The New York Times once speculated that “the American Dream has swapped citizenship, for now, it is more likely to be found in Canada”.
The NYT has a strong point, or rather - several points. The Canadians seemingly enjoy a significantly higher standard of living and a better lifestyle than people in the U.S. According to data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Canadians live longer and work on average 4.6 % less hours than their southern neighbors.
Many people are now looking to build a new, happier life in Canada. So how good life really is in the land of a maple leaf?
