It’s rough. My place is not rent controlled, so I live in constant fear of getting priced out at any moment.

Same here

I came here in my twenties hated the silence in places like Mississauga so I moved here in Downtown . Not all areas have the chaos . Plus I got a sweet place during covid low on rent and governed by Rent control so I cant complain much . But affordability in general is a question mark here . I live in a 1 bhk+ den and cant even imagine upgrading right now paying just under 2k

I have a 401k from my previous employer. With my new employer I started a Roth 401k. My question is what would be the best thing to do with the old 401k? Leave it where it is? Should I move it to an IRA or join it with my new Roth 401k?
