Are you happy in Canada?

Hello everyone!

According to the 2016 UN World Happiness Survey, Denmark, Switzerland and Iceland are the happiest countries on earth.

How about you? Are you happy in Canada? Do you feel happier today in your host country than before in your home country? What has contributed to the change?

In your opinion, are locals in Canada happy? How can you tell?

Please share your experience!

I'm enjoying the hospitality and the culture but the immigration process is far too complex.

when I stay there for 4 years as tfw I was happy of course life there was easy no stress, work life balance was perfect

I am not happier here than in my host county and that is why we are moving soon. We totally hate  cold and harsh winers, geographical isolation, high taxes and high cost of living. Big deal of annoyance with working condition is a unionization at workplace. At a first glance it seems to be a positive factor yet some parts of collective agreement can negatively affect work-life balance. (particularly, time when you can possibly take vacation). Also, building social circle is not easy at a certain age.
Now, as for locals - it depends. People have good days, bad days and days in between. Certainly, locals are doing well financially and have a confidence in their future. However, they do complain a lot. Like really, A LOT! which makes me questioning whether there are as happy as one might think. I am in Quebec, if it makes any difference.

I released that I made a typo - I meant to say that I am not happy here as compared to the country of origin.

Family oriented is a major plus here as a parent.  Safety comes first, as  violent crimes are on the uprise in other countries.
