In my experience, those people who drive a nice car do in fact have the money to pay for it. It's just that you can't judge how rich a person is by their dress.
I find the opposite a 3 series and C-Class are made to be leased and not many people buy them and tend to trade for in for the newer models once the lease is up and a F-150 in XLT trim is about the same as the entry level BMW 3-series price wise and bet there more people end up buying the F-150 then a 3-series BMW.

Canada is definitely a "for some and not for others" kind of country. While the rewards are fantastic if you fit into the mold here, the distress you feel if you don't is just as great. I know lots of people who came to Canada thinking it was going to be this great utopia of milk and honey and left quite soon after to go back to their birth nations because of this. Canadians like homogeneity, they like consistency, and most of which conformity. They claim they like diversity too but that is rarely seen here, beyond superficial definitions of it. "Fitting" in is an important reality here, lest you be an outcast. Don't expect to come here with a plethora of different peoples and social groups at your disposal that you can join in with depending on your personality type, like in the US. That aint gonna happen.

But hey, in the case that you are the right fit for Canada there seem to be great opportunities for you. If you like vast landscapes, the wilderness, "quaint" (i use this world loosely) communities, where you can make a decent amount of money, Canada has them. If this is the case I would highly recommend Saskatchewan. You'll enjoy the surplus. Housing is cheap and there is a lot of money to be made. A financial win-win.

You should probably avoid about 20 states in our country as well if you feel that way.
