Mostly you will hear accents from all over the world when you are out since there are so many immigrants from so many different places.
We learned something new here (e.g. Trrono, eh, etc)... Hope others who are more established Canadian PRs/citizens may also post their experiences related to Canadian english language/accent/diction for the prospective immigrants benefit. thanks...

Good day!

We all know that most of the immigrant applicants come from countries where English is the second language.

Once we are approved and landed in Canada (God willing!), proficient in English of course will help us in the integration, settlement and adaptation process and finding a suitable employment.

In this regard, pls advise us what sort of English accent do Canadians use? Is it British or American? what suggestions or tips can u give to hasten the learning process? Is it worthwhile to always watch foreign english channel of cable tV? What particular channel can u suggest?

thanks for your time to answer this.
