Before getting to Toronto, most immigrants try as much as possible to cultivate some form of professional contacts that could help them in their job search, in settling down, in their workplace or serve as their supervisors if their coming to Toronto is to further their education. Those who were unable to develop a professional network before coming to Toronto try to do so as soon as they get to Toronto. Others, too, start developing their network after getting a job. Whether you intend to build a professional network before coming to Toronto or after you must have arrived, these are some ways to go about it.

When one first steps foot in Toronto, it almost always seems strange and hard to fit in but if rightly guided, it doesn’t usually take long for anyone from anywhere to become a Torontonian. As you should know from the very onset, Toronto is a city of immigrants. So those who get to be called Torontonians are people who were once strangers in a city holding so much promise.

Montreal is a multi-faceted town which attracts investors as well as families and students and workers from around the world. It offers an unparalleled quality of life to everyone by means of its security, its numerous leisure activities and services and its dynamic way of life. To learn more about the largest city in Quebec, have a look at this article!

Expats usually have a hard time understanding that they are not at home when they are in Montreal, as a result of the French language being omnipresent.

A blog about my expat life in Canada. It's very much about all the beautiful things I find here, but also about some of the things that I miss dearly. It's about me and my life and about all the beautiful things around me - and sometimes the not so beautiful things as well, but always honest and chipper.
