You don't always need to break your bank to live in the 6ix. There are plenty of cheap apartments for rent in Toronto and the surrounding areas. So grab a friend to live with, and check out these two-bedroom spots for just $850 a person.
According to Powered By Orange, Toronto is the most expensive city to live in Canada, and its surrounding areas don’t offer much relief.
Padmapper also reports that the 6ix also has the top cost for one-bedroom apartments at $2,070 a month per unit.
So, if you’re looking to live for cheap, finding a friend to live with might be the best option.
Yet, it’s not all doom and gloom in and around the city.
You can still find decently priced places that aren’t total dumps, you just have to bust out the magnifying glass.
