Is there a specific city you're interested in living in? Keep in mind larger cities like Vancouver and Toronto have the highest housing costs in Canada.

As for jobs, the market is soft but there's still work to be had.

So like the Canadian prairies? I have a friend who's living out in Alberta working at the oil sands and making hand over fist. He was hooked up with that job as he was looking for a summer job to pay for school. He bought his house cash (bugger). Anyways, the boom there has settled down but there's still jobs to be had depending on what skills you have.

I can't speak on other places as I don't have friends/family living in the "flats". I do have friends/family in Vancity and the cost of living there is insane. Do not go there unless you have something solid lined up.

agreed i wouldn't hit up BC in general tbh unless you have something lined up, sask has jobs available but like was said before it really depends on skills and experience, some of the cheapest living costs in canada tho, manitoba is about the same i just moved to sk from manitoba so

If you want money go to Alberta, winters are cold and harsh, but the cash is really good if you are working with any oil company. The work is not easy though, prepare to bust your ass.

If you want a nice lifestyle and a nice place to live you can move to BC, but Vancouver is probably the most expensive place to live in Canada and the job market there is weak as fuck. I live in the Interior region of BC and there arent that many jobs here, you may find a mechanic job though.. Rent is alot cheaper and the summers here are great.

If you move to Canada your in for a eye opener, things are alot different up here then they are in NC.

If your desperate and not worried about the cold, head to Fort McMurray in Alberta. A lot of oil field up that way and an equal amount of maintenance and tradesman positions.
These idiots went there => Fubar 2 - Official Blog hahahaha
