About moving from New Jersey to Canada

In general, the cost of real estate in Canada is considered to be much more affordable than that in New Jersey. However, this is dependent upon where you choose to buy. For many, they can often purchase a home with a much smaller mortgage.

Canada’s health care is publicly (tax-payer) funded: payment is generally not required for medical treatment; although some of the systems and prices are different across the provinces. Even though public health care is paid for, you may want to note that if you fall ill and will require a procedure, generally you will be placed on a waiting list. Private health care by a private insurance carrier is not available.

The cost of living can be comparable to smaller rural cities in the US. Some expenses like gasoline, power, recreation and dining out are lower. Even though power and natural gas may be less expensive you will use considerable more of it in the winter months to heat your home.

Transportation is widely available in the larger cities but rural areas are limited to cars, buses and trains. For local travel there is the subway, bus or taxi. Many people are also using the green option of bicycle or walking as their preference. Most people use a personal auto but be aware that Canadian auto insurance is very expensive. A cheaper way to go if possible is to buy a one month metro pass, which will cost you around $90.

They must make a decision on impressions they form during the first minute or two of the interview. Try and give them the best impression of you be prepared for questions and dress properly for the interview it really helps.”

Tip 2: M. Harmond moved from New Jersey to Canada ten months ago
“All the documents you submit must be translated into either English or French. The official ones will need to be translated by an accredited translator. In some cases, some of the documents and the translations may even need to be notarized. But informal documents (e.g. letters to one another, for example) may be acceptable even if translated by non-accredited translators. Keep that in mind incase you have legal documents that are not in English”

Employment in Canada

Canada is probably one of the most immigrant friendly places in the world. Most people experience an easier transition when it comes to filing for a visa and finding work. Start by acquiring an Canadian Temporary Resident visa application packet by downloading it from the Canadian Immigration resource center.

You need to apply for a work permit from outside Canada. If you are relocating to Canada because of a job offer, make sure you have a letter from your employer on company letterhead stating the nature of your work and working location. Professionals relocating to take a job offer must have a Labour Market Opinion.

If you want to work in a regulated occupation and use a regulated title, you must have a license or a certificate or be registered with the regulatory body for your occupation in the province or territory where you plan to work.

About 20 percent of Canadian jobs are in regulated occupations. Each regulated occupation sets its own requirements for obtaining a licence or a certificate, usually through the provincial or territorial regulatory body or professional association. These jobs are regulated to protect public health and safety and to ensure that professionals meet the required standards of practice and competence.
