Just arri­ved and trying to figure out how to get settled ?

You’ve come to the right place !

This web­site – Living Abroad in Cana­da – has all the infor­ma­tion you need about living, wor­king, going to school, or reti­ring in Canada.

Relo­ca­ting to a new coun­try – even one that’s just over an easy-to-cross bor­der – is a major decision.

My fami­ly has been through it. And based on our expe­riences and on plen­ty of research, I’ve com­pi­led this guide to relo­ca­ting to Cana­da.

You can read more about the most popu­lar places in Cana­da for expats to live and about the paper­work requi­red to live and work in Cana­da. You can learn how to look for a job, find a house, arrange schools for the kids, or even retire in Canada.

Per­haps even more impor­tant, I’ll intro­duce you to Cana­dian culture and all the things, large and small, that will help you set­tle into your new Cana­dian community.

If you still want to learn more, I’ve writ­ten the book on relo­ca­ting to Cana­da. It’s cal­led Living Abroad in Cana­da, and it’s part of the Moon imprint from Ava­lon Tra­vel Publi­shing.

You can buy the book from your favo­rite inde­pendent books­tore in the U.S. or in Cana­da, from, and from many other online book­sel­lers.

Consi­de­ring Cana­da ? Wel­come ! I’d like to intro­duce you to my new Cana­dian home.
