    Both have very different style of living. You’ll pay around 52% in taxes in Netherlands, but you will have a lot of government sponsored benefits, relaxed work-life balance, your severance if they to fire you will be 3M+, and you can basically take 2Y paid sick leave for nervous breakdown if your doctor is ok with that.
    In Canada you’ll pay about 32% in taxes, it would definitely be less vibrant than Amsterdam. Employment law is a bit better than it is in the States, but not even close to Netherlands...

      Thanks for the details. Although I have heard about 33% taxes and with 30% ruling, I only have to pay 30%. Are you sure taxes are 52% for a immigrant on work visa in Netherlands?

      Also, what would you suggest for short term move, just for a year? Canada or Netherlands?

      Canada was boring for me, but if you like hiking and quiet, you might enjoy. Amsterdam is super fun, vibrant night life, great culture, you can travel across the Europe on the train every weekend and etc, but NY apartments are huge comparing to what you can find in Amsterdam.

      One guy I know took nervous breakdown sick leave for a year in Netherlands. He did not look stressed for me :)
