Moving to Europe from Canada

Jump to last reply

I'm not really sure where to start looking and have used this forum fo travel and gotten great advice so I'm hoping there are some tips I can get. My husband and I are both right @ 30 yrs old and are both teachers living in Western Canada. I have always dreamed of living in Europe and would like to seriously start investigating what this would take.

Of course I think the easiest thing would be for both of us to get teaching jobs but I don't really know where to start looking, especially since we need two jobs in the same area. We also don't know how to start looking into things like cost of living vs salary, quality of live, etc in different areas. I think we'd like to move there permanently but I'm worried that it seems like it's very difficult to get visas in Europe long term (or even at all). Any suggestions on where to start getting this information?

We are vaguely leaning toward Spain, France, or warmer parts of the UK (lol, if that exists), but really have no idea.

Lastly, this might sound odd, but we have 3 cats who are like children to us and we would be bringing them along. I'd really like to move somewhere where they will have quality of life and a very minimal trauma in the move (as in little to no quarantine period).

Any information is very much appreciated.
