Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

I left Nova Scotia (Digby) over 5 years ago for Alberta !
Best annual income was $35K (working for JD Irving) with lots of over time!Average was $31k over 5 years! (Gross before taxes)
Best annual income in Alberta $75K ! Average over 5 years $68K (Gross before taxes)
Nova Scotia HST 15% Alberta GST 5% this makes a big difference !!!
Housing costs (Digby) $5760/yr Electricity $2640 Heat $2800/yr Total= $11,200.00
Housing costs (Ashmont Alberta) $10,800/yr Electricity $2160/yr Heat $1,800/yr Total = $14,760.00
Total cost difference between Alberta & Nova Scotia is $3,560.00 a year more in Alberta.
Total income difference between Alberta & Nova Scotia (on average) $37K a year more in Alberta!!!
Total cost of living & income difference is $33,440/yr (+) !!!

I love Nova Scotia & miss it, but with more then double the income, I'm staying in Alberta !
