Event 5: Rentals for Newcomers

The No. 1 question renting newcomers to Canada grapple with when they arrive is, “Where am I going to live?” Temporarily, it may be a hotel, short-term rental, family, friends or a hostel. In the longer term, you will need to find your own place to rent. Luckily, newcomers can search for a rental before coming to Canada. Find out why Rentals For Newcomers is your most direct route to connecting with landlords who value newcomers as tenants and how you can save time and reduce the costs associated with your rental search upon arriving in Canada.

Event 6: Canadian Immigration
What You Need to Know

Understanding the Canada immigration process is essential if you’re thinking about immigrating to Canada. Knowing the immigration process is critical to achieving a successful application. Interest in immigrating to Canada remains high despite issues that are affecting the process. Some of these issues include the changing global economy due to COVID-19, border regulations, immigration freezes, and developments in the United States, as well as the rest of the world (namely Australia, United Kingdom, and New Zealand). In this free webinar, you’ll hear from Blayne Kumar, Founder and CEO from Bright Immigration.
