What's your current salary compared to your cost of living?
The cost of living in beautiful BC can be very affordable in our communities of Terrace, Prince George, Smithers, Kitimat, Prince Rupert, and Dawson Creek. Commutes to work of less than 5 minutes are common which generates a LOT of free time to enjoy the amazing outdoor opportunities like fishing in pristine trophy rivers, camping in the gorgeous Rocky and Coast Mountains, snowmobiling, playing hockey or just relaxing on an evening out with friends. Here is a link to WorkBC’s cost of living calculator where you can see what you might be left with each month if you were living in one of our communities: WorkBC Cost of Living. Compare that to what you are paying now and then see how the cost of living where you currently live, compares.
