Working and living in Canada – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Canada requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Canadian expat life. Living abroad in Canada raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Canada?ʺ, ʺAre there any day-care facilities for infants in my city?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Ottawa should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Canadian municipality in Montreal?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Canada is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Canada aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Canada. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from culture and sights, to housing & household or administration and finance, up to travel & accommodation. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺHow do I "survive" a Canadian winter?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
