  • Moving to another country can be challenging.

  • If you are immigrating to Canada, this video will help you make a checklist of the

  • things you should do to be prepared for your move.

  • To start off, English and French are Canada’s two official languages.

  • Being able to speak in one of these languages is absolutely essential

  • for day-to-day living.

  • We know that it takes time, energy and commitment to improve your language skills, but

  • communications skills may be the most important tool that will help you successfully

  • settle in Canada and find a good job.

  • If you have a limited ability in either English or French, you should consider improving

  • your language skills before you come to Canada.

  • Which language should you learn?

  • This is up to you, but it will depend on where in Canada you intend to settle.

  • In short, English is the most common language in the majority of provinces and

  • territories, while French is the main language spoken in Quebec.

  • But with Canada being a bilingual country, there are also well-established

  • French-speaking communities in Ontario, New Brunswick, Manitoba and most

  • other parts of Canada.

  • And Quebec has a large minority of English-speaking residents.

  • So, do some research on the place where youll live to see which language is most widely

  • spoken in the region.

  • Next, be sure that you have all the proper documents that you and your family will need

  • once youre in Canada.

  • Examples include birth certificates, passports, education diplomas and transcripts,

  • medical and dental records, marriage or divorce certificates, driver’s licenses, adoption

  • records for adopted children and other official documents.

  • A word of advice: it can be much more difficult to get these documents after you have

  • left your country of origin, so take the time to gather them before leaving.

  • If any of your family members are immigrating at a later date, make sure to bring copies

  • of their documents with you as well in case you need them for any reason prior to your

  • family membersarrival.

  • Another thing to do before leaving for Canada is to translate your documents into either

  • English or French.

  • Be sure to get a certified translation.

  • This means you need to choose a translation agency with a good reputation.

  • The translator should also give you an affidavit.

  • This is a document on which the translator has sworn that the translation is accurate.

  • The affidavit must be sworn in front of a person authorized to administer oaths in the

  • country where the translator lives.

  • Record the name and contact information of the translation agency in case you need it

  • once youre in Canada.

  • You must keep the original versions of your documents as well.

  • One of your first needs after arriving in Canada is, of course, finding a temporary

  • place to stay until you find long-term accommodation.

  • If it’s convenient, you can arrange to stay with family or friends

  • for your first days in Canada.

  • Or if that’s not possible, search for a hotel or hostel in a central location.

  • Try to book your hotel or hostel at least several weeks before flying to Canada.

  • By booking in advance, you will likely save money and have a better chance of finding

  • available rooms.

  • To help you choose, most hotels and hostels have websites with prices, photographs, a

  • location map and a description of the services they offer.

  • A word of caution: beware of very cheap hotels or hostels.

  • They may be located in unpleasant areas or be of very low standard.

  • One of the most important tasks is preparing to find work in Canada.

  • Providing for yourself and your family will depend mainly on being able to find a

  • suitable job.

  • For many people, the first job in Canada may not be the most satisfying.

  • But, keep in mind it can take time to build your qualifications and gain Canadian

  • experience before finding the job you really want.

  • There are a few things you can do before you arrive in Canada:

  • Gather all your educational diplomas and certificates and get letters of reference from

  • your past employers

  • As mentioned, be sure to get these documents translated into English or French.

  • Learn how you can get your educational and professional qualifications officially

  • recognized in Canada, and begin this process.

  • Being accepted to immigrate to Canada doesn’t mean that your education, work experience

  • and professional qualifications will automatically be recognized in Canada.

  • There are processes you have to follow to make sure the education, training and job

  • experience you obtained in another country are equivalent to the standards applied to

  • Canadian workers.

  • The Foreign Credentials Referral Office can provide you with valuable information on how

  • this process works.

  • As part of this, find out if your profession isregulatedorunregulatedin Canada:

  • Regulated occupationsin fields like health care, engineering, skilled trades, and

  • othershave set standards for how the profession is practised and require a certificate

  • or license.

  • Standards can be different across Canada.

  • Most jobs in Canada are non-regulated occupations,

  • which don’t require a license or certificate.

  • In these professions, requirements vary between employers, so always be ready to show you

  • have the education or experience to do the job.

  • Knowing which category your profession falls into will help you determine the

  • requirements for your occupation in the province or territory where youll live.

  • Lastly, take some time to learn about searching and applying for jobs in Canada.

  • There are many job search websites in Canada you can use, including the Working in

  • Canada website.

  • If you need to return to school or have school-aged children, do some research on the

  • education system before coming to Canada.

  • Throughout Canada, education is the responsibility of each province or territory, and

  • the various English and French language school boards are publicly funded.

  • There are different schools for children of different ages, but all boys and girls must

  • attend school between the ages of 5 or 6 and 16 or 18, depending on where you will live.

  • There may also be private or religious schools in the area where youll settle, and the

  • same rules apply, but these schools could be outside the public system.

  • For the most part, the educational systems are similar across the country, but there are

  • some differences between provinces and territories.

  • For this reason, the ministries or departments of education in each province or

  • territory are your main sources of information on anything related to education.

  • They all have websites, which you can visit to learn about the system before you arrive

  • in Canada.

  • At the very least, take note of the deadlines for applying and registering at schools,

  • colleges and universities, so that youre ready once you arrive.

  • This will make sure you don’t miss important dates!

  • Another step you can take to prepare for your arrival in Canada is

  • to buy private health insurance.

  • Canada has a universal healthcare system.

  • It is designed to provide citizens and residents of Canada with access to health care,

  • which is paid for by money collected through taxes.

  • But, you should be aware there is a waiting period before

  • youre eligible to benefit from it.

  • For that reason, you should buy private insurance to cover

  • your first three months in Canada.

  • This will take care of any emergency medical costs, should they arise, until you have

  • access to government health insurance.

  • And if youre unsure whether youll be eligible to apply for government health insurance

  • once you arrive in Canada, check with the government of the province or territory where

  • you plan to live.

  • There are a few more things you can do before you leave for Canada to prepare yourself

  • Learn about the province or territory and the city or town where you will live.

  • Many of these places have websites with information that will be practical for you to

  • know prior to your arrival.

  • At the same time, get ready for Canada’s weather!

  • The climate varies across the country, so do a bit of research to find out what you could

  • expect upon arrival.

  • It’s a good idea to buy some warm clothes to keep you comfortable during the first few

  • days if youre arriving in Canada during the fall, winter or spring.

  • You should also take some time to learn about Canada’s laws and your rights as well as

  • civic responsibilities.

  • It’s important to know that in Canada every individual is equal under the law ...

  • without discrimination based on your race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion,

  • sex, sexual orientation age, mental or physical disability.

  • Knowing what to expect before you arrive will help make your settlement and integration

  • into Canadian society that much easier.

  • Preparing to move to another country is no small task, and there is much more to know

  • and consider before immigrating to Canada.

  • The Citizenship and Immigration Canada website is a one-stop shop for information.

  • It has a wealth of resources that are tailored to your needs to help you

  • adjust to life in Canada.

  • The site also includes our Welcome to Canada Guide.
