1) Stay out of politics. Very dangerous these days.
2) The lifestyle varies a lot depending on where you'll be and even within the same city. I would recommend learning the language absolutely as quickly as you can - in many places no one at all will speak English.
The US State Department has lots of information on safety in different countries. I imagine the Canadian government publishes something similar. You should definitely read up on it because things many people take for granted do not work the same way in other countries - asking for directions from police officers, for example.
