This is a country that remains largely uninhabited, so a relocation to Canada is perfect for seekers of wild, open spaces.

Boston is the oldest city in America, so there’s an impressive list of ‘1sts’ associated with it. It’s home to the 1st lighthouse to be built in America, on Brewster Island. Boston Common is the 1st public park to open in America – back in 1634. And the first subway ever was built here in 1897. Now Boston is very much a 21st city and home to some of the world’s largest employers in finance, life sciences and technology.
