Obviously. But until i get those.. No way to rent a place?
Where do i stay then, hotels?
What if finding a job will take a few weeks, sleep at the park?

You should be able to find a cheap hostel for a few days at least. Which city are you in?

Of course not, who would sleep in the park in this weather? you can move to a homeless shelter and get your provisions from a food bank until you get a job

Eab, are you telling me that you're coming unprepared?
Before arriving to Canada, make up a list of apartments for rent that you would like to see.
Stay at a hostel for a week or two until then. But don't come unprepared. Check for the popular banks on the internet. Check the temperature very importantly in the city you're going to.
Do your homework.

Arrived to canada.. Now what?

This is where the real work begins; start building a life for yourself even before landing...

Do a lot of research about temporary stay on Canadian sites on-line; rent accommodations and permanent aboard in-case you'll be buying a house soon and come along with a lot of money!

Research employment as well; survival jobs to start you earning right away and don't give up on building your resume in connection to your profession as you never can tell that you could bag a good job in a timely manner in your field. Evaluate your credentials both secondary and post-secondary ones.

While you are landed, go to Service Canada offices and human services as well for all advice and assistance which they would render for free.

Hope this helps...
All the best!

Look for a rental property realtor in your area, they will be able to assist. They do not charge you to rent from them.
