Immigrating to Canada: The Blog Series

Canada has implemented a robust immigration plan that targets welcoming approximately 310,000 new permanent residents in 2018, 330,000 in 2019 and 340,000 in 2020. Globally, people interested in moving to Canada are trying their best to research and make the move. 

I conceptualized this blog series after I realized that the immigration questions that most people asked and wanted to learn about (on various forums) could be classified into five categories. I wrote one blog for each question and attempted to provide all the necessary resources and information pertaining to the topic. My hope is that this series will be a single-point of reference for anyone wanting to learn about the Canadian immigration landscape. 

Here’s a brief overview of all the blogs in this series:

1. My experience in just 10 steps!

This blog talks about the steps involved in immigrating to Canada. I’ve described my personal experience and provided helpful links/resources for those who may be considering moving to Canada.

2. Job market — hot or not?! 

Finding employment in Canada has always been one of the most popular topics across immigration forums. In this blog, I’ve focused on providing insights into the Canadian job market and also suggested tips on how you can research more on your field/industry/occupation. 

3. Seasons in the (sometimes minimal) sun!

Weather is one of the top factors when people consider immigrating to Canada. In this informational blog I share my thoughts on first experiences of Canadian weather while also discussing a bit about expectations versus reality. 

4. Evaluating the cost of living

Touching on some of the financial aspects of moving to Canada, this blog helps understand the cost of living in Canada and accordingly budget for accommodation, food, clothing, transportation, insurance, entertainment, and other expenses. 

5. Finding ‘happy-Ness’

The final blog in this series, this one dives into finding out the true reasons for my happiness — whether it was in external factors such as moving to Canada OR if it was something internal that I found within myself — making it a slightly philosophical but enjoyable read. 

Concluding thoughts…

As I end this ‘Immigrating to Canada’ blog series, here’s a tweet that beautifully sums up the sentiment of moving to Canada and making it home: 

This blog series has ended but my blogging hasn’t! Lots of exciting new posts coming up; please cheer on and look forward to it. 🙂
