I did cost of living comparison between Calgary and Playa about 3 years ago and the difference was about 30% back then. I am not surprised that the gap has become 56% now. The sad reality is it will cost more to live in Calgary / Alberta starting in Jan’17 thanks to the “more taxes, the merrier” NDP government.
Here is the link where you can try to compare the cost of living between any two countries.
That’s when we started talking about our Sensato Living project.
