    Calgary is generally more expensive than Edmonton

    I've lived in both.  Calgary is slightly more expensive, but Calgary is a lot nicer city.  The job market in the city can vary.  I'm a teacher and ended up moving further north to Grande Prairie (5 hours north of Edmonton).  While cost of living is also high in Grande Prairie (also difficult to find a place to rent), the job market is booming here since it's an oil field city.


    I would move to Calgary in a heart beat though.  Cost of living between Calgary & Edmonton is pretty similar, and Calgary is a lot cleaner with better public transit if you take that route!

      I do not know about those cities but I just wanted to tell you my friend has had the same struggle.  She is a dental hygienist in St. Louis, MO at 2 part-time places and has been desperately looking for FT with benefits.  Good luck to you on wherever you choose :)
