A Newcomer’s Guide to Canadian Finances
Moving to a new country and starting your life there can be a stressful experience. Thankfully, you don’t have to go through it alone. Join us to look at some of the specifics of life in Canada, like costs, banking and credit, and the income and personal tax systems. Learn from the experience of other newcomers to Canada, and the things they wish they knew when first arriving.
The goal of “A Newcomer’s Guide to Canadian Finances” is to provide you with the foundational knowledge necessary to prepare for life in Canada and manage your finances as a new arrival. You will learn about life in Canada, such as the costs you can expect, considerations when renting, and scams to watch out for; the differences between banks in Canada and how to get started with credit; and the ins and outs of earning income in Canada and paying personal income taxes. Starting over doesn’t mean starting from scratch—learn from the experiences of others to help make your transition to Canada as easy as possible.
