Canadians making the move. The move from small town to big town.

Canadians making the move.

The move from small town to big town.

That is happening more frequently.

But why are more and more Canadians making the move?

The reasons vary.

Small town living makes you happier.

The hustle and bustle of the big city.

The tranquility and serenity of small towns and rural areas.

Which do you prefer?

And there is a certain irony in that question.

All factors point to the world’s population moving to the major urban areas.

The trend to moving and living in the big cities began in earnest about 20 years ago.

Couples who lived in the suburbs often upon retiring moved into the big cities.

Big cities also offer more opportunities when it comes to jobs.

In 12 years from now  there will be 43 mega cities in the world – cities with populations of more than 10 million, up from 33 cities today and just 10 in 190.

Today, 55 per cent of the world’s population lives in urban area.
And that percentage will rise to 68 per cent by 2050 – meaning an additional 2.5 billion people will be new residents in big cities.
But despite that living in small cities and rural areas has a great appeal to people.
So why not find out why Canadians are making the move from big town to small town.
Here is what some people are saying why they are making the move.
“There are a lot of things that I gained that I wouldn’t have necessarily had living in the city. After supper we go into the front yard and the kids go swim in the river and run around the property. We have 3.5 acres. We can just let them run loose and we don’t have to worry in the least, we live on a quiet back road. The childhood we’re able to provide for our kids in this setting is something really magical.”
