Toronto is a fantastic city with good subway transit and is a rail transit hub. Rents are about $1500 for a one bedroom and $2,500 for a 2 bedroom condo downtown. You can get cheaper as you move outside the core. There are a lot of parks and bike trails and in the summer the Toronto islands are a great venue. No more expensive than most cities, lots of nightlife, theatre, and a good music scene when Covid isn't an issue. Crime is generally not an issue unless you go looking for problems (as anywhere).
