Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) on Friday introduced two videos to help new immigrants to Canada prepare for life in their new country.
The first video, entitled Before Arriving in Canada, explains what immigrants can do before they arrive to Canada to settle in Canada and find a good job more quickly. Suggestions include:
- if English or French ability is limited, improving language skills
- gather all important documents, like birth certificates and dental records, and bring them to Canada
- getting certified translations of important documents
- preparing for accommodations before leaving for Canada
The second video, Your First Two Weeks in Canada, includes explanations on what immigrants can expect at the airport when arriving in Canada, how newcomers can use immigrant-serving organizations to get assistance and information, and what government documents they need to apply for upon their arrival.
The videos can be seen below:
