    That would be a big mistake unless work is the only thing you are looking for. Been there done that.

    It's been a few years and I dunno about the work thing but Church and wellesley was a hot spot for guy life but it started getting a bit seedy. Although Woodys is still there I'm sure.
    I think thee is a new villiage in the west end around college street.

    Toronto is a very beautiful, prosperous, vibrant city. Consider yourself a very fortunate guy for landing a good job in that great city. You will love it. The city is forever changing, I wish Buffalo had the changing, beautiful skyline and dynamic business community similar to Toronto.

    When I got transferred from Vanc to Calgary back in the 80's I was almost ready to quit rather than go, but we went and stayed for almost 20 years. I hated it the first year or so but that changed as the city grew. It was good and absolutely nothing like "what people think" . It's very progressive. In fact I think Alberta is way more progressive than here in Ontario.

    A friend of mine does urban planning for a private engineering firm, if you PM me I'll ask him if they have some positions available.

    Btw, definitely check for out some firms in the outlying areas of the city - specifically, MIssissauga or Markham - as they tend to congregate there for low land prices.

    Welcome to Toronto!

    Church/Wellesley is still the hub of the gay scene but not the only show in town. There are cool queer-friendly spots all around the city, notably in Leslieville (Queen Street East, from the Don River towards the Beaches) and the west end (West Queen West, Liberty Village)--and by "spots" I mean just that, not just cruisey clubs but cool cocktail lounges, cafes, and various businesses.

    Welcome to Toronto, mo23!

    Not in the engineering field so not sure how to job search for one. But Linkedin.com is a good tool to professionally connect with other people if you aren't on it already.
