Hello Torontonians, I moved from Toronto to the UK exactly a year ago for another job opportunity, with how expensive everything was, I thought it was a good idea. Curious to know, if anything has changed or improved in Toronto?

Where was it cheaper? Did it work out for you in the UK?

I moved to Nottingham and it’s much cheaper here. Not because UK is not in a crisis like Toronto but you just have more options here to live cheap if you wish to. For example: multiple grocery stores offering competitive pricing, exchange rate is better and travel abroad in general, I travel to the east a lot so it worked out better for me to be here.
However, London would be a completely different story. I decided to live outside London and train it there whenever I want to have a good time

You working in UK with your Canadian passport?

Yes, look up youth mobility scheme for Canadians

Going downhill TBH.
Would love to move to the Uk, any tips?

Looks like recession is everywhere!
Thanks for the info.

Why UK over US? UK pays lower if it’s money that you want

Oh I meant closer to the east side of the world - Middle East, far east etc.
And US permitting just about anyone to own a gun goes beyond any ‘common’ sense I believe. In my personal decision making, I felt more comfortable with this move

Who are these people responding to surveys asking for full time return to office? Seems like every firm is now citing these surveys and how in office work leads to better productivity and mental health? No, spending 1 - 2 hours a day commuting, waking up earlier and sleeping early, displacing actual mental health boosting events like the gym with being stuck in traffic, and additional work that comes from being in the office does NOT boost my mental health.
