favorite this post Should I settle in Kelowna? hide this posting unhide

Newly minted Canadian citizen here who has barely been in Canada and knows little of the land. Kelowna is the 3rd largest BC city, population 200,000. I'm asking residents whether I should settle here and, if so, why.

About me: I always thought Canada didn't want me, until the 2008 legislative changes to Immigration and Naturalization laws made me a citizen. Born outside Canada to a Canadian mother. I'm middle aged, absurdly overeducated, and quite healthy and fit. I do Physics, software engineering, electronic security systems, and teach martial arts on the side. Pacifist. I prefer to get around by bicycle whenever possible, and went 20 years in USA with no car. I'm divorced with adult children. I'd like to buy property in Canada.

Quirks: I'm mildly autistic. I can't tolerate extended loud engine noise. I like green space and nature. I live simply with few possessions.

Is Kelowna the place for me? If yes, why? If not, where is the right place?
