Starting a New Life in Canada!
Canada might be very different from your home country, which means there is a great deal to learn and explore here. I want to talk about important things.
The landscapes and climate of Canada
Canada is the second largest country on the earth, and in most places Canada has four distinct seasons; spring summer fall and winter
Summers in Vancouver can be hot, but are usually pretty mild.
Day time temperatures in Vancouver range between 20 and 30 degree celsius.
While Vancouver is rather dry in the summer, the provinces of Ontario and Quebec are extremely humid. So Toronto feels much hotter than Vancouver in the summer! The fall, spring and winter is much, much rainier in Vancouver and you have to be prepared to bring your umbrella! Ontario and Quebec has beautiful fall colours and is much cooler, and much drier than Vancouver in the fall.
Languages of Canada
Canada is a multi-cultural country, and that means it has as many cultures and languages as it does climates!
languages of Canada are French and English.
Before coming to Canada you definitely need to study English to start your new life.
And if you plan on moving to Quebec, the Ottawa area, or even Nova Scotia then you should probably learn some French too!
Strong English or French language skills are important for the following reasons;
- Getting a good job
- Meeting and interacting with interesting people
- Getting your Canadian citizenship
