Oh thank goodness, I was beginning to think there weren't any Canadians on mumsnet.

We are emigrating (hopefully) to either Toronto or Vancouver later this year and I was just wondering initially whether there was such a thing as a Canadian mumsnet so I can chat to people there and ask about school and stuff and lurk and read their threads.

Desparately want to fit in when I get there.

Any suggestions?

when i left canada i was but a mere slip of a girl with no thoughts of children in my empty head. I will ask some canadian mum friends + get back to you.

If you have a choice, go for Vancouver. Toronto may be the centre of the universe grin but Vancouver has better weather and friendlier people.

Am in the same position as chibi as I left pre-baby days. Will ask some Canadian mom friends & get back to you too....

Both cities are great. Have only visited Vancouver once (as I'm from Toronto grin) & really enjoyed it. They each have their pros & cons!

I also grew up in Canada.

Have been here for donkey's yrs now though,all my family still live there.

Vancouver weather much nicer imo.But it is expensive to buy property there.
