In the midst of the pandemic, many people found themselves daydreaming about moving away from the city and opting for a simpler way of life. For some this meant moving within their country for others this was looking further afield. We started daydreaming about starting a new life overseas, and somehow our thoughts turned to Canada.

Canada is home to some of the most breathtaking scenery in all of North America, which is good news if you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and slow things down a bit. Here are some of the best places to live in Canada if you love the great outdoors and want to get a little closer to nature.


Banff, Alberta

Banff is truly one of the most beautiful towns in all of Canada, possibly even the world. It’s home to some incredible natural wonders, like Banff National Park, which has consistently been recognized as one of North America’s must-visit national parks. Banff is also a wildly popular resort town, as it is home to not one, not two, but THREE ski resorts—Banff Sunshine, Lake Louise Ski Resort, and Mount Norquay. 

You might think that these popular attractions mean Banff is overrun with tourists year round, especially during the popular winter months, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. There is enough land in Banff to spread out and live on several private acres if you want even more privacy. If you love skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing, start checking out some Banff homes for sale right now.

Victoria-by-the-Sea, Prince Edward Island

Victoria-by-the-Sea is a quaint coastal town that looks like it was pulled straight out of a fairytale. It’s a historic fishing village that now tends to attract a more artistic crowd, but it hasn’t lost that rich, historic feel that made it so charming in the first place. One of the most notable landmarks in Victoria-by-the-Sea is the Victoria Seaport Lighthouse Museum, which overlooks the water and makes for a peaceful day out. If you love spending time by the water and participating in activities such as kayaking, fishing, or even just enjoying a delicious lobster dinner with your family, Victoria-by-the-Sea is a great option to consider when planning your next big move.  

Niagara Falls, Ontario

You might think Niagara Falls is overrated, but think again. This natural wonder is not only one of the most visited tourist attractions in the world, but it is also one of the most incredible natural landmarks on earth. Niagara Falls refers to a group of three waterfalls situated at the southern end of the Niagara Gorge—Horseshoe Falls (also known as the Canadian Falls), American Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls. The beauty of the three waterfalls is undeniable, and something you truly have to see to believe. Niagara Falls is also home to a quaint downtown area, which is convenient if you decide to move to one of its many neighbourhoods, as you’ll be able to go into town for food and shopping.
