Brampton and Oakville !!!!!!

A world apart.

Do check out places like Clarkson, Bronte and Burlington.

Brampton, Mississauga and Oakville are very different from each-other.

Oakville has been predominantly a \"white\" town so far. And as the real-estate demand growth is being fueled by immigration, it is just matter of time that it's character would be very much like tha of Mississauga....though South Oakville will not be hit by this trend that soon....reasons being its proximity to Lakeshore and the prices of homes. Indian groceries are available everywhere, including Oakville...though they will certainly be little more expensive than they will be in in Mississauga and certainly more than in Brampton. Anyway, the distances between these cities is not that difficult to cross and groceries are mostly purchased once a week...so this can be worked in seamlessly into your commute to work or on your weekends.

Mississauga is very mixed, though most of its new inhabitants come from Middle-East and South-East Asia. Wealth from the Middle-East has been a major factor in increase of the prices in this region in the last 4-5 years.

Ratio in Brampton tilts little moretowards Blue collar but the new developments in Steeles/Mississauga and Castlemore areas have helped to change this ratio and also led to increase in real-estate values. Brampton is #6 on the list of cities that are likely to expect major growth in real-estate prices...with the first 5 cities out of GTA.

End of the day, before you listen to the thoughts and reasons for why other bought homes in these cities, I recommend you to make a list of MUST haves and the things that are important to you in your new home. Then make a trip to these cities on your own (with the help of a map) and make a lsit of areas that interest you the most. Thereafter, sit down with your knowledgeable Realtor(R) to work out the best course of action to achieve your LUST HAVES within your means.

Everybody has his or her own opinion..

My take ..
1>
For new immigrants if possible move to Toronto , because of excellent public transit...

If u do not like Toronto then Missisage and Brampton are next ...

2> rent appartment in the 1st year (preferably toronto ) until u find a location where u think u will like to live..


Go trains on Oakville like run every 15 min and takes 35 min to get to downtown.. but the problem is the connectivity is good only to downtown...

If u have to go to the rest of the city u are in trouble..

Plus u will need a car to drive to the Go station..

Winters the GO trains are late or don't run well and cannot always be counted on..

Thanks for your post. Being on CDesi for past 2 months and reading the discussions and seen Toronto (once), our desire...heart to migrate to Canada has withered but still for PR purposes we'll have to move one day. Thanks for your input...I save this for future.

Hi Jona,

Yes, I agree with the rest. I feel Mississauga would be a better choice with respect to renting, close to groceries, schools even if you don't have a car to start with. Brampton, well I haven't heard many positive things abt it.

So, are u already here in Canada? Or gonna come?

A white canuck friend of mine, who's house-hunting these days, told me the other day:

"Man, no disrespect, but I would like to live and grow my family in a white town, white neighborhood. We, whites, most of us in any case, we like to live with other whites. But whenever we find a place we like - Asians soon creep in. South and East Asians. Then we move again. Then the story repeats. Why don't you people want to live among the likes of you? Who told you that we want to have you around in these numbers?".

He's still considering Oakville/Bronte, though the south part of it, not yet thoroughly desified/sinified.

He brought up a valid point, in my opinion. What do you people think? Are we on some sort of a colonization conquest?

Well. I see a point in what he is saying. But then we Indians also gather in a specific region (which we perceive as white dominated, cheap and crime free) and we move in to make it a ghetto and the white people are afraid of the Ghetto and move. Some one else makes a Ghetto in the place where the whites have moved too and the whites move elsewhere.
Parts of Brampton, Scarborough,Jane/Finch are all major examples.
Univ. of Toronto is seen as a Mongolion university and the area around that place is fully occupied by the mongolians.
So what you should say to the white person is that " It is your choice buddy. Just like we move in to your place, you should either adjust with us or make a move elsewhere".

Peace

I'm not going to say that to him, for it's a really f-ed up thing to say. I'd be pissed about this whole immigration and "diversity" bs if I were him. If they (and some of us) don't stop it, we together with mongolians will turn this place into what we ran away from - asia.
