My boyfriend and I are moving to Toronto from New Zealand in early August this year for a one year working holiday visa. We both work in media currently, and ideally would love to get experience in that field in Toronto. We've found Rogers and Bell Media - but are there other job search websites/media outlets we should look at?
Also, we're moving without having ever been to Toronto before with no idea on central (but not expensive) areas we should be looking at apartments for - are there any good rental websites we should keep an eye on?
We don't intend to buy a car while we are there, is the public transport system something commuters use often to get to/from work? Unfortunately we will possibly have to decide on a place to stay before we get job offers, so any areas that have better public transport options than others would be great to know. Trying to do research online myself, but without having been to Toronto before it's difficult.
And finally, does anyone know of any good short term rentals or hostels that we might look at staying in upon arrival while we get set up? I did wonder about applying to accommodation at the university dorms as they seem to rent out rooms over summer, just been reading mixed opinions on if you need to be a student or not.
Any info or links you could provide would be much appreciated! It's a little daunting to be moving to a brand new city with just a suitcase, but what an experience it will be!
