If anyone remembers from my thread of about a month ago, my husband and I are around 30, in debt, and desperately want to find a way to save up and get our land. Preferably sooner rather than later!
We are considering moving out west to Alberta in so my husband could get started in a trade, make a decent wage, and pay off our debts. Then hopefully in a few years we could start saving for our land. We have come to the conclusion that it is too hard to get into trades here in Ontario where there is not a shortage of workers but a shortage of jobs.
What I'm wondering is, if we were to move to Alberta, and if we were to decide to stay there after my dh completes his trade certification--is Alberta a good province for homesteading? When I picture Alberta I picture either mountains or cattle ranching...is there much good "unused" land we could turn into a homestead? And more importantly, is there any land left that is affordable?
If anyone out there is from Alberta, I would really appreciate your thoughts on the matter! Thank you.
