If you're looking for a career change, Toronto is the place to do it, with so many positions perennially available at Canadian companies, in tech, outdoors, for the city's transit agency, in the government or in whatever field you're looking to go into.

If it's a bigger paycheque you're after, there are a ton of places hiring for a variety of different roles for high pay — as in, around $100,000 — including, most recently, the federal government.

Among the nearly 1,000 openings listed on the Canada website right now, more than 50 are specifically located in Toronto, and a lot of them are very well-compensated.
