Living in Windsor, Ontario

Welcome to Windsor, the southernmost city in Canada! Just a few miles across the border from the Michigan city of Detroit, expats living in Windsor can just look across the Detroit River and see into the United States. Unsurprisingly, it shares an economic history with the Motor City, and sometimes gets the nickname "Ford City" after the Canadian Ford Motor Company, which was founded in Windsor. The city is also called “The City of Roses”, as the residents planted so many rose beds that the entire city center sometimes carries the scent of roses. So grow a few roses on your windowsill or in your garden to really fit in with the locals! Expats in Windsor can also get to know the city better by taking the time to visit local sites such as the Odette Sculpture Park, touted as a "museum without walls".

Moving to Windsor

Expatriates moving to Windsor will find a quiet, but busy city, with low crime rates and good schools. Due to its proximity to the US border, there are a lot of American expats living and working in the city. There is an airport in Windsor, but international expatriates may find it easier to enter the country via Detroit’s international airport. However, as with any border crossings, be aware that you could be delayed when traveling to Detroit from Windsor and vice versa. Speak directly to other expats to learn more about what to expect from life in a Canadian border city; sign up on InterNations, the largest global online expatriate community, and use the platform’s discussion boards and forums to socialize and network with fellow expats and global minds.

Working in Windsor

Working life in Canada may be very different to working life in America, so American expatriates should do their research before making the move. For a start, the cost of living is lower, and this may be reflected in your paycheck (which will be in Canadian dollars, naturally). Health care, dental care and life insurance policies are similarly all different north of the border. Nevertheless, international expats will find that working in Windsor is similar to working in any small-to-medium sized city. While it has all the amenities you would expect from a major industrial hub, you are never more than an hour’s drive from some truly stunning scenery, such as the Point Pelee National Park. Check out the InterNations’ discussion boards and forums to speak to other expatriates about how to make the most of working and living in Canada, and to share your own experiences of expat life.
