First the School suitable for their entry GRADE. Then a PLACE TO reside..
First, Please find a very nice school, suitable for their GRADES that they want to enter into. Then look for a place to reside close by. (The catchment area.) That is the way to go.

You will always get good rental apartments/condos there in London Ont.

Hope this helps.

FH.

Please click on SCHOOLS in LONDON ONTARIO. (NOT england.)
Click on WIKI and then the second Group LONDON ONT.

London is a good City and very Nostalgic.. Many Desies live there. Groceries?!

I have pretty good knowledge of this city and the areas around this. But I don't live there.

You must have wheels, so getting to work will not be a difficult process. They do have buses too.
Depending upon what grade the child will be entering into, punch in the city which is LONDON, in your case, and come up with all of the RATINGS. Choose one that fits your area that you want to reside and check for the schools and their standing with the FRASER INSTITUTE. You want to avoid the ones that are in the LOW ranking.

The rest should fall in place. If you already have a job and know where the employer is situated, then NARROW it down to one area suitable to your liking and closer to work.

If you need any further assistance, drop a note below this in the same thread.

Good Luck.

FH.

London, ON is a ghetto place.

More than 80 % are White. Lot of White trash there, mostly on Welfare & ODSP. Poverty & Crime is rampant in this area.

And only 2 % are brown. As a DESI you will have a horrible time there:cry:

So what would be the better place to live as per you with someone who is working in London with not much drive to work?

thanks

When you take the North Bound Exit on 401 and Wellington, you pass Commissioners Street and one Street West is Wharncliffe. There are about 10 grocers and eateries around that area that deal in Indian Spices and Condiments.

Besides those, there are No Frills and Food Basics and Freshco branches too. They all deal in the goodies that one looks for, including Samosas and Jilebies.

Just explore that area once and get to know them.

FH.

What I know is that the rentals are good and jobs are plenty.

From London to Toronto in a little more than an hour, will make London a very different city in which to live. It might happen fast.

The Ontario government Friday announced high-speed rail for Southwestern Ontario is on track, from Toronto to Windsor and linking London to the mega-city by 2025, in what would be a $20-billion investment pulling London into Torontos commuter orbit, with big economic spinoffs here.

Not only would high-speed rail mean Londoners could work in Toronto and be home in time for dinner, but they could also speed to Torontos airport, the nations busiest.

The system could also attract talent to London, meeting a big need the business community, said Kapil Lakhotia, chief executive of the London Economic Development Corp.

The 96-kilometre radius around Toronto grows at a faster pace than the rest of the Ontario. That is why we need this infrastructure. Cities outside the GTA bubble need connectivity to Toronto. That can help attract business and talent to London, he said.

It is a great step in reducing commute times to Toronto and attracting talent to London, which over the last several years has been a constraint to growth here.
