Before Arrival

Meticulous planning and pre-arrival preparation are very important factors in a successful and stress-free settlement in Canada. Gather as much information and do preparatory practical research in advance of moving to Canada. Analyze various banking options, mobile telephone plans, accommodation options, paperwork requirements, etc. beforehand. This would save you time and make you more prepared for making various practical decisions on arrival.

Start your life in Canada by consulting as many resources as possible before you arrive. See a list of resources we recommend below:
