Pros & Cons of Moving to Kingston

Moving from Ottawa to Kingston will allow you to explore all sorts of historic sites, charming neighborhoods, and scenic waterfronts. Your new residence will offer plenty of opportunities, new sights to see, and a vibrant community.

Pros of Moving to Kingston

Economic and Job Opportunities

Kingston boasts a diverse economy with opportunities in sectors like healthcare, education, government, and technology. 

It is home to institutions like Queen’s University, St. Lawrence College, the Royal Military College of Canada, and several hospitals, providing employment options across various fields.

Education and Health Facilities

The city is renowned for its quality education institutions and healthcare facilities. 

Families moving to Kingston can access top-notch schools, including both public and private options, along with excellent healthcare services provided by hospitals and clinics, such as The Kingston Health Sciences Centre, and Providence Care

Vibrant Community and Lifestyle

Kingston offers a vibrant community with numerous cultural events, art galleries, festivals, and recreational activities. Kingston is a very walkable city that boasts dozens of museums and historical sights, unique shopping and dining experiences, and plenty of hidden gems tucked throughout the city.

However, there are some disadvantages to Kingston. As a city near the Greater Toronto Area, there are some factors to consider for your next move.

Cons of Moving to Kingston


Kingston experiences typical Canadian weather, including cold winters with snowfall and relatively warm summers. The climate may not be suitable for everyone, particularly those who prefer milder temperatures. Of course, if you’re coming from Ottawa, the southern Ontario winters are something you’ll already be used to!

Rising Cost of Living

Like many other cities in Ontario, Kingston has seen a gradual increase in the cost of living. Housing prices, in particular, have been on the rise, which may pose a challenge for individuals or families on a tight budget.

Transportation Limitations

While Kingston has a public transit system, it may not be as extensive or convenient as larger urban centers. Dependence on personal vehicles is common, and traffic congestion can be an issue during peak hours.
