    Pre-arrival services

    I see that Bakhodir already gave you the info to sign up for Next Stop Canada in Toronto, which was going to be my first suggestion. They provide both settlement and employment info and they are based in your future city. Try to sign up as soon as you can so that you have enough time to take...

    Pre-arrival services

    If anyone in this forum is sponsoring his/her parents or grandparents, they can tag me on this thread and I can suggest a pre-arrival service that would give them information specific for them, depending on their age and profile.

    Buying Jackets for Canada

    When I first moved here I just wore my regular boots but with wool socks, but back then all the walking I would do outdoors was from my apartment building to the bus stop and then from the bus stop to work, and back. If you want to buy good quality winter boots, the best brands are Columbia...
