Relo­ca­ting to Cana­da is easy, droit? 

That’s what I thought – at least until my fami­ly and I began plan­ning our move here. We nai­ve­ly assu­med that relo­ca­ting from the Uni­ted States to Cana­da wouldn’t be much more dif­fi­cult than moving from one end of the U.S. to the other.

But it wasn’t just having to figure out how to arrange for work per­mits ou apply for health insu­rance ou trouver des écoles pour les enfants. We were sur­pri­sed at how lit­tle we knew about Cana­dian life and culture.

What it means to be a bilin­gual coun­try. How Cana­da embraces mul­ti­cul­tu­ra­lism. The active Cana­dian arts scene.

Why is Cana­dian Thanks­gi­ving in October?

Why is the Queen of England’s bir­th­day a holi­day in Canada?

What are Nanai­mo bars? And do they have any­thing to do with legal same-sex mar­riage ?

Even goo­fy things like why does ket­chup taste dif­ferent in Cana­da ?

I Wrote the Book on Relo­ca­ting to Canada

After I rea­li­zed how much my fami­ly had to learn, I figu­red that other new Cana­dians would have these same ques­tions – and many others, trop. J'ai donc écrit un livre, Living Abroad in Cana­da. Then I crea­ted this web­site, livingabroadincanada.com, which has been online since 2009.

Living Abroad in Cana­da is desi­gned for anyone thin­king of relo­ca­ting to Cana­da or for new­co­mers trying to learn how to get set­tled. It was writ­ten spe­ci­fi­cal­ly for expats and poten­tial expats from the Uni­ted States, but it’s full of details that will help new Cana­dians from the U.K., Aus­tra­lia, New Zea­land, and many other coun­tries as well.

And even if you’ve been in Cana­da a while, you may find some inter­es­ting tid­bits of infor­ma­tion that you didn’t know.

Qui suis-je, de toute façon?

I’m Caro­lyn B. Hel­ler, auteur du livre, Living Abroad in Cana­da, and crea­tor of the Living Abroad in Cana­da website.

I’m a tra­vel, alimentaire, and fea­ture wri­ter who relo­ca­ted from Bos­ton to Bri­tish Colum­bia in 2003.
