When moving to a new country, one of the major concern, is accommodation. Accommodation has to come first even before getting a job.
Depending on the medium through which you choose to get to Canada, accommodation could be arranged for you or you’d have to arrange for accommodation yourself.
While answering visa questions, accommodation is going to be discussed hence, this is something you can’t skip. Thankfully, we did talk on a few sites through which you can arrange for accommodation in Canada.
In this post, we will be looking at how to get permanent accommodation in Canada for new immigrants.
In this article, we will be talking on two vital subjects. These are;
- What you need to do before you enter into Canada
- What you need to do upon arrival in Canada.
Now, let’s talk on the first.
What You Need To Do Before Entering Into Canada
Before entering into Canada as an immigrant, there are a few things you should do. On this blog, we’ve talked on some of these things. However, we’d still be letting you in on these things in this post.
Prior to when you decide to immigrate to Canada, it’s necessary you sort out accommodation. This however, doesn’t have to be permanent. For the most part, you can only sort out permanent residence when you get to Canada.
If for some reason, you are comfortable with hotels, there are different hotels with different rates charges available in Canada. You can search online for an idea on how much this cost. You can even make reservation and the likes online.
Asides accommodation, it’s important you arrange and perhaps, move with every document you deem necessary. Your medical records, CVs, marriage records, academic degrees etc. Whatever document you deem necessary, you should take along. This can come in handy in cases where you get into some sorta trouble that requires some documents.
What You Need To Do Upon Arrival In Canada
If you plan on moving from your temporary residence to a permanent residence, there are a few key factors to put in mind when scorting for an accommodation. These are;
- Your budget
- Proximity to workstation
- Human relations skills
Your budget helps you pick an accommodation within your means. It makes sense to only scale your budget upwards If it’s worth it and you can totally afford it. Otherwise, stick to what you can afford.
Proximity to work is equally necessary for seeking for a permanent residence. If you have a job, you want to make sure your home isn’t too distant from work. Otherwise, the long term stress could be tedious.
Your human relationship skill is equally very important. This is not only necessary for seeking accommodation, but also necessary for day to day living.
It is important to note that accommodation in Canada is usually on a first come, first served basis and applications are received at the start of each month. You’d expect that before the middle of the month, all the good spots would have sold out, so you have to be on the lookout. We wish you all the very best!
