Vancouver is expensive!
Another thing to note: draft "pints" are rarely pint-sized in Vancouver. They're usually 16oz or even 14oz instead of 20oz.

Is a gross salary 10000 usd/month enough for an expatriated family of four (2 adults + 2 children less than 10 years old)?
A first calculation of cost of living, gives monthly expenses between 5200 usd (out of city center) - 5900 usd (into city center)for 3 bedroom apartment and a low profile life style.
Your opinion, please !
Utilities ( cell phone, land line, hydro , internet and gym fee ) = $ 110.00 Groceries = $ 250.00 Frivolous spending ( beer, pubs, diners and such ) = $ 800.00 Total amount = $ 2,185.00 On a net income of $ 2,900.00 per month I save $ 700.00 Life is a breeze

The real price could be more, and usually is. In some cases though it could be less. For example, if you are 65+ or under 18 a monthly pass is $56. If you are disabled or on 'welfare' it is $45 *per year*.
CAD98 for an adult is only for *one zone* (unless you take the bus instead of the city train, in which case there are no zones - you can travel anywhere within the metro Vancouver area). Also, if you take the express train 'West Coast express' running to the suburbs there is a surcharge. The monthly pass price is $131 for 2-zones and $177 for 3-zones. It is normal to travel between two zones for a trip over 20 minutes. What most persons do is buy the number of zones they usually travel and pay extra per trip for each additional zone in excess.
Also, if you travel for more than 90 minutes without buying a new ticket you can be fined several hundred Canadian dollars by Transit Police.
This is one of the challenges for the easy to compare prices of Numbeo. It is over-simplified for well, simplicity,
it makes no difference if you are a tin Horton worker or a optician in walmart very high chance your boss will be Chinese and will expect Chinese standard of high work.

For Vancouver to Calgary return flights used to be around $200 and now it is around $700 for Air Canada and Westjet.
This price gouging may be temporary but may continue for another 6+ months until they fix the airplane’s safety issues.
