Rent Cost In Toronto | Cost of Living in Canada

Hiii!! My name is Igor… Welcome back to my Youtube channel… Today I want to talk to you guys about rental prices in Canada and cost of living in Toronto.. Before we go anywhere… I would like to start by… letting you know.. the renting options in Canada.. First rental option is a house Second one I would say is a condo Third one Its.. a part of first and second So third one would be a basement Fourth would be.. A room.. Now.. Let’s look at every single one of them.. What is a house in Canada? Now you can see.. those small house there.. that’s a house.. House is something like that behind me.. one entrance…one separate building.. see there a space in between.. There is a space behind… There is also a backyard.. It’s a separated building..of your own That’s a house in Canada.. And mostly Canadians prefer living in their own houses.. Now.. a cheaper option… for rent..would be a duplex.. It’s a something.. something like that.. you see thats.. that’s a duplex there’s one entrance one side.. there’s one entrance on the other side each family has their own entrance.. to the building.. and its cheaper… the only thing in between of those people what own that house.. .. is the wall.. so its basically… like a condo… like an apartment building.. so that’s a duplex.. now.. This is a house… again.. for example this house as you can see.. it has a basement as well.. that’s another renting option… and its way cheaper.. you see there’s a small entrance down… when you go down… that’s an entrance to the basement.. Upstairs is where… the other people live… so you a basement If you rent upstairs part.. its more expensive.. basement is cheaper.. what is the range of rent in house in Toronto?? its anywhere from $1600 to $3000 and higher… that’s how much is rent… for a basement.. like that… you see it has windows there also… bottom windows are basement windows… so basically what it means is… if you rent that part its way cheaper… its way cheaper to rent a basement its going to be anywhere from $600 in Toronto to $1200 for a basement.. and basement in Canada is basically a unit.. like you see those windows?? That’s also a basement there..its a unit… that that people stay that’s like an apartment what’s the down side of a basement? Well… there are people who are upstairs.. that’s the downside of being in a basement.. because basements are usually not insulated well… meaning that the sound of people walking upstairs can be high.. and also the furnace… the heat in the house… in the winter.. when they turn it goes up all the cold air goes down.. so if a person upstairs is going to be boiling from the heat person downstairs.. is going to be freezing to death.. it is cold I’ve rented I’ve been there and I know.. it is COLD..! and when you try to heat it up, the person upstairs.. for them its like a sauna.. so these are the options for renting… and for example.. ah..that’s also a house… that’s not a… I’m going to show you a condo right now just got this Amazon parcel… from Canada Post person.. because he delivers in this neighborhood and he knows me and I also.. live in a condo..right now.. that’s the place I purchased.. with my wife.. you see that’s another condo unit… an older building there.. let’s walk a little bit…further I will show you where I live I live on the top floor… of THIS building… behind me.. right up there on the other side of this building for sure.. not on this one.. and.. there’s also.. a newer condo building.. right…somewhere there… that’s a newer condo… that’s what they do… so what they do in Canada is.. instead of building another building like this one.. they take this old building and they renovate it to look make it look like that one behind.. more fancier… and then of course the price goes up of every unit and.. you can charge a higher rent for that one so basically… I can assume by looking at these buildings.. there’s one more condo… I think… it would be cheaper to rent in that place.. or in THAT place rather than renting in that fancier place over there.. I don’t want to comment on my building… no..hehe because I purchased that place that’s finally my own place.. and its awesome!! what’s the rent for apartment in Canada?? It all depends on your preferences.. its anywhere from.. $950 for one bedroom to.. about… $2000 for I don’t know.. 4 bedroom or something Let me explain to you now.. let me draw it on my.. on my car… let me show you.. what is a bedroom? alright…so this is a unit where you live.. that’s a house.. what means one bedroom? okay let’s start with studio… that’s an apartment…right? A studio.. be like this studio would be there’s one room there will be a kitchen here… there will be a separate washroom somewhere here… and that’s it… your bedroom is here… you..your bed is here nothing is separated..its one piece.. One bedroom apartment is… you would have a bedroom here.. and there you would have your bed.. that’s the living room… is kitchen… for example there would be an entrance here… right? what is a 2 bedroom apartment?? there would be… basically let’s say.. 2 bedrooms… with entrances… living… and let’s say… entrance somewhere here … now that’s 2 bedroom… same thing…with 3 bedroom 3 bedroom would be basically… be one more bedroom here… with an entrance… 3 beds.. that’s how you count everything in Canada… Bedroom bedroom bedroom living room one bedroom means one bedroom, living room 2 bedroom means 2 bedrooms, living room 3 bedrooms means 3 bedrooms, living room In Ukraine..we just count the number of rooms… but in Canada… they count the number of bedrooms… that’s the main difference… now… what is the cheapest option to rent?? The cheapest option to rent in Canada is.. a room what I did with my friends…is.. this… we rented… an apartment.. it was this.. let’s get back to my car… that was our apartment 3 guys.. there was one bedroom here… one here… one here.. corridor… there was an extra washroom here… and there also was a washroom here… living room with the kitchen.. entrance what we did is this.. 3 of us… we decided to rent one apartment.. and the apartment price (rent) was… $1240 or something…like that.. so we divided in 3 parts… and each of us was paying equally.. it was very cheap to rent that apartment… because we paid $450…each of us for our own room.. I paid… about $550 or something…like that.. because my room was the biggest… and I had my own private bathroom (ensuite) there too… we shared a kitchen… we shared the living room… but we had our own bedrooms.. that’s one of the cheapest options to rent in Canada.. is to rent a room… or…if you are coming here with a family… the best option for you…I would say Look at that basement… that basement is actually very high! best option is the basement… like those windows…you can see.. its a very good option because… you get it very cheap.. so once again.. let’s get back…to rooms.. rooms… rooms can..the price of room can be… anywhere from $200.. if you have 2 people in 1 room… if you are ok to share with someone… $200 and $200 you just split the $400 price into 2 and.. you pay $200 each.. I have seen 3 people in 1 beedroom… people who were… really tight on money… I would never do that myself.. so.. if you want your own room…its going to be.. anywhere from $400 to $700 can find places with $800 but those are very very very good rooms! If its a higher price.. make sure the internet is included… make sure electricity is included.. and make sure all the utilities are included if you are paying more.. if its cheaper.. sometimes you might have to pay.. part of the utilities.. just as you agree with other people… so.. the cheapest option is… a room.. the second cheapest option is the basement… basements are excellent type of staying.. because its a unit.. that is cheaper.. and most of the time… search for your own entrance so you don’t have to share the entrance.. so you have your own key… you have your own entrance to the basement.. that’s a very good…very good option too… if you are ok with spending more money… good option would be.. a duplex like that building over there… its split into half… you have your own entrance… the neighbor has their own entrance… that is… a duplex and.. it is way cheaper… the reason is.. ofcourse again.. because you have the between… and.. another cheap option.. would be I think.. let’s rank everything… the cheapest option would be a room… anywhere… second cheapest would be a basement.. third cheapest would be an apartment or a condo.. fourth cheapest… now its getting more expensive now… would be… I would say…you know…its getting more expensive now… part of the building… in a condo.. Fifth place.. is renting the entire house.. now you also have to consider that the.. prices can go up depending on the community.. where you are planning to stay.. depending on the neighborhood… accessibility to the bus.. and of course a view…if you want to see.. something…nice.. like downtown from your window.. now that’s going to cost you a little bit extra.. because… from here you can see the downtown of Calgary… really well… meaning that these units are going to be little bit more expensive… just because of the (view)..coz you can see the Tower.. let’s zoom in a little bit… that’s basically it…its going to be more expensive..if it is.. located in a good neighborhood.. its closer to downtown… has a nice view.. and includes all the utilities… I hope this video was helpful guys..

  1. nice video all of them not only this but all others u did a great job to make us to know and understand so when we come to Canada we be well prepared thank you👍👍👍👍👍👍

  2. We are moving to Toronto, My wife and I plus 2 kids. I am having a hard time finding a place to rent. I am looking for an apartment with all the utilities included. My budget is 1200. Can you please maybe give me some tips where I could find such apartment? Thanks.

  3. You think it is a decent life to move in Canada and live in a Basement at $1200? Wow very low espectation of quality of life you have! I think you never visited any countries in your life.

  4. Hello Igor.. Thanks for your videos and the information that you share in it.. you are helping a lot to many people.Can you please let me know what months are the best to come to Torronto /Ontario with respect to Jobs point of view?

  5. Hi, do you mind me asking what camera you are using? The stability is evident and the picture is really clear. ☺

  6. I am debating on moving to either Toronto or Ottawa but there is one problem. I am a poor person that can barely afford a bachelor where I live now. 🙁

  7. Thanks Igor!! This was an incredible video. There is enough information and are really helpful. Please continue creating videos with great contents about Canada. Kindly create maybe a video about great recreational activities any immigrant would love to do in Canada. 😊😊

  8. Toronto has an international airport. It has many flights. So, why is the sky clear and blue without a trace of so-called contrails from planes above in your videos? I am from Europe and our skies in Britain and Europe are full of chemtrails not contrails! The reason why your skies are clear around Toronto is because the planes are not blasting the area with chemtrails! By the way Igor, welcome to Canada! I can see why you left Ukraine after the Americans created the coup in Kiev and installed their Washington Puppet. Poroshenko started the wars against Donbass murdering Russian ethnic Ukrainian civilians. I suppose you must be like the majority of the brain dead Ukrainians jumping up and down like zombies chanting anti Russian stuff whilst bombing and committing war crimes against the people of Donbass. While Germans have for years felt ashamed about the nazis, you Ukrainian people should be ashamed for your war crimes against the people of Donbass.
    I like how you mentioned in your video that you are not Russian but Ukrainian as if that is something to be proud of? What is there to be proud when Ukraine, Europe and Washington were responsible for war crimes! It was your Kiev government that started the wars in Ukraine! I would have been ashamed to have been born in Ukraine, the land of russo phobic zombies jumping up and down for Washington.
    I am from western Europe, and I can tell you that many people, ordinary citizens like myself are disgusted with our corrupt corporate owned leaders in Europe who suck up to Washington. And Washington (with Canada kissing their ass) is responsible for wars and war crimes all around the world, especially in the Middle East. Let me tell you something about Ukraine, it is now economically a cesspool. You are far worse off now because of the wars you started in Donbass and having decided to kiss Washington and NATO's ass. You Ukrainians have so much hatred towards Russia that you could not see that Washington and Europe could not give a damn about Ukraine! They only wanted to tear Ukraine away from Russia so that NATO can put their missiles along the border threatening Russia, while you idiots jump and down shouting patriotic, Ukrainian nazi Svobodan slogans like zombies.
    So, why am I pro Russia and pro Putin? Because Russia is a large country that respects international law and national sovereignty unlike the USA that sees itself as an exceptional nation creating wars, bombing, invading countries around the world.
    European coutries are vassals to Washignton! And Ukraine wants to be a part of Europe that is having great economic problems. While stupid Ukraines are so excessively concerned about preserving their patriotism and national sovereignty, and defending themselves from an imaginary enemy being Russia, they do not realise that by joining the EU, they will have to give up their national sovereignty! That is the whole point about joining the EU – once you are in, you have no national sovereignty or rights, the country is dead. That is why the British people want to leave the EU. The reason why you Ukrainians are so fucked up mentally, the reason why yopu are so full of anti Russia hatred is because you are brain washed by the NGOs in Ukraine and by the 5 billion dolars that the CIA had invested in Ukraine.
    Guess what, while America and Europe are getting worse economically, China and Russia instead are improving their economy! By the way, since you are a proud Ukrainian, would you mind telling your ignorant Canadian friends that Russia had never invaded Ukraine, nor stolen Crimea. Instead can you explain to them that the people of Crimea had a referendum and voted to join Russia because they did not want to be threatened and attacked by the nazis in Kiev. Can you also tell your Canadian friends that all major westerm medias propagate propaganda lies and therefore are not to be trusted especially when it is about Russia. If Russia had invaded Ukraine, we would all have known about it because it would only take about two days for the Russians to conquer Ukraine. Ukraine then would be no more. But as you see, Ukraine still exists, so it means that the media lied about a Russian invasion.

  11. Thank you, I want to visit Canada and need somewhere to rent, how can I get a room or apartment at local prices, can you give some numbers. I'm coming in Dec for six weeks but trying to avoid the heavy hotel costs

  12. Does "room" mean share the living room and kitchen with other people in the same apartment , so the only private space is bedroom?

  15. My first place in Calgary was a basement and it is true winter time it was cold, I had to call the owner few times at night to turn on the heat..after few days I realized he wants to save money by freezing my ass I just turn on the stove and leave it open for half hour then turn it off..hopefully will teach him a lesson when electrical bill comes.

  16. Great video. Are these the options we have when we first set foot in Canada? What about motels or something temporary until we figure out the best option for ourselves?

  17. очень хорошо смотрит твои видео ролики…. спасибо много информация…

  18. Hi Igor, in the areas of GTA, the cost for a basement is approx 800. Is this only for one bedroom in the basement where we would share the other bedrooms with other tenants? Any idea on this please?

  19. they should have all the town house with garage attach to the second home so the noise doesn't penetrate…. its a no brainer to me but i dont know why no one do it. i was in my friend town home the other day you can hear everything in the other house. like wtf. is the designer of those town homes
    brain damaged or something??

  20. Where do we get a reliable site finding for accomodation in Toronto esp im still here in my home country? Thanks

  21. Мы являемся туристической компанией, и часто клиенты заказывают у нас билеты и запрашивают место проката в городе назначения. Есть несколько отличных сайтов, которые полезны для поиска краткосрочной или долгосрочной аренды, а также аренды с низким и высоким бюджетом. Мы часто советуем клиентам посетить для аренды мест в любой точке Канады.

Can u also find him or her for a better job, I am only asking you because you could help someone newer to this place……Awaiting revert Igor. Thanks.

  24. Thanks for the video! Could you please tell me what’s the roughly monthly cost of living in Toronto – just the rent and utilities? Since central heating would require much money to keep the house warm, in general, to what extent it goes up to?

  25. GLandlord greed is being used to suck the gains of all wage groeth out and destroy the worlds currencies..Pass this message to all land lords in every state…and watch my videos to care for the community…message to land lords: Nosir…its not affordable…the rates were actively trippled using the internet to set legitimate perception in the last twenty years…the currency cannot support it…you and your greedy ignorant kind have made all wage growth worthless except for you and the buzzards that feed on us all….you have been a tool for old world leaders to make an example of us all saying your liberty is worthless…you are not qualified to responsibly manage the job of ensuring a nation has housing at a rate that will truly bring prosperity simply because you qualified for a realestate loan with a bank….

    The rent to this day should be 350 for a nice and clean 1 bed apt with washer and dryer..625 for 3 beds…you laugh at me when i say that because you and your fake phoenixes…are ignorant beyond ignorant's wildest idiot wet dream….you as a nation will correct that imediately without a law…or we will all suffer the consequences… were the douchebags of this historic era..
