Relocating to Canada?

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 Amazon​.com, and from many other online book­sellers.

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