Edmonton is a great city for people coming from other countries. I am born here and am working towards a degree. I can say that this city is good for people who have "experience" in there professional field of work. Edmonton is a blue collar city and new professional grads will find it very hard to find a job here. Its hard to find a good professional job as the cities identity is manufacturing and oil related if you do get a job the vast majority will be oil industry based.

For new grad with degrees you might not have luck there are limited opportunities for jobs in this good city. Companies want grad with many years of work experience. Your better off going to U.S.A they value your degree unlike this manufacturing hell hole.

Relatively heap place to live for a large, wealthy city in Canada. If your English is good and you're a hard worker you will never have trouble finding work, but it might not pay you very well, and the min. wage is just too low to live off of. The biggest downside in terms of CPI is the high cost of food, but the fact that entry-level jobs grow on trees here seems to make up for that.

Keep in mind, fellow Edmontonians, that all of this might be over in 50 years if the oil industry goes downhill, and if the oil reserves run out Alberta might turn into a wasteland.
#Lorie on Apr 24, 2014 :
Hello All,

I have talked to many Canadians through business relations and found them to be very nice. My husband and I are thinking about moving to Canada, but have no idea where to start. My son has three more years in High School and my daughter has one year left. My worries are finding a job. I will have my Bachelors Degree in Legal Studies, but not sure if that degree would do me any good in Canada since will obtain the degree in the U. S. Please advise cost of living, how we would get a visa until we find jobs and an affordable apartment or house to rent. Cheers :)
#Roham on Apr 19, 2014 :

#Bruce Herrmann on Mar 28, 2014 :
all I have too say about this HUGE City of Edmonton it SUCKS , we were Called once Dead-monton years ago. nothing to do here Compared to BC. out there the people are alot more layed back and more friendlier than this STUCK UP City.. And I'm on AISH and have an illness of OCD and axniety I take medds to Control my Moods for it. the only good thing about Alberta is there alberta healthcare, Compared to Obama's terrible .U.S. standard of heathcare in the America were you pay out of your pocket Book for expense for every thing and not enough Money lefted to retire on when your an Middle aged old Man like Me. the .U.S. SUCKS so does there there president, he is breaking the banks on down there. unemployment is rising on on down there. Its TIME for a Change in AMERICA, I say. - Bruce
#ArianaAuburn on Mar 20, 2014 :
Try to get a job before arriving to Edmonton. Or have hefty savings. The city is an expensive place to live.
#Anonymous on Mar 16, 2014 :
Im asian and this is my 3rd year in edmonton, my husband got here 2 years earlier than me and at first i was scared of the changes that living here would bring. But so far, the people are friendly and good, here i learned to say a lot of please and thank you :).. There are some people specially old ones that doesn't like immigrants (i work in retail so i have my share of experiencing rude people) but i just shrug it off, its not my job to change their minds but its my job to respect whatever culture canadians have since i chose to move here. All in all, life's good, edmonton is great and my new friends here are awesome! Thoughi still miss my home country most of the time
#Anonymous on Feb 19, 2014 :
I’m from Edmonton, and as I was checking against some other cities, I noticed that our Tennis Court Rent rates were always +100-500% more than other cities. I decided to give my input when I got this notice.

One thing to take into consideration is the ambiguity of the label. In Edmonton, no one plays tennis outside in the winter due to snow and temperature. So if you’re renting an indoor tennis facility, that may cost way more than renting and outdoor one in the summer. However, I compared Edmonton and Calgary (3 hours away from each other), and noticed Calgary had the low rate of 18$ C (I inputted 16$ C, according to this link: http://www.edmonton.ca/attractions_recreation/sport_recreation/tennis-courts.aspx) which I assume means summer. The current rate of 55$ C is quite high for an outdoor court; perhaps this is a country club tennis court?
#Smith on Jan 16, 2014 :
I am trying to buy a condo in southwest edmonton. I was just wondering what is the cost per sq.ft?

I just saw in COMFREE a 2 bed 2 bath 815sq.ft condo constructed in 2012 costs $225000. Is this a good price?Is it worth?
#cris on Jan 12, 2014 :

#Agne on Jan 08, 2014 :
Hi guys, have red all your comments, but still can find out what the real living costs are... We are Lithuanian family last 5 years living in Ireland.
We have two children - 6 and 2,5. We would like tp know wha te the REAL living expences are, especially rent (in a good, safe place, something like 2-3 bedroom appartmant or small house), bills, what kinds of heating are availlable in Edmonton, which is cheappest and more efficient? How about schools and child minding services (costs and etc). And petrol?
And my main question would be - is it possible to create a good life for a familly with two kids(my husband is a hily experienced cofe/pub chef, myself - retail and fast food sales assistant (pharmacy assistant at the moment) with certificate in Practical Management (a Supervisory Management Skills course). I suppose, we both would be making average money, am I right?
We are a type of family, htat doesnt like to waste money for such a things like restaurants, cinemas or so.. We prefer to spend time somewhere that doesn't cost that much.
I would really appreciate if someone could give me a proper info, please email me on whiteblossom26@gmail.com
#Lauren on Dec 23, 2013 :
I’ve been living in Edmonton for a long time and things have changed drastically. Edmontonians who were hoping the prices would drop, seeing even higher prices now. Let me remind you the gas prices that are incredibly high…Although I’m really interested in home ownership moreover as I bought this year a flat for my family, our first home. I follow the real estate listings in my city every day. I like to know what’s out there. I had time to find my flat at localmartca.com and I was impressed with the lowest prices I’ve seen in new buildings. Maybe it’ll help someone to find his place for living.
#Mike on Nov 21, 2013 :
I've lived in Edmonton most of my life, since the late 80s and the Edmonton of the past 10 years has turned into crazy, money hungry, work centered kind of environment with everything else being stripped away for people to maximize profits while working in oil. It really kinda sucks for those who don't work in those industries because I remember in the 90s being able to work minimum wage with a partner and being able to cover all the bills, not live luxurious or anything but you weren't in the negative. There is no way in hell you can do that in 2013, cost of groceries, gas, rent/mortgage are all way higher than what the average person pays in the majority of the US and this isn't some Vancouver where you live on a coast line.

Now its a turbulent time because of all the crazy immigrant issues happening, some people don't like that so many people are arriving in Alberta and getting these crazy paying jobs in the oil industry because when that stuff goes away, and away it will go one day, those people will leave. Not like I blame them, Edmonton has always been a small time city with big city ego. It doesn't have the amenities of some of Canada's biggest cities like being close to borders or oceans or having really vibrant culture like in Quebec. But people are generally friendly, racism and whatnot are not really issues since you have all kinds of cultures working together in the trades. I often seen motley teams of Canadians, Europeans and Asians working together and that is something I like because resentment over culture is ultimately so un-Canadian.

I'm looking at these stats and can't believe the numbers, where will you rent a 3 bedroom house in the South/south west for $1500? Those prices fit the north parts of the city where the city looks like other parts of the city did in the 80s, old and run down at this point. In the nicer areas a 3 bedroom is more like $1800 - $2000 without utilities. I don't even know how people rent in this city when that amount can easily be a mortgage payment on a home or even less if you get one of the numerous condos in the city.

Couple of the comments dealt with the intrusiveness of government and in many respects it's true though Alberta is probably one of the more hands off provinces when it comes to stuff like getting paperwork through because they depend on it so much. If it works for you, you stay, if you don't, you can go back to the US and maybe get lucky. I won't deny that living in the US can be way cheaper and the taxes lower but I'll take getting taxed a little bit more and having healthcare without risking losing a house because I can't afford insurance for whatever it is monthly there only to have to pay some crazy deductibles.If you're a millionaire you're not living in Canada anyway or at least not paying taxes here. It's more of a country built for the average person and not the upper tier to do as they please.
#Aly Skye on Nov 18, 2013 :
Well, I've lived in Canada all my life. These taxes that rob you, could save someones life for medical expenses. Don't start bitching about us Canadians and expect us to take it with a smile. You wonder why you all get bad reps, quit being an arse about that. If we call Americans names, it's because of what Americans we've met. My boss met an American who thought we lived in igloos and rode on moose. So in reality don't complain. DX
#russet on Nov 08, 2013 :
I'm willing to answer direct, polite questions about living in Edmonton and Alberta, Canada more generally. I have lived in the three Prairie provinces and Nunuvut (North West Territories), near north and Arctic, Ontario, and visited and have relatives and friends down east and in British Columbia.
#Russet on Nov 08, 2013 :
Leona

Renting in a good suburban neighbourhood, one with all amenities you need for a family with a child, would be: about $1500 for a two bedroom apartment in a walk-up, about $2000 plus you pay heat and all utilities for a three bedroom bungalow. There is no provincial sales tax, so Alberta is cheaper than Saskatchewan, for example, but both have the nationally imposed sales tax of 5% on most purchases. There is a huge divide between haves and have-nots here. If your family is working in the oil industry, you'll take part in the "Alberta Advantage" meaning you'll make good money, have health benefits, and disposable income. If not, you'll be lucky to break even. No one rents for less in GOOD safe neighbourhoods just because you can't find a job. Good safe neighbourhoods are anywhere south of the river, with best being west and central, to less desirable being east and southeast. Look for something along the LRT wherever you rent. Least desirable neighbourhoods are northeast, with lots of crime and unemployment.
#Leona on Oct 23, 2013 :
Hi

Were in the uk my husband has a job offer in edmonton , if we relocate with our 4 year old daughter how easy is it to rent houses and find schools etc...
#Scott on Sep 30, 2013 :
Hey so I'm from Edmonton and I'll try to clear some stuff up. Cost of living is pretty high here, but generally high salaries for skilled labour makes up for that . Medicare is still pretty good despite what some people say. Our infrastructure is getting replaced/overhauled so it's not looking the prettiest. Discrimination is pretty low level/non existent but don't quote me on that (I'm a W.A.S.P). I don't have any problems with Americans or anyone else I know for that matter.

Rules to follow: Don't be an asshole, mind your manners, say please and thank you, complain about the local sports teams from time to time.
#Egide Halle on Sep 15, 2013 :
Hello buddies! i wanna come to Edmonton for winter programs but i really know nothing about Edmonton and I'm from Africa. so my query is: how will i really be welcomed as someone from Africa? isn't there anything like discrimination or racism? can i really live a simple life and what are the opportunities of me getting employed in other to save for my tuition fees and other life expenses such as accommodation and food?
N.B: SIMPLE FOOD AND SIMPLE/SMALL ACCOMMODATION FOR SINGLE ME ARE WHAT I WANT...

so dear friends advice me whether my wishes will come true or not....

i personally taught that AMERICANS and CANADIANS are all the same with the same heart and culture, love each other since they are from the same Continent!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I want to cum to live in canada from croatia please give me some advice to start there with a family,please.
#BeckonsAttore on Aug 29, 2013 :
I think that apartments for rent in Edmonton are alright. Though, I'd rent them rather than buying them. That's just because I don't like the idea of buying something that I wouldn't plan to live in for 20+ years. Plus, you have to stay there until you can sell it. I like the flexibility and opportunity gained by renting apartments. URL: http://www.firesidepropertygroup.com/edmonton.php
#Area on Aug 15, 2013 :
I know exactly that Canada is much better then Ukraine or Russia. Having been visiting my relatives in Ukraine I was so happy to be back to Canada. Nice place to live and work.
#K-Y on Aug 11, 2013 :
if you immigrants think Canada is so bad stay in your own country, were better off here without everyone else coming here taking the jobs and costing us more in taxes
##Moonstruck on Aug 04, 2013 :
Canada is nothing they advertise and people think - people are silly, rules make no sense, you work like an idiot to get robbed for useless taxes, everything is just money-oriented and zero quality; food is terrible, nothing tastes like food actually, air is polluted (unless you go back to mother nature), waters polluted and color like hell, is lot of discrimination and no respect for human beings. All is just a big banner to advertise something which actually is not real. So, I agree with Asi.L - never been to US, lived in many other places though and one thing is for sure - think 100 times before choosing Canada...or....it depends what you want in life and what kind of person you are.

#Tunde john on Jul 15, 2013 :
From what i can gather so far, Canada is a good place to live. There is no perfect place all over the world but some places are better lived in.I dream of living in Canada,with the intention of broaden my knowledge in Socialwork.I believe i have more to offer the world.So, if you notice any problem in any where you are, be part of the Solution. We live in an imperfect world!
#RobH on Jul 08, 2013 :
Myself and my wife are considering moving to edmonton from the UK with a job offer already in place. I'm really looking for advice from any other people who have recently moved there to find out what pitfalls to look out for, advantages over the UK and any little gems of advice that you may have.
Thanks & Regards

#Nadia on Jun 12, 2013 :
I have to agree with Asi L. The Federal and Provincial governments regulate us to death.. By the time you get a permit for anything and everything, take all the related courses and then have the inspectors, regulators who ever "needs" to see what you are doing it can take a very long time to set up a business esp. a food related business. I admire those that have the patience, time and money to jump through all the hoops.
#Asi L. on Jun 10, 2013 :
I lived in the Us for 12 years ad than moved to Vancouver for 3 years; Let me tell you: The US is the BEST place in the world. It has some problems but the freedom to do, create, live travel and explore are second to none. No one will stop you from being a somebody!
Canada sucks only just because of the bureaucracy, the government here is in your business, everyday living must be confronted by big brother. No breathing room or error room. You see big brother everywhere.
The people are so laid back and it doesn't really feel like north America; maybe India or China.
Stay in the US, It is the best place on earth.
#siamak on May 14, 2013 :
please somebody tell me , cost of living in edmonton for 4 person family (father, mother and 2 children) and cost of elementary school for children.
thank you so much
#Justsomeperson on Mar 01, 2013 :
I think the reason we get a lot of, let's say negative people here, is because a lot of people come expecting work and easy money. When it doesn't happen, they get jaded but find themselves trapped here nonetheless. Then people see someone else get what they wanted, so they are willing to make the other person their scapegoat. This is of course, my opinion only. I'm not going to apologize for someone else's behavior, because even at my lowest I don't blame others for my life. Even people born here have the entitlement syndrome (not saying all, but it does exist). It sucks that people are like this, however this exists everywhere. In a 'boom' city it is just a bit more prevelant. Give a neighbor a chance and ignore the multitude of jerks, if we all judged everyone by a few ill mannered, choice making individuals, are we being any better than them? Sorry to use your page as my sounding board. Just figured people on both sides should be reminded we are all in this together.
#Samantha on Jan 31, 2013 :
Gosh people! I'm Canadian and i like Americans as much as I like high heels. Canada and America are friends, but in my opinion, AMERICANS and CANADIANS aren't.

Thank you
#Milkman on Dec 21, 2012 :
Annie - I am a long time resident of Edmonton (Since 1988) - I sympathize with you- there is some 'anti-American' sentiment not just in Edmonton - but all over Canada. These people are basically ignorant idiots that have some stroetyping issues. .. I personally love our American brothers and sisters ... and yes - many of the doctors ARE useless.
#Janet on Dec 04, 2012 :
@Annie - I am from Newfoundland and although yes some people in Edmonton can be rude, so can people in ALL cities and ALL countries... perhaps it was not the city and the people but your attitude?
Albertans are a proud brood and negativity can get a lot of folks backs up..especially if the negativity is coming from US visitors who spout off a lot of pompous yank attitudes..
Either way, Edmonton, though not my true home, I am proud to call it my for now home, and would never live in any other country than Canada..
#Lindsay on Dec 04, 2012 :
Aww, Annie, I'm sorry to hear that! I'm an Edmontonian and I think I'm pretty friendly...if I were to meet someone from out of town, I would be over the moon to take them around and show them the sights! Whyte Ave, our museums, the festivals, great pubs and restaurants--I love Edmonton and am very proud to call it home. It may be just the people you see regularly or work with who are rude, but we're not all like that, I promise! It may be cold here, but I know a lot of very warm souls who call this northern burgh home! :)
#Anon on Nov 09, 2012 :
As an American moving to Edmonton for work I couldn't be more excited. I lived in Alberta years ago and am looking forward to getting back. Yes, good doctors are hard to come by with a government funded health system (not to mention the wait times!) but at least its paid for and just about everything is expensive as hell compared to living in Texas. Its a good thing I'm in superb shape and health. Its true, no one really likes Americans except other Americans and whatever country's ass we are saving or supplying aid to at the moment. Canada has a very large inferiority complex when it comes to America. Most all of their television programming is from the states or an attempted knock off and we all watched the olympics... lol. Canadians are friendly people for the most part, just don't tell them you're from America or rub it in their face. Edmonton is definitely no Calgary but it has its perks; the summer festivals are a great time and there is plenty of outdoor recreation despite being so far from the mountains. I have yet to experience the winter there, that may change my outlook. FYI- Canada is the largest supplier of imported American oil! Roughly 40%. Mutual respect on both sides of the border people!
#Annie on Nov 05, 2012 :
Oh yeah, thanks Adam for reminding me that since I'm a big fat stupid American my travels to England, Japan, and Brazil that people actually treated me like this too. Oh yeah, and I forgot, so did every gosh darn province in this country including the territory of Labrador did as well. Just kidding! Even in Quebec people were warmer then here. I've never felt so unwelcomed in my life until I came here. So me and my little group of friends of immigrants and newfies will just sit and draw another tally on our cell wall (hypothetically speaking) until we are allowed to leave this place. Sure you may find riches here, but riches don't usually lead to happiness and that is what a ton of us new commers are finding out. And yes, I am an American, and I've traveled to more parts of Canada then most of the people in this city I've met.
#Adam on Jul 07, 2012 :
First of all, Americans are hardly welcomed anywhere. Secondly, the doctors are not useless. Some are, but for every useless Canadian doctor there are at least 10 American doctors who are equally as useless. You're bound to run in to useless people everywhere. The education system in Edmonton is above average. Wages in Edmonton are above average. Wait times for things like MRI's and other medical services are high, but they are coming down as the Provincial Government is planning on putting more money into health care. Sales tax is 5%. Gas is cheaper than most other places in Canada. Lot's of festivals and events all year. Edmonton has a great culture, and has harsh winters and terrible drivers (lol). But overall, it's not a bad place to live.

As a recent immigrant from the states to Edmonton, I just want everyone to know that Americans are not really welcomed there. And the Doctors are useless. I'll take America and it's problems back in a heart beat.

I am US citizen who is desired to want to move to Canada because of USA is pro-corporate while Canada and Europe are pro-99%. I will paid more for similar work compared to USA. Plus, I get universal health care as setoff of higher taxes. Did you know that IRS can tax you even when you live abroad? That's why Tea Partiers want to abolish income taxes to benefit 1% in expense of 99%. I should renonuce my US citizenship because of this.
