With the cost of living in Canada rising throughout the country, understanding how much it will cost you to live in certain cities and provinces is a key factor in
determining where to live. Your cost of living can include the costs of key necessities such as:
Food & Groceries
Housing costs include rent, electricity costs and communication service costs, all which vary depending on your province. Renting is also impacted by the type of home
you rent. The type of homes we will cover in this guide are:
Bachelor style apartments designed for 1 person
2 bedroom apartments designed for 2 people
3 bedroom apartments designed for a small family of 3 or 4
Single family detached houses designed for 4 or more people
For food & grocery costs, this includes the average amount of money needed to feed you and your family, including food from restaurants.
For transportation costs, since gas and insurance are the most variable between provinces, this part will include different gas prices and insurance premiums for each
city, along with the cost of maintenance.
Finally for childcare, it includes the cost of care for infants ages 0-2, toddlers ages 2-3, and preschoolers ages 3-4.
This guide is here to help you determine what these costs could look like for you within some of Canada's largest cities.
