    each for a month.

    I left for Nova Scotia in canada, which was my first destination. I lived in Canada and Chicago, each for a month.

    ---------------------------------------
    Is it correct to say "each for one month" or "for one month (for) each"?

    Both are fine. We would usually say "Nova Scotia, Canada," without the "in," but both ways are correct.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
