Wanted: one-bedroom apartment, no roaches.

I live in Toronto. My apartment has cockroaches. I'm going to move out in a few months because, dude, waking up at 4am and finding cockroaches underneath the desk in your bedroom is NOT cool. How do I find a place that doesn't have cockroaches?

What signs should I look for? Is there a way I can find out a building's past history? Are there any obvious places I should avoid (like, maybe, above a restaurant like I am now, or houses in general, or whatever)? Is my only option for cockroach-free living an expensive condo downtown? Am I going to have to pay more than my current rent of $1200?
Also, how do I make sure I don't take the buggers with me? Assume that I don't want to throw anything out. So far the infestation has been relatively light, so I'm hoping none of them have laid eggs in my stuff, but I want to be sure. The move will likely be in November, if that's important info.
