We are planning on moving to Toronto, ON within the year. We are a family of 6. Our four kids are 13, 11, 9 and 1 years old. My preference would be an area where rent is low, with easy access to schools, libraries, malls and parks. I wouldn't mind not having a car for now as the insurance is very high. Won't mind minorities in the area.

I am looking for an idea that how much will be the cost of living for us.
Any replies will be appreciated.

Thanks
Saeed

Minorities are a given in almost any area of the city.

Perhaps it would help if you could define what constitutes low rent to you?

What part of town will you be working in? Your public transit commute will be a major factor in your location decision.

My idea ofa low rent would be $800 to $1200. Anything above that would be expensive. I will be needing 3-4 bedrooms.

I will probably be working either in Markham or Toronto downtown.

Both Markham and Toronto downtown are very expensive as far as rent goes. North York (near the Don Mills subway) has good public transit connectivity to both Markham and downtown. You can rent a 3 bedroom apt for around $1300 in that area.
