If you are thinking about moving to Canada, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing...

"I am bewildered to hear of average housing in Montreal is around CAN $226,000. I lived in Montreal for 23 years, I am visiting frequently, I am planning to return soon, and I can confirm that you will not find any decent housing within 10 miles of the city center for less than $500,000," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Canada.

"The average cost of housing in Canada can vary greatly, depending on the province, city, or even neighbourhood. Generally, the cost of housing in Canada tends to be higher than most other developed countries, due to the strong economy and high demand for homes. Overall, the cost of living in Canada is expensive, with the average cost of renting a two-bedroom apartment in Toronto and Vancouver being higher than many other major cities around the world. In addition, the cost of buying a home in Canada is also high compared to the rest of the world, with the median price of a single family home in Toronto and Vancouver being over one million dollars," commented one expat who made the move to Canada.
