Regularly I talk or post about how much more affordable Hastings County is compared to big cities like Toronto. I have some more proof!
Below is an infographic featuring some statistics I recently collected. Notice that despite the high cost of homes in Toronto, the average total household income is not too drastically different from Hastings County. As well, a greater percentage of people in Hastings County say that they spend less than 30% of their total income on shelter costs as compared to people in Toronto. Daycare is cheaper in Hastings County and it takes less time to get to work meaning more time spent at home in Hastings County with family and not on the highways.
