Just a regular day



  • @manxam I'm not offended at all. I actually 100% agree with you. I'm planning to move when I get to have a foundation like an experience and earn some cash of course.



  • My brother moved to Victoria, I stayed on the prairies. He makes more than double what I make, but he can't afford to buy a house out there. I own 120 acres.



  • Cost of living is extremely high in Ontario and BC. Alberta is still where it's at for high salary with moderate cost of living...

    BC is a beautiful place but, due to Asian investors, the cost of living is ridiculous. The government is trying to put a stop to that but we'll see where that goes.
    Ontario is high because it's "the center of things" economy wise.

    @darrel : Kore seems like a pretty large and decent company. Any reason why you'd be looking to move away from them?

    Yep, just a regular day.

    How is things for you ? i think i might also move in couple of months to Manitoba as well. What advice can you give me ? I will stay a year or so.

    How is transportation there ?

    First of all, you have to get an apartment that has nearby bus stop and has buses that pass by time to time. You don't want to stay outside for 30mins in a -40C temperature. Some bus stops has corridors, some has heaters on the bench but most of them doesn't have. I'm lucky that I can see the upcoming bus from my apartment so I wait inside the building and I only ride 1 bus going to work. I suggest to get a car immediately once you get here.

    Another thing is, invest on clothing! That's very important. It will benefit you in the long run.

    Thanks,
    I dont think we can get any good clothing for winter as the ones they sell there. I looked online and it seems used cars are cheap in Canada, can you really get one for only 1000 CAD ?

    Yeah pretty big. I'd say because of Winnipeg? Anyway, I'm still new here so I'm yet to actually decide if I'd settle here or not.

    Buy some windproof clothes before going here, then buy more jackets and coats here because they're pretty cheap since they are common types of clothes in this place. About the car, yes you can get a decent and cheap cars here. Just make sure to buy to the right person. 😊

    It's possible, but in Manitoba every vehicle has to get a safety inspection when it changes owners. Some people will sell a used vehicle with inspection papers, but for $1000 they probably will not.

    So I'd you buy a car for $1000, you then have to get it inspected before you can register it, after it is inspected you have get all the repairs the inspection requires. I think when we moved to Manitoba, we had to do $1500 in repairs on our vehicle.

    Yep pretty much accurate.



  • Pretty much every province has a requirement that cars need to be certified/"safetied" as well as emissions tested. Except, at this time, Alberta -- though they're trying to change that.

    It's a question of when it has to be safetied. For example, in Saskatchewan, if you are buying a vehicle in Saskatchewan from someone who currently has that vehicle registered, it does not need to be safetied for you to register it. A vehicle can go it's whole life in Saskatchewan, changing hands, without needing another safety. However, if the registration lapses, or if the vehicle is coming from out of province, then it needs to be safetied.



  • Sounds like cars in Canada is way too complex.

    Cars in Jordan is 200% taxed, so if the car costs 9000 you pay 18000 JOD. The cost of new hyundai car here is 15k JOD which is 20K $

    That is just insane. At least the system is simple, though.

    see that is why we will never open up, the concept of seeing other people and how they live means change, and change here means chairs needs to be moved and shuffled and every chair has cost, usually cost starts with 10,000 lives and upwards. 6-7 years ago there was country next to us called Syria, it was better that us in every single way, people wanted change, now it is iran/turkey/russia/US/israel playground and 100 years behind.



  • @flaxking : I wasn't aware of that. Interesting. I know that in Ontario and Quebec a car has to be safetied before a new owner can license/insure it. In Alberta we have none of that. Didn't realize that Sask. was so liberal with theirs.

    I need to come or my PR will expire, I thought I will get married in Jordan and start family and forget all about it, but for some reason I have deep desire to drive 10,000 KM away those days. hopefully that will change my mood and health.

    I am planning on April-May and stay one year, I dont know how nor what nor where , but at least in Canada you have edibles .

    I agree. One time, I was on the bus alone, looking at the window and it's snowing. Urgh! I don't even want to talk about it. HAHA
