Is it worth moving to North York for a 3 day in office job? I am used to living in the suburbs, right in Sauga. Got a nice place with friends and family around, not too high rent. Does anyone here travel from GTA outskirts to North York/Downtown regularly?

Depends how long the commute will take you. North York can be really fun, especially if you're near transit, and driving can be an absolute nightmare between the 427 and 404.

However, also depends on your hours. If you can commute before or after rush hour, might not be that bad.

My suggestion is to give it 3 months. See how you feel about the commute and the job, then decide. Don't move until you know you're staying there.

I had 60 day late payment of 35 bucks in Jan. It was new Amex Hilton card I opened for stupid points. It was reported and my credit score had been consistently dropping from last 6 months.

Infact I have overpaid each card to have negative balance so my credit utilization is almost zero. What else I can do to repair the damage.
