In the immigration journey of a newcomer to Canada, the phase between getting a visa and moving to the country is crucial in shaping their eventual settlement and integration experience. Pre-arrival services play a huge role here. But what do these services comprise? How can one sign up? Are the sessions free? In this video, find out all about Planning for Canada, one of the few and unique pre-arrival services funded by the Government of Canada to help immigrants learn about life in the Great North.

Director Holly Skelton shares how Planning for Canada’s globally-accessible services help immigrants prepare for their move, settlement and employment in Canada right from when they are still in their home countries. Their online and on-location teams understand each immigrant’s specific concerns, provide answers and resources, connect them to local agencies and give them a glimpse of the Canadian culture.
