Canada and online datingWhen it comes to meeting a dream partner, you’ll obviously want to do everything you can to expand your options. For some, this might be as extreme as relocating to another city in the hope of finding love. Canada has one of the highest numbers of immigrants in the world, so you are going to get the chance to meet new people wherever you are.

But is this something you really need to do and if so, which city is right for you? Find out which location really matters when it comes to meeting someone amazing.


This city has the largest Metropolitan area in Canada, so you are never going to run out of opportunities to meet new people. The average age is quite young, too.

The problem is that living expenses and rent are high, living little disposable income for going out and dating. In fact, many Torontonians have stopped going out clubbing, preferring to meet other singles on dating sites instead.

However, don’t let this put you off. Dating doesn’t need to be expensive and if you use your imagination you can have lots of fun. A great recommendation is Snakes and Lattes where you can play board games while getting to know someone over a coffee.

Vancouver is a beautiful city, view views of water and mountains. It’s a melting pot of ethnicities and is welcoming to all types of people.

If you are a sporty, active single then there is so much you can do here. You’ll never run out of ideas to go on dates with all the restaurants, museums and places of interest.

Sadly, recent polls have showed that many young people are being priced out of the city as they can’t afford to live there.

What this means is that even more will try online dating as a way to connect with each other.


Recently voted the second safest place to life in the world by the Economist, Montreal has some of the friendliest residents in Canada. Rent is much cheaper than other areas too, giving you more cash for dating.

Montreal is often known as the party capital of Canada, with events on every day and night for you to enjoy.

Every year they have Digital Spring which is a several month showcase of the digital world. If you are interested in gaming, film or technology, then you’ll meet many likeminded singles.

My advice to you is simple – you don’t need to do anything as drastic as moving home, but you should definitely think about booking lots of trips away! If you are struggling with your current dating pool then think out of the box and set yourself some new adventures and challenges. Online dating can dramatically help you do this, so find a site you like and start reaching out.
