will miss them a lot if I leave the US.  Undecided

Yes - but note we also pay taxes, willingly.  Canadians are prepared to pay more taxes as long as the money is used for the common good.  Its a concept that seems to be almost extinguished in the states.

Lots of factors - most of which would have to be in a very private letter!  However, a main one was a great job opporotunity in Toronto.
