Due to the persistent economic uncertainty, concerns over Russia’s conflict, and an ever-increasing cost of living, an increasing number of Canadians are delaying or canceling their plans to buy their first home.
However, that doesn’t mean newcomers to Canada are out of options. So long as they abide by Canada’s tax and real estate laws, they can own property within the country.
1. Stunning Natural Landscapes
Are you in search of majestic mountains, snow-capped peaks, icy fjords, shimmering lakes and rainforests? Canada offers plenty of picturesque destinations.
Canada boasts an expansive physical landscape that’s as varied as it is stunning, spanning six time zones from northern Quebec and the Arctic to Vancouver. There’s treeless tundra; sun-nourished grain fields; peach orchards; salty windstorms; polar deserts and ancient footsteps – each with a captivating story to tell.
Earth’s most captivating natural attractions can be found throughout Northern Alberta, such as Tablelands – a bizarre sandstone erosion formation that looks like giant flowerpots and rock mushrooms. Plus there are the majestic hoodoo spires of southern Alberta and Kluane National Park in Yukon for some truly wild views of North America’s glaciers and icefields.
