What's the best part of raising a family in Canada?

For me the best part of raising a family in Canada is our health care system. In Utero my youngest was diagnosed with having a enlarged kidney. This led to many ultrasounds, doctors appointments, hospital visits and medication for him. I am so thankful that we have such a great system where all of his needs were taken care of and he received top notch care regardless of our financial situation.

What's the biggest misconception people have about raising a family in Canada?

The biggest Misconception. That is a tough one. I would have to say In my experience is that people tend to think Canada is very cold and it snows all the time and people wonder how we can adapt. No it only rains quite often where I am from ;)

What do your kids love most about living in Canada?

My sons are quite young yet so they dont have an opinion but I know they would appreciate the mild weather , being able to play outside year round and having the mountains in our backyard. We are so very lucky to be living here.
