There is really no difference in the cost of living in Austin vs Houston, which everyone talks about being so "cheap" to live in. Though thanks to the oil industry Houston rent prices have dropped over the past year or so, but you're still talking about a ~10% difference in prices.

Most people (myself included) would agree that the quality of life is greater in Austin than most other places in Texas.

That's CAD, correct? That translates to ~31/Hr in USD at the current rate. Which isn't unheard of at ATCEMS after a few years. If your going to compare wages across international borders you need to address the difference in currency. If you're making the equivalent of 42/hr USD that's awesome, there's literally no EMS job in the U.S. that pays that, not even FDs except maybe on OT.

Downtown Austin is expensive but there's plenty of affordable areas within a reasonable commute.

Except conversion rate makes no sense cross border since you'll find we pay very similar prices for things in our respective currencies. Consumer price index is more reliable, but really it's neither here nor there.

We have very few steps in our pay scale, hit max in 18mths for my position. Captains make a few bucks an hour more.

Anyways I don't want to get the off topic warning from a CL ;) so I'll move on.

A modest 1-br apartment in Austin, or living out in like Bastrop or something and commuting in.
