Canada is a country of great natural beauty and it offers much variety to those who wish to explore the land. Here are five uniquely Canadian experiences that every expat must have.

Catch the Northern Lights

The Aurora Borealis is nature’s very own light show in the sky. It is a natural phenomenon that occurs when charged solar particles interact with atoms in the earth’s upper atmosphere.

Please tell us a bit about yourself and your company

I have been a realtor in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, for more than 25 years. To date, my team and I have achieved approximately $2.5 billion dollars in sales, with more than 7,000 homes having been sold. We help families, friends, and clients buy and sell homes—everything from small condos to expansive mansions— throughout the Greater Toronto Area; mainly in Mississauga and nearby areas.
