Thanks. if I include heating and hotwater to 650, the difference isn't much.

TRy to see if you can rent out your car spot to anyone for $ 50 or so and so that it will be considered as an income for you and your rent automatically drops to $ 886 from $ 936 per month.

As a software engineer, you may not do this but since your hydro is free try to make the max. use of it.
Avoid the washer and wash in the tub. Turn your cooking range on and put cloths to dry in the kitchen itself in winter (instead of the dryer). If you canot wash in the tub, use the washer to wash but dry in the fashion that I have told you.

If you have free time, you can try out some online surveys which will suppliment your income , say $ 10- $25 per month. Survey Lion is a genuine online survey. I have got money from it. Sometime you will have to tell some lies to join it (for example, it will say that it is applicable only to the consumers of alchohol).

The monthly rent I pay towards parking is 70 cad, how do I advertise that I have a parking space? can I rent it out to someone else who lives outside the apartment?

I am not a software engineer, I am an electrical engineer.
I prefer to pay the 2+2 dollars

Thanks for the input

Some times, after you land and take up residence, you find that you are stuck with the lease for a full year. So, that throws a monkey wrench into your system. So, for IEEE, it seems he is stuck there at this stage. Every one has given him VERY GOOD plans and suggestions to improve his situation from here. He still has to wait to see when he can do that.

, thank you



Now here are a few good suggestions to work with. As soon as his wife lands here, his tax bracket drops down as he has ONE dependent to share the tax load. If the child also lands there, then he will get additional tax benefit out of the kid also. So, he will do better in his take home pay, just because of their presence here in Quebec.

My wife already has an open work permit. We are expecting our first child in August. I hope it will be easy to get the visa for my new born child.
with tax bracket falling, how many more dollars can I get every month ?
Are these tax benefits only for PR holders?



The child will also get CCTB if and when he applies for the same and gets it processed. That is an additional bonus.

Is it applicable for temp workers?



Don't forget, that this "BIG KID HERE" eats about $600 worth of food each month. After his wife and kid lands in Quebec, he surely can live a lot better, when he gets his home cooked meals, to a certain extent, and/or patronize the local buffets too.

Yes , at present my food expenses are high.



If his company has Health plans, then, they can just walk into such a plan if they will accommodate it. he has to check with them.

Yes, my family will be covered, even the waiting period private insurance is paid by company



ONLY thing to remember is that his kid can ONLY study at the French Schools, no matter where the Parents did their schooling. Also got to double up on their French to get by there in that environment.

This is the only problem I see, My overall goal is to be abroad for 10 yrs wherever it may be and then live a comfortable life



Good Luck.

FH.

After the wife lands there get a work permit for her too. There are a few Educational Institutions to check with for suitable jobs to get started there. They are screaming for Qualified People.

She has an open work permit. I have heard that it is difficult to get jobs
Thanks for below links.

Your apartment will be having a notice board. So advertize it there. When the rate is $70 and your advertize for anything less than $ 70, Gora's will run like crazy to you.

You should not rent out to anyone other than who is in your apartment (with a lease) for security reasons.

Anyone getting a good salary/ less physical work (relatively)/ company benefits is termed as a software engineer here.

Advertise in your bldg Notice board. Also put flyer's through the doors of all your bldg residents if its allowed.

Try to live in a nice place.

If its $ 100 - $ 150 more here & there in rent so be it , at the end of the day as an electrical engineer it doesn't really matter. If you are doing a survival job & have hand to mouth existence it matters, otherwise NO.

Even if its $ 150 more its only $ 5 more per day..try to save those $5 somewhere else by not eating out etc.

$ 5 per day divided among a family of 3 is even less.

Don't compromise your & family's safety & quality of life : with bad tenants , bed bugs , noise , bad smell , bad hygiene, bad location , bad & long commute , bad schools in your area, while trying to save a few bucks here & there.

Your life is & friends & socila life are outside the house ..NOT necessarily inside your apartment.

This link will give you an idea about the tax deductions and the TAX brackets you are in this year. (Also last year 2014, Taxation year that is.)

http://www.revenuquebec.ca/en/salle-de-presse/nouvelles-fiscales/2014/2014-12-04%281%29.aspx

Being here within Canada on a work permit, You have a TRV. That should permit you to apply for the CCTB. link Below.

CCTB. : http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/bnfts/cctb/fq_qlfyng-eng.html#q1

Please also consult an accountant and get help. Also contact CRA, Quebec Branch.
UCCB.. : http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/cntct/phn-eng.html
