Wrong! The recommendation of $2500 dollars will be lucky to get you through three months if you don’t have a job on arrival. Your first couple of weeks could be spent at a hostel and eating out most nights, which isn’t cheap! On top of that, Canada offers so many tempting options when it comes to socializing that can be difficult to turn down. Don’t be caught out in the position of being the guy at the bar who can’t buy the girls he’s chatting up a drink. Bring as much money as you possibly can and you won’t regret it.
