Hey all. I am born and raised in South Africa and have decided to move to Canada after my undergraduate degree to pursue my life long goal in music and forming a band. I am wondering which cities would be the best for me to settle down. I wish to form a band with music delving into Metal, Metalcore, Electronic hardcore music and am wondering out of all the cities which is the best to get this done. I was originally thinking of Toronto, any good ideas on where and why? Thanks all , have a lovely day.

Good luck with your research qualifying a Visa to live in Canada.

In any case for what you're looking for Toronto has by far the best scene initially for a newcomer.

It's kind of amusing to read that you have 'decided to move to Canada'. You make it sound as if anyone can decide to live wherever they want without any regard to whether they can legally get the right to do so. A lot of people would no doubt like that to be the case but it is not.

So before asking about where in Canada might be best to pursue your career plans, I think you need to research whether you can actually get a Visa to begin with. If you have already got an answer to that and know you can get the Visa, then it would be useful to say so. Otherwise people may waste their time discussing where to go to pursue music when in fact you can't even get to Canada to begin with.
