The cost of living in Canada

Canada is a very big country. Because of this, the cost of living can be quite different depending on where you choose to live.

Big cities like Toronto and Vancouver are the most expensive places to live, especially when it comes to housing. Food, heating, clothing, transportation, and cellphone and Internet plans, in addition to rent, can take up to half your take-home pay. Keep these expenses in mind when deciding where you want to live.
