Must-do things before moving to Canada

1. Get your paperwork in order

Before you can move to Canada, you will need to obtain the documents required for Canada Immigration. This includes a valid passport, visa, and work or study permit if required. The type of permit you need will depend on your reason for moving to Canada. You should begin the application process as soon as possible, as it can take several weeks or even months to obtain the necessary documents.

2. Research the cost of living

The cost of living in Canada varies depending on the city and province you are moving to. It is important to research the cost of living in your destination city to ensure that you can afford to live there. This includes the cost of housing, transportation, food, and other expenses.

3. Find a place to live

Finding a place to live is one of the most important things to do before moving to Canada. You can search for rental properties online, or work with a real estate agent to find a home that meets your needs and budget. It is important to consider factors such as location, proximity to public transportation, and the cost of rent or mortgage payments.

4. Open a bank account

Opening a bank account in Canada is essential for managing your finances. You can open a bank account online or in person at a local branch. Before you open an account, research the different banks and their fees to find the best option for your needs.

5. Apply for a social insurance number

A social insurance number (SIN) is a unique nine-digit number that is used to identify individuals in Canada. You will need a SIN to work or access government services. You can apply for a SIN in person at a Service Canada office, or by mail if you are outside of Canada.

8. Consider transportation options

Transportation options in Canada vary by city and province. In some cities, public transportation such as buses, trains, and subways are readily available. In other areas, owning a car may be necessary. Research transportation options in your destination city to determine the best mode of transportation for your needs.
