Torontonians are friendly if you need help, but can be a bit stand-offish, not very openly warm. I guess we like our personal space. Best bet is to go out to lunch with co-workers and take it from there. Also, joining a club of some sort might be good too.

As for accomodation, apartments here can be rather steep. If you're looking in the North York area, a nice, clean 1 bedroom apartment might run you from $750 to $1000/month. You might be able to get a studio or basement apartment for around $600-800/month.

Try looking at the classifieds at www.thestar.com (I think you may have to register for free first) or www.nowtoronto.com or www.eye.net.

There may also be some rental listings at www.mls.ca
