About This Quiz

Do you know a loonie from a toonie? Any idea what a chinook is? And what the heck is poutine, anyway? If you're thinking of moving to Canada, you have to be prepared to answer these questions if you want to fit in with your new neighbors. Think you've got what it takes? Take our quiz to find out!

So you think the grass is greener on the other side of the border, eh? Every U.S. Presidential election brings out a swarm of voters who swear they are leaving the country if their preferred candidate doesn't win. While some want to get as far away as possible, others head just across the border to Canada, one of the closest U.S. neighbors. 

There's lots of reasons Canada is a smart choice for American ex-pats. One of the biggest is that it isn't all that different from the U.S.; sure, they have a Prime Minister instead of a President and provinces instead of states, but culturally it's fairly similar -- and many Canadians speak English, so you don't even have to learn a new language.

On top of that there's plenty of natural beauty and strong safety nets, including universal healthcare. Best of all, it's fairly easy for skilled U.S. workers to make the leap, though it does require some time and effort.

Convinced you've got what it takes to move to Canada? Take our quiz and find out whether you'll soon be picking up your morning coffee at Tim Horton's instead of your local coffee shop!
