Re: Anyone working in IT/Financial services in Halifax area?

Fire away with questions. Happy to help. Lasted 11 months in the UK in 2015, now settled back by the lake in Mississauga.

Thank you!

Re: Working remotely in the UK for a Canadian corporation - taxes

Thanks for your reply. Sorry for the terminology confusion. Yes, I'm a shareholder and Director.
I will dig into the potential deductions the Canadian employer might have to take then.
The plan is...

Working remotely in the UK for a Canadian corporation - taxes

Re: Can't abide Canadian word?

"Bring".
So simple, yet used incorrectly all the time.
"Bring this home with you", "bring my friend to the cottage"...
Aaaaaahhh, it's "TAKE" goddammit!!!!

Re: 9 year Canniversary.... Heading home :-)

I'm actually quite surprised at how many people are thinking about going back. I guess once you've moved about a bit it's fairly easy to it one more time.

Gurkha Square= yum!

Re: 9 year Canniversary.... Heading home :-)

Thanks all. Heading to Hampshire, probably Fleet.

It's hubby who might kick off the Gardiner massacre! Down to two lanes with construction, plus a conked out truck reducing it to one = 2.5 hour...

Long time, no see. Just hit the 9 year mark, but heading home as soon as the house has sold.

Re: Hot tubs

We've got one. It came with the house. Heated it up at the beginning of last winter, and then never used it. Never very appealing to run across a freezing deck when you could be sat dry and cozy by a...

Re: mississauga with children

Not the bit I live in. North of QEW agreed, some horrible bits, but not where I am. It's like the nice bits of old Oakville with a shorter commute to TO.

Re: Difficulty getting a job in Halifax ish area

Don't send your resume anywhere. Turn up at the office / store or whatever kind of place you are trying to get into and speak to the peolple there.

Re: Who is holidaying in Nova Scotia???

But MajesticMajor knows all about it cos they've lived in NS for years and has a balanced opinion, so they don't need to hear from someone who has been through it ;)

Re: Halifax Nova Scotia

I would be wary of 'more bang for your buck'. I didn't find that at all. Housing might be cheaper than London or the GTA but general cost of living I found worse. Income tax, groceries, property...

So sorry to hear about your Mum.

I would really recommend snow tires in NS - definitely a different kind of snow to that dry stuff you get in Alberta.

Re: Vacuum Cleaners HELP!

Just get the Dyson. The cheapy alternative you buy will be crappy, and then you spend a fortune on central vac and that's really annoying too, dragging the bloody great hose about the place....
