How is consulting pay in Canada? I’m based in Europe and pay is pretty bad relative to US, but both my SO and I agree that we’d rather not live in the US or impose US citizenship on our kids when we have them (also it looks pretty hard to get visas in the first place). Would Canada offer good pay (not as good as tier 1 cities in US but higher than London/Paris/Lux etc) or would the move not be worth it?
