I live in London, UK. The cost of living here is retarded as well + the city is too big for my liking. I was thinking of moving to Canada as it is still less expensive than UK. If I get a job in Toronto then at least I will be able to rent something more decent than here and can do contract work in the land of freedom.
>>
Lol what

Minimum wage in Ontario is 11.25. If you work 40 hours a week at that your after tax income is around 1500 dollars. Each! 3k take home each month. How much are you fucking spending on rent that you can't afford to feed your stupid self?

>>685671030
whats the cost of living, 1 bed flat(condo), food per month, how is commute?
What's the weather like throughout the year i.e. how cold does it get in winter?
>>
>>685670721
11.25x40 = 450
450x4 = 1800
At that income your tax is around 20%
80% of 1800 is 1440

So around 2900 monthly with two people working full time

How can you not make this work?
>>
>>685670721
>>685670721
Do you know how to math?

11.25 * 40 = 450
450 * 4 = 1800;
1800 * 0.8 (approx for tax) = 1440;
1450 * 2 = 2880.

OP is obviously a loser who can't manage money.
>>
>>685671240
lol, well Id like a lot more. I am house broke most of the time. But whatever. Still got vidya games, tinder for girls and 4chan. I remain entertained for the most part. Currently eating fish, drinking coconut water after a few beers. I will have a few more tonight whilst I play a tales game.
>>
>>685671397
26K a year is the absolute minimum imo. if you cant meet that, get a roomie or gf.

1 bed condo ranges from 900-1400. personally i have a 1 bed, 1100 month, utils included with my gf. live comfortably with food 100 a month, but im a cook so i might be more advanced at stretching out the budget there.

transit is ok, but youll want to keep your commute under 30 minutes. its mostly tolerable but it can be packed during rush hour.

weather varies wildly, b/c youre by water. it can be sunny and rainy within 5 minutes. expect humid summers of 20-35 degrees, and cold winters (cold for an outsider such as yourself. im used to it). it can get down to -20 easily.
>>
>>685671937
what field are you in?
>>
>>685670681
800 in utilities is way too much, m8, how is that possible?
Stop leaving your electronics lying around while connected to the outlet. Unplug.
Dress more, less heating.
Open windows wide once a day for a few minutes to get fresh air, then close to save energy.
Start buying stuff second hand.
Move to a cheaper appartment.

You're currently living above what you can afford, and it's hurting you.

There's no shame in downgrading.
Start minmaxing. Either buy the cheapest of something, or buy very high quality and maintain it if you care enough about it.
>>
>>685670800
i live in a prime real estate area and have all my utilities included in my rent
>>
>>685670681
800 in utilities? Holy fuck dude. 60 for internet. 200 TOPS to heat, water and electricity (which should be included Ontario makes it so fucking easy for you). Another 100 for two cell phones since I'm sure you don't get cheaper alternatives in Bellevegas.

How do you get to 800 dude?>>685670681
>>
>>685671397
Not that guy. But a one bedroom condo by the lake will run you around $1200 -1600k (cda) a month.

TTC (public transit) is ok if you live near a majoy route. getting expensive. And this winter was super mild. But normally a day averages around -10 and -20 with a wind chill.
>>
My insurance rates for cars and motorcycles is absurd, making a huge chunk of the money I earn go towards simply being able to drive - where if anything happens, they'll fuck me royally because what the fuck am I paying for anyways?

Housing? I'm hoping to buy in 2-3 years, but little shit boxes are going for like half a million if they're anywhere close to society.

Cell phones? Internet? TV? Good luck affording these too - because they're hugely inflated for fuck all service.

I don't get why the government is so happy to let us be bled out like this.

What do you do in Bellville?

Learn a trade, join a union, you'll be making in the low 20's to start but depending on the trade(doesn't have to be a licensed trade) you'll be earning 30-37 an hour within a few years experience.
>>
>>685672406
Lol do you think it gets better in the US? Insurance companies fuck you just as bad. Any money you think you'll save by paying less taxes goes right into medical insurance anyway. I've been poor in both places and I'd rather be poor in Ontario.

Thanks buddy. I think I will be earning enough to live though that. I currently earn about 75k (in Canadian dollars) but I am thrifty and don't splash money - I cook myself I used to work as a chef few years ago. I would go with my gf so we both would be working. I was born in Poland but moved to UK to finish school here so the worst I experienced was -35C degrees. I will keep doing research and start looking for jobs next year as it seems at the living cost might a bit better than here.
>>
>>685670262

I make 22 an hour 40 hours a week and I don't make 3k a month. Quit making shit up.
>>
>>685673051
thats kinda my point all the major cities in canada have such massive populations that rely on public transit and the cities have failed incredibly at providing adequate service. meanwhile federal funding continues to pour into privatized public services and the cost of said services keeps rising. I literally saw and ad for the fair hike on bus passes that said "well its still cheaper than driving" in ottawa OC transpo drivers make upwards of 100k
>>
>>685673734
Good luck friend :)
It can be hard to get to Canada on a work visa. In order to immigrate your employer has to prove there is no Canadian available who can do your job. It's pretty fucking stupid but you sound pretty qualified so maybe you can do it.
>>
>>685671826

11.25 * 40 = 450 per WEEK
450 * 4 = 1800 per MONTH because there are roughly 4 weeks in a month

before taxes you Autistic fuck

>>685673881
How don't know? before taxes that 3500~ish

>>685674726
You should take home around 2800 every month right? Assuming you're single? Less than two people making minimum because of tax brackets but not that far off.

And anyway I originally said LIKE 3k since I didn't feel like doing fucking math but holy shit I guess I was off by 200 dollars fucking kill me

A pack a day isn't smoking like a chimney, I know people who smoke 75 cigarettes everyday and that is smoking like a chimney, a 25 pack a day is baby tier
>>
>>685678043
Also, people dislike like Toronto as many Americans hate NYC. same reason
>>
>>
>>685678572

are you autistic?

>>685678427
Because it'd mean giving up a career that pays very well and gives me a very flexible schedule and tons of free time. Plus all my friends and family are here.

Thinking about doing it anyway, though. Might move to Europe somewhere. Always have a good time over there,

A pack a day (depending on brand) can run you well over $100 a bloody week

Accept you situation, slowly start to cut down and then eventually quit.

Noone truly needs to smoke.

And way not to respond to my comment about your boozery, bud

come to quebec, theres poutine, skidoos and 200k houses.

So it seem this thread is aboot dead. I would like to give a special thanks to op for enlightening me on how truly shitty canada still is. if your still here op you should leave canada and never come back we would all really appreciate it
>>
>>685678724
Because NYC is full of insufferable faggots who get offended by everything and think they're too good for everyone?
>>
>>685678781
Does she knows she has giant milk duds nipples?
>>
>>685679010
a career that pays well, in a city you hate? if a good career came from TO, then its at least not as bad as you think.
>>
>>685678868
25-40 a day for the average adult smoker, if you smoke less than 25 a day you don't really smoke

Fucking what did I just say, $24 no tax Canada goose smokes, they're not even harsh or anything
>>
>>685679248
nice baseless generalization. with that mindset, its not even about nyc.

have fun going anywhere in the world if you think blanket statements like that apply to over 13 million NYC'ers
>>
>>685669083
Love when fellow canadians cry bout being poor.

Got a roof over your head, good food n healthy?
You got more than alot of ppl, i myself have been missing the above so many times , maybe do without a cellphone and take the bus

Literally so many spoiled little runts who made it to adulthood here in canada
>>
>>685679508
The city can still be shit even if I have a good career.
>>
>>685679754
oh youre the expensive city guy. sorry

uhh check for something in the south US. IIRC Texas has houses for 140K that rival 1million here in Canada
>>
>>685679829
I was implying that Toronto is, in fact, full of insufferable faggots. NYC is aight. Had some good times there.

THIS

I grew up in the Canadian white equiv. of "poverty" and I still had it better than your average asshole in Africa

Y'all fuckdongles need to pull up your pantaloons and get on the Moose and just fucking deal with it
>>
>>685679946
i wasnt arguing that a city is completely unflappable even if a good career comes from it.

what i was saying is that a great thing, like your career, from a city you hate, probably makes that city less sucky than you think.
>>
>>685669925
you are restarted stop wasting all your money on drugs
>>
>>685679842
At least it's hot in Africa. They don't live 6 months in the cold and freeze because they can't afford the electric bills
>>
OP you are a fucking retarded nigger. Quit drinking and smoking and weed and maybe you'll be able to buy food. Get your priorities right you fucking autistic faggot
>>
>>685677338
I'm with this guy. I'm in Alberta and make just over min wage. I own a 2013 car, pay my mortgage, and eat Mr noodle. It's possible to live on basically nothing but you need discipline. Hell if my place had 2 incomes I'd live like a king. Pic related.
>>
>>685673051
I actually think Ottawa has a really good public transit system. So does Montreal. TTC is garbage, but that's the Toronto's fault for not developing the subway lines early enough. Can't say anything about other cities though.
>>
>>685679842
It's impossible to be homeless in canada unless you're mentally ill. They give anyone welfare here you dumb fuck and if you want more money just fake being mentally ill and get disability
>>
>>685680222
I suppose. It's like fishing a quarter out of a giant pile of dog shit, then being like "hey, a quarter! I guess dog shit's not so bad after all!"
>>
>>685669083
Dude.. I live in Montreal and me and my gf only make about $50 000 a year each and we are living VERY comfortably...
>>
>>685680143

again, baseless generalization. toronto, nyc, or fucking anywhere, youll have that same mindset.
>>
>>685680436
yes i hear good things about montreal.

>>685680481
it comes down to attitude. i love the city and what its provided me.

>>685680552
It's true, though.
>>
>>685680453
This

I know people who don't even work here in Ontario and they have money for food and partying everyday
>>
>>685680498
ayyy Montreal /b/ro
>>
>>685670681

OP is retarded. In London (fairly close to Belleville) for $1000 you can rent a 3 bedroom apt. on Platt's Lane (nice area right by Uni, all utils included. OP must be renting some swanky townhouse, and $800 for utils? WTF, how is that even possible?
>>
>>685669083
I live in Canada. Saskatoon. I make $30 an hour and spend my money recklessly and it's all good.

>>685679842

The difference is if you don't work here you freeze and die. Our forefathers worked their bag off and we have ever since. No work=no heat. In Africa they've done dick all in the last hundred years if not thousands of years. They sit, fight, screw and take handouts from the white guy at red cross
>>
>>685680498
>100k/year

Dude. If you only live "VERY comfortably" with that kind of money, you're an idiot.
>>
From Peterborough, gf stays at home with 2 kids, work 45-50 hours a week at 14.25 in a kitchen. Have a decent car. Smoke appx. 17 cigs a day. Rent a house. Pay cable, gas, hydro, phone bills... money left over to pit away.

You're just a lowlife dude, buy groceries instead of liquor.
>>
It's isolated from the rest of the world, but I recommend Thunder Bay, Ontario. About 100,000 people, gorgeous natural beauty, and a shit load of new hit girls every September when college and university start. Rent is reasonable, utilities are low.
>>
Renting a little one bedroom, two floor apartment while working at Walmart and barely scraping by. Hopefully going to school next year so I can get out of this dead end job.
>>
>>685681042
Right now sask has it going on. No privatisation of essential services and gov regulations for important shit. No asshole ultra capitalism
>>
>>685681365
hit girls?
>>
>>685669083
>ITT retards that live in Canada and don't know how to shop frugally, so that they can eat fully and healthy without having to pay out their ass for food.

>ITT retards that live in Canada and think things are expensive. Based on what you fucking dumb nigger the cost that it would be in USD?

>ITT retards that live in Canada and think working full time can't afford you a place and food and still save money.

tfw my brother is in his late 20's, lives downtown Toronto renting, and works full time and saves a ton of money every month, eats really well, and goes out frequently. Try not spending money on McDonalds and snacks you fucking retard, it's not hard to not be broke.
>>
>>685681007
Maybe because we wash our clothes and actually turn the lights on..... hydro is almost 600 a month than you have water and heat which is 180 a month for water and mid winter it's 500 a month for heat
>>
>>685681564
Whoops. HOT girls
>>
>>685680749
This >>685680481

You're just a salty faggot, Toronto is great.
>>
OP is clearly not mentioning credit card bills or something. Nobody is this stupid. Hydro in Ontario is crazy, yes, so just figure out what the peak hours are and don't leave your phone plugged in overnight and shit. Google how to make it less expensive.
>>
>>685681727
haha hot girls are just about anywhere in Canada though.

>>685681855
thanks. its just you and i for pro TO in this thread. seriously.
>>
>>685681886
Between my gf and I were 95k in debt and I'm 25 and she's 24
>>
I make 2000$ take home month atm and I live in a 3 bedroom house with one roommate and I own a vehicle for 1400$/mo expenses. Thats just me. With two incomes you can't even afford to live?
>>
I'm going to England (London) to become an engineer. All because i want to make big business connections and become a big shot.

Holy fuck am I going to miss you guys, Canada. England is a shithole compared to here...
>>
>>685674522
Tfw I make 12$ in a day and manage just fine. You can only blame yourselves.
>>
>>685681989
I'm not sure why I find so many people on 4chan that hate Toronto.
My guess is because they're all autists about it and can't look at the goods in things. Sure I could sit here and bitch all day about stupid shit in my city or my home, but end of the day I live there so why not put an optimistic attitude and outlook on it and try to enjoy it and come to like it.

>>685682123
This has nothing to do with where you live, you're just a fucking idiot.

CIGARETTE CONSUMPTION
 Daily smokers in Canada smoked an average of 13.9 cigarettes per day.

Source: http://tobaccoreport.ca/2015/TobaccoUseinCanada_2015.pdf

Conclusion: OP is full-time faggot.
>>
>>685682388
Yeah it does because canada is expensive as fuck, you need to make at least 50k a month to live somewhat normal
>>
>>685682388
maybe theyre small towners that take part in the baseless assumptions that Torontonians are mean and whatnot? i find a lot of that on all social media really, not just 4chan

anyways i think if these people actually came to TO, they would change their mind. were not really different from any other people in any other city
>>
>>685682439
so maybe just a bit over half a large pack (25) a day?
>>
>>685682439
>14 smokes a day

wtf why wouldn they even smoke if they aren't addicted? I smoke 2 packs a day which is 50 cigarettes and I'm not even a heavy smoker compared to my friends who smoke 70+ a day
>>
>>685682788
I live in Toronto. People here really are that awful.
