I'm from Ontario and tbh it isn't as bad out here as everyone says. It's not a humid cold so it doesn't "stick to your bones" so to speak. It's just worse if you have exposed skin/improper gloves and boots. So as long as you dress warm, wear a balaclava and good boots and gloves, you'll be good.

Thank you very much. I will be sure to ask you about those things before i make the trip. I'm from Toronto. Nice city but its hard to get apprenticeship with a company here. Don't really mind the cold that much. And I know its boring out west, which you should already be accustomed to since you lived in Hamilton lol. But hey, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages by a landslide and I'm ready to take on that challenge. Its good to see that you have that drive at a young age. At that age i still didnt know what I wanted to do in life. But its all good. Very good decision you've chosen. Thank you for your support and I will definitely keep in touch with you.

Cool man, just a heads up. You can do the CPR and first aid through St. Johns Ambulance or Red Cross before you come out and they are recognized here. I also did H2S Alive in Beamsville, Ontario (you can do it in a few other places too) before I came out. It's a little more pricey but if you are looking to be prepared and start work ASAP, you can get some tickets while still on Ontario ground.
