Default Advice Needed Please!

Hi I am looking to emigrate to either New Zealand, Canada or Australia with my mum who is a registered nurse (50), and my brother who is 17 and will be looking to go to university out there. I am 21 and will be able (hopefully) to get on a family visa as I'll be applying to do my teaching certificate in either country.
I am looking for advice, on behalf of my mum, on which country you feel we would be better off in, as I know the wages are better in Australia but the extreme heat and lots of insects are abit of a put off..where as NZ has lower pay/taxes etc and Canada is beautiful but cold, but also very acessible to the USA etc. So any advice on which country(s) for nursing/teaching would be really helpful as we need to make a choice asap!

Cheers x

Hi there Abster21

I've never been to NZ or OZ so can't really compare but there is a great wiki
article that may help.

I'm sure once a people in Canada wake up you'll get a few more replies

I lived in Canada for just over 8 years. It's not a bad place but I just prefer little old NI and luckily so does my Canadian OH. It's difficult for me to list the pro's and con's because there really isn't much I miss about Canada but I'm still glad I had the experience and did it when I was young and had nothing to loose.
