Default Brand New - moving to Canada

Hello there,

Im living in Scotland with my 7 year old daughter and have family in St Catharines, Toronto, Canada and am researching trying to find out how to move there or at least Toronto! I would guess that I would work in Toronto...not sure where to look for accommodation and what would be a good area for my daughter to go to school or for us to live. I am not sure if I would qualify for some sort of relative visa as my family are distant relatives and also without childcare assistance, is there breakfast and after school clubs.....?

Just trying to research all options and get some feedback and all help would be very much appreciated!

Thanks!

Hello...welcome to BE.

I love Toronto...love being by the lake. We've just got back from spending time there. We have many members who live in Toronto and the surrounding areas. They will do their best to answer any questions you may have about moving or living in T.O.

I'll give you a few relevant links to help you find your feet around the forums. If you click on this link it will direct you to the index page of the main Canada forum. At the top of the page you will see a list of sub forums...the top one being the Immigration Forum. Any questions relating specifically to visas and/or the immigration process should be posted there. The main forum is for topics relating to Canada and the Maple Leaf is for general chatter. We have a lively group of posters...so you should get many helpful answers to your questions. Please take a few moments to read any sticky threads or announcements that may be posted at the top of each forum's index page.

The BE Wiki is a great source of information...I recommend you take a read through the Canada section.

If you have any problems finding your way around the many BE forums AmyDavid is the concierge for the Canada forums...she will be act as your BE tour guides to help you find your way around.

For any other questions, problems or concerns please contact a moderator. The mods for the Canada forums are Iaink and Christmasoompa.

Good luck with your quest. Should you have any problems please give me a shout.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
