Besides, I'm already settled in Canada. I've started on a new career in the oil and gas industry and am still in the process of trying to see if I can get a residency positions (so that door is not entirely closed to me in Canada still).
So there's still quite a bit ahead of me in Canada. It's an adventure. If I wasn't doing well in Canada, unhappy and struggling etc then yeah maybe I'd look into NZ a bit more. But otherwise, no point looking back. Objectively I view Canada as a very blessed country with all kinds of resources (water, energy, food, space, minerals etc). Arguably unsurpassed in the world.
