FORUM: What is really like for Blacks in Toronto, Canada (house, employment)
Hoping actual blacks that live in Toronto, Canada or who have lived there can provide some pointers.
I’m thinking about moving to Toronto, Canada from Europe. Never being to Toronto, Canada (i’ll visit soon), but some black people I have spoken to here in Europe and in the USA (particularly) make the country and city sounds like the “best” place to be.
I’ve done some online research and they’re a lot of mixed opinions based on people’s experiences and news stories. However, what is alarming me are discussions about covert racism and the fact the majority of blacks (West Indies seems to pop-up alot) are not doing particularly well in Canada even though blacks are the smallest minority group over there.
Everywhere in the world is a challenge to get on and you can only do your best. But what is living in Toronto, Canada really like for newly arrived and established blacks? What are the core challenges (apart from the obvious ones like job hunting, etc)?
I don’t want to jump from one “fire” to another, if Toronto, Canada is no better than Europe for Blacks.
