I've actually looked at moving to Toronto. The Canadian governement isn't very accepting of Americans coming up there. I have friends that are Canadians and say it's hard for Americans to get jobs up there.

I really wouldn't echo your experience/knowledge, as a matter of fact Canada is a land of immigrants, diverse culture etc and in my opinion its just the Canadians ( born/lived/living there for generanations feel threatened ) because alot of the skilled immigrants "seem" to take up their jobs and probably thus the insurity, and hence its predominantly visible due to their population unlike the US.

I think the reason for the "expensiveness" of Canada that he's getting at is because of the exchange rates. I don't keep track of this, but years ago Canada always had the problem because of the relative weakness of the Canadian dollar relative to the American dollar. The American dollar has weakened, but I'm not sure if it has with respect to the Canadian dollar, as much as say the Euro.

Canada is notoriously more expensive to live in and its not "cost of living" issues like you'd have in New York City, rather its the underlying issues tied to the strength of the dollar.

Anyone have a more informed opinion on this? I'm basing my opinion of information about 10 years old.
