I'm thinking about moving to Canada and I have some questions. Before asking for anything I want you to know my goals: Moving to Canada permanently (going alone) Having a job but more like a survival one examples: Cashier, Coffe Shop seller etc. also having the option to change jobs freely. Obtaining Canadian citizenship? About My self, I'm 22 years old I graduated High school in my country. I don't have any work experience or profession. My questions are: What is the first step going to Canada (besides visa) How much money would I need for rent and food (until I find a job) Is it hard finding a "survival" job? Do I need to translate my documents in English like my High school diploma, birth certificate etc ? How long would it take to get an open work permit, Permanent resident, and citizenship? I know I don't sound very promising but I just want to know if I have any chance coming in Canada. Feel free to add additional information that you think I need to know because I may not be aware if I didn't ask.
