INFRASTRUCTURE

Miami: Miami’s infrastructure is governed by the fact that it is a coastal city, susceptible to rising sea levels, flooding, and storm surges. According to the metropolis’s official website, they have been working on “the hardening of the city’s coastline with natural and built structures (green and gray) in combination with the rainwater infrastructure” to implement the strategy of adaptation to floods. They want the Stormwater Master Plan and a comprehensive coastal infrastructure plan to provide solutions to protect Miami from “the increasing risks of flooding over the next 40 to 50 years.”

 

Toronto: The development of the Canadian infrastructure is called one of the best globally, thanks to the fact that it meets the requirements of connectivity, high technology, terrestrial relay centers, international submarine cables, and about 750 internet providers. Relative to Toronto, this is one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in North America. There, there is constant investment in roads, access to traffic, water, and sewerage services.

 

ECONOMY 

Miami: If you want to emigrate and start a business, Miami will be the ideal place since it is known as one of the “most important financial centers” in the United States. The city constantly promotes the city’s economic sectors and the international ones since there are some headquarters of foreign companies. 

 

Toronto: Toronto is the financial, industrial, and commercial center of Ontario and Canada, and its economy is one of the most varied and strong in the country as a whole. There you will find the main offices of the banking centers of the territory. The job offer in Toronto is vast and diverse, ideal if you are a newcomer looking for a job.

HEALTH

Miami: In general, the health system in the United States is considered one of the most expensive in the world and has also been called one of the “worst performers” since you must pay a very high price to access it. In 2013, about 18% of the country’s adults could not access medical care due to increased insurance costs.

 

Toronto: Unlike the United States, the Canadian health system is funded jointly by the public and private insurance. Canada’s publicly funded health care system is dynamic. It has universal coverage for necessary health care services based on need rather than the ability to pay.

 

CULTURE

Miami: The culture of Miami has a strong Latin and Caribbean influence due to the migration that has been growing in the city and the state. You will definitely find cultures from Cuba, the Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and Mexico in Florida.
