I demand that @Joshy has a more luxurious life.
I know people who live in tool sheds for that price.
I'd say typical rent in a kind of sketchy area but tolerable is more like $2400/mo, and the main reason it's so low is because there's a waste center in that area. Living in London as a foreign national was more economical.
Almost all of the houses are within the $1M range (usually slightly above like $1.1 or $1.2M) and the houses that are like $800-900k are usually total dives in less popular areas. You could try to make your rent payment towards a house instead to own it, but the big barrier is the about $200k downpainment [sic], and you'll also need to worry about utilities, maintenance, and a lot of tax/fees.
The typical person has 2-3 jobs that pays about $13-15/hr and they live very frugal lives often in crowded houses or with their families. One of my friends has three jobs with one of them paying about $20/hr, and they only get every other Saturday off. Some people will live several hours away from work living in more affordable places (hot/desert-like), which causes horrendous amount of traffic. My 45 minute drive on a motorcycle to split the lanes sure beats the 2 hours it would take for me to get to work, and a lot of other people will go as far as 4-5 hours to get to work (and then to get home); it would take only 15 minutes without traffic, but I'm trying my best to not get creamed by the lane-change warriors.
Wow. That makes me sad. : / Not saying that I'm oblivious to people having better or worse lives than others but it's really sad to think that people have to live like that, just to stay at the bottom. People should be able to live life.

But is there blood?

Did you just Medicine Hat us?
Yeh, the traffic and cost of living are pretty horrendous. I am so thankful to be on a motorcycle instead.
Calgary! But close enough, no matter where you are in Alberta, still feels and looks like rural fucking Alberta.
Oh god, are you seriously within 4km of me....
