Prepare for your arrival with Arrive’s Moving to Canada checklist

For most newcomers, moving to Canada is the biggest, most momentous change of their lives. Not only will you be leaving behind your family and loved ones, but you’ll be starting afresh on many aspects of your life, such as your home, career, and finances. When moving to a new country, a little planning and organization can go a long way in making your transition easier. 

Whether you’re researching the basics of life in Canada, getting your paperwork in order, wrapping up essential tasks at home, or preparing for your initial months in Canada, there will be so much to do before leaving your home country. As a result, it’s possible to feel overwhelmed in the months preceding your move unless you’re certain about what you need to do and when to do it. Moreover, there’s always a risk that you’ll miss out on something important that could impact your settling-in process once you’re in Canada.

Arrive’s pre-arrival checklist is a downloadable document that will serve as your guide in the months and weeks preceding your move to Canada. This comprehensive checklist covers everything you, as a newcomer, should research and do before leaving your home country, including budgeting for your initial months in Canada, preparing for the Canadian job market, booking temporary accommodation, and more.

With Arrive’s pre-arrival checklist for moving to Canada, you’ll always know where you stand with your preparation for life in Canada. We recommend that you print this Moving to Canada checklist, pin it up in a visible spot, and start checking off tasks as you complete them, so you don’t have to worry about forgetting crucial tasks and can start your life in Canada with confidence.
