Living Abroad in Canada

Your guide to Canadian travel, relo­ca­tion, life, and culture

Part of the Moon series from Avalon Travel Publishing.

A must-​​have book for any­one con­sid­er­ing relo­cat­ing to Canada for school, work or retirement.

When my fam­ily and I moved from Boston to Vancouver in 2003, we didn’t know how much we didn’t know.

We would have loved a book that told us how to get per­mis­sion to work in Canada, how to sign up for health insur­ance, and what school options we’d have for the kids.

But we also found that there were plenty of things we didn’t know about Canadian life and cul­ture.

We began wish­ing that there were a book to explain it all for us. A guide – specif­i­cally for Americans mov­ing to Canada – that would lead us through this excit­ing but often-​​baffling process.

A book like Living Abroad in Canada.

But don’t take my word for it.

Here’s what the Chicago Tribune had to say about Living Abroad in Canada:

It seems that quite a few Americans con­sider Canada the 51st state. Author Carolyn B. Heller aims to put that idea to rest. Although the United States and Canada have much in com­mon, Heller is quick to point out that Canada has its own dis­tinc­tive cul­ture with its own cus­tom, lan­guages, and idiosyncrasies.

…She dis­cusses hous­ing con­sid­er­a­tions, the Canadian health sys­tem, employ­ment, and finance while offer­ing sug­ges­tions on prime liv­ing loca­tions. She con­trasts the American melt­ing pot with Canadian mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism, where var­i­ous eth­nic groups live side by side in a mostly mul­ti­eth­nic harmony.

To cite just one exam­ple, Heller pro­files an annual din­ner and per­for­mance event in Vancouver — dubbed Gung Haggis Fat Choy — that cel­e­brates the city’s Chinese and Scottish her­itages and where peo­ple gather for a Chinese-​​style ban­quet to savor such del­i­ca­cies as hag­gis won tons.

Only in Canada.

And ShelterOffshore​.com says:

We’ve found a fan­tas­tic title from the Moon Living Abroad range that will be per­fect for any Britons or Americans think­ing about explor­ing their options of a brand new life in Canada. Living Abroad in Canada by Carolyn B. Heller guides you through every sin­gle ele­ment of plan­ning, prepar­ing and enjoy­ing a new life.
