A reality that most Canadians can't seem to escape is that you have to pay the rent. Just like clockwork, the first of the month shows up, and that money is gone. If you don't have to pay too much, it's not actually that bad. There are Saskatoon apartments for rent that are under $1000, and they're much nicer than you might imagine.
With so many Canadians working from home now, it's possible that some companies might start to shift their business model permanently.
If that's the case, then some people would be able to do their jobs from anywhere in the country.
If you're not the kind of person that gets too attached to a city, then you could consider moving somewhere that has incredibly affordable rent and saving up some money for your future.
St. John's is a great option for cheap apartments (ones that are also better than you might think given the monthly cost), but what if you feel like heading out west?
Saskatoon is the only major city in Canada where the average rent is under $1000, meaning you're more likely to find something for less than a grand each month.
Not only that, but some of these places would go for a lot more in a city like Toronto or Vancouver.
