4.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive guide to living and working in Canada, 15 July 2007

This review is from: Living and Working in Canada (Living & Working in Canada) (Paperback)
This book really does cover a large number of topics that are involved in moving to Canada. Many people probably assume that they know what to expect from this beautiful country but I strongly believe that more research in advance makes for a more successful move.

This book is a good reference guide. Even now, when I am running a relocation business helping others move to British Columbia, I find the occasional need to refer to this book.

Finding a job is one of the main issues that people deal with when moving to Canada. While this book is of some help in this, I felt that this topic was not given enough emphasis. Perhaps that deserves a book in it's own right.

Overall the book is a good reference and will help you prepare for relocating to Canada.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent newcomers guide, 2 Jan 2008

Having recently located from one capital city (London) to another (Ottawa) I can thoroughly recommend this guide to anybody contemplating a similar move. So far (three weeks in Canada and counting) I have not found a topic that I needed advice on that this book could not answer. In fact, I have frequently found that I am perhaps better informed than some of the resident population! The book's style is open and engaging, and where differences between provinces exist they are outlined accurately and succinctly. My only, minor, criticism is that the indexing could be better, but not by much. If you combine this book with one of the better tourist guides I can't see that there would be much you aren't prepared for.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Living and Working in Canada (Living & Working in Canada) (Paperback)
Useful book. Packed with tons and tons of useful information about moving, costs, problems, good reasons etc to go, issues, visas etc .. everything you need to know (probably)

Still living in the UK, that is not the fault of the book though.

5.0 out of 5 stars where i want to be, 1 Feb 2009

This review is from: Living and Working in Canada (Living & Working in Canada) (Paperback)
I bought this book as 1 of 3 on the subject. I hope to move out to Canada in 2010, & find the information not dated, written with humour & feeling, rather than just pages of fact & figures. Well worth the money.
