Hello Priscilla

I did not use any apps then . Most people did not even own a computer :).
Sites which can be helpful : Kijiji for selling/buying/renting etc. Craigslist too but one has to be careful.
Jobs : Indeed, Monster, LinkedIn etc.

For those who read English : Quora has a good deal of info too especially from foreigners.
People should be careful though about born Canadians who are not very truthful most of the time and are defending their pride.

For those who want to know more about life in Canada, there are good youtube Channels also.

10 years ago I would have advised to read online newspapers : Toronto Sun, The star etc. Now I am not too sure.

Roomster is a good app for finding shared accomodation in GTA

Thank you 🙏🏻 but am in Jordan, and looking for jop in Canada 🇨🇦
