I'm not usually a big-time forum-poster, but as the title states, I'm heading to Toronto soon. I'm going on the USIT IEC program, so it looks like I get about a year. I'm going in June, not long after I finish up my final exams.
It was honestly one of those 'spin the globe, and jam your finger down on somewhere in the world and go' things. It's coming up fast, and it's starting to hit me now.
For starters, I've read varying reports in other threads about rent, but I'm heading alone, not in a group. How much would I be looking at paying for just a room. Single, if possible.
What are some good areas? I'd very much like to not end up in a 'bad' area, if you know what I mean. Couple of street or area names ought to be enough to give me an idea of where to avoid
Where would be a good place to move? I'm getting a degree in design/media, and I'd like to focus on that.
I would also like to ask how good the public transport is. Being a student, I don't have the cash to fly over and drop the cash for a car, no matter how much I'd like to. I've been reading, and it looks good. Again, if there's anything to avoid, please let me know.
Other than that, if you guys have any experiences you'd like to share, I'd very much like to hear them.
Seriously, any info at all on the place would help. I'm kind of going in blind here.
