Kuwait vs Canada

Posted by username1 on 8/25/2019 4:52:00 pm

the question is for people who moved from kuwait to canada if they are still accessing the site.

i am 31 years of age and have been in kuwait for 7 years earning good income. having a car, affording 2 bhk, take 2 international trips every year with my wife, enjoy good lifestyle and going out to dine and have leisure activities every weekend and still save money back in india.

i am considering moving to canada and as per the online research, i have been able to identify that i will be able to earn approx. 70-75k cad annual income.

is it worth moving moving to canada? is it worth sacrificing the current lifestyle in kuwait?

appreciate if someone who has migrated from kuwait can give a genuine answer.
