For what it's worth, I made $1950/month after taxes in my first job out of college in Toronto, in 1995.

What is your level of experience, and what is the job?

Cheers!

Luke

Luke in fact my question is about Cost of Living and not salary size. I am a Java Architect with 9 years of experience and the gross sal. stands at 69K p.a. I am not sure if this is a good sal. but the take home after my morgage/loans is going to be $2600 per month. The query which I have is if this much amount of 2600(CAD) per month enough for a family of 4 (including kids) as mentioned above ? You can also add if this is a fair salary for a resource with specified experience level and if not ideally what should be the right salary per annum. Thanks in advance.

Take home pay after mortgage? We usually calculate take home pay before paying the mortgage etc.

I think the OP is talking about the amount left over after paying the mortgages etc.

Ok No Confusions. I am talking about the amount left with me after I pay my liabilities (i.e. loan's, equated monthly instalments). Now the amount left is $2600 CAD per month. Can anyone update about how well can I have living with this much amount in hand for spending towards grocery/rent/entertainment/etc. with the family of 2 adults and 2 children (less than 6 years age)

I recognize that - I was merely pointing out that your salary seems quite low.

I am a Java Architect with 9 years of experience and the gross sal. stands at 69K p.a.



Looking here http://www.payscale.com/resources.aspx?nc=lp_calculator_canada01, a software architect in Toronto's range is between $83,700 a year and $107,000 annually. Your salary seems off this range.

I am not sure if this is a good sal. but the take home after my morgage/loans is going to be $2600 per month.



It depends. Where do you live, and how do you plan on getting around? In my experience, one of the biggest differences in a budget in Toronto was transportation.

Cheers!

Luke
