    Any major Canadian cities will have good clubs. Do you know which provinces you will be going?

    There are lots of English schools for international students in Vancouver. One of the best places to play badminton is the Vancouver Racquets Club..and there are also many community centres that one can play in as well.

    I agree with 15love - Vancouver is certainly a good choice. The weather is the mildest when compared with Toronto and Calgary. Vancouver tends to rain or drizzle more. Calgary is drier (due to interior and higher altitude).
    Toronto in July can get 33 C and 80-90% humidity but Toronto is another good choice. The city is bigger than Vancouver.
    I do not know much about Calgary in regard to studying English. I think either Toronto or Vancouver will be a good choice for studying English and playing badminton.
    For location to play in Vancouver, you can post on the Canada-West forum.
    For Toronto, you can post on the Canada-East forum.
    Both cities have members in this forum, and I am sure they can help you.
