Move to Canada

You can move to Canada

You don’t need a job, a sham marriage, or an attorney to move to Canada.

Interest in moving to Canada has skyrocketed in the US and UK, but there is little helpful information on how to make the move. With How to Move to Canada, there’s finally a comprehensive guide to moving to Canada from two Americans who’ve immigrated themselves.

Moving to Canada is more complicated than simply crossing the border, but it’s achievable without resorting to ‘greencard’ marriages to sympathetic Canadians. Many people are even able to immigrate without a job offer.

This comprehensive guide explains the different programs allowing people from around the world to move to Canada, either temporarily or permanently. It goes in-depth to explain the new Express Entry system, including exactly how long the process takes and how much it costs to become a Canadian permanent resident.

Most importantly, How to Move to Canada lets readers know exactly what newcomers to Canada can expect. Find out how to utilize your network to get a job offer before you arrive. Learn everything you need to know about settling in Canada, from bringing all of your worldly possessions through customs to setting up a bank account and finding a new doctor.

Written by two former New Yorkers, Cori Carl and Casey Daly, this guide explains the immigration process clearly and concisely while sharing their personal immigration experience.
