I think you are kind of comparing apples to oranges here. Canadians have much higher taxes on their income than we do here in the US. Someone making 17-22K is going to be paying very little to no income taxes here in the US. My husband's best friend moved to Toronto 7 years ago when he married a Canadian and he says about 50% of his income goes to taxes. Your wages in Canada are higher to cover your higher tax rates. You have to remember that whether or not a wage is good or bad is relative to the amount of taxes and the cost of living in a certain area. For example, $50K/yr in Utah buys significantly more than $50K/yr in Southern California.
