Well, I am 18 and I lived in Winnipeg all my life. The best thing you can do it go back to school actually, there are many 2- year programs in Colleges. If you`re thinking of buying a house then you should have enough money for down payment, and most all be able to cover up for the rest of the mortgage. And YESS you can, in my dental class there are lots of 30 year olds and my Art teacher from high school who`s 50 something is going back to school. YOUR NOT LATEWhich isn`t so important , and there many immigrants coming to Canada that`s why it`s hard for you to get a job.
