30Unfortunately you will find that wherever there are more jobs available, the cost of living will jump astronomically. I live in Calgary in a nice 3 bedroom house and we pay $2500/month in rent. If I were in Saskatchewan, I could probably find a house just as nice for half that price.. but jobs that would not pay as well.
Teaching positions are very hard to come by nowadays, at least here in Alberta. I have several friends that are teachers and it's always an extremely stressful time waiting to get a new teaching contract as there have been severe budget cuts. Given how many teachers have already been laid off that had experience teaching here in Canada, I think it will be rather hard to get a teaching position, unless they are highly qualified.

33than subject my kid to a sub-standard education and the learning of a useless language.
that's a shame that you don't have a good program. i did late immersion (having studied language acquisition, i am totally anti-early immersion, except possibly as a gifted kids program). i was consistently in teh top 10 percentile at my high school in both english and french classes. i went to uni and did extremely well--twice.
20 years gone, my french is still very good, i use it frequently. it helped me in the job i do today (teach english language), and there's a lot of evidence that having a second language is good for the brain. not to mention that as the world approaches bilingualism, monoglots won't get no respect.
