Dating in Canada Costs How Much?


It is no shocker that dating someone costs a little bit of money (or a lot of money depending on how fancy you are). Common activities and ideologies associated with dating and relationships, such as going to movies, dinners, and buying gifts, can start to add up after a while.

A recent EliteSingles study revealed just how much dating costs in Canada. 

According to the study, an average date night in Canada costs a whopping $125, however, this number is significantly lower than some other Canadian cities.

However, some cities in the country are pricier than others. A date will cost you $142 in Toronto, $130 in Calgary and $120 in Hamilton.

If you’re looking to save a little money, then Winnipeg may be your best option when it comes to dating. An average date night in Winnipeg only costs about $116. Other cities on the more affordable end of the spectrum include Halifax ($117), Edmonton ($118), and Quebec City, Ottawa and Montreal all came in at $119.
