Canada Relocation salary value comparisons


Currently living / working in Savannah, GA, USA
 with professional salary of US $90,000. Prospective employer
 in Vancouver, BC, asks what salary requirements would encourage
 relocation to Vancouver. "life style" currently includes
3,000 sq ft nice, older single family home in established metro
neighborhood & 6 yr old automobiles. No children at home. Wonder
what salary would support similar life style in Vancouver area?

At one time with offices in 30 states and five provinces, I was pretty good at this but today, I have no idea. What I do know is that I tried to live in five other places and kept on coming back to Vancouver.  It is a fine place to live.

The house you describe is likely $900,000 to $1,100,000 in Vancouver if you are planning on being within a 20 minute commute of downtown. Locating 30 to 60 miles out of the city can reduce thatdown to $500,000

The good news is that you should be able to get your answer at the following website. Even if you had to buy the product, one move, "your own" can pay for it ten times over. However, you should be able to get one free demo download out of it.
