Q: My family just moved back to Canada after a few years living in Iceland. While we are happy to be back closer to our families, I really miss the quality of life we had there. I used to leave my baby sleeping in her stroller while I went into a shop! Everybody did. Life seemed safe and, in some ways, easier. Now we are living outside Toronto, trying to figure out where to settle in Canada, and I crave someplace to live that feels that safe and family-friendly here.

A: Welcome back to Canada! As an immigrant myself, I often find myself comparing Canadian cities and communities to others I’ve known around the world. And because I also have a background in community planning, I like to look at the design reasons behind how we experience our communities. So, while I can’t tell you where to live, I can tell you a bit more about the benefits of children living in cities and how to start thinking like a designer when critiquing whatever community you choose to call home.
