I’m a Canadian citizen but I never lived in Canada.
Currently in 🇨🇭 and planning to move to Canada for the experience. However it seems that the salaries are super low compared to the US or Switzerland. Is that because of the high taxes? Does $82k in Vancouver/Calgary allows you to live decently or am I gonna struggle? Current TC USD92k (CHF83k) and it would take a big hit by moving to Canada. But at the same time 🇨🇭 is one of the most expensive countries in the world.

Well the salaries are lower here compared to Switzerland or the US for the simple reason that the living costs are so much lower.

82K will let you live well, but this also depends if you have dependents.

I would be alone. I guess I should give it a try then:D

Calgary suburbs you could get by with $82k.. no chance in Vancouver unless you're 1hr+ away.

82k in either city is very good and you will have a great life there.

Would it benefit me to take a pay cut as a transactional clerk by about $20k to work as a clerk for a year then re-enter firm life? I’m transactional and enjoy that line of work.
