A person working full-time in Canada typically earns an average salary of 120,000 CAD per year. The average salary in Canada ranges from 30,200 CAD to 534,000 CAD.
Where is this mythical average salary of a half million dollars in Canada? No wonder the number of Indian students has exploded in Canada. I knew an Indian guy who studied at a university in Ontario and after looking for a job for a year, he decided to leave Canada. He simply couldn't find work in his field. This was twenty years ago!
It's much worse now. A one-bedroom apartment, outside Toronto, rents for $2,000 while a full-time minimum wage job nets you $2,600 per month. Of course, one can break the law and live like a sardine in a can as one of twenty people in a house and save on rent but that's just atrocious and depressing.
Anyway, it was amusing to see the average salaries of the eleven provinces of Canada.
