wow what an awful place to live. the numbers truly do not reflect how depressing toronto is. i lived there for 2 years and would never, ever go back under any circumstances. traffic, homeless people, everything costs more than any job will pay you, the people are generally rude, the food sucks, the weather sucks, there is truly nothing redeeming about this place.

The after tax salary needs to be changed. The average gross salary is 52k, which leaves 38k in after tax.

Canadian cities might look pretty on the surface but severely lacking in modern infrastructure, which adds to the cost of living.

The economic, financial, and personal finance/cost of living factors mentioned here are so true and long known facts, but I'm going to mention the driving. My goodness, the city and region is one confused mess. The amount of driving done here is equivalent to the driving for the RURAL haha. Not for a city! A real (developed) city is one where places are accessible and there are lots of methods to get around. Toronto and many Canadian urban places have serious growing up to do!

The average net monthly salary after tax is listed here as 5,053.27 CAD. This is not correct, although it is how much an average family would expect to earn with two full-time workers. Perhaps this number has been skewed by IT workers migrating to mid-level roles in the city.

According to the 2016 Canadian census, median after-tax income for Toronto residents was 2,435.83 CAD (29,242 CAD annually). The average annual wage increase has been below 3% during this time.

The median after-tax income in 2022 is LESS THAN 3,000.00 CAD.

Toronto and the region are an equivalent of when a place is declared "Ecologically Dead". It shows even more now in the post-jabs era. Cost of living, wages not aligned with CEO prices, severely bloated housing prices, mass immigration, traffic congestion non-stop, outdated and puny infrastructure, bureaucracy, suffering from the woke disease, etc. Meanwhile, Canada as a whole is beyond emergency alert but it's a place on life support. It doesn't help that its own gov't abuses its citizens and taxes, and ignores their own Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Numbeo is inflating the wages and lowballing the housing costs, to lure people here with false pretenses
Brad on Apr 18, 2022:
A 20-year fixed mortgage doesn't exist. Closest is 25 yr at 8.75% according to ratehub. 10 year is around 4.25%; so 20 year would be at least 7%. Numbeo currently has it at 2.85 for a 20-year fixed mortgage which is wildly inaccurate.

I totally agree with Anonymous on Mar 24, 2022. I have spent yrs before could I enter Canada with 2 master degrees (one from the UK),19 yrs of job experience, my score was not high enough, so I started to learn French and it took me a lot of time and effort to get a high score in TEF Canada exam and in this process I have seen many people from my own country with absolutely no knowledge of English or French just simply entered Canada on a tourist visa and became refugees. Many of them are even rich in their homeland and here they receive monthly salary from the Canadian government. This is sad and deeply disappointing.

Anonymous how dare you be so selfish! If you don't move here you may destroy the plan to have 10 million people in the GTA by 2046 up from 7 million now. The city is counting on you to pay a large land transfer tax. Otherwise current homeowners will pay more. And how will all those developers afford a Lamborghini or Ferrari for their kids? Stop thinking of your own future and your own family and mindlessly apply to move here you brainless sheep!

today work began on the controversial new Ontario subway line. If people return to the downtown core to work we need another huge construction project other to get them in and out. if they don't go back property values downtown will decline. And construction (traditionally a cyclical industry) may suffer a slowdown which it hasn't seen since the early 1990's. Toronto's economy is looking more like a house of cards. Look at how IT jobs are leaving California for Texas and Arizona. Or maybe I'm wrong and the average detached house will be $5 million in 5 years. Can you afford to move here?

Massive influx of Pajeets, Patels and Muhammads has ruined this country. We are dealing not only with Islamic extremism but also with Sikh Khalistani terrorism.

Canada is now a very mediocre country that mostly appeals to third world villagers who can't wait to get out of their shanty towns and bring their aunties and uncles with them to Canada.

Canada - Expensive, cold and in decline.

Hey Mr./Ms. Anonymous (who are afraid of introducing yourself even with a fake name!), your comment is so racist.

If you’re so dumb and self righteous that you don’t know and understand that at least Canadian economy is rolling because of immigrants, then you’re probably Ford 2.0!

To enlighten you a little, immigrants have to show prove of income and savings and bring at least a year worth of all expenses for each family member upon arrival. They are merely selected amongst the best in terms of knowledge and profession yet have to start (and more often than not stay) with entry level jobs. “Canadian experience”, rings a bell?

Job market, as well documented, is arranged in a way that wouldn’t allow newcomers in unless exploited in lowest possible positions so guys like you (maybe) climb the ladder faster.

And, no matter what, they have to pay taxes on what they make and once again on what they buy! No wonder why government is so fond of immigration!

As for residents though, housing quadrupled meaning money directly in your pocket! Rental housing is ridiculously and inhumanly unaffordable which pushes newcomers to so called basements with no proper lighting and so… to make you some passive income! Yahyyy

It wasn’t even 15 years ago that no luxury cars were ramping on Toronto streets. Look now. Whose are these? If immigrants, so they brought wealth to your country. If Canadians, where from? Right, exploiting immigrants.

Take care buddy and think!

Hey Mr.Boot leaker, from government agency,

What else could you write in here? Whats your skills and degree that caused you think you got rich from your smartness and hardworking? Not from boot licking.

All the complaints here, is not related to laziness, Mr. Know it all. Is related to your system. All the the recent immigrants in Canada and US are very smart and hardworking, they know different languages and have lots of skills, but you and your boss here in the system are corrupt and stupid enough that they could not understand this fact, or may be better for their pockets to say selfish statements like yours.

Toronto has the highest concentration of CFAs in the WORLD, EXTREME competition for low and mid- level jobs, cost of living is very high, and unlimited global international students who are legally allowed to work while studying here.

IF YOU ARE MILITANT IN YOUR DISCIPLINE AND WILLING TO WORK YOURSELF TO DEATH, YOU WILL SURVIVE (MAYBE EVEN THRIVE). If you are weak and want it easy, well scroll down and join the crowd of losers who picked the wrong city, Toronto is a cold, competitive, ruthless place, and it made me rich

Canada & North America are like kingdom of ladies, legally its supposed to have equality of men n women, but practically men would be treated like slaves. Why??? Cause they want to take advantage of men to force them to prosper the economy, the capitalists pockets, to make more products or services, or to help economy,

Why they encourage directly or indirectly, to encourage people come here to live in one bedroom or shared room , while they have billions of lands to make more apartments for coming immigrants? Why most knowledgeable and supper educated entrepreneurs should work as construction worker ,plumbers, painters, roofers , Uber drivers, bus drivers, cashiers, Or in wallmart, etc,
Corporations making billions, and staff’s earning around minimum wage?

Why insurance is so expensive? Why these expensive corporations do not pay when customer get some damage?

Why the government doesn’t subsidize anything here to help their residents ??

Why one MRI takes around one year for a person with any sort of disease?

Why they are killing native people in USA, Canada, Australia for years and years and years? And in the media you guys try to show yourself as a human?? You need to go inside any jungle in the world to see that lion eats when S/he is hungry. You are not hungry but killing people around the world for the sake of your pocket,

Why your companies or organizations have lots of unreasonable process?

Why your systems, the whole society a system, are failing over n over??

North American systems has failed for, decades, that s why China, Russia and other powerful countries are here, in North America,

A toxic, broken and confused place. Even the country. A big part of this is the govt they currently have - all levels. They are a towns kind of place, but cannot handle more or the bigger levels. This place couldn't get their priorities straight before pandemic, during this pandemic, and for sure won't get their priorities straightened out in the future either. They proved it and did it to themselves to confirm this reputation. No thank you!

You will wage slave otherwise and your rent will be 2000 k for a 1 bedroom or you will have to spend million of dollars to own your own place. Never mind the fact the weather here is garbage 8 months out of the year. These is great place for a money laundering that’s about it!

Canadian government depends heavily upon cheap labor to fatten their own private financial portfolios. The doors remain open to any and all foreigners from 3rd world countries or below that.Five billion usd went missing mysteriously several months ago but Trudeau won't comment.He along with other high ranking members in government has sunk Canada's economy.Canada enjoys bashing the U S every chance they get.But the consequences of that are grim especially since the Ford plant is the largest employer in Canada and congress is talking about putting heavy tarrifs on anything made at the Ford plant in Canada. Basically putting Ford out of business in Canada is the motivation and Ford in the U S is worried about it.

canadian immigration is a fraud. You pay thousands of bucks to apply for study permit/work permit/permanent residence to come to canada, and you end up paying a huge rent in a tiny basement room with two other poor guys/girls in large city such as Toronto/Vancouver. Company are asking for your Canadian experience the moment you start to apply for your first job and you get rejected again and again. Huge amount of people with a bachelor/master/phd degree become cheap labor as a uber driver/walmart cashier. Don't come to Canada! Stay in your own country! At least you have some decency to stay and work in your own country.

I was almost a victim of Canada's legal system when I lived in Toronto.

Girlfriend suddenly wants to move in and get on my benefits from work.

A close friend of mine at work hears me talking about this and she tells me about the Ontario spousal laws and warns me that I'm being setup for financial rape.

I end the relationship a day later.

In her angry breakup email she states how she is going to come after me for my pension.


Guys.. you just can't ever get married or live with them anymore, that time over until the system is fixed. Toronto is a city for the 1%ers who live in Bridle Path and Lawrence Park. Toronto females hate men with a vengeance, and the police treat men like slaves.

Or.. we all seriously need to go line up and get government ID stating we are all women.

Its only one small aspect of the city

but does anyone else notice the issue the downtown has with a perpetual smell of garbage and sewage?

Every time I visit Toronto (admittedly usually just commuting in from the burbs for a Jays game) the stench is just brutal. Ive been to pretty much every big city in North America, and none of them have a problem with this on par with Toronto. New York was pristine and hygenic last year.

Its probably driven by that sewer line theyve been working on for what feels like a decade in front of Union station, but the amount of trash on the street is pretty extreme in some places too
Jennifer on Aug 07, 2020:
@rocky Canada has a low-wage economy due to the hour of labour and high household debt due to not being able to save money in conjunction with exhorbitant mortgage debts caused by the influx of rich foreigners we are forced to compete with for housing and the "foreign investors" i.e. parasites taking rental supply off the market and creating makeshift ghost hotels in areas not zoned for it by way of airbnb - to the tune of 30k units per The Globe and Mail, representing a vacancy rate 1.5% lower than the healthy rate it could have been without the parasite class.
Believe it or not, we don't need people like you and if you are never allowed into the country again this will be met with only a collective sigh of relief.

One can easily tell from the comments left here by Canucks that the education system in Canada is substandard and a lot of Canucks are truly uneducated on how the economy works and where the funding comes from. This frozen wasteland of a nation with a piddly 35 million people desperately needs global investors and entrepreneurs to pay for the over-taxed socialist nanny state looking after alcoholic hicks, rednecks and homeless bums on the streets that complain all day and contribute nothing.

If you understood anything about how the economy works you wouldn't make a ludicrous comment like that. Do you have any idea how much money is injected into the economy by foreigners? Canada can't survive without foreign investment and this pandemic has caused immense financial loss to the national economy already. Educate yourself. If Canada closes the doors to foreigners then Canada looses out as people will invest their wealth in another country.

If we can keep the borders closed for another 10-11 months including the slowed-to-a-trickle immigration numbers we've seen under COVID, keeping out the foreign students, tourists and foreign investors exploiting airbnb and the foreign money launderers we may be able to return to something resembling an actual livable city for the people who actually grew up here.

many goes to other countries with their believes and systems which i oppose.. there should be a test for cultural, religious and social intelligence of people who is coming to any country. those who coming thinking to make it their "rules" can make hole in your doubt. and i have seen blatant racism in middle east. in south asia china. but Canada is much better unless you
behave so awkwardly or dress or may the person is a loser so you cant help!! he or she may be finding an scapegoat in you.

Toronto is a curse and jobs are extremely hard to find.
But if you're a war criminal or money launderer, Toronto is great!

A landlord is not running a charitable organization. I have bought several mid rise buildings in the Parkdale area and I want my rent paid by April 1st!
A Landlord on Mar 25, 2020:
During the pandemic, please try to keep healthy and safe by not being poor.If you are temporarily out of work, you can try applying for a job at Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, Metro or other grocery stores and essential services. Delivery services like Amazon are also hiring as more people are requiring deliveries to their homes.If you don't want to work or pay rent, please don't come here and create problems for the Landlords. Toronto is a growing city and we don't have time for freeloaders and scumbags.

No sympathies for immigrants struggling in Canada. Get in line. Canada is not a free ride.

Toilet paper has increased significantly for the past week. You can only find one roll of toilet paper (sold separately) for $10 a roll. Greedy speculators are gouging Canadians just like the Landlords and Boomer home owners.
Please Jesus let the Coronavirus affect the Boomers who are gouging the rent and house prices for their greedy lifestyles such as buying vacation properties in formerly Native Indian reserves in South America.
How are the younger generations going to get ahead when the Polish nationalist Boomer in Canada wants mass immigration to increase his rent and house prices, yet the Polish nationalist doesn't like immigrants. Make up your mind Boomer! When are you going to expire?

Once you move to Toronto, there is no turning back. You will be stuck in a lifetime of poverty and fear of homelessness. You might die prematurely because there are no affordable housing or food in Toronto. Food banks are in dire need of donations, and apartments are rising sky high. Beware!

Toronto rents are creating a mass exodus. Who is gullible to pay C$2500 a month to rent a room inside a basement in Parkdale? You sure ain't getting Manhattan salaries when newcomers are begging to work for free.

Toronto's fertility rate was 1.3 in 2017 and is undoubtedly lower today. Nobody in Toronto is having kids. Over 30% of pregnancies in Brampton are aborted. Hamilton is Canada's hate crime capital. Go look at the top 10 cities for hate crimes in Canada per StasCan, 8 are in Ontario. Do not move to Ontario if you want kids or grandkids and do not want to become a victim of a hate crime. Nobody in the GTA can afford kids and we can see that the government will not stop foreign money laundering into our markets by only allowing citizens or permanent residents to buy homes here, so everyone - nonwhite and white alike - are nihilistic and don't even bother with reproducing the next generation when there is no hope for them here. Is this what you want for your future? Stay away from Ontario (and probably Canada in general). All we do is party and drink because there's no other hope or purpose here. We are serfs who only love to work and pay unaffordable rents.

If foreigners weren't being lied to regarding job prospects I wouldn't have an issue with Toronto.

All you get in Toronto are unhappy immigrants who were told a lie but are afraid to stand up against those who lied to them. Instead they vent their anger towards the Canadian-born who doesn't know what is being told inside immigration offices in Bombay or Lahore.

Paying $1150/month to rent a makeshift basement apartment in Scarborough, a one and a half hour transit ride from the downtown core:
Anonymous on Feb 12, 2020:
It's $1800 a month for a one-bedroom apartment, but the law doesn't allow more than three tenants in a one-bedroom. Do the math before moving to Toronto. Rents are insane, but jobs that pay a living wage are hard to find.
Are you efing kidding? If you cant make 450usd per month for apartment in 1st world and you need to live with your whole village in order to sustain yourself, you shouldnt come in the first place

It's hilarious to see everything blamed on white people and their racism. The truth is that you aren't only competing against white people. You are competing against your fellow pajeets too. So no matter how unfair you think Canada is, there is another Pajeet having wet dreams about coming here and taking on that sweet min wage position in such prosperous North American lands. White people aren't crapping in your morning cereal, you've got that well taken care of

True North,

Aren't you also guests because your ancestors came here by force a few hundred years ago?

Why did your ancestors land in Canada, spread smallpox and nasty white people diseases and almost exterminated the entire Indigenous population?

To add insult to injury, the remaining survivors were forced into residential schools and taught to "take the Indian out from them" under appalling conditions.

Now the current system in Canada wants to scam immigrants to come here and live like slaves.

Immigration is an economic system, pure and simple, Canada has perfected it, Germany is catching up to it, many other DYING countries will end up doing the same. Even Japan is experimenting with the immigration concept.

Toronto is way over valued for what it is. As someone who grew up here I can tell everyone this is no New York City or Chicago or Tokyo. It is not a world class city. There are City's with comparable amenities to Toronto in the us or in other country’s for a lot less then 2400$ for a one bedroom apartment. Also if you look at world city’s like London, Chicago, New York peoples make a lot more the. 40000 after tax, the average wage has only gone up 4000$ since 1994 it’s a joke.

Yes Toronto is a capitalist meat grinder just like any city in the world. There's nothing superior in Toronto that you couldn't find in another city in another country. Only you could do it for cheaper. Toronto is in an economic bubble and you'll end up paying out of your a$$ for a mediocre life. For the cost of a mediocre life in Toronto you could afford a much more agreeable lifestyle elsewhere in the world.
