About This Quiz

If Vancouver, British Columbia, had a personality, it would be laid back, on the introverted side and always ready for the next outdoor adventure. Toronto, Ontario, on the other hand, would be rambunctious, extraverted and always excited about the next big trend — like an older, more outgoing sibling. Your personality might not fit either city perfectly — or it just might do that exactly — but either way, the questions that follow will give us a better idea of where you might feel the most at home if the opportunity to change locations presented itself. After all, personality isn't only based on answers to hypothetical questions; it's also a result of personal preference and the different ways you like to spend your time (of which there are many in Vancouver and Toronto.)

So tell us — what makes you happy and how do you like to spend your time outdoors? What leaves room for improvement in your city, and how do you plan on reacting to the inevitable changes that need to be made to fix these problems? Put aside your preferences for East Coast vs. West Coast and think about these questions truthfully — you may just find yourself wondering if you're living in the right part of Canada when you're finished!
