If your kids play hockey, is that an important factor of where you would like to move? There are some great suburbs with excellent hockey programs, with stable or growing populations. Are you needing a private or public school hockey program? What level do they want to play, A or AA?
Another important factor will be what price range of home you will be looking for...this will also determine which area you move to. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you, or any questions I can answer!
