https://www.complex.com/life/vancouver-officially-most-expensive-city-in-north-americaI haven't been to Canada but my brother is there so a lot of what is said here is true. For example the housing in Canada particularly Vancouver is insane. My brother agrees - he was in Los Angeles and the Vancouver market is even more expensive! I see people (Indian subcontinent) being counselled on Youtube to take education courses in Nova Scotia or Yukon without being even told about the kind of weather they might face just because of the easy entry requirements and low costs. A reality check on Canada isn't such a bad thing.
Vancouver Is Officially the Most Expensive City in North America
Back then Van was 2nd most expensive, coming after San Francisco.
