Moving to a country like Canada is a change that will surely bring to you new opportunities.

This step will be the most important in the lives of the members of the whole family.


 It is important to take into account that the correct development of the future events could mostly depend on the information, knowledge and good judgment to take decisions, specially in the firsts weeks in Canada.


In these chapters you will find much information which will be of great help for the immigrant during his first days in Canada, and shall guide him in the actions that shall face. Although this information is based upon the experience of the author and other immigrants arrived at Toronto, Ontario, the process of arriving, establishing and starting basic activities is similar in other cities and provinces of Canada. Many details have to be taken care at the moment of preparing the luggage.


Inmigration to Canada


During the first days in Ontario, the most important matter is to get a home for your family. Take into account that to get what you need, employment included, shall be a question of having appropriate information, of organization, preparation, and most important of all, of time.


Know which are the activities that a family has to normally do in their first days in Canada, and how/where to go for help. On the other hand, with the Permanent Resident status in Canada, you and your family have the right to receive several benefits that the government provides in order to help and protect you. There are several federal, provincial and local programs to help families, especially children. Besides primary and secondary education totally free, your family has the right of receiving economic help and assistance. Know which are those benefits, how and where requesting them for your family in Toronto and Ontario Province.


We have the experience of seeing how the money taken by immigrants, product of several years of work and save, it was quickly expended in a few months in Toronto at an amazing and worrying speed. The main reason is the lack of knowledge of the prices and of a guidance as consumers of where or what are the most economic places. Besides, while you get a job and start earning Canadian money, prices of the products considered at our countries exchange rates, are in general, several times the prices we use to know, and this cause us a constant state of anxiety.


For this reason, we have made studies and analysis to know which are the cheapest and more expensive supermarkets in Toronto and Ontario. With this information, the consumer may know the prices variation within different supermarket chains in the city and will be able to save money.


Also know which are the basic expenses of an immigrant family (adults and children) in Toronto, assuming that they shall begin living in a two bedroom rented apartment. Knowing real expenses, you may forecast your resources during the first six months and you may know how much you must earn to support you and your family economically.  

Inmigration to Canada

As immigrants we know the value of the money and how hard it is to struggle to get it in our countries. For that reason we have included many RECOMMENDATIONS on looking after your money, saving and buying or expending money in articles and services you need (airplane tickets, food, furniture, insurance, rent etc) in the most economic possible way. You may save hundreds, even thousands of dollars in your process of traveling and establishing in Canada, over the coming years.




Did you know that if you and your family get a Resident Visa for Canada, there is a way of saving between 30 and 50 % in air tickets, over the commercial value of the same, and no matter the company or season of the year?


This valuable information may save you between u$s 600 to u$s 1200 in your travel to Canada, just in your airplane tickets, depending on the number of members of your family. (See Chapter 10)

NOTE: This is a clear example of how valuable can result the key information in the immigration process that you will find in our book .

And the most effective way of reaching this objective is to come prepared, knowing before hand the reality of the labor market and the limitations and bringing an action PLAN to follow up each step in the best possible way.

To give you an accurate idea of the reality to help you TAKING A DECISION, we made a critical and deep analysis of the different aspects of the life in Canada.  Although it is true that Canada offers a lot of positive alternatives to the Professionals and skilled workers, there are other aspects, (not so positive), that you MUST KNOW before coming or taking a final decision.

Inmigration to Canada

You will find many internet sites with descriptions of the natural beauty of Canada, its richness, its standard of life, its economy, its political stability, etc. Canadian government websites and of many other organizations show lots of good and positive things about the country.  BUT THEY ONLY SHOW THE POSITIVE THINGS.

 What about the unpleasant things that for sure are waiting for you in Canada?

You will hardly find objective information, showing also the bad and ugly things that immigrants have to face when they arrive to this country.  Based on our premise of helping the future immigrants, we consider our duty to show not only "the good", but also what we consider ugly and bad from an immigrant point of view in this country.

Last, you will find a list of “The 21 more frequent mistakes” made by immigrants to Canada, with the purpose of preventing the reader so as not make them by ignorance or lack of prevention.


Inmigration to Canada


As a potential immigrant, you must have the best possible information about the way that you will run.  And the best way of preparing yourself is learning from the experience and real knowledge of other immigrants who have succeeded before!!


If you choose the uncertain path of coming without a plan based in real information and experiences,  get ready for the worst !!

One of the greatest satisfactions that I have during my last 10 years living in Canada is the opportunity I had of helping many people with my advice and experience. My mission is helping other families with the application proceedings to get their Permanent Resident Visas without further problems, and then helping in their smooth "landing" in Canada.  I have also helped many people with my information, showing them the best available way to Canada, especially in the not very easy task of getting a job related with each ones interests and education.  It is not easy in any part of the world to get a technical or professional job, neither in Canada. But you must know that there is a process that you have to follow in order to be effective in your search, in the presentation of your resume, as well as to have successful interviews.

Of course, to get an acceptable or good job depends on the capacities and preparation of each person, and of other external factors that I will not mention right now. With a good guide and much dedication, many professionals and  workers from your country get a good job in less 6 months. You can get a not very qualified job in a week or less, but an immigrant can stay years in that position, if he doesn’t train himself or learn how to get out from that situation.

I guess what your are thinking right now…..if he wants to help people as he has been doing until now, why doesn’t he publish the complete version of this book FREE in INTERNET, helping thousands of persons no only to easily obtain their Permanent Resident Visa, but also to establish and guide them to save money and find job in Canada?

Well, I have two important reasons for not publishing this book for free:

1. Nobody wants to see thousands of persons fighting each week at the front of the Canadian embassy building in their country, asking for the visa to live in Canada. If everybody knows the immigration process and keys to successfully establish and live in Canada, thousands, even millions of engineers, professional and technicians from all over the world would try to apply for the visa to live here. The Canadian Immigration System is prepared for a total of 250.000 immigrants per year during the next 5 years, from all over the world.

2. The second reason for not publishing our book FREELY is that I am a traditional and old fashion man, as my father was. And I believe that if you have a valuable product or service (knowledge and information in this case), for which you have worked hard, it is reasonable to protect its value. I know by experience that, once you give something for FREE, it loose its value. I have been working hard several years to write this book with the purpose of rendering a service to people who know its value and appreciate its contents. And I am sure that thousands of immigrant’s families to Canada will be able to avoid unpleasant and expensive mistakes, and they will have a best future knowing these keys.


We have experienced and studied the way, now is your turn to use this knowledge and avoid bumping into the obstacles that we have already found.
