#To all women bashers on Jul 25, 2014 :
As a female minority in T.O., I would say this is a pathetic article.Women are people, not receptacles for your tiny d*cks you misogynistic, fist pumping, popped collar douchebags. This is one of the worst articles I’ve ever read.

How incredibly sexist and douchey of you. Not surprised no woman wanted the time of day with you or your misogyny. Maybe Toronto women have standards and are happy with who they are and don’t need assholes like you telling them otherwise. Or hey! Maybe they’re not all in to men. Stop assuming you deserve a woman simply because you’re a man and maybe women will be more likely to head your way. Just a helpful life tip. It’s 2014. Grow up. Evolve or suffer a lonely life. It's not our fault if you can't relate to a woman in Toronto.

Maybe if you stop staring at our cleavage and posterior will women give you a second chance of interacting with your pathetic scumbag person.
#Enes Custovic on Jul 24, 2014 :
Why are there so many comments about the women, I just masterbate myself to sleep.

Probleme solved!
#Sunil L on Jul 24, 2014 :
It's been five mnths & i cant find a job here i have an Engineering degree from my home counry but the school said i had to complete GD 12 as a mature student , now wasting the first years of my life retraining

my savings are eating away because i cant apply for welfare but even if i applied for welfare i would be looked down upon by these racist, sexist and stuck up Canucks
#Gay Lesbo on Jul 20, 2014 :
At least 50% of female Toronto inhabitants are man-hating closet lesbos. Be forewarned immigrants. What is worse than a racist drunk redneck on moonshine?

Lesbo feminatsis and their man-hating agenda
#TorontoLoveWays on Jul 18, 2014 :
Frankly I think Toronto sounds like paradise if you are into same gender love - that way you avoid the pitfalls of
what the other comments are saying.
#Peak Decline on Jul 16, 2014 :
Toronto is not a city for men. Johnny Trick is right on spot with his points. All married men should read his comments.

The only dating going on in Toronto is the illegal type, like the ones Jennifer Mason, a 28 year old teacher did with the 15 year old student. A bunch of perverted and deranged women live in Toronto. SAVE YOUR SONS FROM THOSE AWFUL FEMYNISTS!
#Rodger on Jul 16, 2014 :
Here's is some other helpful hints..

I haven't been on here in awhile so sorry for my ridiculously late response towards the people asking for my help.

Neighborhoods like the good areas (which is nice, safe and very quiet so there's a large flight attendant population due to the proximity of the airport) have studios from $750 on up (think the average price is closer to $900). - it takes 30-80 minutes by public transport if you've been blessed with a speedy teethed and no delays. My old roommates found their $600 A MONTH studio in cheaper location, in a private home not that close to the city nor is it train accessible - no train stop just buses (or a car if you drive).

To live close to the city is to pay more unless you luck out and normally the luck is finding an apartment in a private home or someone who owns a small building and normally you find these on Craigslist (you seriously have to check this everyday at least twice a day and KNOW HOW TO SPOT FAKE/SCAM ROOMS AND APARTMENTS). where my old roommates found their $600 studio. Also busy areas in neighborhoods have fliers up with rooms/apartments for rent so that is helpful too. Another option is living in outer areas. My riend and I went to restaurant last night and saw fliers for apartments from $1000 (1 bdrm) to $1700 (2 bdrm) in nice areas. And the 2 bdrm was real nice with parking included (I think all the listings had parking included). My friend's apt (which I pretty much live there now haha) is $1300 a month and it's a nice apartment, spacious with an intercom system (useful for keeping out people selling belief systems because they will buzz every apartment several times and wait for 10 minutes before taking a hint) and street parking (he owns a car so street parking is FREE, just a little harder to find spots sometimes). Again, this is a good area (which is more family oriented) so the same apt in anoter area (I don't know why everyone insists on being in the high end but oh well haha) is probably AT LEAST $2500, easily $3,000. The only people I know that have apartments in the upmarket areas are there because their company pays their rent (2 friends from further away live in reasonable area where apts are at least $2500). Everyone else who wants to be close to the city without paying the high rent Gas is cheaper too in some areas I heard..
The complaints about having to pay for parking, rude people everywhere, over crowded that's city life! Yes, there are parts that will drive you crazy too where traffic is horrible, sidewalks are extremely congested near the public transport and people *groups* will cross the street on green, not caring about street lights). But people are nicer and the neighborhoods are quieter with FAR LESS RATS and it's cheaper overall (from apartments to grocery shopping - stores in fancy areas was charging $6.69 for an item I can get at plain stores for $4.50). There are cheaper alternatives IN the city like 99 cent store and discount clothing stores that you see around. Hell you can buy lunch in some joints for less than 3 bucks - the experience known as the dollar pizza - 2 slices of cheese with a canned drink (like Sprite) $3.it's just not healthy haha. But beware - these places are crowded. For healthier options that cost a bit more, but still affordable and in the city? other joints (crowded too but not so bad in the morning or an hour before they close).

Also to the guy who claims if you drink don't move to the city ?? Hahaha wow..how about this, if you constantly drink in the city, or want to do all your nightlife experiences consider going BROKE sooner than you expect unless you know the really affordable spots to go to, but even still the city has way more to offer than just bars and if you don't find anything else to do other than getting drunk at a bar I feel bad for ya...I really do. And this is coming from someone who doesn't drink. Some people may not know this but city life has free events that take place every weekend (sometimes weekdays too) throughout ALL the areas (not JUST the city). Events like art shows, concerts, festivals, comedy shows and more.

Oh also to those looking at cheaper areas - downtown is pretty much similar to other cities areas as far as rent goes, especially in bigger areas.

As far as utilities go, depends on how much you use of course. But $300 dollars for electricity? I guess if you had the a/c or heat going everyday for hours...sheesh. I would invest in a good fan in the summer as well as good insulation for different seasons, and use a space heater (when needed since these can increase your bill too - we have 2, one in the living room and 1 in the bedroom, on top of using an electric blanket so it's not bad) during the winter. And if you have a tablet/computer I would ditch the cable and get internet streaming for low dollars a month if you can (I'm sure you've been told that before haha).
#Rodger on Jul 16, 2014 :
In response to an earlier comment...

I know people here who are earning minimum wage per hour and can still afford to live near the city and commute, albeit three to a room. Questions like "Can I afford this" or "Can I afford that" are really silly. In this place, what you earn you spend. If you earn better, you spend more and go out more. I take home reasonable amount for my main job and for that can afford monthly rent, Yearly travelcard 1-3 and enough money to go to the pub/bar/club once a week, stopped smoking a packet of cigarettes a day, buy food, and drink maybe 2 bottles of water and 2 bottles of soda a week, plus save money for an annual holiday in the country. If you make more than that, you will still spend it, but you will perhaps live in outer area, and go out to shops more often. You spend what you earn, and if you are on minimum wage you learn to live frugally but you will still survive because here is an ok city and average in the world and you will scrimp and scrape to ensure you have enough to pay the bills just to stay here, even if it means having to take the bus instead of the car to work, or going to the disco less often (heaven forbid!). If you are a 'normal' person like me, who doesn't mind sharing a bedroom, likes a coffee and a icecream and the occasional takeaway meal and to live not more than 75 minutes from work, then $3,000 (after tax) would be more than enough (and anyone saying otherwise here is winding you up). If you enjoy good quality cakes and Michelin-starred restaurants and getting taxis and going to the cinema or insist on Chateauneuf du Pape instead of supermarkets own plonk then of course, you will need more. It's all relevant. Some tips though to save money: buy your electronics abroad and bring in as many smartphones as you can legally carry, and when you run out, take a cheap flight to another cheap country and buy more (you'll make the money back from the flight after a box or two). If you need furniture, look at places like the internet for free things people no longer work. Use charity/thrift shops for your clothes, you would be amazed at what some people throw away, you can pick up designer clothes barely worn for peanuts. And if you are male, and relatively good looking, and still are finding it hard to make ends meet, do not completely turn your nose up at doing the odd bit of gogo dancing/stripping, many discos in the city particularly the busy end have strip nights and there isn't such a negative connotation to it as there may be in your other countries, $300 a night would not be unusual per night though do be careful, this is not for the naïve and don't do anything that could put you in an uncomfortable state, don't agree do anything more than dancing. Just don't make it your entire earner even if you're making more money at that than at your main 9-to-5 job, or else you get sucked into the lifestyle. I've seen it happen to friends I work with. Use it as a top-up if you are finding it hard making ends meet. Be professional about it, set yourself up as your own business if possible and ask for full pay without deductions, and pay your own taxes (and yes, pay tax on it, you may find you're the only one doing it but stay legit and you will always feel in control and never looking over your shoulder). You can occasionally find gogo-dancing classes on online deals, they can be a great investment if you have no experience. But anyhow, I digress. Hopefully, you won't need to do any of this and you will be able to make ends meet on your normal income. But if not, you at least know you have this to fall back onto. Enjoy the city. It's dirty, it's an eye-opener, and it can be very very expensive, and you will probably never save any money, but you will have a ball, an you will never, ever, ever want to leave. Nor want to. I've been here 5 years and was only going to be visiting for three. I work in the City by day as a call centre operator, make $21,000 a year which means after tax and Insurance I take home a reasonable amount per month, and on top of that maybe appear in online videos four or five times *a month*, bringing my monthly income higher. And, with that, I have a very nice life and can afford to go out quite a lot, shops and discos at least once a week. And I don't even have a rich close friend! (I don't even have a poor one, so, if you're looking and have plenty of money, look for the dancer in the city with the Bambi tattoo on their thigh and the pierced bicycle helmut, haha....only joking, I'm happy as I am)
#Rodger on Jul 16, 2014 :
In answer to an earlier post..

Another option is to move to the quieter places and commute into the city. The only downside is the expensive
train fares and some people say over crowding occurs.

Like any city you can live cheaply if you're prepared to make some changes to the way you live ..

1. SHARE Housing
If you can be flexible and don't mind sharing your personal space ..
Sleep 2 to a room and that will save a huge amount of money..

2. Don't bother with fancy smart phones and expensive phone and internet plans ..
Just buy outright a simple semi smart phone and go on a pre paid plan that way there's no bill shock
at the end of the month.

3. Don't have a car .. who needs the hassle or expense

4. Don't get into having expensive internet and satellite TV at home .. you don't need it ..

5. Cook and eat your meals at home .. that will save you a fortune

Here has so many free places you can enjoy, parks, gardens, lakes, museums, historical sites, just walking the streets
can be fun..

If you're rich you can live in a $100 Million mansion in the high end district and have a fabulous life

If you're broke don't let that stop you enjoying your life .. have loads of fun for free .. enjoy in the face that your lifestyle
only costs $15-20 a day to support ..

LOVE YOUR LIFE and remember Happiness comes from inside within.. having money does help of course..
#Alfred on Jul 16, 2014 :
For Pia and others asking for genuine feedback, please ignore the haters. My strong suspicion is that they have never even visited Perth, let alone lived here. Much of the vitriol looks like a bizarre mish-mash of abject negativity gleaned from like minded malcontents and sensationalist newspaper articles. Trust me, no one EVER paid $1M for a 2 x 1 asbestos house 30 min from the city unless it was on 2 acre block with sub-division approval for 10 town houses.

As for jobs, WA still has the lowest unemployment rate of any state. Cost of living is up there but allow me to quote from the NATSEM (National Center for Social & Economic Modelling) September 2013 review - " Sydney is the most expensive capital city with the typical basket of goods costing $68,023 per annum.
Adelaide has the lowest cost of living, cheaper by $4,476 per year compared to Sydney. Darwin
and Canberra are similar to Sydney with respect to their cost of living. Melbourne has a $2,139
discount compared to Sydney. Hobart is the second cheapest capital city, only marginally more
expensive than Adelaide. Perth and Brisbane sit in the middle of the capital city cost of living
comparison."

this place offers a great lifestyle that generally revolves around being outdoors. Lots of open space. The climate is very good, although I do agree it can get a tad too hot at times in summer. There is a burgeoning cafe and small bar scene but we still lag behind other major towns. Likewise, the arts scene continues to go from strength to strength but we aren't London or New York, nor pretend to be.

People are certainly parochial and still suffer (albeit to a lesser extent these days) from the old us and them thing with the other places. But hey, cut us some slack, we are a long way away. Unfriendly we are certainly not, in fact visitors often remark that this town still has a touch of the big country town about it.

All that is not to say our town doesn't have it's problems like any city of large population has. Crime, poverty, racial tension, traffic jams all live here as well. But to dwell on these negatives and let them cloud your judgement brings me back to my initial premise. I'm convinced a lot of the posts here are written by internet warriors who delight in yanking the proverbial chain. Some of the spelling and grammar might give you a clue
#Alfred on Jul 16, 2014 :
I disagree jerry, from your perspective in regards to being sent here yes, they are negative comments which are valid. However, the comments indicate that people are waking up and not just hypnotising themselves into a false sense that everything here is normal. Things here are very far from normal; our elections are rigged as no person with any sanity would ever vote for the current idiot, unless of coarse the entire place is completely and utterly insane which is probably also true. I'm very sorry for your situation, possibly request a transfer to elsewhere, these places are actually livable financially, the people are not all hostile aggressive yokels, the drinking water isn't riddled with brain destroying carcenagens (probably the source of the problem in this town) and the **** of these locations are not entirely motivated by self interests. Much healthier places to be in my opinion, both physically and psychologically. Best of luck, and may god be with you on your journey through hell -)
#Alfred on Jul 16, 2014 :
Literally having an aneurism from laughing reading the comments. All funny because they're all so true lmao. The **** commissioner's son runs his own illegal clandestine pharmaceutical empire in downtown suburbia next to little primary school kiddies, then one day his little meth lab goes KABOOM and almost nukes us all out of existence... And he's still the *** comissioner.

The Transport ****** goes on a drunken crash bandicoot, destroying innocent peoples motor vehicles parked on the street, almost catapulting his car into various suburban homes which could have killed many people in the process, and then he attempts to justify this behaviour by jumping on the mental health bandwagon. This is all after coming back from a luxury holiday in fire island using taxpayer funds.. And he's still the Transport ****.

Perth people are so cognitively challenged that they simply accept all of this as *normal*
#Walter on Jul 13, 2014 :
Toronto is in a doomed province. Ontario receives more federal aid than the rest of provinces which is why Alberta dislikes Ontario.

The only reason I know of as to why Canada brings in so many immigrants is because the immigrants life savings are used to fuel the economy of Canada. Would Canada bring in 300,000 refugees with zero savings or 300,000 immigrants with money and educational skills? It's all about money.

Toronto is like a city in a 1st world country with a 3rd world economy.
#Chan on Jul 13, 2014 :
My opinion of Toronto born and raised women is based on my personal experiences and observations as well as those of many other Canadian males whom I happen to know in Toronto.

I’ve never denied that I’ve been rejected many times by women in Toronto only due to the fact that I was not making enough money, did not own an upscale condo and owning a few fancy cars like the Maseratis, Lamborghini, Ferarris 100k+ cars.

And that’s a prerequisite for any male in Canada who wants to enter a dating pool in Toronto. You won’t even be considered dating worthy for a female Toronto career woman if you don’t make 10Ks a month after tax, do not own an upscale condo/house and a fancy car.

These are my facts and they do hold their own ground. The Toronto born women are raised to work in the business sector and public sector, and they have higher standards and rude behaviour than a foreign women.

Never look back and leave Toronto if you aren't going anywhere in your career despite your qualifications and experience. Remember, for every qualified job application denied, another "independent" Toronto escort, I mean career woman is given the job becauz she could swallow and/or stir up conflict with average men in the workplace.

The government and state loves to put men in those private prisons.
#Respect women on Jul 12, 2014 :
I'm laughing my ask off bcoz some men are too misogynist to get laid.

Toronto women have more experience, education and healthy lifestyles than foreign counterparts.

I once dated this steaming hot 38 year old AngloToronto woman. She taught me to respect women and never to treat them like objects or damage their reputation.

Toronto women might be a challenge for the impaired, but once you get that hottie in bed, her holes are very tighter and cleaner. We have universal healthcare and the women take care of their health.

Probably some of these foreign guys hate it that Toronto women are better in bed than their oppressed women. Toronto women are hotter, healthier and independent!

Respect women in Toronto & maybe you will finally get laid losers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#johnny trick on Jul 12, 2014 :
if you are man i suggest that you stay where you are in the world, not because i don't want you here, but depending on where you are from that could also be a factor, but that's not the point.

#I'm Out Of Here on Jul 11, 2014 :
Well Toronto posters, you have done yourself a disservice, I thought you would be positive ambassadors, a good town with good people with cheerful personalities but alas, the comments posted here tell another story. No one is attracted to the type of personality that is finding refuge on this page. Goodbye Toronto posters..
#Pat on Jul 11, 2014 :
Natalia's comment is proof of the problem of many people in Toronto - or the "culture" there. The atmosphere is cold, soulless but also blind. Telling people to "leave Toronto" is one of the characteristics of the ignorance in Toronto, because they just cannot see. They don't have "it". When people voice out and complain, maybe it's because they see the problems and at the same time, they just know how much potential the place really has (or once had), and where it really should be at. PASSION and care. So don't tell people to just "leave Toronto" because they are actually AWAKE and doing good by wanting things better as a whole. They want change. Saying "feel free to leave" doesn't cut it anymore. By the way, look at Toronto. You'd have to be insane or are wearing rose-tinted glasses not to see that there are many problems and brokenness in Toronto. For a first-world city, it is broken and neglected - and all those decades of taxes/profit have been going elsewhere. Stop being a sheeple and don't settle for mediocrity. And either ask real Torontonians and let those who were born and raised here do the talking. Thanks Natalia for the example.
#Natalia on Jul 11, 2014 :
Blake and Alex,

If Toronto’s so terrible, why are the complainers staying? do us all a favour and leave Toronto and make the city a better world class venue.

Seriously these whiners blame other people for your own failures/issues.
Some of these men clearly never had a real conversation with an independent woman before.

When we avoid eye contact, it is usually because men have been leering at us as if we are objects who only exist for men to use. Sorry men, but Toronto women are the world's smartest, most attractive women on the planet. If you are those losers who look for foreign brides, knock yourselves out you sex tourist.

Good riddance that Harper is going to ban prostitution and foreign travel laws. Men are nothing but losers and scum. Our Caucasuian womens buttholes are cleaner than the rants spewed on this hate filled misogynist forum.
#Pat on Jul 11, 2014 :
This is disgusting. That there are still people out there saying how Toronto (or Canada) doesn't have the birthrate to support and maintain itself and needs high immigration. One word: BRAINWASHED. The real issue is corruption and maintenance of money/taxes. If there was focus, progressiveness and actual maintenance of money/taxes/resources, then there wouldn't be the need for a high immigration rate. This has been going on for 25 years now and it is EXCESS. There are real first-world places and countries where the population is much lower yet it is really progressive and quite wealthy there because of proper management of taxes/money. All in all, it is simply RACISM - as in exploiting the third world as a means of cheap labour and using them to be consumers as well. This is still slavery like the time when West Africans were rounded up and brought to the Americas. Think about it: If Toronto (or any city/country) was really rich and advanced, then they wouldn't need to talk about and have high immigration. It would be far from thought.

Crikey! peoples take it easy, relax .. this is the only city I've found on numbeo where there's nasty comments flying around...
Also, it gives the inhabitants of Toronto a bad name because it shows a character flaw.. an unpleasant personality...

Actually Toronto isn't as expensive as Australian cities... I know there was that terrible incident that happened a year or so ago
set in Toronto..

Gold Diggers...
But I think the key is to be careful with relationships whether it's with a man or woman - the gold digger
can occur anywhere in any place...

Personally I like being single and I have had my time in the sun (as so to speak...) so now I am happy to
find pleasure with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake .. that's what does it for me .. or a tasty meal for an affordable price..

The prices mentioned in the post for costs of living is still around 40% cheaper than Australia ..
actually it may be even more when compared to Melbourne, Sydney, Perth.

1. Forget about falling in love, learn to love the delights of food and culture instead..
2. Be glad Toronto isn't as expensive as other comparable western cities
3. Learn to find enjoyment and pleasure in the magic of life .. gardens, rivers, parks, the seashore, the city,
4. get some interesting hobbies
4. become a songwriter or smartphone app developer

MIN WAGE:

11$HR

UNEMPLOYMENT RATE: 15-25%

AVG price of HOUSE DETACHED : 540,000$ +

AVG PRICE OF CONDOMINIUM : 275,240$+

AVG RENT OF 1 MONTH 1 BEDROOM : 1,075$ PER MONTH

Don't be fooled by the PR on TV. Toronto is a expensive city and jobs which pay over min. wage are scarce.

There are many overseas cultures where making money, making friends and meeting and dating quality single women come easily.

Outside Toronto, quality available women are the NORM and more abundant! If you are a single male with a professional career, right now there are millions of feminine, sweet, caring, lovely, approachable, modest, down-to-earth women all over the world right now who see YOU as GOLD and are seeking YOU!

But this is not publicized in any positive light in Toronto, due to its taboo and politically incorrect nature. That's why it's such a big secret even though it doesn't have to be.

Toronto depends on millions of educated immigrants to fill the pockets of the immigration lawyers, paper pushers and the government public sector class. What you receive as an immigrant are discrimination, lack of qualified jobs and radical femynism.

Find somewhere else to migrate. If you are able-bodied move to Alberta and work in the tar sands, if you are an entrepreneur migrate to the world class cities in the USA. I'm serious. As a Canadian who plans to leave Toronto in a few years, you will find a better work life, love life and social life outside of Toronto.

The housing bubble and mass immigration is the ECONOMY of Toronto.
#TomTom on Jul 01, 2014 :
Gosh, reading the postings on here makes me realise some have some real chips on their shoulders.

Surely Toronto can't be THAT BAD !!

I get the picture .. the main gripes seem to be with overseas immigration (mostly from India and China) into Toronto,
the high cost of housing and the general affordability of living in this location.

Also there's a lot of comments about gender and political issues which come across somewhat sad ..
(the writer may have a point to make but it gets lost with the repeated postings of the same arguments...)

Basically, reading about Toronto here is a turn off .. maybe that was the author's intention ... make it sound so bad
that no one wants to come here and that way immigration reduces down and the existing Toronto people can have the city
for themselves.

Anyway, please lift the spirit of new posts and let's see a little more levelled viewpoints...
#Anon on Jun 27, 2014 :
Liberal political correctness plays an extremely important role in Toronto society and in the Ontario Liberals's control over its population.

Political correctness reduces and limits the number of words in the English language, and removes words used to describe rebellion or independence (with the ultimate goal being to remove citizens' ability to think anti-liberal thoughts).

Interestingly, the Ontario Liberals works to form a language around itself rather than naturally accepting and assuming the language of the people that make up the country. In this way, language is used as yet another mechanism of mind control on Canadian citizens.

Removing a nation's original language serves to reduce the importance of a nation's past.

Languages develop over centuries, and are deeply intertwined with culture and history.

Redefining and forcing a language on Torontonians, as was often done in the postcolonial era, denies that society its individuality.

The Ontario Liberals meets this goal with great efficiency in censoring free thought with the aide of the public sector union mafia and public school boards.
#Tralve on Jun 27, 2014 :
Canada needs immigrants & their life savings for lining the pockets of overpaid public sector

Immigrants' savings are used to pay for the wages of online government trolls who equate criticism of Toronto as misogyny

People are waking up and finding out the culprits of the empire.
#Holy Crap on Jun 26, 2014 :
What's with these weird comments about women/men in Toronto? I have a feeling that someone very, very bitter is trolling with multiple accounts.

Toronto is expensive, I wouldn't move there without a good job already set up. At the very least $5,500/month income for 2 people. It's a city full of things to do! Lots of restaurants, music, art, hockey games, etc. The social scene there can be/is vibrant. Hugely multicultural. There is, and will be racism everywhere, including Toronto. Don't get your head into knots about it, find your niche of good people to hang out with. Toronto has just about everything, and people from every country in the world live there.
If you don't like living in a small space surrounded by millions of people, don't move there.

Again, I don't know what the deal is with this page's comments, but it's a great city to move to if living in a more diverse business and arts oriented place is your interest.
#Harriette on Jun 26, 2014 :
Yes, because only men and misogynists are capable of realising there is an extreme gender bias. And of course there can't be more than one person experiencing discrimination.

You're delusional, Christina and Jeff. Or should I baselessly assume you're the same person for being blind to the misandry and/or not exeriencing it.
#jeff on Jun 26, 2014 :
Wow,

This whole thread sounds like the it was written by the same misogynistic loser. I moved to Toronto 6 years ago for school. when we had a hard time finding work, I was still able to survive on about $200 per week but it was stressful. I hate the weather here but overall its a pretty affordable place for the size. I only have a bachelors degree and I make $35,000 a year and I'm quite comfortable.
#Christina on Jun 24, 2014 :
Dear Blake:
You are confused. Any city where women can think for themselves would seem this way. You have mistaken your intense sexual frustration, social ineptitude, and poorly masked misogyny and anti-Semitism for the faults of others. Thank god nobody is having sex with you. I suggest talking to the women of Toronto with genuine interest and respect. Of course, you may be incapable of respecting independent, attractive and healthier women.
#Alex on Jun 22, 2014 :
I downgraded my career from a legal professional in Asia to working as a cashier after not finding a job for my first 3 years in Toronto.

My friends suggested I relocate to Ottawa, Calgary or even the States, but Toronto is a trap which is difficult to escape. I used up my life savings of 40,000$ dollars in a year, and no employer accepts my law degree from one of the well know universities in the UK.

Never in my thirty years of existence have I had to compromise my educational skills and working skills to work for a wage which barely covers rent and TTC.

An employer is more likely to hire an "oppressed" Caucasian female with a high school degree over a male professional or even a non-white professional.

The above sentence should answer a lot of your questions. I'll relocate someday, but the rent keeps on increasing every year and everything else under the power of the Lieberals are increasing ( hydro, fuel, food, business costs) saving an extra dime is hard but the 1% of top income earners are laughing all the way to the bank while normal men and minority women have to be treated like 2nd class citizens.
#Blake on Jun 16, 2014 :
noticed a lot of queries are coming from male Arabs and Indians....guys...when you do arrive in Toronto, you'll probably have more respect by living in the middle of the woods....because Toronto discriminates against males and Arab and Indian (brown) males are at the lower rung of the male hierarchy.

Lots of hiring personnel are white women who hate Arabs with a chip on their shoulder. Any form of male dominance is sexism and assault in Toronto society.

Do you really want to be treated like the lowest of 2nd class citizens jobless, while the Arab and Indian wives have to sell their bodies for money to the Jooish pimps?
#Facts on Jun 13, 2014 :
Canadian gov't is scamming millions of people and ruining their livelihoods with their false advertisements about Canada being a land of opportunity. It really isn't opportunity, maybe Alberta, but that is because of the tar sands.

Don't move to Toronto if you are middle to upper class in your home country. You will lose your savings and human rights by living in Toronto. Caucasian women are the number one protected group in Toronto, and they have all the rights and protection by the government.

White women are in the same minority group, but with higher preferences for jobs, legal advice and leniency in crimes.
#Jeremy on Jun 12, 2014 :
I know many of you guys look for jobs in Toronto. Check out who are hiring and in agreement with the other posters, mostly minimum wage jobs. You probably believe that $12 hour is a lot of money, which may be the case in some countries, but rent is on average 900/30 days= 30$ a day for a small cockroach and vermin infested apartment in a depreciated building in a low income neighbourhood.

The avg working hours are 40 hours a week, and if you earn more than 25,000$ a year, you get taxed higher.

The best paying jobs are in finance, service sector and education, but with feminism taking hold of Western politics, men from traditional countries will find it cumbersome to abide by the sensitivity training, and honestly, these professional class of Toronto females are no different from escorts, in fact, some of these women work as escorts as a side job. Females are protected by the government and males are demonized in Toronto for simply being male.

Toronto is okay with gays, lesbians and emasculated men.
#Smart One on Jun 10, 2014 :

HARRIS:

Canada is a huge country, and Toronto is a small city in landmass--but a majority of social and economic issues. Those $12/hr jobs do not suffice a decent standard of living in Toronto.

The minimum earnings to live comfortably in Toronto is around $5,000 a month after-tax. The more you earn, the more you are taxed because the feminists keep on whining about their abortions and STD medical care.

Rent is at least $700 a month for one person, and a house in Toronto is going higher and higher because of greed and speculation in the housing market.

Culturally speaking, I assume you might be male, you will be shocked to witness how liberal the city of Toronto is socially, but be careful about trying to land a date in Toronto. A mere approach to a holier-than thou college woman/independent single woman is termed sexual harassment and a criminal record is a probability---criminal records hinder employment success. Any Toronto woman who grew up in Toronto and received her college education is 50% likely to hold radical feminist ideas, the number increases if the woman is non-religious and/or white.

No whistling or suggestive remarks. You probably have heard on the news about the Sloot Walk. This feminist movement was a response to a police officer's suggestion... can't explain it here.

You might have a better economic and social life in the Western provinces than Marxist infested Toronto.

If you are an alpha male and refuse to splurge your hard earned money on an entitled Toronto woman, she will simply leave you for a dumber male who is willing to spend more money. She will claim you make her feel worthless and that her ex boyfriend took her out every weekend to a 400$ a night hotel, than took her for 120$ meals, and spent 200$ in fuel, 60$ in parking.. This is what a Toronto woman wants, her idea of romance has everything to do with you losing money, let me repeat this, a Toronto woman’s IDEA of romance, Is YOU , spending all of your money on her, like she is in some kind of princess fantasy, while she lobbies with feminists to force quotas in hiring more women (Less jobs for men because a man's job is taken)

It’s outrageous, and i’m just an average guy which means i’m like MOST MEN., and this is my experience, which means the experience of the average Toronto man, since i refuse to do this, i stay single. You are looking at 25,000$ a year minimum to maintain a relationship with a Toronto Woman, for a 6 out of 10, Now… for each notch on the 1-10 scale expect to spend an additional 10,000$. Now, when she divorces you and leaves you, expect to lose at least about 250,000$ for her half of the house, and another 30 or so for a car + 20% of salary, and at least 50,000$ is lawyer fees she racks up on you, while she is busy sucking someone else off and laughing about. it…. In the end all Toronto men end up paying an average of 20,000 a year minimum to have a Woman. An entitled woman with no loyalty, or respect for the man except what she can extract of monetary value until the man is drained, and than the woman leaves for a man who is fresh and ready to be conned, as he has waited in line for your woman all a long, theoretically speaking. Are you starting to get the picture yet??

Feminists take away men jobs, and expect displaced men to pay the bills.
#Post secondary on Jun 03, 2014 :
at Eenz:(Quote) This is one of the reasons why canadians value their post secondary education so much, because it is a golden opportunity to meet someone you might want to spend the rest of your life with as much as it is about the education. Outside of work and schooling, you will be HARD pressed to find a life partner unless you frequent the loser hangouts (bars, clubs).

50+ % of post secondary institutions in Toronto are left leaning Marxist feminist learning institutions. Far from pre-1980s when hook-ups were legal in Canada. You are right about the exaggerated sexual harassment charges, unfortunately, any "unwanted" approaches by males to a female on many campuses constitute sexual harassment these days.

On the brighter things in life, p4p is quite cheap in Toronto.
#Eenz on May 30, 2014 :
Toronto is a great city if you've got the dough or rich parents. Otherwise it's the same story as everywhere else, wage slavery and high taxes.

The taxes are ridiculously high, there are no manufacturing jobs, and the culture is one that rewards doing work with words, not numbers or materials. Anyone that does things with their hands and their mind is looked down upon, and it is quite a toxic environment for the youth.

Otherwise the summers are really nice! The winters are terrible and the infrastructure is crumbling though.

The city is great for minorities though, with enclaves of yellow skinned people, brown skinned people, and other little cultural enclaves that the Anglo folks don't frequent. You can wear all the shishkebabs on your head you'd like and no one will give a darn.

The city is divided into many, many divisions according to race, social standing, skin tone, religion, you name it. When you couple this with the fact that the people are so cold to each other you get a recipe for one sterile city to live in.

Overall, Toronto is a cold city both literally and figuratively, and is a place that will infect you with envy, jealousy, low self esteem, and you might go insane if you are out of work for a prolonged period of time because you don't get social contact outside work very often.

I would stay away from this place unless you're a highly educated professional that will rake in the moneys and not give a darn about the other stuff.

Oh, and a word to the young men out there... it's not your fault your sex life is terrible, it's the women. The women of Toronto are a major problem, and don't you never ever ever look down on yourself as a loser because you're not getting any. The women are cold as the weather. If you think you can come into town and live like you're in Kiev or Warsaw or some European city, you're going to be unpleasantly surprised. Do not approach women on the street, they will think you want to rape them. Do not talk to women in the store, they will think you want to rape them. Do not talk to women on the subway, they will think you want to rape them. Do not approach women AT ALL unless you have a REASON to approach them.

This is one of the reasons why canadians value their post secondary education so much, because it is a golden opportunity to meet someone you might want to spend the rest of your life with as much as it is about the education. Outside of work and schooling, you will be HARD pressed to find a life partner unless you frequent the loser hangouts (bars, clubs).

I am done ranting.

feminism is very disruptive to social life.

Onset of feminism caused many feminists to changed the workplace rules, legal system and entertainment in favour of empowered white women.

Employers are afraid to hire males, reject female applicants all because of feminist sponsored
lawsuits.

Bright side- Hookers are a dime a dozen in Toronto, some have Masters Degrees and work as business Managers from 9 to5 and hook at evenings.

Toronto is not a good place to raise a family or to marry. Feminism is partially to blame.
#Anon on May 07, 2014 :
Canadian women have only about 25 percent of the attainment level of men. The gender inequality is starkest in politics, where, judging by the number of female legislators, leaders and cabinet ministers, Canada has closed just 10 per cent of the gap.

Women remain underrepresented in those roles. The reason includes, first of all, the hatred by men against women and rampant sexism. It includes stereotypes that have no impact on how leadership is defined, and because they are women, men dismiss and oppress ambitious Canadian women.

#Frank on Apr 23, 2014 :
The social construct of Toronto culture is on the far-left.

One must support these values while living, working and socializing in Toronto-

1) White middle class women are oppressed by their white middle class husbands.
2) Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than others because the victim class of Marxists, feminists and LGBTQ have been oppressed for billions of years by the white man and the Arabs.

3) If you don't support affirmative action of hiring an unqualified feminist for a management job, you are a racist, misogynist.

4) High taxation is necessary for the benefit of the community.

5) A woman has a right to dress how she wants, even if it is akin to a male exposing his tool (which he should register as a sexoffender because males who show too much skin are predators).

6)Men over the age of 18 are viewed as sexoffenders because men oppress women in a capitalist society.

7) Marxism and Communism are the solution to ending the Patriarchy although Mao, Pol-Pot and Stalin communist regimes resulted in disaster for innocent lives.

THOSE ARE SOME OF THE VALUES IN TORONTO SOCIETY. ANYONE who disagrees with any can lose their job or end up becoming profiled.
#No future here! on Apr 07, 2014 :
Native Torontonian dying to leave Ontario or Canada. Toronto weather is awful most of the year and the high taxes will kill you. Utilities are increasing wildly for next ten years to pay for corruption.

Toronto and Ontario are a pardise only for public sector parasites, who all collect 6-figure salaries (google ontario sunshine list) and benefits to die for including lavish pensions for life starting at age 45-50. Every else must pay for it. Ontario has the highest per capita debt in North America, way higher than california. Subway drivers collecting $110k pensions after 25 years of "work" but I'm not paying for it.

Besides that, the city in many places wreaks of unpleasant stenches and the people are mostly as cold as the weather.

On the plus side, it is very friendly toward gays and also Marxist beliefs, if you are looking that... I am not!
#Shawn J. on Apr 07, 2014 :
The answer is simple for all of those who are upset. Respect Women!

I am a male CEO of an IT company here in Toronto, and that provides me with a great and wide perspective on what people are complaining about. First let me say that Toronto is a wonderful place with many different cultures, and also provides each and everyone of us the opportunity to become our best by having such diversity and challenges to find our true selves in, and to ultimately push harder and obtain our dreams.

I cannot believe that some of you are actually deterring people from moving here; those who are simply trying to obtain to kind of life that we often take for granted - shame on you for being so close-minded.

The root cause of the problem described here as "soo unbearable that you shouldn't move here" is a lack of respect for women. Equality is absolutely important in any society, and just ask some of those wishing to migrate here what life is like without it.

The reality of male figures in the workplace not taking women seriously, or even feeling threatened by them isn't something that is only here in Toronto, its wide spread, and some areas of the globe unfortunately suppress women from "wearing the boots", despite the fact that they may be able to take better strides and much more careful steps that some men are capable of. Seeing a woman do a "man's job" well threatens some men who otherwise have no character outside of the "manliness" of their job description. As such, when a strong woman is among them, the respect for that woman isn't there although it should be.

This root problem compounds outwards in to acts of either defense or complacency by women depending on their inner strength and will power. For example, Diana firming up her rump to pretty much play on the male lack of respect in order to re-balance the scales of fairness in her workplace. It's sad, and i may not be explaining it as well as i could right now, but its the truth.

The answer? Simply start treating women with respect. You'll be surprise how much more work gets done when the negativity that is stemmed from that lack of respect is abolished. Help a woman get where she deserves to be instead of suppressing her, and you'll soon see the greatest behind equality in the form of appreciating and opportunity.

Chivalry is all that is missing.

#Anonymous on Apr 01, 2014 :
Toronto in 2014 should be re-named the city of Misandry.

The city is too tough for a male to live in because every single feminist rights issue is a burden to businesses, workers and society because the feminist movement forces lawmakers to enforce strict laws against "hate crimes against women" & if yu only disagree the feminist movement smears you as a supporter of domestic violence and oppressing women for thousands of years.

The professional workplace is feminist because if any male makes a "sexist", "pre-crime" comment about a feminist's half-nude appearance, the security guards in no time will force you out of the workplace & the company will hand you a pink slip [letter of employment termination].

The feminist hysteria even affects the public education system because a majority of teachers in the public schools are females. The reason is that the males are smeared as predators, and the workplace environment scares males from becoming teachers for that stereotype. The irony of it all is that you keep on hearing countless stories about female teachers getting it on with her students, and feminists deny that and blame the male student for the female teacher's actions.

If youre a dad and you plan on driving your kids to school, good luck, because the security guards at the school will suspect that you are a predator.

Aside from being forbidden to stare at female adult co-workers who dress like a stripper, stereotypes of male teachers and male parents as predators....what makes you think you will be exempted from the misandry? Because you're gay? Welcome to Toronto--the city of ultra-liberalism and feminist.

b4 even considering to move to Toronto, find out about the Ontario Sunshine List of $100k+ a year earners and you will find out the gender, race and orientation which comprises a majority of highly paid earners in Ontario.

IF YOU ARE NOT A WHITE, MIDDLE CLASS, LEFTIST, BI-GENDER Feh-MALE....DO NOT COME TO TORONTO. THE SYSTEM WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE MISERABLE. THE SYSTEM DOES NOT CARE IF YOU WERE A JUDGE IN YOUR HOME COUNTRY, but if you are a fem_nist you will get a chance to work up the ladder.

even a PHD from Asia works as a janitor cleaner but a fe_ist who graduated with a BA in Social sciences is given more opportunity to work as a Manager or high paid public sector worker.

Don\t even get started with the fem_st workplace. No one could dare make a remark about a fem_st co-worker who lacks proper dress taste and decency.

So before our 3rd year, we just decided to pack up and headed south - I live in Texas now, the whole "vibe" is just different. There is a huge diff. between Canada & USA, if you prefer to be somewhere more vibrant and energetic, you have to be in the U.S. - I found it so hard to socialize in Canada, and very difficult to find opportunities.

To all of you immigrants who plan to migrate to Toronto, the system is designed for wage slavery, racism and educating, indoctrinating your children to become wage slaves and pros-titutes for wealthy people.

There aren't that many jobs to suffice a single person, yet suffice a family because cost of living in Toronto is high and rent and housing are based on speculation.

Read any Roosh forum about Toronto and you'd notice how many single men are leaving or considering leaving Toronto to another province or country. The cited reason is the gender fascism which is engrained into the core values of Toronto education, workplace, government institutions, media and society as a whole.

I'd have second options of moving to Toronto if I were you. If you are working in an all-males tech geek environment, say, computer jobs, you will be fine...until that rowdy feminist with a Masters of Feminist Studies tries to take away your job.

I've spent enormous amount of money to firm my butt, and I been horribly wronged by those woman-hating men, but I still love men who will do as I say...you guys who hate us Toronto women, need to man up and confront what's really doing it to you. It must be your pathetic lives.

You men are jealous of Toronto women and hate yourselves.

I love men who are not afraid of receiving orders from a woman. Women are not sluts nor are they in teaching because of your baseless accusations. Only men are players and rapists and child molesters. The stats don't lie.
#Mark Weston on Mar 12, 2014 :
#Leigh,,,,,,,,,,,,,, who gives you moral authority to dictate who women should marry or not? I assume that your response would most likely be calling me a "misogynist", "woman hater' or some other form of playing the victim.

You even posted your drivel of bigotry on a forum for immigrants who wish to migrate to Canada, and you have given those immigrants one reason to stay away from Canada, esp. in Toronto.

What gives? Not enough female immigrants to brainwash in public schools and colleges these days in Toronto?
#Robert on Mar 04, 2014 :
I don't get it.

If most of the manufacturing, IT, customer service and small jobs are going to 3rd world countries, what jobs are left for the immigrants who LEFT THOSE SAME COUNTRIES THE JOBS WERE OFFSHORED TO?

I don't know about you but Toronto has one of the largest unemployment and poverty rates in the entire Canada, with the exception of First Nations reserves which are broken down and have poor living conditions.

Youth unemployment is hovering at 25% in Ontario but if you take into account if the students didn't enroll to costly universities you might find a true youth unemployment of 40% to 50%. I'm not making this up you can research for yourself.

Only those thieves, liars, exploiters, privileged and con-men manage to live in Toronto happily.

Good luck paying $1,000 a month for a bachelors apartment in the mid town uptown area
#Mohan on Mar 03, 2014 :
Toronto is beautiful but a difficult place to survive in, unless you have the money-life is clean, food is good, housing is expensive, banking system ridiculous, and insurance even more stupid and expensive. the key to success is MONEY-
You need about 50,000 $ a year to live a happy moderate life.take about 10% inflation-per year- every member of the family has to work- just in case any one gets 'the pink slip'.

Actually Canada favours the business people- not the employees and workers.however you have to be careful what business you start- or you can loose all your savings-

all in all- you will never be a beggar in india- but I cant be so sure and make the same comment in Toronto.life is a challenge, and a big risk-enjoyable all the same-
#Dude on Feb 23, 2014 :
Toronto is not a place you want to live in. Please do not come. Happy Canadian.
#Juliet on Feb 20, 2014 :
Women have very little idea of how much men hate them.
Marriage as an institution developed from rape as a practice.
All marriage intercourse, even consensual intercourse between a married couple, is an act of violence perpetrated against a woman.
All men are rapists and that's all they are.
To call a man an animal is to flatter him; he's a machine, a useless pervert and rapist who deserves to be locked up for good.
The DNA of a Toronto feminist is superior to those women who wear oppressive traditional costumes. Women have a DNA which is far
more superior than the white males.

Women continue to be oppressed by being paid 65 cents for every male dollar earned, but we as women must never give up to rise
above the white male patriarchy.
#Leigh on Feb 20, 2014 :
Rather, it's the fact that many of them simply think that feminism isn't necessary in modern life. After all, women in Toronto have made great strides in their careers, that we don't need any men in our lives.

White Anglophone men are the oppressors in the patriarchy and we as women must abolish the rights of white Anglophone men before they place us into concentration camps like what the Nazis did to 6 million Jewish people.

#Anonymous on Feb 17, 2014 :
Wow you guys sound so racist and narrow and etc etc. Canada doesn't have a birthrate to support herself without immigration. Immigrants have devalued degrees are kept out of jobs they can work and if raced face racist hiring; they take no jobs from native whites or even "passable" peoples of colour. Last roommate a white Irish man hard a hard time finding work so he left. Yes rent is expensive but it is meditated through access to better transit including hubs to get out to the GTA, Durham, and Hamilton. Minimum wage does suck (cost of living has risen but not the 10.25 in last 4 years or so) but you need to manage YOUR expectations of the unrealizable American dream. Live uptown or York for cheap rent, commute in (takes o oh 30min mostly), and stop salivating over objects and ideas of riches you can't obtain. Bikes are not liberal they are practical. Traffic is mental in some places but not NYC bad. And yes it may not be the best big city in the world but it's ours and we couldn't support anything larger.
#Kaveh on Feb 13, 2014 :
Toronto is a major TRAP for everyone from around the world thinking its a paradise leaving their lives and everything behind coming here with hopes and dreams of a better future, but really its a frozen heaven with laws of HELL! A good advice for the outside readers, check this site www.kijiji.ca and you will find 90% of the jobs are SLAVERY with minimum wage of 10-12$ per hour which at last would not be enough to even survive, much less to enjoy life or save any money. The laws in this country are made by the British, and anyone smart with a "little" knowledge would know how the British have "always" been milking the world and making the world a living hell for others only in order to save a heavenly future for their own nation. All these wars and deceases, poverty in MANY countries are the cause of British government whose path are no different from the times of Pharaohs and the great Pyramids in Egypt. EVERYTHING and I mean "EVERY-THING" is designed by the system, so future couldn't be so friendly for most of us the regular people. I've lived here in Toronto since 1996 and I'm "still a slave". I do not own any houses nor apartments, but who says those who do own any, are their own "actual" properties? Anyone owning any kind of property here in this country know that they're the temporary owners of a somewhat belongings of Queen B'ITTTTCH Elizabeth the W'H'O'R'E's properties which means til their living day they are paying for what they think they own, meaning even after they have paid up in full amount for their house, they still have to pay the property tax EVERY YEAR and if one day you're too old to work like a horse or somehow not able to come up with the money "once", they'd take your house away which means basically all you tried for all your life! In the worst areas and ghetto places in the city the property tax could be a minimum of few Thousand dollars a year, just imagine how much it could be for those fancy big houses after all is paid and done which means its "THEN" a total of 100% property tax (it could easily be 20,000$ to 50,000$ a year and yes most people "DO NOT" even make that money yearly after working 40 hours a week all year round without vacation!). Owing a property is somewhat a bit of your worries, once you're coming with your "children" here for a better life. In high schools girls get pregnant as early as 14-15, boys become gangsters and drug dealers, and that is a true fact about "ALL" areas of the city. Out of 100 kids in schools atleast 50 of them smoke cigarettes if not weed(marijuana) and most definitely half of them (if not all of them) use drugs. When I was in high school back in 97 there was this girl who'd got pregnant for the 3rd time and she wasn't any bad comparing to the ones who were enjoying their gangbang parties while their parents were thinking so different about their kids activities. In west, kids start everything as in their early years but also finish many bad things before late, but MANY won't and their bad habits could end up a way of life for many of them. Insurance starts from 500$ monthly for a student, most kids have cars!!!! I wonder who's blood money their parents had taken back in their countries before they took off with all those millions of dollars rushing towards Canada, but of-course that's what the system wants, first your money, then yourselves. It is almost next to impossible to save a dollar with all the high cost if you're just a working person in this country, but if you do own a business or atleast manage to run a business of some kind, you'll be able to enjoy some of your life or be able to save some money. Its a paradise in summer, a kind of paradise that lasts 3 months barely and again freezes back. Its so unfortunate to be stock in a trap and not have any way out of it, only getting out of it is the hope that remains within our vain which make us try harder and harder and harder. This country is a paradise for those with money to just live and enjoy life the real way, the only way that money could make them all come true, other than that, this country is a result of the designed system that is meant to take men kind for slavery for a good 1000 years to come! Just knowing how America became what it is today (killings of nearly 12 MILLION REAL AMERICAN NATIVES back in 15-16s and taking their lands by killing them and pealing their skin off their heads for the pleasure of white women), you would know Canada's past and future.
#MaryAnn on Feb 11, 2014 :
I like Toronto, but life here is really rather expensive. Especially if we are talking about the prices on property. But what do you want from a big city that attracts so many people? I spent much time on searching my rental property that I could pay. If anyone is interested I found out that at http://toronto.localmartca.com/apartments-condos/ are prices were affordable. I looked through some many classifieds, but it seams to me that it was the best variant for me. I don’t regret.
#Jane on Feb 04, 2014 :
Toronto is the worst big city in the world in which to live. The youth unemployment is 20%. There is no melting pot, its all newcomers from around the world. THe city is too left wing and wastes millions of dollars on stupid things such as bike paths. The cost of living is sky high. The reason the cost of living keeps rising is the nonstop massive immigration into canada (they are coming in to a jobless nation). Toronto is filled with gangs- 150 or more. When it was more white it was a nice city.
#Canadian? on Jan 31, 2014 :
I've lived 23 years in Canada and took me that long to realized the freezing cold weather and multicultural jungle life suck the youth out of me. This is the country for those who are zero in their country otherwise you'll be zero in Canada. Lets list few Major problems with Canada mainly Toronto:

1- Weather: 6 months winter. Never underestimate the power of windchill. Weather in major media are reported without windchill and that's where Canada cheats. Weather is much colder than is reported in winter. It reached -39 in Toronto January 2014 Toronto causing blackouts and some even die in the cold. The numbers in environmental Canada is misleading. Toronto is much colder than is reported. The weather condition and lack of sun is increasing health and mental problems. (Research).

2- No Job security in this country. You'll always compete with new immigrants.

3- No identity. Canada is made of immigrants & refugees from all over the world. What is Canadian and who is Canadian? Try to answer this when you step out of Canada.

4- Health care is careless. Clinics see you as $ not a person. There are many cases doctors select their patients. The secretary simple says we're not accepting patience. You end up with low quality clinics waiting for hours and in many cases a quick fix or even a wrong fix.

5-High taxes. Income tax, goods and services tax, etc. You'll end up losing almost half of the money you've earned over taxes.

6- People are getting crazier, unfriendlier (except those lonely people or perverts),
harassment from homeless in downtown area.
#drew on Jan 28, 2014 :
Unless you are coming to TORONTO with TONS of money or you already have been given a job offer paying OVER $64,000/yr, I strongly advice you NOT TO COME to Toronto. Rent is not cheap anywhere and IF you find somewhat cheaper rent, it is in very bad areas which you would not want to have your kids growing up in such neighbourhoods.
On the other hand, sharing an apartment with 4 or 5 people could possibly make the rent more manageable, but unless you are single and plan to be single for a while, do not put your wife/kids in that situation.
Food, clothing and transportation is extremely expensive and so is going out. Even fast food is terribly over-priced and does not offer you any value for what you pay.
If you are upper-middle class or even middle-class in your home country, please do not come to Toronto. It really isn't worth it to give up your status, lifestyle and peace of mind for the uncertainty of the job market here. Any day someone could be downsized. There is absolutely no job security even if you get a good job. Other activities for families such as services, community recreation for kids/families are really bad quality and definitely NOT what it used to be once upon a time. Traffic is absolutely the worst nightmare and you will need to keep aside a minimum of 2 hours to get to work EACH way. If you have to take the bus/train, add another 2 hours on top of that amount.
How do I know all this? I have lived in Toronto for 25 years and seen the decline first-hand. I came here from India and wish I never did. I would rather raise my children in India where the facilities and amenities are far superior. India is a different country than it was 20 years ago and is definitely a different country than 30 and 40 years ago. India puts Canada to shame these days. In India, the vibe is different. You can be happy and care-free. Canada will suck the life right out of you, trust me. There is no life as such in Canada. As I'm sure you are familiar with the term, "it's a fast life"....that's right, it goes too fast and there is no time to breathe. I could go on forever, but I will stop now. Bottom line---it's somewhat bearable if you are single and have a really high-paying job. Do not come here if you are struggling and/or have a wife and kids. The end!!
#Kenya on Jan 22, 2014 :
Thanks so much for the post. I will definitely be keeping these charts and grafts in mind. We may not want to move to Toronto even more now that we see the cost of living.

#Lauren on Dec 23, 2013 :
Hi, Lucas! You know, everything depends on your personal needs. If you are not going to organize parties every week and spend money in night clubs (that is very expensive lifestyle) and will be mostly cooking at home, not eating in the restaurants each time, $800/month will be enough for you, including accommodation (shared with students), food, transport etc. I can recommend you localmartca.com if you haven’t already found a place for living, we found there my daughters flat when she decided to study in Toronto. There were lots of variants for sharing your apartment with other students to save some money or just single apartments if you are going to rent without sharing it. I hope, it’ll be useful for you.
#Lucas on Dec 20, 2013 :
Hello, Guys

I am planning to arrive Toronto in May 2014 on study visa for 1 year. I have a very limited budget apart of my college fee I will be putting in $10000 i.e. one year expense as per Canadian collage that will be paid to me on monthly installments of around $800/month.People I spoke to says $800 will be enough for me to survive means accommodation (shared with students), food, transport etc. Please suggest me will that be enough? as I do not have more then this money to finance my studies and I guess I will not be able to take part time job even for the first 6 months of my studies.please suggest guys!

Thank you

#Mocha on Dec 17, 2013 :
Good luck newcomers to Canada. As you can see the government is bringing in temporary workers & allowing corporations to pay these workers the wages of indentured servants. Government agents might ask- what does that have to do with Toronto?

The answer is-- if 300,000 Temporary workers are coming into Canada every year and 10% of adult Canadian population and 20% of the youth population can't find jobs, what sense does it make?

Most importantly, Canada's head of state is not the Prime Minister, but the rulers of England. Anyone who lived in former colonies can see that Canada was a land which was inhabited by Aboriginals until the ruling elite class pillaged their lands.

I doubt many people see Toronto as a city to raise a family--the colony is too damn expensive!
#Rebecca on Dec 09, 2013 :
Rent CAN be expensive, I live in a small bachelor apartment downtown with heat/hydro/elec included for $695/mo, have easily managed to find 2 part-time jobs (must be part-time since I also do full time university). I pay pretty much exactly what they say for internet and transportation, and rec/clothing are near perfect on par. As for groceries, those would be bare minimum pricing but not far off if you know where to go. I'm not saying I lead a life of luxury of any means, but for the most part, these are the numbers.
#Surjit Gill on Dec 02, 2013 :
Hello Everyone,

We used to live in Toronto 20 years ago. It was an expensive place to live in terms of accommodation, utilities and every thing else. Around 40 years ago, it used to be affordable place to live with the House prices within reach. But during this time all the planes full of immigrants have been offloading and populating the city. As a result , the rule of Supply & Demand, lot of people, living got expensive and jobs got scarce. Any new comer with out a steady income of $65K/annum can not have a comfortable life. Taxes are 45%.
Good Luck.
#Nicholas on Nov 25, 2013 :
Schoolyard bullying is nothing new, but it's a bit more unusual—and more inexcusable—to see a female teacher making fun of disabled students from Silverthorn Collegiate Institute. The female teacher was the former Vice Principal of Silverthorn Collegiate Institute, Vivian Mavrou. This teacher is currently a Vice Principal of Martingrove Collegiate Institute as of 2013.
According to Ontario Teachers' College records, Vivian Mavrou was certified to teach in Ontario in 1996. Vivian Mavrou's incompetence started to show in the early 2000s while she was a Mathematics teacher at Thistletown Collegiate Institute. Students of her Grade 11 Mathematics class complained about Vivian Mavrou lacking basic arithmetic skills to even complete a question from the curriculum, and some students of racialized groups accused Vivian Mavrou of favoring students based on their ethnic and racial features- a term called discrimination, and an infringement of the Ontario Human Rights Code. The Toronto District School Board (TDSB) is a public government institution, and the organization must uphold the Charter rights and follow the rights of Canadians as outlined in the Ontario Human Rights code.
#Anonymous on Nov 24, 2013 :
Canada is making money like never did,but not the workers,since the eighties everythig starts to go down to the drain, especialy because taxes on people start going up,I came in 1971 I start working minimum salary per hour 1.49$ per hour and unemployment was 2 %, but in those days after 2 years a got the money to buy a house for 27000$(today values is around 600.000)taxes were 2.5% on everything you buy except food form your chek they discount taxes about 5%,today is about 25 %,besides that you pay 13 % on everyting you buy and because the government keeps a cuota of 300.000 new emigrants, and the free trade and globalization,unemployment is been keep artificialy for years around 7 to 7 1/2%,and closure of factories going to be establish outside of Canada,that way people can not ask more money at work,and everything is been up except salaries,is very dificuld to buy a house,now days people buy apartments, they are more affordable,I'm a pensioner, my income is around 1600$ my house is paid,my expenses are 160$ on food a month,property tax are 3200$ a year, insurance car & house 210 % a year,medecines are free when you are a pensioner.transport I pay half price,heat about 800$ a year I keep the temperature at 15 degres celcius.I breeze better,hydro bill is 90$ every 2 monts, water 150 $ a year,some other fees about 300 a year, internet less then 400$ a year,supermarkets,in short whith that money I survive, and still I save some money,it all depend how you manage your finances, I know many people that only expend without making a budget,thats why good salaries are nor sufficient,happens that in Canada you always find part time jobs, and it helps,if you are a family and the wife works,the picture is better,if you are newcomer is dificould but not impossible,it depends if you sacrifice or not,I sacrifice I was young, I work hard at the beginning, actually I have my savings, my house ,my car, and I travel,I save to expend after, I'm very happy,if your country is about the same as Canada,don't come unless you have money,if your country is worst apply and good luck
