Victoria Is an Affordable Place to Live in CanadaBecomeACanadian Staff December 9, 2018 0 COMMENTS
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Two months ago, Cyndi Whaley packed her family up and left Toronto and relocated to Victoria. Although Toronto had more job opportunities in the field of environmental science, which she is involved in, the red-hot housing market made it almost impossible for housing to be affordable. Whaley and her husband, Vince Piette, tried two times to buy a house in Toronto for their family but got outbid each time. She said each offer was close to the max budget. BecomeACanadian has a team of immigration experts dedicated to assisting people to achieve their dream of living and working in Canada.
The couple is renting in Victoria until they can find the right home. She said the houses they are looking at are about $300,000 cheaper than for the same home in Toronto. Now it will be possible for them to afford the mortgage on her salary alone while Piette is finishing a master’s degree at the University of Victoria. The decision on where to live and work is becoming very common in Canada. A recent survey of 1,500 people in the United States and Canada has shown the most influential factor when considering job offers is location. The study reported that 68 percent of respondents said they were influenced by the area of the job being offered. Companies are being creative and getting better equipped for both part-time telecommuters and full remote employees, even in jobs where face-to-face collusion with colleagues was essential until recently. Lisa Sterling, the chief people and culture officer at Ceridian, said, “We’ve empowered them to get their work done in a way that works for them and in a way that suits their family life.” If you want to move to Canada, contact BecomeACanadian for help with the immigration process.
