Do you realize that Canada is scamming you because Canadians are already stuck in a debt trap and broke?
Tent cities are common. Homeless is s as dire issue. Inequality is getting worse.
Getting approved for a room is even difficult. They charge $800 a month to share a room with someone else.
Toronto is becoming a third world slum.
After the mandatory vaccine program many doctors and nurses just retired or left. Yes they have great health care but what's the point when you wait months for your turn because doctors are hard to find.
Costs are incredibly high right now. Toronto is almost twice as expensive as New York. Living in Bucharest now I find it easier to live, doctors at every corner (private health infrastructure rivals that of Toronto), transit is way better, prices way cheaper and after a couple of years working here I can afford to buy a home.
I'm gonna work at canada
My skills are web design,Network,Database and Teaching English
Could you help me to find a appropriate job?
Let me summarize pros and cons here…
Big, fast growing city
Criminal situation is not bad compare to many other North American cities
Easier to find a job than elsewhere in Ontario
Decent public transportation by North American standards
Nice weather. Good summer, spectacular fall, decent winter and no spring. Usually, winter changes into summer in a couple of short weeks.
Very good community services - excellent library, many ice skating/hockey places, public pools at the community centres
Most public schools are good
Extremely diverse city.
Many immigrants - easy to blend in. Some people claim Toronto is #1 in North America by the number of immigrants per capita
Big, fast growing city
VERY expensive daycare
Very expensive real estate prices. A good condo will be a half of a mil CAD. A nice house is over a mil CAD
Land transfer tax in Toronto is almost 2 times higher than elsewhere in Ontario - you have to pay the land transfer tax when you buy a property
Rent is fairly expensive and not always includes the utilities. On many occasions the tenant has to pay hydro as well as the rent
Beer is very expensive
I have to agree with many that if your income is under $50k, the life is not good in Toronto. Child care is VERY expensive. Public transportation is not cheap - $3.25 a ride. But! You don’t pay for the transfer. You can travel entire city east to west to the airport for $3.25 using a bus, subway, and another bus or a streetcar.
The bottom line - if you make close to 6 digits, the life is good in Toronto.
This place is also becoming unsafe for certain groups of people because of the Polish nationalist bringing his racist and antisemitic upbringing from Poland into Canada, while accusing African-Americans of being "outsiders" who "don't integrate" into his white nationalist utopian vision of Canada.
There are also racist middle-aged white men who accost Muslim women on the street, the infamous Yamayama man in North York being one. How he isn't arrested for criminal harassment or beaten to death by taunting the wrong guy baffles me...
200,000 and higher: good life, specially if you extort rents from newcomers who will never be able to settle and are replaced as disposable paper cups.
100,000-199,000: Worried all the time, and being pushed by your directors to fire people who do not conform, or who get sick, or who get pregnant.
45,000-99,999: awful existence, you are either a mortgage slave, or you are a renter at the mercy of one of the groups above, who have no compassion and will put you, your kids, your pets on the streets whenever they feel like reno-viction time.
0-45,000: If you are not lucky with the subsidized rent lottery, where the chances are one in a million or 10 year long waitlist, you are here temporarily, get four jobs, and count your days.
