b) Wanting to move for all the wrong reasons, its about the change of lifestyle and new beginnings, a new adventure. If you`re coming here purely for financial gain then you are gonna be going home on the next plane.

It`s obviously not for you mate, moving to Canada will have its financial benefits in the long term but as already stated, the first 18-24 months will be about sacrificing some of your lifestyle and financially tough as you are starting all over again.

Can I suggest you try winning the lottery instead

Like I've said before you can earn 2400 a week but that depends if it suits you
But your earnings can go along way if you are not stupid with the money northboy you need to look at your figures if your not coming out and have not interest in coming out then what's the point in trying to work it out
Lots of rentals for starters include the bills in the rent

as i say dusty these figures have to be taken into account ,and if your taking your family out with you , well them figures don't seam to add up in my book , and moving over there to be worst off doing 500 miles plus ,working nights.winter driving sadly its not going to be on my to do list , am sure after a few people do the sums two will think twice to ,,

$5000 a month that's worst , not even going to divide that up as it will not go down well figure wise ,, think this loblaw job is a young single mans dream ,, think a family man of 4 like my self well its a big no/no ,, and can turn into a night mare for my self , good luck russjp hope all turns out well for you and every one else

9000 a month you can earn and there are drivers who have brought families with them and its worked and like I keep saying you have to watch what you spend money on at first but family life does work

Working for loblaw will earn you money you won't earn in England but its not for everyone
As for winter driving its not the end of the world I have been told is the worst winter since 56 the locals tell me and that being the case it isn't that bad

the point in working it out was to see if its worth coming out ,, and flying half way around the world without doing the figures would be silly in my eyes dusty ,3 plane tickets for the family has to be though long and hard about two, and 3 girls age 12/15/17 , think that wage is know were near enough,, for the risk

Nice to hear the voice of reason speaking some sense - you live to your means if you`re sensible - if people wanna play`keep up with the joneses` then maybe they should stay in the UK

I posted my Canadian earnings for a full year on another thread, obviously I should have been with you lads in Regina at CAD $9,000 a month.

dont like comparing but
rent with Canada either but if you guys are paying around $1500 a month rent that,s $18000 so $72000 minus tax at 28% leaves you $51840 minus $18000 for renting
leaves you. $33840 divided by 12 $2820.then by 4 that,s $705 a week work out to the uk £ thats £463 .81 p if the canada renting was cheaper you guys would be raking it in ,,its this renting lark that,s the killer guys ,

.if ya live outside the City say uptae an hr drive its a fair bit cheaper to rent & tae buy.check mls.ca.
Unfortunately Sk is booming so no quite as many bargains as before.
rural Mb is a lot ,lot cheaper
but you could rent to buy as well (more than a few dae this).
Im hoping my bud will come on and explain how to get a mortgage on a TWP.
as all i can mind is that you need to have worked for 6months and use a brooker to find best deal.
