You won't get a good job by finishing an undergraduate degree in the Life Sciences. If you decide to stay in the Life Sciences after 4 years still, you can go to medical school (the job prospects here are obvious), graduate school (which, if you're good and lucky and passionate enough, will eventually get you a job in academia, or you could look for a government job requiring your expertise), or teacher's college.

You'll probably have to go to grad/professional school. You can go into pharm, med, optometry, dentistry, PT, OT, research, teaching, etc.

Well, I am having a difficult time making a decision..it's
either u of t engineering or mcgill biomed. Which one is better
in general? the major concern is that there're less job opportunities
if I go into life science.

With engineering, you have to prove yourself more in your career than in your schooling. With life science, if you can prove yourself in university, then you'll get into a professional school or graduate school and then have recruiters knocking at your door.

Ultimately it comes down to what you're best at and what you enjoy. That's what you have to figure out.
