These Are The Best And Worst Canadian Cities To Find A Job

Where does your city rank?

It's no secret that finding a job in Canada has definitely become harder than it was in the best. Whether it's having to put yourself through further schooling or getting a ridiculous amount of internships under your belt for experience, it definitely takes a lot more to snag a 9-5 than it had for our parents. 

Though you may be surprised to know there is a pretty dramatic difference between how easy it is for some Canadians to land a job in comparison to others, just because of where they live! If you already were aware that where you live definitely impacts your job search, you are sure to be surprised which areas in Canada ranked the best, and which ranked the worst spots to find a job!
