My landlord is increasing my rent to 25%. I was expecting an increase due to the market now.. sure.. but not 25%. Was hoping for at least 10-15%. Anyway. I got the chance to chat with my 2 other neighbours today, and I found out that both of them are getting 10% increase. Just 10%. I already messaged the landlord before and said it’s non negotiable. I just don’t understand what’s going on. I’m from Calgary, Alberta. To be honest, I feel like they’re trying to get rid of me lol

Check the law where you live. Pretty sure that’s illegal. They can’t just evict you either. Usually there is a cap on how much rent can be increased yearly set by the government but landlords can be sneaky and treat this as mandatory when it really isn’t.


Yeah, no limit for Alberta

Maybe your landlord has a potential customer willing to pay 25% more. Try talking to them in person, negotiating over email/text is a good recipe to not get what you want.

No offense, buy maybe you are right. Maybe they don't like you and that's the way the landlord is dealing with you.


I already tried. They’re very hard on me. I can pay the rent, it’s just frustrating knowing that everyone else is getting 10% except me. 25%. So….

Find the place faster. Winters are already here....

I mean the % doesn’t matter. How much is your place going to be versus your neighbor’s place?

If the end rent is similar or your place is nicer then it’s fair.

Hi ,
I'm a Marketing student and was recently offered part time internship positiom on the marketing team of really cool FinTech Venture Capital company .During the final interview , I luckily asked for their pay range for interns and almost fell to the ground when he said $30/hr min. I would have said $18/$20 if I hadn't asked him instead .The average student earns between $15-$20 it sounds really good but that's only an opening offer. Should I ask for a higher amount like $35 -$40?


Could be a different bowl I should post this in but does anyone have recs on ways to monitor your monthly spending? I have mint and personal capital but I kind of want to still use excel. I might go the route of pulling all transactions from mint and exporting into excel but wasn’t sure if anyone had a better way or can point me to resources that’d help me with this

Hi All,

Is it a good idea to vent out (in a professional tone) to your manager/HR during your exit interview? Especially, if you had a bad experience with and found your company's work environment to be very toxic and you were on the receiving end of micromanagement and intimidations from your delivery managers for no reason. It is my first exit interview so I need some tips.

Shell of a man lately and just have zero motivation to work lately.

Men, how can women know if you’re truly interested without having to experience the post nut clarity from you (since it can happen after one date or months)? Not trying to waste my time for months with someone who is just going to ghost me after. I’ve experienced it before, but I always know before hooking up if they were boyfriend material, so it doesn’t bother me. Seems more confusing for men.
