Well, rent is gona be anywhere from $700 - $1400 (guess)... + telphone, cable, internet = probably another $100. Food prices are pretty much the same as Niagra Falls. I am not sure about Car insurance though.. I know its more expensive, lets say in downtown Toronto then Mississauga... but comparing Niagra to Mississauga = No idea.

Its hard to say what is a good wage, that can support you alone in a two bedroom apartment. It depends on your standars. I would proabaly say $14+ hour??? I doono.

PLEASE keep in mind that these are just mine personal estimates.

in mississauga a decent place will cost you $1000 and up, sure you can find some decent places for cheaper but it will be hard.

oh and depends what you consider decent, lol.

Hey RevShot:

It is expensive. I was looking for a 2-3 bedroom in the mississauga/oakville area, and for anything half decent you are looking to spend $1400 ++ on a place , and $400 or so in bills every month. When i was looking i got frustrated and said "F*ck it" and bought a house in Unionville.
I am still paying that amount a month and more, but i have way more space, and my own house.
Renting an apartment is stooooopid.

Do a lease to own Condo, or something along those lines.

Logic would tell you to look through classifieds and find actual apartments for sale, etc.
