    ok, all my 12oz canadians give me the low down on canada: jobs (teachers, cops, shit like that), pay rates, cost of living, decent areas, rent, and anything else for a poor american like me to know if i am looking to move.

    thanks!

    well what are you looking for?
    Big cities i guest?
    Are you willing to endure the cold winter, or cannot stand it? Learn french or 100% english?

    If you are focusing only on the biggest cities ( like i'm presuming)
    , you only have 3 choices : Vancouver Toronto Montreal

    you can get a lot more than hotdogs at 4:00am my man.

    I think it's very simple.....
    just match the city to your personality type:

    Poor yet stylish, the rebirth of slick - MONTREAL
    Wheeler dealer, stressed to impress - TORONTO
    chillin, west coast rollin' and self-righteous - VANCOVER

    keep in mind montreal is a french speaking city and gets to -40 in winter where as vancouver doesnt get snow and rarely gets to below zero

    Vancouver: west coast style. if you hate winters go there. Pretty hot all the time compared to the rest of Canada. A lot of rain though. Mountains + sea make it verry beautiful and interesting i guess... But i think that the cost of living is verry high compared to Montreal. Dont know about the job situation. A lot of asian people.

    Montreal: Quebec style with a touch of english. if you love winters go there. You wont be able to paint wild style pieces for 3 or 4 months in the winter or you ll get frozen fingers. Montreal always been the poorer city in Canada , but since 10-15 years theres an economic boom. because of that traditional poverty the cost of living is one of the lowest in north america, and the rents of an appartment are low too. But since 5 years the prices are boosting up... so its not that cheap anymore, but you still can find some good deals. For the job situation, if you looking for some litle jobs on the side while studiyng for example, its easy to find them only in english. But i guess that if you want to make a real career you ll have to learn french.
    If you want something different from the average american culture go there..
