    As far as where to live.. I'd choose Simon Fraser in Vancouver or Concordia in Montreal. Two fabulously different cities in different areas of the country.

    Thunder Bay, small small city uggghhh . Too far away from everywhere you'll feel like you're very isolated and the winters can be harsh, the summers nice

    Newfoundland has its charms but it's a small city as well with unpredictable weather and very isolated as well.

    Windsor is right across the river from Detroit. You don't want to live in Windsor without having a car . Summers are hot and humid, winters aren't that bad. I can't think of much positive to say about Windsor and I only live 60 miles away, never go there much.

    it's between Concordia and Simon Fraser. Ignore the other options. While they're good school, they aren't really close enough to anything else to make for an interesting year abroad.

    Both SF and ConU are good schools, and in amazing cities.

    I'd have to agree with these guys based on your choices. Never been to Vancouver myself, but I've heard so many good things. The only downside is that it's fairly expensive relative to other Canadian cities. Montreal I've been to once and loved. I've also heard they have a good LGBT scene, if that's your thing.

    Thunder Bay is on your radar?! Don't do it - it's small and isolated...

    Both Montreal and Vancouver are great Cities. I'm from SK so I'm partial to the West but visited Montreal for the first time this summer and had a blast. Each part of Canada has it's own climate so we can't really advise on that until you know where to go.

    That being said, based on my limited experiences in the two cities Vancouver is more multicultural, where as Montreal has more of a unique city culture of it's own. I also think Montreal will give you more options to experience more of Canada. you're a lot closer to the Maratimes, only 2 hours from the capital Ottawa, and you'll be around bilingual people all the time.

    Either city will be an amazing experience for you so you can't go wrong! Good luck and I'm sure you'll have fun...there's no doot aboot it, eh?

    Windsor has a really unique setup, actually. My boyfriends brother went there for law. Due to their partnership with a university in Detroit, he was able to get a dual law degree in both countries in the same time period. Great opportunity.

    Being a Montreal guy myself, I'd say Montreal. While Vancouver is great, there is something about this city that makes it a very interesting place to live. Concordia is a good university and you have McGill there as well depending on your program. I went to Laval and UQÀM, but know a lot of people who went to Concordia and loved it.
