Yes we have everything that you have mentioned - some do some and others do the others - but overall, we have everything that you have mentioned. In that manner, Canada is like any other country in the world - there is nothing here which is out of this world!:)

I am still continuing nap atleast in the weekend:)
Weekdays I don't have the luxury to take nap but atleast have my lunch at my home ... because my home is close to office and I enjoy flexi lunch hour ...courtesy my office:)

Timings : I can speak for my field, in engineering and construction, work starts here pretty early, by 7.30 am most offices are up and running on full swing. Financial, banking sectors start a little late. Quititng time for work is also pretty early, most offices are done by 3.30-4pm max 5pm under normal circumstances.

Social life: toronto offers as much social life as you can take and there is always plenty of spare time to participate in other things after work, gym , arts and you even gets time write so much on CD..... but then its me who is saying this, many others would say there is no time at all in the life here.

I guess the short almost 4.5 day workweek has plenty to do with giving everyone the time to spend on other things outside work... fridays are pretty relaxed , depending on the office people start walking off from work after lunch on Friday. When i was in india i always craved for 2 day weekends, here the 2.5 days is very satisfying.

2.5 days???? You are lucky!! That is not the norm or is it?
How many hours of work per week are you scheduled to put in? And how is that divided into the 4.5 days? AFAIK, the norm is 40 hrs of actual work time per week. That divides into an 8 1/2 hr workday that includes 0:30 mins of lunch for us. With 4.5 days, it would tantamount to work time of 8hrs 48 minutes everyday. Adding a 1/2 hr for lunch will take it to a 9hr 18 minute work day. But then I assume your worktime requirements are probably much less than the 40 hrs that we have.

I guess its little different in the construction industry .....we start at 7.30 to 5 every day ...but then there is np hard and fast rule ......so it is about 36 -38 hrs in the 4 days ..so anything over 4 hrs on fridays is extra ...tho we dont get paid for the extra hrs ...so in slow seasons we generally take off after lunch....i thought it was the norm in canada ...maybe not.

That's almost 10 hours of work!! Wow! Just wondering why you guys do not work the full Friday? Is it just to get a longer 2 1/2 day weekend or for whatever reason there is just nothing work possible on Friday afternoons? I thought you said most are out by 3:30/4PM. How would that work?

Do you get unexpected expenses like we have in India?
If anyone's child is studying in college, how much is the college fees and does it burden you? Are you saving for children"s marriages?
