Car Rental in Toronto: one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world

Canada’s largest city, Toronto, boasts the best of the cultural melting pot metaphor: less than 50% of the city’s residents have their roots in Anglo-European countries, leading to a genuine mix of shopping, dining, and arts experiences throughout the city. It’s also one of the safest cities in the world, according to the 2015 Safe Index. Make the most of your visit to this metropolis on the coast of Lake Ontario by booking a rental car and exploring the area in comfort.

Toronto witnesses four distinct seasons each year, with bitingly cold winters and hot, humid summers. This makes the shoulder seasons, from late April through May, and from mid-September through mid-October, the most comfortable time of the year to visit.

English and French are the two official languages of Canada, though Canadians are generally quite multilingual. Toronto was originally home to the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and the Mississauga of the Credit River, though many of Canada’s First Nation’s languages are spoken in Toronto as well, including Ojibway, Inuktitut, Mi’kmaq and Dene.

Toronto is located in the Eastern Time Zone, UTC-5.

The currency is the Canadian dollar, and most financial transactions take place via credit or debit card.

Automobile hire is available in over 20 locations throughout Toronto, including the Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ), the Billy Bishop City Airport (YTZ), downtown, and at the Union Railway Station.

Visa Regulations

Citizens from a vast number of countries can enter Canada as a tourist visa-free for up to 6 months. You will need to fill out the eTA (electronic Travel Authorization) in advance of your arrival; the fee is $7. A number of other nationalities must apply for a visa at a Canadian Visa Office in advance of their departure.

Driving in Toronto

Public transportation is clean and efficient in Toronto and this huge city’s downtown is also quite walkable. For attractions and exploration outside of the city center, however, a rental car can provide you unbeatable convenience and comfort.

Right-Hand Driving

  • Traffic drives on the right-hand side of the road in Toronto, as throughout the rest of North America.

Typical Speed Limits

  • In the city: 50 km/h
  • On rural highways: 80 km/h
  • On expressways: 100 km/h
  • Toronto’s grid-like structure and frequent highway access points typically keep the city’s traffic moving, but it’s still recommended to avoid morning and evening rush hours, from 7 to 10 am and 4 to 7 pm respectively.

Other Regulations

  1. Parking is typically available but expensive in downtown Toronto. On-street parking costs anywhere between $1.50 and $4.00 an hour depending on the location, and garage parking is similarly priced, if not more expensive.
  2. If your domestic driver’s license has been issued in English or French, it is valid for up to 90 days of driving throughout Canada; otherwise you will need an international driver’s permit as well.
  3. The Ontario Highway 407 or 407 Express Toll Route and Highway 412 are the tolled roads of Ontario. They are electronically monitored, so your rental company will issue you a bill for your use of these roads after the fact, typically with the addition of an extra fee as well. Use of the 407 can get pricey, so double-check toll rates before you take the express.
  4. The minimum driving age in Ontario is 16 years with a provisional license, though most rental companies will require that you are at least 20 years old to rent a car, and you are likely to face young-driver surcharges until the age of 25.

Other Tips

  • If you’re interested in driving into the United States from Toronto, talk to your rental agency. This is typically permitted by larger rental companies, such as Hertz, though you will likely need some extra documentation to cross the border, and be aware of US border regulations, including the ESTA!

Cheap Car Rental in Toronto

Automobile hire in Toronto typically starts at around $20 a day. Here are some of the best deals in Toronto:

  • Nissan Versa or similar (economy class) – $20/day
  • Toyota Corolla or similar (compact class) – $24/day
  • Hyundai Elantra or similar (intermediate class) – $35/day
  • Chevrolet Cruze or similar (standard class) – $38/day
  • Volkswagen Jetta or similar (fullsize class) – $42/day

Note that prices vary depending on the availability of each specific car and the season in which you rent. For the most accurate offers, use the search bar above.

Tips for Renting a Car Inexpensively in Toronto

Through agencies such as Thrifty, Dollar, and Ace Rent-a-Car, the typical rental price year-round for your basic car throughout Toronto is $33. However, if you book your car within 5 months of your arrival at the Toronto Pearson International Airport, you can typically save another $10 to $20 a day! Local agencies such as Routes Car Rental, Zoom Rent a Car, and E-Z Rent a Car offer unbeatably low prices.

Only international companies such as Hertz, Dollar, and Thrifty lower their prices by around $5 a day for extending your rental period to over a week.

This doesn’t get reported in the CBC media.

Rents are ASTRONOMICALLY rising in Toronto, but the CBC (government-owned media) only reports stupid news stories such as a woman who believes she was harassed in the subway, or a woman finding ants in Dollarama candy.

Toronto is going to end up going the way of civil unrest soon if rent prices keep rising, locals get priced out from housing, and young men feel that there is no future for them because of discrimination against single men in housing, jobs and Canadian society.

A few years ago, a few disenfranchised men flew to Turkey to join ISIS, but recently disenfranchised young men are committing terrorist attacks right at home (Faisal Hussain, Alek Minassian).

People are getting angrier that they aren’t getting ahead, and also feel a sense of losing out on their communities which are being replaced by Yuppies and snowflakes.

I still defend that Canada is not a racist place.. but the below text from Anon’s post is absolutely true though. The general culture is incredibly open to foreigners but yeah when it comes to things like hiring or sharing actual resources you will realize that people are racist. This is true pretty much anywhere you go in the world. Honestly it’s this two-facedness that I dislike about Canada. Everyone is polite but everyone is also fake.
In a broad cultural sense Canada is absolutely not racist. It’s pathologically open to foreigners in my opinion. But when the rubber hits the road the reality is human beings are racist.

«While politicians might be anti-discriminatory, Canadian employers are not politicians, and government does not create jobs because the jobs are already given to the family members!»

Toronto has a homeless crisis, yet the realtor and government stooge artifically inflates the salary on a website that has been censored from the search engines, or deliberated ranked low to prevent people from accidentally Googling this information.

«Work for free is the new minimum wage» as one has said here on this message board.

Even if you graduate with a 4.0 GPA from UofT or Rotman, employers demand that you work for $0 pay for at least a year before hiring you.

Unless you’re a white Canadian girl, who somehow gets legal proceedings in her favour for higher salaries and her right to dress however she wants in the workplace without «harassment» from males (i.e. the average dude working average wages—The same female would give her body away for free to the CEO or Bay St. Investment Banker).

Toronto is a bad place right now to start over as an immigrant. Racism, intellectual discrimination and rich-poor divide are getting worse. Don’t be fooled by the constant virtue signalling from politicians that Toronto isn’t discriminatory towards immigrants. While politicians might be anti-discriminatory, Canadian employers are not politicians, and government does not create jobs because the jobs are already given to the family members!

Is this how bad rent prices have risen in Toronto?

$1,200 to rent a moldy basement which is a death trap?

Pay $1,000 a month to rent a basement and get treated like garbage:

Don Cherry fired for suggesting that immigrants to Canada should bother to remember WW2 veterans

This is not a serious country

It’s going to be a tough winter for many in Toronto. Job losses are increasing. If you don’t have a company securing you a job when you immigrate, don’t bother considering living in Canada. Try a tourist visa and you might want to return because this city if toxic, soulless, conformist and more materialistic than NYC, but way less jobs.

You are more likely to DIE in Toronto than anywhere else for paying extreme prices to rent a room inside a faulty rooming house. This person might have paid almost $1,000 to rent a room inside a basement, and she DIED because of the substandard rooming house:

Boomers pack like dozens of students inside their homes for $1,000 a head in Toronto, and then complain when people complain of this extortion.

Something’s got to give in Toronto.

The realtors are posting fake salaries and are censoring comments. But when hundreds of thousands of Torontonians have no job and no place to sleep, what will the greedy Landlords and Boomers do?

Canada is no different than corrupt third world countries:

Toronto is designed to be a plantation of serfs and the ruling class ruling us using the Yes-Men bureaucratic class to enforce the system.

The Yes-Men bureaucrats have monitoried this website, and complained to the webhosts to remove comments which criticize the following symptoms of corruption in this hyper-capitalist city:

1. Police turn a blind eye on money laundering and financial crimes, yet they kick down the doors of bloggers for criticizing women and the elites.

2. Food prices and rent prices are skyrocketing in Toronto, but if you complain online, someone reports your comments to the moderators &/or police.

As someone who friend was recently visited by several agents of Toronto Police at his apartment because of posts he made on this forum, I can safely assure you that as long that you don’t lament of money laundering in real estate, foreign speculators and «reverse discrimination against straight men», you’re in the clear; for now.

Toronto Police actually reads what we post on here!

i don’t understand how people think toronto is far-right politically or something

where in the world do LGBT people get more praise and attention than in Toronto? they have equal rights, an entire month to celebrate them.. like what specifically do you think would count as «equal treatment» that they do not currently have?

i think toronto is fairly friendly to foreigners as well, but they should be wary about the difficult economic situation for people in toronto who cannot rely on generations of past wealth

Keep spreading the truth of this rat race he*l hole of a city. This is what the news publishes in Toronto:
https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/jolly-rancher-halloween-ants-1.5341177

Toronto is a feminist city which focuses more on a woman finding ants in candy, but f*** all who are victims of hate crimes and living in poverty.

The average wage you are speaking of is for a 4 year university graduate working full time. They might wait another 5 to 10 years and another extra year of graduate studies to get that pay raise to C$50,000 yearly.

Working for free is the new starting wage in Toronto, and God knows how employers are able to exploit post-secondary graduates without legal repercussions.

Working full time in a factory at minimum wage is only net C$2,000 a month, yet I’ve seen rental prices in the suburban areas of Scarborough increase from C$1,200 back in 2012 to a whopping C$1,750 for a one-bedroom.

Income inequality is increasing and the only way to stop this is to read and follow the struggles of the African-American & Latino populations who were suffering under genrtification in California.

Right now, the Boomers and their children are pricing out everyone from the real estate and rental markets and gentrifying the place.

Surprisingly, it’s the Boomers and their children who are pushing for mass immigration, snowflake laws and censorship of criticism.

On the other hand, it’s the Boomers who are against certain groups and races of people and poor people speaking up against gentrification.

As if the Boomers and their snowflake children expect us to shut up while they force many of us on the streets due to high rent prices.

Foreigners are paying C$50,000+ to illegally migrate to the 1st world. What makes you believe that the influx of Asians will stop here in Toronto?

Funny that Asians are killing themselves being smuggled in airtight containers to the UK, but the local Caucasians are living as ‘expats’ in those Asian countries (China, Vietnam, Cambodia, India, et al) and are living as Kings and Queens.

Whoever keeps on artificially boosting the average salary has an agenda. If you get a job here, it’s likely temporary labour or working as a cashier at Tim Hortons.

The middle class jobs are disappearing and jobs are hard to find in Toronto. You will spend every penny of your life savings and end up on social welfare, if the racist PC Ontario conservatives doesn’t slash that. There is a high risk of civil unrest in Toronto. One paycheck or welfare cheque away from a full blown civil war in Toronto.

Anonymous, this message board is being watched by the Canadian government.

The Canadian economy and the landlords depend on 350,000 suckers to move here and live in the Big Cities, especially in Toronto to create a society of consumers.


If it weren’t for the NIMBYs and the mass immigration, rents and car prices would be way lower in Toronto.

Instead, one has to pay $1,700 a month for a one-bedroom apartment in Scarborough or Etobicoke.

Leave your middle class job.

Sell all of your assets.
Transfer your life savings to Canada.

You need Canadian experience for job.

$2,000 a month to rent cockroach apartment in area where criminals act with impunity.
You need Canadian experience for job.

Your wife leaves you because Canadian girls say you are too barbaric.
You need Canadian experience for job.

$2,000 rent is due. Landlord knocks on your door demanding payment.
You need Canadian experience for job.

Work for free for Canadian experience.
$2,000 rent is due. Landlord evicts you.

Working for free.
Living as a second class citizen.
Working for free.

Company lies to you and claim that they are terminating your contract before you ask for a salaried job.

You need PAID, Canadian work experience for job. And also tons of requirements, sensitivity training, changing your accent and behaving in a way which doesn’t offend the local Canadians who judge you negatively because you’re immigrant.

Come to Canada, and DIE in the most inhumane way. He died at the workplace, yet the staff had to continue working as if nothing happened. Right here in Toronto! A worker died and staff had to continue working and the factory was still operating. Life has no meaning if you are poor in Canada, but the Bridle Path millionaires are living the good life.

Do you want to migrate to Canada and die in Toronto as a serf? The Filipino man was a civil engineer in his home country and in UAE, but in Toronto, he DIED a factor worker, and even when he died, the Bridle Path owners forced the workers to keep on working, even after seeing a worker die in the most horrible way; crushed by a faulty machine. Come to Toronto and SUFFER!

Something’s got to give. $180 a week, or almost $800 a month to rent a room in the High Park area (10 km away from the downtown core).

Toronto might be the first city in the world where there will be a neo-feudal backlash and eventually civil unrest.

People in NYC don’t work for free, and even when Manhattan is a tiny island, you don’t see numbered corporations doing this to tenants without a fight or legal action from the community. In Toronto, landlord kicks you out, and you’re on your own!

Canada has so much land, yet emulates the scarcity of land like Manhattan.

How many other cities in your website have suffered from censorship? Toronto seems to be the only city in Numbeo where comments are scrutinized like a microscope for any dissenting speech which gets flagged using SJW terms.

No one here is advocating for any hate speech, and the government officials are doing CENSORSHIP.

Complaining of low salaries, working for free graduates and high rents are tagged for censorship here. Shame!

better link to article

another article showing that Toronto is basically unaffordable for normal people.. «second largest real-estate bubble in the world».

In Toronto speaking your mind is effectively illegal.. complain about the reality of the situation here and you’ll be ostracized by people that are 20k in debt and have no future, all because you «offended» their delicate sensibilities.. the only people making it here are the super rich and the people dull enough to think working at Subway or Uber is a real career to be proud of.. if you have middle-class aspirations and want to start a family run as far away as possible.. even the successful guys I know making over 100k are basically losers here

Only 20% can afford a house.

Read article for more info.

The amount of thought policing and censorship in this politically correct city alone makes me paranoid of what I type.

Do you know what makes it even more scary?

Numbeo has been blacklisting IP addresses and even web browsers from Toronto to censor Torontonians from commenting here.

Toronto is a scam which requires the influx of monies from Alberta, Ottawa and immigrants to keep the facade going.

College students at Seneca, Centennial, Humber and George Brown are being told that they have to PAY thousands of dollars for a credit course to WORK for FREE and get ‘Canadian job experience’.

Toronto is a scam!

Stop subsidizing mansion dwellers with your hard work in sub-artic temperatures. This city is a scam.

Toronto is deteriorating if you’re a minimum wage worker or a student who will, in the future, have to work for free or even pay employers to hire you.

Toronto is however, a heaven for the top 1%, and also the Grade 8 educated Boomers who are now millionaires and using HELOCs and reverse mortgages to fund their vacations and becoming richer.

Toronto Boomers will harass you and attack you with racist slurs on the street, if you are a minority of student age, but as soon as a money launderer with suitcases of illegal money offers to buy homes for money laundering, the same Boomers will welcome them with open arms.

Toronto is also socially fragmented that if you’re a single male, you will end up spending lots of money for companionship, as the almighty dollar is valued rather than mutual friendships. Everything is terms of time as money in Toronto.

If you’re over 18, say goodbye to your future if you plan to move here!

I migrated here when I was 18, and today, at age 25, I am worse off than my peers in a 3rd world country!

I was in Italy not too long ago, and the rents were low (400 euro), the wine was great and cheap, and the food was amazing. There was a time when a tulip costed ten times the annual salary of a skilled worker. In Toronto, houses cost 10 times or more the annual salary of a skilled worker. For such a toxic city with failing infrastructure, lame entertainment and overpriced services, it reminds me of Tulipmania.

Again, the Real estate or politicians are pumping up the salary. It’s 2300.

Chinese money launderers are PAYING over $100,000 DOLLARS to get «jobs» for permanent residency! Work-for-free is nothing compared to this.

Indian citizens and Chinese are driving up house prices and causing homeless for everyone! And by Indian citizens, I refer to them Pageet from India who are flooding the gates of Canada to drive up house prices, drive down wages by work for free scams, and also other forms of hardship for Canadians.

To put that in context, there is now a single-car garage for sale in mid-town Toronto for $599,000. Meanwhile Pageet tries to impress his HR Manager by offering to work for free, not knowing that the HR Manager is not dressing that way to ask her for a date!

Pageets have been flooding Canada by the millions every year. They would scam a poor Indian in their home country, but they will beg to work for free in Canada. This is why I don’t like Pageets.

I have respect for those turban wearers as they are the real immigrants who help make Canada a better place. Pageets, on the other hand, are scam artists, lowballers and brown nosers for the whites.

And before you yell «racist», I am an Afro-Caribbean male whose relatives had to live with descendants of Indians for hundreds of years.

Indians are truly a scourge if they act like a Pageet. Luckily, most Indo-Caribbean peoples have assimilated and are not Pageets, but what the hell is wrong with Indians to ruin it for the rest of us?

High costs of living cause stress, which turns into anger, and this is a very angry city. Just watched a guy yell at Adam Sandler for no apparent reason. I see people yelling at each other every day.

There is no planning for augmenting the infrastructure to match the number of newcomers that arrive here every year. Sewage is being washed into lake Ontario every time there is heavy rainfall. Yet, someone like David Suzuki is called a racist for saying that Canada is beyond its capacity:

“Oh, I think Canada is full too! Although it’s the second largest country in the world, our useful area has been reduced. Our immigration policy is disgusting: We plunder southern countries by depriving them of future leaders, and we want to increase our population to support economic growth. It’s crazy!” Suzuki

There is no freedom of speech, you have to stick to the money making agenda. In Markham there was a protest against receiving refugees by a majority of foreign born new citizens from a specific ethnic group, and no one dared call them racist.

Donations to charities are down, because as a society, we do not care for each other any more. Just care about profit. I have friends who came from other countries, mostly Asia, and they believe in different versions of previous life crimes religions, that poor people have done something bad in a previous life, therefore the faster they are taken to re-incarnation (through dying in poverty), the better chances next life they’ll be alright. Are these Canadian values?

There are 100,000 people waiting for housing, yet they are only planning to build 600. They keep the prices high, to profit at all costs.

If Sharmini fled in the remote areas of Sri Lanka, rather than migrate to Canada, and brown nose for a local who murdered her, she would still be here living.

A local Canadian walks free, while Sharmini’s family grieves because the police have not charged anyone for the murder, though a police sergeant believes there is a suspect, but the suspect has more rights even if he went on raping and assaulting more women. This is Canada!

It just shows that these Pajeets will even worship a white man if he rapes and murders them for a job. This isn’t name-calling; this is facts!

These Pajeets also pay International fees for tuition, and after they graduate, they beg employers to work for free, lowering wages and increasing unemployment for those who aren’t boot lickers and brown nosers for the whites.

What did Britain do to India that Pajeets would risk everything to work for free? Honestly, this is unlike migrants who migrate for a higher salary or to make it big to retire in their home countries.

Pajeet wants to sell his mansion in India, use that money to study in these anti-male schools, and then beg to work for free. Tsk tsk!

These Pajeets are the only type of immigrant who leaves his affluent lifestyle in India to live in a crowded slum house of 3rd world conditions and work for free like a slave in Toronto, and willingly does this. They are driving down wages and increasing home prices for everybody.

8 months of winter and not enough money to make it worthwhile.. even if you work..

most successful guy i know making 6 figures bought some stupid 1 million dollar townhouse downtown on like a 30 year mortgage.. high ceilings sure, but still a narrow townhouse and no garage, and you have to be quiet at night..

if that’s the new pinnacle of success then the rest of us are basically fucked..

With a average home price of $646,732.

Garages go for $600,000 these days! And the slumlord will pack a few international students in there for $1,000 a month a piece.

This isn’t justified as good-paying jobs are scarce in Toronto, and graduates are even competing to work for unpaid internships aka work-for-free jobs.

Toronto is 15.73% lower than New York.

But in Toronto, it would be very rare to start with a US$65,000 a year job after graduating with an MBA or Master’s Degree. As a matter of truthfulness, jobs in finance, business, management and accounting are only reserved for those in certain social classes.

Ever read the story of the Guyanese lady who was unemployed for several years despite her MBA and work experience in Toronto? And then after becoming mentally unstable, she started stabbing up women in the underground downtown district?

Lots of immigrants, especially men, end up jumping the subway tracks and committing suicide because they were told a lie by the immigration consultants.

Educated migrants are also harassed on the streets of Toronto and accused of being illegal refugees. Trump’s racist ideas have infested Toronto.

You wanna come live in Toronto like a second class citizen, and spend everything that you have while chasing a false dream, and then have NOTHING if you want to leave this toxic city?

Look here, I’m from one of the poorest countries in the Caribbean islands (Haiti), and I want to return there because I hate this city. I don’t even have enough money to move to Montreal, and I doubt that there will be jobs for me because of the racism.

With a average home price of $646,732, a Torontonian would need an income of $92,220 in order to secure a 20 per cent down payment and qualify for a 30-year mortgage at a fixed rate of 3.75 per cent.

Problem is, the actual household average income in Toronto is $66,520, which leaves an income gap of roughly $25,700.

Remember, these are AVERAGE income estimates when you calculate the super rich earners but most people are earning well below these numbers.

Toronto is now the 5th most unaffordable city in the world

Toronto is like the city equivalent of Harvy Winestein. Over-rated, over-priced, famous, tolerated, people think it is a big deal until people start coming forward with their real stories, trials, and plain awfulness. Then all the people who made money out of it start defending him by calling others nut-jobs. Before you arrive you get all this misinformation telling you everything is going to be better than where you are. Once you are here, you are thrown into a toxic work and society where you are expected to fill in for those lazy people who just drink coffee and enjoy themselves watching movies, because they were here before. On top of that, they insult you or back stab you from all possible angles. You realize that to have rights to have to have lawyers, which means a lot of money that you do not earn. Newcomers to Canada who are not millionaires or money launderers have to survive with underemployment and wages that do not meet the cost of living. More than a third live in poverty, and have to go deep into debt just to survive. This can lead into depression, substance abuse, and quite dire ends. Their solution is to bring more people, to replace the ones who burned out. Where are the refugees from the photo-ops now? Some estimates say that 1 out of 10 of the non-family or association sponsored ones managed to get a job, the others are barely scraping by on social assistance. Of the family or association sponsored ones, 1 out of 2 is jobless. Google month 13 refugees.
Go check the calculator here in Numbeo. The numbers do not add a car, and other things that some people expect to have once they come to Canada. You work hard for others’ wealth building, not for you. You need 4800 for a family of four a month. Plus 3000 for a crappy rental. That is 7800 a month. They pay 2400 a month for a full time 40 hours a week job. If you manage to get a job for your wife, that is 2400 a month. 4800. You have not covered rent yet.

And don’t make eye contact with someone who was not introduced to you, they are overly-sensitive about being approached without a signed consent.

Aside from the hyperbolic comments, some of which could be true to some unfortunate souls, Toronto does seem to be a very lacklustre city and chasing materialism and a lifestyle to nowhere. You could study for years and years and waste not only hundreds of thousands of dollars in tuition and lost wage time, but also lose on your life, and still face the existential threat of homelessness in this city.

Unless you are born into wealth and are of a privileged group of people, it is very hard to even find jobs which pay over C$40,000 a year these days with a Master’s degree.

The job market of Toronto, is rife with nepotism, cronyism and elitist attitudes. If you’re not part of the club, you ain’t in it.

Same goes for friendships and dating. Everything is a clan these days in Toronto. Don’t even think that the local Canadians will accept a foreign migrant as a friend for a long-term basis. A few might help you spend your life savings while you land, but after that and you are pennyless, they could care fuq all if you freeze in minus 30 weather during winter.

Try talking to the locals here. They will call the cops on you for harassment. Try even to meet friends, and they will call security on you for harassing women and children.

Toronto is an anti-social city and it’s a clannish community.

Toronto is really awesome for the filthy, nauseatingly rich millionaires, there are many with money outside of the country who declare minimum income, despite having two Porsche and a 10M condo, and get social assistance. Why the government does not go against them? Because they can pay for expensive lawyers who will fight back.
Being rich is awesome, not being rich really sucks. It takes up to 20 years to save for a downpayment, and that is if you live in a dark basement eating mash potato sandwiches or food bank stuff (the food banks are not reliable: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/food-bank-summer-struggles-1.5264572)

The financial pressures are beyond human energy. Do you math if you fall in the categories below:
https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2020/09/04/for-young-canadian-families-the-financial-pressures-have-never-been-greater.html

I don’t understand why government of Canada doesn’t help new immigrants and their own people regarding affordable housing, lower cost of living, increasing minimum wage or decreasing all costs of living? What I am saying is real , I repeat, real assistance to people, not propaganda in the media,

If all is about capitalism, United states has capitalism system but everything from renting or housing market or cost of living is way lower than Canada, don’t forget that they have more population than Canada, but they managed the country way better than Canada.

Canada is super rich country but their politicians and supper rich billionaires should decide to spend their natural resources and other wealths for the sake of their own people ,I think the political system is very stingy here. Instead of making money from poor people they should spend money for people to make their life better.

Toronto housing a rip-off!

Real estate in Toronto is a scam!

There are no good paying jobs, but Landlords and home owners expect you to pay Manhattan prices for their overpriced particle board homes.

Jp says sth and 99 others say sth else, from my calculations I can guess now 1/(1+99) ?

Good luck and enjoy potential membership.

And look at this ivory tower liberal condemning posts which lament the jobless situation, housing and poverty in Toronto, while JP herself boasts of living in US$2,000 or C$3,000 a month upscale condos.

Doesn’t that sound very illogical?

Condemn the poor in Toronto for complaining, while bragging of «saving US$1,000 on car insurance» when over half of low-income Torontonians can’t even afford to pay gas or even a bus fare for work.

What agenda does JP have to scoff at the poor complaining, while promoting a false image of Toronto.

Newcomers aren’t gonna afford those upscale condos, and there are stories that money laundering is a factor in the so-called «condo boom» of Toronto. Over 65% of those condo units are owned by anonymous numbered corporations which are tied to shady individuals who are accused of horrific acts waging from financial impropriety to war crimes in third world countries.

Toronto has a growing divide between social and economic classes, and I support anyone where who explains their plight as the lower income groups of Toronto.

Well to do and upper middle class posters like JP are very anti-poor and they scoff at the poor complaining.

Keep on posting JP, because when the economic recession comes at the door, the posters who are living in poverty in Canada would need to grab some popcorn and mock your propaganda piece and laugh at the lies and realtor shilling.

«World class city»

#Realtor or government shill detected.

You are posting PROPAGANDA and trying to discredit the 99 other comments. What makes you so special? You are posting lies and half-truths.


Toronto is like a Pyramid scheme. Only the top 1% takes all the earnings.

You, the experienced, educated and professional foreigner, will sell everything you have in your home country, what you OWN, to pay RENT to a slumlord and racist landlord who will jack up the rent prices next year because he can?

On top of that, you will live in a slum area using your life savings, and crime which is unheard of in your home country will affect you and your family.

It doesn’t matter if you come with the C$10,000 minimum requirement or the C$499,999 that many of you gullible immigrants carry here; it’s all funnelled to enrich the few, while you SUFFER here and remain in a WORSE social status than if you remained in your home country.

Reality check! There are hundreds of thousands of international students living in crowded rooms, dying from drug overdoses and suicide, and they have to beg to work for more than 20 hours. They even beg to work for free, like the «Pajeets» from India.

Is this what you want? Don’t migrate unless you obtain a solid job offer and a job contract which allows you to work in other foreign subsidiaries of the company. Don’t end up trapped in Toronto because YOU WILL REGRET MOVING TO THIS DUMP!

That is all I’m going to say. If you want to leave your stable life and come here to work in factories, cleaning public toilets or even beg to work for free with thousands of «Pajeets», then be my guest.

Toronto is a city which is DECLINING and getting WORSE for the middle class and the poor.

I am Canadian and I can say that the problem with this city being artificially over-priced, is a problem that affects everyone who does not have millions of dollars. See this article, where a woman was forced to pay 4000 for rent a month to stay alive. The rent prices and the income prices here are not accurate. Please enter the real prices and ask everyone you know to do so.
People are dying to live here, literally. And the realtors and corrupt politicians keep holding hands making everything more expensive. There are no good political options. libel-als and con-servatives favor the rich and land owning. ND-P is a joke with OCD about homeless and addicts, but no care for middle income renters. A third of this city has it good. A third of this city is forever poor and suffering, and a third of a city is replaced each year like a snake sheds its skin.

Imagine immigrating here as a teenager, doing very well in High school, and suddenly once going to university that means squat because of identity politics. One mistake and everything is destroyed. Toronto is a cold-hearted, merciless and ruthless city, as the days of the European settlers who murdered the Native Indians in cold blood back in the 1800s to sell bungalows for millions of dollars today.

I was harassed, slandered and bullied as a student of a university in downtown Toronto because I spoke to a Canadian female using a Yankee accent. What made matters worse was that I, a non-white, was treated just like a pariah for complaining and they forced me to take psychiatric drugs and counselling because they didn’t like my complaints.

One mistake in Toronto, and everything you have is GONE! Why come to Toronto as a millionaire and leave homeless or in a casket?

Toronto is a corporate bureaucracy which profits from identity politics, but they view us, the non-whites with accents as outsiders. I honestly can’t change my accent to «Toronto» as I’ll sound like a retarded Los Angeles prick.

Why is there a government agent or realtor artificially increasing the average salary of Toronto, while artificially reducing the rent prices?

$1,300 is not the minimum rent for a one-bedroom anywhere in Toronto, even in the suburban ghettos where many live in fear, except the slumlord living in his Bridle Path or Rosedale mansion with his family living like royalty.

Lots of immigrants came from countries where stuff like ghettoes, pimping, drug crises and other social ills are unheard of. Why put your family into such a terrible situation?

Why come to Toronto to rent a ROOM inside a basement for over $1,000 a month for, and have your family live in deplorable conditions while bad influences will destroy your family? If you send your son or daughter to the low-income schools, they will forever be discriminated in the job market. You have to afford living in a good area with good schools so the employers will not throw their resumes in the bin.

The social culture of Toronto is very toxic that the unemployed and underemployed are resorting to opiates like fentanyl and heroine to alleviate their suffering.

If you, a father or mother, really love your children, and care for their future, DO NOT come to Toronto living in a low-income ghetto with the stigma that being poor perpetuates. If you are living as a respected man or woman in your home country, you are way better off there than coming to Toronto and having to spend your life savings, and then your salaries on living in a slum area where crime is rampant.

If you love your son or daughter, ensure that they don’t fall into the trap of the ghettoes of Toronto, as 99% of professional class immigrants usually end up into.

If you’re a millionaire, the best solution, is to send them as international students to study, but then again, the toxic social culture might force them to jump the tracks in the TTC or consume fentanyl to escape the hell of this city.

I came from a third world country, and Toronto is declining WORSE than any third world country in the Western hemisphere, even HAITI. Do you think that even the starving and poor Haitians would settle to WORK FOR FREELY to some elitist company or for the European elite there? Hell forking NO!

Being poor here is being like a minority race in South Africa during apartheid. You will be discriminated punitively, and the locals will view you like a savage, and the white man’s burden, EVEN IF YOU ARE MORE EDUCATED THAN THEM!

I wish I hadn’t placed so much faith in Toronto, or even Canada as a whole, and instead saved up my cash until I had enough to live somewhere else, but then again, Toronto is a TRAP, and once you’re in here, THERE IS NO ESCAPE!

Finally, the real statistics are coming out. You need three full time incomes to afford housing in Toronto. People making 150k can end up living in basements as this article says. Keep this in mind if you want to leave everything behind to come to a city where the working class is chronically exhausted and permanently under-paid. It is cold hard economics. Supply and Demand: supply, there are too many workers, demand, they build as little housing as possible to keep the prices artificially high. When sanity prevailed, people were paid good money to freeze their fingers off here for six months every year. Now, they have to pay for that priviledge. This is what the free world has to offer.

And in London Ontario, a man who experience the high quality of life that Canada says it offers, did this:

This is a love speech: for the love of your life, of your dear ones, of your health, of anything you care about, do your research before coming to Toronto. The quality of life that they advertise is not for all. It is for those who can afford it. No money equals no happiness here.

Those are two articles that tell you:
1- locals are lonely and sad
2- if you don’t have that amount to survive, you will go into debt, which will sap away your health and energy.

If you manage to get an iron-clad contract (one that, in the event you lose your job, you will get enough severance to go back home safely), a good salary (upwards of 200k Canadian dollars), then you might be okay. All the prices here in Numbeo are mostly accurate, except for income. Some real estate con-artists keep pumping it up to make it look, like you can earn that. The main skill you need, is politics, to behave obsequiously with your superiors, for your own advantage, and the right look.

I am Canadian, I love immigrants, that is why I want to save them.

The anger in Toronto is noticeable. Only someone who has a grudge against the system would do a thing such as poisoning the dogs of the Yuppies who are gentrifying the low-income areas of Toronto:

Canada is no joke!!
Most of the immigrant you guys are talking about below do not come prepared!
Toronto is amazing cosmopolitan city and has lots of opportunity if you are really skilled and capable to offer the level of professionalism they’re looking for.
Otherwise you can always study or look for bridging programs that can also help you leverage your working situation.

Otherwise, please STOP the hate speech and STOP scaring people!

To the prospective migrant to Toronto.

1. A professional such as lawyers, doctors, accountants, scientists
2. A married or single male from age 18 to 59.
3. Someone who is viewed as a self-sufficient, upper, «high caste» class in your home country

1. You do not have a job offer to work in Toronto.

I repeat. DON’T come here because you will HAVE A HARD TIME even finding a low wage job in Toronto.

Toronto is for those of identity politics, the elites, Caucasian females and those who are fleeing war-torn countries. Don’t come here to clean public toilets in Toronto when you are a respected man in your home country. Are you that gullible of the lies that the Canadian government tells you?

Read how many threats have been made against us posting here by the City of Toronto autocrats for free speech to complain of this city! That alone should tell you how Toronto is a bad place.

Not only has the cost of renting a home been getting higher and higher in Toronto, but the quality of private rental properties has been getting worse and worse. People are expected to live in cramped, inadequate housing, often in unsafe conditions – often for extortionate prices, such as $1,500 a month to rent a room inside a moldy basement of the Dufferin-Little Portugal area of Toronto.

Statistics released in 2020 showed that the number of people aged between 25 and 45 living in flat or house shares due to unaffordable homes had risen by 500% since 2007. There are so few affordable properties that people are increasingly living in overcrowded house shares, well beyond their student years.

To make matters worse, commentators from statistical website Numbeo have complained that the way to get their foot in the door of the Toronto job market is to work for free for a few years.

Revolutionary socialism is the only genuine opposition to the landlord class. No one is building low-cost homes in Toronto. Instead we have seen suburbs of North York, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Peel, York and Durham regions burgeon with expensive houses for the upper-middle class.

And then the conservatives, from Doug Ford, to Andrew Scheer, to Maxime Bernier, tell us that the country is full. Too many immigrants, not enough space. This deceit aims to divide the workforce along national and racial lines. Immigrants are not the source of the housing crisis. The ruling landlord class is, by defending their decaying capitalist system.

When immigrants are working for free in the hopes to get a job, this is not based on altruism, but coercion and deception.

Meaning of the word «to volunteer»
noun
1.
a person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task.

These suckers who migrate to Canada and then work for free in Toronto with the hopes of receiving future paid employment in their fields is doing it based on coercion and false realities.

It is not any attack on anyone to point out that it’s mainly East Indians who are begging to work for free.

You don’t even see poor Filipinos or Vietnamese doing that and instead they WORK as nannies for $15/hr, rather than drive down wages for everyone else, like my fellow Pajeet who wouldn’t even forgive one single rupee of debt to a poor villager, but works for free for the descendants of his colonial masters in Toronto.

Canada is escalating further and further down to the ground, life is not valued in Toronto. Lady was knocked down by truck, and driver sped off the scene & didn’t report the collision.

Очень важная для вас статья:  Криминал в Ванкувере Канада

Come to Canada and work for free and die like a dog like this lady:

So it’s not an exaggeration that immigrants, mainly foreign students are working for free in Toronto. This country is going to the dogs and reaching third world status. Doug Ford has made cuts to healthcare and honestly if healthcare is not paid for by the government, who would want to live here?

Healthcare is one of the largest industries in Canada. Ford is spiting his face by cutting healthcare. Who is going to pay for the $2,000 a month to rent a slumlord apartment in a suburb of Toronto if the nurses and pharmacy assistants lose their jobs?

And then these Patels and Pajeets are coming here from India and working for free because they are bootlickers for whites, just like how British ruled India for over 400 years and only Ghandi and a few others revolted. Passive Asians.

Toronto has NO economy like NYC. Tim Hortons jobs and janitor jobs are already hard to get these days, much less finding a job in your field. Welfare is a measly $700 a month, but to rent a room inside a basement goes for over $1,000 a month, and if you work you lose your benefits by a large percentage for every dollar earned. Do the math before coming here.

Hey Guys! I finally figured it out how to make it in Tranna (and Vancouva)!

You start private schools, charge big bucks, buy a mansion and four condos, air bnb the condos to extract every penny from naive newcomers, then don’t pay wages. The efficient ministry of labour takes 3 years to get back the wages many broke students who just graduated, both canadian and newcomers do not have energy or resources to fight back thanks to the boomer-oriented economy, and if convicted of 1.6 million dollars, you only get to pay 50k! Or a year in the can, if you are that cheap. It’s a really good deal. If you don’t pay taxes for the condos and house, they cannot take them away, because CRA is soooo smart, that they will protect your property from greedy millenials. For more on this:

Those schools continue to operate, by the way. That’s how the maple syrup cookey crombles!

Western world is in a steep decline. The economy is suffering across all Western countries and extremist ideology is becoming more and more mainstream — eg. Trumpanzees. Education is failing and people are becoming ignorant, racist and uncivil. Canada’s economy is mainly natural resource based and there is no innovation so the only jobs left for educated newcomers are menial dead end jobs. AGAIN, do not bring your hard earned savings to this country as there is no end goal here apart from survival. Your savings will be drained within a few months and you will join the millions of broke wage slaves hustling for money daily.

If this is your idea of a lifestyle upgrade then do as you please but don’t say you weren’t warned. Remember the climate in Canada is absolute sh*t and traveling is expensive when every penny counts.

It is very true that you are no longer guaranteed a job, even a minimum wage job after earning your diploma and degree in Toronto.

As a recent graduate, I’ve known some friends from other colleges who have a very hard time finding jobs. Centennial College even has a working for experience program called Design Jam, where graduates work for no salary for 3 months, just to obtain «Canadian experience». Slavery is here in Toronto and it’s in the form of internships. Lots of Toronto agencies are «looking for volunteers everyday», but they are not hiring.

Don’t think for a second that us non-whites are safe in this country either. Police are biased, the legal system is biased, and racism is increasing as if Toronto has imported uneducated racists from the deep south. Toronto is not a world class city. It’s a very capitalist, clannish and social strata messhole and it’s only getting worse for the poor.

A recession is coming. If you think graduates applying to work for free in Toronto is bad, wait until the global recession hits. Toronto graduates will beg to PAY employers to work for free! Who in their right mind would leave their middle class lifestyle far east to live in this recession-dump of Toronto?

Even if you had a million dollars how long would that last in Canada? You’d be foolish to bring your savings to Canada. Why not invest in other avenues if you had a million dollars?

Where did you get the figure of $45,000 yearly salary in Toronto? That must be for the downtown and Lawrence Park/Bridle Path elites who skew the average figure due to their high (and extremely high for Lawrence Park) incomes.

The average working class wage for Torontonians living in the ghettos of North York and Scarborough is roughly $23,000 yearly after taxes. Wages are going DOWN in Toronto.

Graduates of Seneca, Humber and Centennial College are even struggling to be «hired» for work-for-free internships, and they even face competition for MLM scams. I’m not joking. It’s very hard to even get unpaid internships to work as free labour.

Toronto’s construction boom means there are a lot of new condos and apartment buildings all over the city. Use Walk Score to find a luxury three bedroom apartment with a view or a classic row home that’s close to a subway station. The Church-Yonge corridor has newer studio and one bedroom apartments, as does the University neighborhood.

With so much urban density, single family homes are a little harder to find, but there are some nice restored houses with gardens in suburbs that are walking distance from the commuter train stations. Closer to the city, you’ll find two bedroom apartments in brick buildings with shared gardens.

Eating & Drinking

There are about 6,357 restaurants, bars and coffee shops in Toronto.

People in Toronto can walk to an average of 2 restaurants, bars and coffee shops in 5 minutes.

KEY FACTS:

Toronto, Ontario

Nickname(s): «The Queen City»

Lifestyle and Culture

Toronto is rich in cultural events that animate the city. It is home to 80 film festivals, 200 performing arts organizations, and countless galleries. It also boasts symphony, ballet, and opera companies that have gained world-wide recognition.

Entertainment and Tourism

One of the unique features of this city is that so many Canadian actors had their beginnings in Toronto. Whether though an arts school or an introductory role, there’s a good chance that they started here. Toronto is also home to many well-known entertainment companies such as MTV. This makes the city a big breeding ground for those in the arts & music industries that are looking to make it big one day!
Toronto has an overwhelming abundance of activities that tourists and citizens can do in their spare time. With over 75 film festivals, art galleries spanning different genres, and hundreds of performing art organizations, you will be hard-pressed to run out of things to do. If you manage to stay in the downtown area for an afternoon, the CN Tower is a popular tourist site. It spent many years as the world’s tallest tower before it was overtaken by the likes of the Burj Khalifa and many others.

Neighbourhoods

Toronto consists of 4 main sections, each spanning multiple districts and neighbourhoods: Old Toronto (a.k.a. Downtown Core), Etobicoke, North York, and Scarborough.

NORTH

North York

North York, as one can deduce from its name, is located on the northern part of Toronto. Spanning over 35 different neighbourhoods, there are plenty of things for its residents to do and see. In particular, the high concentration of shopping malls makes it a very attractive tourist hub for those visiting the city. The low crime statistics here are also appealing to those who are looking for a safe neighbourhood to live in.

Scarborough

Scarborough is located in the eastern part of Toronto, and is the least dense out of all the districts with respect to its population and number of homes. The main attractions here include Milliken Park and Rouge Park, which are hotspots for those who take a special interest in long hikes, wildlife, and seeing the scenic sights of nature.

SOUTH

Etobicoke

Etobicoke is located on the western part of Toronto, and has the highest concentration of suburban homes and industrial factories within the city. With many high quality schools and ease of access to the Downtown Core, this ends up being a great district for those who enjoy the city life but prefer to live in a much quieter area.

Old Toronto

The Downtown Core is regarded by many as the economic powerhouse of the city. As the host of several businesses and tourist attractions, it receives a heavy volume of traffic on a daily basis and has a very exuberant nightlife. Many up and coming professionals earn higher wages and have the finances to afford a home that is in close proximity to their workplace.

Real Estate Market

The Downtown Core is home to several high-end condos (low-rise and high-rise), with many more under development. If you are a student, you will also be pleased to find many rental apartments that are within walking distance of your university/college campus. Be warned, as these homes are known to be very costly! The convenience of where these homes are located makes it one of the hottest housing markets in the country.
Etobicoke is home to many suburb homes that are better suited for smaller families. Expect to find many semi-detached homes and townhouses, with the occasional bungalow and mansion-sized house for those that are able to afford it. With multiple suburban developments underway, this area will see an influx of new residents over time.
Scarborough tends not to have many homes available, and for good reason. These are giant homes that occupy multiple beds and bathrooms, in addition to having massive property spaces that allow for amenities such as pools and tennis courts to be built at the owner’s discretion.
North York possess the most diverse range of houses out of all the districts, offering homes ranging from smaller apartments and condos to larger suburb-like homes. The competitiveness of the housing market will vary depending on the region that you choose to live in.

  • Average Home Price: $535,690
  • Average Rent Price: $1,520.45
  • Average Condo Price: $407,638
  • Average Detached Home Price: $952,983
Home Style Average Price
2 storey $974,937
Bungalow $698,194
Condominium $407,638

The following table, based on data taken from the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA’s) National MLS® Report for July 2020 (the latest information available), demonstrates how homes in LSTAR’s jurisdiction continue to maintain their affordability compared to other major Ontario and Canadian centers.

Education

Toronto is home to the University of Toronto, York University, and Ryerson University. The University of Toronto is internationally recognized as one of the top research universities in the world, and is amongst the Top 3 universities in Canada when it comes to its medical school. York University offers the only space engineering program in Canada for its students, and Ryerson University tends to be well known for its prestigious business school.
As for elementary schools (K-8), there are roughly 450 public schools currently registered under the Toronto District School Board. Boasting one of the most highly educated populations in the entire world, Toronto is no stranger to the idea of valuable education at an early age.

Economic Overview & Outlook

Seeing as Toronto accounts for roughly 20% of Canada’s GDP, it only follows that it plays a significant role within the Canadian economy. In the past 3 decades, Toronto has seen a big rise in the development of service-based industries. Many large corporations have established a keystone building here or decided to put their headquarters within the city for this very reason. In particular, the industries within Toronto seeing the most growth and development right now are finance, real estate, computer engineering/software development, pharmaceuticals, fashion, and entertainment.

About Toronto

With a population just short of 3 million people, the city of Toronto is the largest in Canada, and one of the largest in North America (behind only Mexico City, New York and Los Angeles). The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) includes around 6.5 million people, stretching along the shore of Lake Ontario and including suburban communities further inland.

Toronto is also one of the most multicultural cities in the world, making life in Toronto a wonderful multicultural experience for all. More than 140 languages and dialects are spoken in the city, and almost half the population Toronto were born outside Canada.

Although not the capital city of the country – that particular honour rests with Ottawa – Toronto is nonetheless the centre of many of Canada’s industries, and therefore it offers many economic opportunities to new arrivals.

Consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world, Toronto enjoys a reputation as an exciting, diverse, clean, and safe city to set up home.

The city also offers 50 kilometres of waterfront with beaches, parks, marinas and waterfront trail, making it easy to enjoy the lake and outdoor life within the GTA.

Toronto climate

Life in Toronto wouldn’t be the same without the weather.

You can depend on experiencing all four clearly defined seasons in Toronto. While winters aren’t as extreme as many other parts of Canada, they can still be quite severe, and frustratingly long. Expect around four months of winter weather from December to March, inclusive. Temperatures can drop as low as -20 degrees Celsius before wind chill is factored in, so a proper winter coat and boots are an essential purchase. Outlet stores, such as the one in Vaughan Mills, sell winter coats and boots at greatly reduced prices when they are out of season, so if you can take the time to visit there during spring or summer you can save yourself a couple of hundred dollars.

There tends to be quite a short spring season in April and May before the summer heat kicks in. Toronto can get quite humid during the hot summer months, so if your house or apartment doesn’t have air conditioning built in, then buying a window air-con machine is a sound investment. A store like Canadian Tire sells them at varying prices.

Life in Toronto: living costs

Living in Toronto, particularly anywhere near downtown, can be expensive. Rents are among the highest in Canada, and other standard monthly expenses such as phone plans, groceries, and transit are not cheap either.

Analysts at LowestRates.ca calculated that to get by in Toronto a person needs to be earning a salary of $40,583 (before tax) to meet the living costs of the city.

Here are the average expected monthly bills for someone living alone in Toronto:

Total 2688.48
Housing $1672.13
Phone & internet $127.50
Transit & taxis/Uber/Lyft $176.25
Groceries $283.60
Entertainment $354.00
Health & fitness $75.00

Fortunately, wages in Toronto are also quite good across the spectrum, and the provincial government has passed legislation that raised the minimum wage in Ontario from $11.60 per hour to $14 per hour as of January 2020. A planned increase to a minimum wage of $15 was shelved following a change in the provincial government in 2020.

A pint of beer in Toronto can cost you between $7 and $10, depending on where you are. Tipping is expected; a dollar per drink is a decent guide if you are buying from the bar, or if you’re running a tab somewhere between 15-20% of the overall bill is the norm.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that when you secure a lease on a house or apartment, it is likely to come unfurnished. That means you will need to factor in the cost of obtaining all your furniture as well.

Toronto transit

Living without a car is advisable for many people living in Toronto, and most people manage to get by without owning a vehicle. Fortunately, public transit, run by the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), is very comprehensive and can take you just about everywhere you need to go in Toronto. There are two main subway lines: Line 1 goes north/south, and Line 2 goes east/west. There are two additional, shorter lines on the outskirts of the city: Line 3 to Scarborough and Line 4 to Don Mills.

Subways run frequently, as often as every two minutes in rush hour and about every five minutes at other times. Service runs approximately 6 a.m. to 2 a.m., with an 8 a.m. start on Sundays.

A monthly pass costs $146.25 and gives you unlimited travel on the TTC for a calendar month. You can buy these from the collector’s booth at any station. A single fare costs $3.25, so you’ll need to be making 45 trips per month, or 12 per week, for it to be cost effective. For most people working five days a week, it’s worth your while.

The TTC has discounts for students and seniors. You can see its list of fare prices here.

The TTC is in the middle of transitioning to a new fare payment system called PRESTO. If you’re new to Toronto, you may as well get on board with it now, as from 2020 onwards it will be the only way to pay your fare. The PRESTO system is also in used in other transit systems in Ontario, such as Brampton Transit, MiWay in Mississauga, Go Transit, and York Region Transit/Viva.

Очень важная для вас статья:  Что посмотреть в BC Канада

A PRESTO card costs $6, and you can top it up online, over the phone, at some Shoppers Drug Mart locations, or at reload machines at some TTC stations. There’s a lot more information on the PRESTO system here. Once you have credit on your card, you tap one of the readers when you enter a bus, streetcar, or station to pay your fare. It’s also possible to upload a monthly pass to your card, and daily cap limits are scheduled to be be introduced later in 2020.

Another benefit of the PRESTO card is that you can create an online account, so if you happen to lose your card you can simply cancel it and transfer your balance over to a new card online.

If you are commuting in from suburban areas such as Mississauga, Brampton, York Region or Hamilton, you can catch a Go Train or bus – these run to Union Station in the heart of downtown Toronto, and from there you can connect to the TTC.

Public transit is cheaper and more convenient than having a car, for which you’d have to pay insurance, gas, regular maintenance, and city parking fees. Parking spots are hard to come by, and you’ll need a parking permit from the City for your neighborhood. The cost varies depending on where you live but expect to pay upwards of $200 for anywhere even close to downtown.

Some Torontonians forego the option of owning a car, but frequently use one of the many carsharing options in Toronto.

As of 2020, Lyft has moved in to Toronto to offer some competition to Uber for cab rides. Both are quite reasonably priced compared to city taxis.

Toronto with k >

Toronto is a wonderful place to bring up kids – it’s safe, clean, and offers them the opportunity to experience so many cultures in their everyday life. There are also many great options for third-level education. Kids generally enjoy life in Toronto.

Childcare is among the most expensive in Canada, however, and for infants it will cost an average of $1,758 per month.

To find schooling, the website of the Toronto School Board will help you find out what options are available near you.

Dining out in Toronto

The cultural diversity of Toronto ensures that eating out offers a multitude of choices for any and every budget. Almost all bars serve food, and it is common to start a night out with a meal as well as a few drinks.

Each neighbourhood has its own selection of great places to eat, and there are many websites providing information on Toronto’s culinary scene, such as Dine.to, and Toronto.com, which provide ratings and recommendations.

If there’s a particular restaurant that takes your fancy but appears out of your budget, wait until Summerlicious or Winterlicious roll around. These are set weeks each year (one in Summer, one in Winter) to promote Toronto’s hospitality industry where more than 200 restaurants across the city take part. The participating restaurants offer a prix-fixe menu for reduced prices.

Toronto nightlife

Toronto has a well-founded reputation for having a great bar and nightclub scene. There are many, many options and venues to suit all tastes.

King West is home to many bars and typically has more of a young professional vibe, whereas the scene on Queen West tends to be more indie. The strip on Ossington, from Dundas Street down to Queen Street is another area with a host of options. The east end tends to be home to more local bars, as opposed to nightclubs which are typically in the downtown or western part of the city.

The LGBT scene is centred around the Church & Wellesley intersection, with loads of bars and clubs to choose from.

Closing time is 2.30 a.m., although there are many nights during the year when select bars get extended opening hours until 4 a.m.

Festivals in Toronto

During the summer in particular, it seems like there’s a festival of some sort or other almost every weekend. Here are some of the most notable festivals in Toronto:

  • Caribana – Billed as the continent’s largest street festival, 1.3 million people celebrate Toronto’s rich Caribbean tradition every August on Lakeshore Boulevard and in Exhibition Place. Caribana is the centrepiece of Caribbean culture and life in Toronto.
  • Taste of Little Italy – College Street is closed between Bathurst and Dufferin for this celebration of Italian food and music.
  • Taste of the Danforth – Similar to its Italian counterpart, this east end street festival is an ode to the Greek community and its culture.
  • Nuit Blanche – This annual all-night arts festival brings art to the streets of Toronto, which acts as a gallery in itself.
  • VELD – Takes place uptown in Downsview Park, it caters for fans of dance and hip-hop.

Biking in Toronto

Biking is hugely popular for those living in Toronto, and it’s possible to bike year-round if you get the right winter gear. Much, though not all, of downtown has dedicated bike lanes.

Be warned — if you’re done for breaking rules of the road on your bike you can actually get penalty points on your Ontario driver’s licence. Toronto has a great system of ravines where you can cycle for miles on bike paths, mostly running north-south.

A cheap second-hand hand bike might set you back anything from $50 to $250 from a used bike store. An average new bike from, say, Canadian Tire, will cost around $150 to $300. A high-end bike from any of the trendy bike stores in town can go up into the thousands.

If you are going to cycle in Toronto, get the proper gear. Invest in a helmet, front and rear lights, and proper brakes – and be careful of the streetcar tracks.

Life in Toronto: things you’ll notice

The PATH

This is an underground network of over 30 kilometres worth of shopping, services, and entertainment, and is the biggest underground shopping complex in the world. The network covers much of the downtown core and links to many subway stations and high-rise office blocks.

It can be difficult for newcomers to navigate, however, so check out this map before exploring, as you can get lost. If you are able to master the PATH, it can make life in Toronto a bit easier in winter and it is useful for staying out of the cold downtown.

The people

Torontonians generally don’t fit the stereotype of the friendly, overly apologetic, Canadians that the rest of the world is used to. People here in Toronto will be first to tell you that. Being a part of such a big, bustling city, people get somewhat hardened after experiencing a bit of life in Toronto. That being said, the people of Toronto are still generally very nice, and it has a relaxed and very tolerant attitude most of the time.

Many people in the city also identify very strongly with Toronto itself, rather than Canada as a nation. Toronto is much more diverse than other parts of Canada, and some minorities feel apathetic to the idea of Canadian identity but love their city.

Also, be prepared to like Drake. The rapper is the city’s biggest advocate, and Torontonians are very proud of him. If you are negative about Drake, be prepared to be told you’re wrong!

Renting tips & advice

When considering a move to a new rental property, whether it is a room for rent, luxury condo, house rental or apartment for rent, it is a good idea to keep the following rental tips in mind when searching thoroughly through property rental listings.

Set And Keep To Your Budget

Toronto prices for rent can be expensive enough, living in this city can make things even more difficult if you overextend your finances by renting something you simply cannot afford. There are so many great areas to choose from and a world class transit system that makes getting around town an absolute breeze. Do your research and find places that are within your budget and will allow you to get out, explore the city and experience what makes living here so amazing!

Ask The Landlord Plenty Of Relevant Questions

Apartment owners and landlords want to know they are considering a good prospective tenant when speaking with you. Help them make an informed rental decision by showing them you understand the tenant-landlord relationship and want yours to be a strong and positive one. Asking questions such as; is a long-term lease available? Are additional parking spaces available? Do they accept rent payment via credit card? And other questions of that nature will show that you’re at the decision stage and ready to move forward and move in!

If You Like It, Rent It

While there is an abundant supply of good quality rental units, there are literally tens of thousands of prospective tenants looking to move into the city every month. When you see something for rent that matches your wish list and is within your budget, contact the landlord immediately. Any hesitation and it could be the difference between you renting the property or someone else ultimately living in what was supposed to be your new home. Be prepared to invest time searching for the right rental unit for you. If you would like to search for your next home by location, use the ApartmentLove.com Search By Map tool to make your search a little easier.
