If you’re looking to move to Canada but unsure where’s best to live, this handy guide to the best regions to live in will help you.

Six single-family lots on West 41st to become 88 new homes

The development, known as The Bromley, will consist of two, four-storey wood frame buildings on West 41st Avenue and two townhouse blocks on the laneway, with a landscaped courtyard in between them.

There aren’t a ton of details, but a five-storey market rental building is slated for the 1500-block Grant Street near Commercial Drive.

The new building, designed by Stuart Howard Architects Inc., will include 35 secured market rental units, replacing four single family homes at 1535-1557 Grant Street.
