Preparing for Your Move to Canada


Moving to a new country can be an exciting new experience, especially if it is your first big re-location. You may be moving to embark on a new professional journey, to enroll in a university or simply for the change in scenery. Each year, thousands of people choose Canada as their new home, and for good reason! This beautiful country offers beautiful landscapes, bustling modern city centers and an incredibly diverse population. Whatever your reason, you are bound to enjoy living in the “Great White North”. When preparing for your move, consider this guide to help you make your journey a smooth one.


Apply for Residence
Before you start any other kind of planning, you need to ensure your immigration documents are in order and begin the process of applying for residence. Your situation may call for permanent residence or you may need to apply for a temporary visa like many students or seasonal workers do. The process can be overwhelming without guidance, so consider calling an immigration consultants vancouver to help guide you. Before calling, research online what kind of documents you will need to begin the process and have them available.

Research the Cost of Living
It is wise to learn a little about the place to which you will be moving. Canada is made up of several provinces, and each province may have slightly different laws, costs of living and income tax brackets. Take time to research just how much it will cost to live in your desired part of the country. The more you know about your new home, the more prepared you will be. This can prevent you from experiencing any serious financial roadblocks.


Search for a Job
Finding a job in a new country is a larger task than many would think. Do not put off the job search for when you arrive in your new country. Plan ahead and research the job market months ahead of your move. Take into account that there may be a new format for resumes or job applications to which you will have to adapt. Reach out to professional communities that exist in your future home city. This provides a great opportunity to network and learn from already-established professionals.

With a little bit of research and preparation, your move to Canada can be a smooth and exciting transition. Do not feel pressured to rush the process; take plenty of time to plan and get your affairs in order. Use this guide to get the process started.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing.

This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
