Planning a move with your family can be overwhelming. There are a few things you need to consider before determining where is the best place to put down your 'welcome home' mat. How many schools are within your district? How close are you to hospitals? What would the cost of living be for your whole family? These are just some questions you need to ask yourself. Although bustling cities like Toronto are exciting and typically have the infrastructure to support your family, there are other up and coming areas in Ontario that you should consider!
