About the Book

Many people look to North America, usually the United States for better opportunities, but a growing number of foreigners are looking to Canada for their “big break”. Canada presents opportunities to try new things, establish businesses and lay a solid foundation for families. Many immigrants however, are not well informed and hence ill-prepared for life in Canada especially during the early stages of transition and settlement. Immigrants often arrive in Canada with expectations of grandeur which are usually far from the realities of settling down and becoming grounded. In this book the author, an immigrant, presents some simple guidelines and gives practical advice to help the wayfaring immigrant to better prepare for making “the big move” to Canada.
