    i would pick BC in a heartbeat. i hope you will make this decision based on which place you would like to live better. BC is so beautiful - but I love coastal life. you will be able to find a job in either place. the difference in the cost of a license will be no big deal in a year or two. you should visit both places and see for yourself which suits you better. do you have family in either place that you want to be close to? for me this decision is easy, i would pick the more beautiful landscape. (in fact, that is exactly why I chose to stay in Seattle rather than going back to Texas after my residency was over)

    ps-the cost is probably different because BC is a more desirable place to live and they know they can charge that price.

    It really depends on what you're looking for there. BC and Ontario are very different and it's important to decide whether you want to live in a major city (ex. Vancouver or Toronto)

    BC = more relaxed, but everything's a lot more expensive (ex. housing)
    ON = a lot less relaxed, but everything's avaliable at a relatively lower price.

    no one in their right mind should choose the east coast over the west coast( snow/ harsh weather).
