To determine which city is the cheapest and which is the least affordable, we calculated the total cost of the item as a percentage of your average monthly income. The data is in US dollars. In terms of living expenses for salaries, Mississauga was considered Canada’s most affordable city and the second most expensive metropolitan area in both Canada and the United States. New York City occupies the top spot.

    Client Testimonial

    MBBS Abroad is a big decision and your success depends upon the honesty of your consultant. It is a long process starting from choosing the right college to reaching there at college door step and finally studying there for next 5-6 years. You are in a new country without many old friends. We were sure to approach a consultant who is based out of our district only so that not only during admission but for next 6 years, we can have smooth interactions. So, we approached GKWorks as they have a branch in Saharanpur. As we anticipated, there are lot of things to be done during admission process that goes for 3-4 months. At every step, it was useful for us to have our consultant who was only 20 minutes’ drive from our home. We were able to discuss everything face to face any day and thus were able to have easy process.
