Winnipeg.
Known as the “Gateway to the West”, Winnipeg is an amazing and multicultural city, which hosts numerous annual festivals: the Festival du Voyageur, the Winnipeg Folk Festival, the Jazz Winnipeg Festival, the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, and Folklorama. Winnipeg was the first Canadian host of the Pan American Games and is home to several professional sports franchises. A really funny city!

Toronto.
Toronto is the most populous city in Canada but also the most cosmopolitan with about 49% of the population born outside Canada. It’s Canada commercial capital, and is rated as one of the world’s most livable cities by the Economist Intelligence Unit and the Mercer Quality of Living Survey. For sure you would like to live here!

Victoria.
Victoria is one of the oldest cities in the Pacific Northwest, and it has retained a large number of its historic buildings. Two of the most famous are the British Columbia Parliament Buildings and the Empress hotel. Furthermore, the city Chinatown is the second oldest in North America after San Francisco. Known as the “City of Gardens”, Victoria is an gorgeous city and a popular tourism destination!

Montreal.
Montreal was named a UNESCO City of Design because in fact, it’s a Top#1 in technology, design, culture, tourism, gaming, film and world affairs.

Vancouver.
Vancouver is a coastal seaport city on the mainland of British Columbia, is regularly named as one of the top five worldwide cities for livability and quality of life. Remember that Canada will host the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, and several matches will be played in Vancouver, including the final at BC Place Stadium. I love this city!

Ottawa.
The city stands on the south bank of the Ottawa River, and is the capital of Canada, and the fourth largest city in the country. The city is among the most educated in Canada, and hosts a number of post-secondary, research, and cultural institutions. Another great place!

. All of my life, I have been in love with arts. My grandfather was an artist and I grew up in that world of colors and fantasies. I studied History, what included Art History. I published a novel ‘Ariza’ in 2008 and an essay about old female painters, ‘The Girls of Oil’, in 2010. Now, I've a pet, Jack the Labrador, who usually accompany me when I'm writing for my current jewel, Yareah magazine, edited alongside author Martin Cid.
