What are the monthly living expenses for a couple in canada 2011?

Calgary and Toronto are comparable in rent costs, Toronto may be a bit higher. In a decent area you'-re looking at $800-$1200 a month in rent.It depends a lot on each of your situations so I'-ll try and guess as best as I can:You'-re car insurance may be $80-$130 each (depending on your driving record and age).Car loan payment (if you guys have one or two) $150-$350 a month each.Home phone $30/month.Internet $30-$50/month.Satellite/Cable $40-$50/month.Cell phone $30-$60/month each.Gasoline $50-$200/month (depending how much you need to drive).Heat/Hydro/Water $150-$300 a month.Groceries $400/month ($100/week depending on what you guys eat).Then keep in mind there'-s also:Dining OutEntertainmentClothingMedicationsAuto RepairsHope this helps!

Depends on more than a few things, debt you may have/student loans. where in Canada you are, you can look at an average of $1500.00 in most areas, more in major cities. Add amenities to the cost, cable, buses, utilities, entertainment, car payments and your minmium expenses are closer to a couple thousand a month. Can make out with less in smaller urban areas but this will at least give you an idea.

Let's see. The two basic things you need are food and shelter in any country.If you are like this homeless veteran, you could rent a cargo container in the port of Montreal for $250/month.http://montreal.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/…For food, normally you buy groceries in a supermarket. You probably are looking at $50 per week for groceries if you only buy what is on sale and use coupons.If you walk everywhere you need to go, there are no expenses for travel. To work, medical appointments, etc.So you could IN THEORY get by with as little as $6000 per year. Of course, you have not bought any clothes, no furniture, no phone service, no going out to dinner, no entertainment than what you can do for free.But without giving us any clue as to what city you are considering, whether one or both of you will be working, if there are any children involved, or if you have a vehicle to pay for and maintain, it will be very hard to give you any accurate estimate of your living expenses. The costs of living in downtown Vancouver are going to be considerably higher than living in Eel River Crossing, New Brunswick.

That would totally depend upon what Province and City you are in. Apartment and Housing prices can vary dramatically between smaller cities/rural areas and larger cities like Toronto, Montreal or Vancouver. Even within these cities, downtown areas would be more expensive than other areas within the same city.You can check out prices in particular areas for rental or home purchases on www.mls.ca The Multiple Listing Service Real Estate Site.

This depends on where the couple lives, if they own or rent, how many children they have, if they both work etc. etc.Therefore, no one here can give you an accurate figure.

Which couple? Where do they live? How many children do they have?
