Men thats a lot.
SlowlybtSurely:


A 2 bedroom condo in downtown Toronto will be between $2,800 to $4,000 per month, depending on available facilities.

It's cheaper in other cities except Vancouver which is comparable to Toronto.

As long as those places too have government presence in terms of amenities and you can take a bus or so to Ontario to work. Is that so?

Hey Guys, its been a while. I have been off for a while just to concentrate on work. By the way, i have made my Savings target. I actually hit 20k savings on the 15th of July, three and half months from when i started. I withdrew everything as cash and gave wifey to hold, so that i can start saving again. To be honest, this pandemic actually helped, cos there was no place to spend the money.

Why not push to an alternate savings account (even if interest rate is very low)?.....
Re: My Monthly Savings In Canada by atutupoyoyo2211: 1:06pm On Jul 18
Not yet, still working my old jobs, but i am currently making applications to finally quit working as a security guard. Its been a good run, but its time to move on.

Honestly it was anger that made me remove that money from the bank. I wanted to make a withdrawal of 10k and the bank started asking me useless questions as if the money is not my own. Even asking me why i was withdrawing it. And the funny thing is that, this same bank did not see anything suspicious when someone walked in one of their branches in BC about a month ago, cancelled my bank card, opened a new bank card and spent almost $5k of my money in 36hours. They didnt even notice it until i called them to block my account. After investigating, they called me and apologized saying it was bank error.
Now tell me, how is it bank error when someone,
walks into a branch, cancels your card, opens a new card and then makes an atm withdrawal
of $900, then 300, then 400, from the same atm in the bank premises, and then goes on a spending spree to almost $5000, and they didnt see anything suspicious in that. The funny thing was that an hour before the person cancelled my card i made a transaction in a different province. for example, how can someone make an atm withdrawal in Halifax and then one hour later come to a bank branch in Vancouver to cancel the same card?

Which Province is has the cheapest house rent and still has Job opportunities??
Re: My Monthly Savings In Canada by atutupoyoyo2211: 6:45pm On Jul 18
They refunded it. It was when it was refunded they told me it was bank error. I guess they didnt want me to sue. Cos it was their customer care that told me what happened at the bank branch.

all these questions are childish. Make your research u hear. There are a lot of youtubers about canada. Where there are opportunities is key not cheap housing.

It is work experience modified
Re: My Monthly Savings In Canada by TheCongo2: 3:01pm On Jul 19

You have to be paid salary for it to be considered work experience, I think

Nope. Even volunteer work goes on resume. It is also work experience .

That is why it is better to volunteer than to remain idle
