Default living and working

I'm in the UK and in my forties. My work experience to date, since my mid
twenties, includes time in the Printing industry, ecommerce and the telecoms
industry. The latter fell off a cliff three years ago and hasn't recovered.
I was made redundant from it, along with many thousands of others.

As a result, I have retuned to University to train in something completely
different...Natural Resource Management and Sustainable Development at
Masters Degree level, my second Masters, the first being an IT related
subject (multimedia). (although I have no first degree)

How do I define myself? As a person of experience in the things I've been
doing or a person qualified in my new area? And are these skills wanted in
Canada?

Is having two young children deemed a good thing or bad?

What is the work culture in Canada? In the UK it's work all hours but have 5
weeks hols a year. The US seems to have two weeks hols a year. Australia is
work hard, play hard..etc.

What sort of house would I get for the equivalent of, say 100k pound
sterling in BC?

Sorry, didn't mean to end up asking lots of questions, just one but help
much appreciated.
