Quality of Life: Cost of Living

Consumer Price Index Housing Food Transportation Commuting Costs $60K Costs $75K Tax Rates

The secret of Manitoba’s low business costs is a cost of living that allows Manitobans to live better for less. Living costs here are some of the most affordable in Canada, with house prices, auto insurance, electricity, university or college tuition and more all available at some of the lowest costs in Canada. High quality public health care is available free to residents.

In fact, after paying the basic personal costs of taxes, housing, child care, auto insurance and utilities, a family of five earning $75,000 per year is left with over $17,000 per year more in Manitoba, than the same family in Ontario.

Those benefits are felt just as strongly at higher income levels in a province that boasts some of the least expensive executive homes, vacation homes and green fees at tournament-quality golf courses.
