We’ve taken the time to compare what it is like living in Toronto vs living in New Brunswick.

Toronto’s population is almost 3 million and it’s the largest city in Canada by population. That explains why there is almost always traffic.
With Toronto being the largest city in Canada by population it can definitely be a bit noisy and crowded at times. More people equals more cars which means more pollution in the city. With that being said Toronto offers many public transit options to help make your commute a little better. Also the soaring condos make for a very pretty city with an absolutely stunning skyline.
There is definitely a greater variety when it comes to Toronto’s party and food scene. You will never be bored or hungry with restaurants, bars and clubs all over the city to satisfy all 3 million Torontonians!
Looking for a job? Toronto’s job market is ‘unstoppable’ based on latest StatCan survey plus Toronto has some of the top Colleges and Universities in the country. With that being said living in Toronto isn’t cheap at all with the average house being at least $800,000.

New Brunswick population is the only province in Canada that experienced a decline in the last 5 years. Good or bad? One thing is for sure you can bet that traffic wont be an issue. This is perfect if you want a strong work to family life balance as less traffic will cut more time off your commute to and from work.
New Brunswick is surrounded by 80% woodland inhabited by moose, bears and wildlife. If you love nature and peace and quiet than New Brunswick is definitely the way to go. Less population with more land means less pollution and fresher air!
The Realestate in New Brunswick is much more inexpensive than Toronto’s which means more families can afford homes. The job market in New Brunswick however, is not as good compared to Toronto’s.
