Could you share what field you work in? I've just started my job search as a newcomer, and I certainly wouldn't like to spend 5 months looking, unsuccessfully, for a job in Toronto.

It's all relative, don't believe it's same case for every type of job. Toronto's the place to be in Canada right now if you're in search of work. Whether or not you have the persistance and determination to get the job is fully up to you. The opportunities are endless though. Businesses are opening up everywhere, especially in the suburbs (Markham/Brampton/Mississauga). I'd even go as far to say Kitchener/Waterloo (RIM "Blackberry HQ"), but that's some distance though.

You don't want to come to KW trust me :-)

RIM is hiring slowly -- we have some other places hiring but the hiring isn't nearly as aggressive as it once was. This won't be the Canuck Silicon Valley anytime soon

Judging by this, I would recommend a move out west. Weather is cold but some good opportunities out here.

Skip Ontario IMO. Running a HUGE deficit ( i think somewhere around 200 billion) ?
