    Canada has very harsh winters but Australia has very harsh summers. Just choose the lesser evil.

    Australia for sure.

    Weather - Harsh summer is manageable vs Harsh winter
    Proximity - closer to PH, only 2-3 hour difference depending on DST. also, only an 8 hour flight.
    Location - who wants to be near the US and Europe?? when the world goes into WW3, safe ang mga nasa Australia because we are protected by the seas.
    Culture - I think same same. AU has the mate culture and Canada is known for their politeness.
    Food - AU pa rin kahit hindi ko pa natitikman ang offerings ng Canada. hahaha! But compared to PH, lahat ng pagkain mas masarap dito sa AU.
    Cost of Living - dito matatalo ang AU, I think. It's more affordable to own property in Canada, I heard.

    Both country are good. In terms of benefits. Ang lamang lang tlga sa australia is that, ang daming promo fares pauwing pinas. Anjan ang cebupac airasia at pal. Kaya kung ma homesick ka. Kahit mag book ka ticket agad2 pauwi. Pwede. He he!
