6 Reasons You Should Visit Canada

Diversity

Canada is known for its diversity throughout the vast nation. We pride ourselves on being a mosaic of all nationalities and religions. Thus, visitors can enjoy a range of diversity amongst the locals, our shops and cuisine.

 

Polite

Canadians are SO polite and will welcome you with open arms. Strangers will hold the door open for you, and if you bump into a Canadian, it’s likely that they’ll apologize to YOU.

 

The food is amazing

Not only are the food options diverse, but our true Canadian staple food items will keep you coming back for more. You won’t find these specialties anywhere else (or  at least not as good). We’re known for our beaver tails (pastry dessert – not made from beavers), poutine, and pure maple syrup!

High quality ski hills

If you’re a big fan of skiing or snowboarding, Canada’s ski resorts should be your top destination. Due to our long and cold winters, our ski resorts stay open for seven months of the year, which is one of the longest ski seasons. You can find incredible ski hills coast to coast, from Whistler, British Columbia to Mont Tremblant, Quebec.

 

Safe

You can rest assured while visiting Canada, as this beautiful nation is considered one of the safest in the world. Canada was ranked eighth safest country in the world. You can thank our peace keeping insticts, strict gun laws, and polite locals for that!

 

Gorgeous nature

The best part about Canada is the beautiful scenery and natural wonders that you can find all throughout the country. From the beautiful east coast all the way to the west, you will not be disappointed. You can find beautiful jagged mountains surrounded by alpine lakes and diverse wildlife in the Canadian Rockies. Or you can visit one of our many national parks like the Bruce Peninsula National Park in Ontario, or the Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta. If you’re willing to embrace the cold weather, you can even go due north to Nunavut and take in the beauty that is wild Polar Bears and tall icebergs

Celebrate Canada’s 150th Anniversary in Style

This year Canada celebrates it’s 150th birthday, and we Canadians are doing it with a bang! If you haven’t already noticed, over the past few weeks, more and more Canada Day preparations have been popping up around Toronto and the GTA. Banners and decorative flowerpots have lined the city, while promotions continue to be announced.

 

To honour this big milestone for Canada, Parks Canada has announced free access to our nation’s treasures for all Canadians and visitors from across the globe. They are inviting everyone to help us celebrate our country’s anniversary with us throughout the whole year.

 

If you’re looking to celebrate Canada Day on July 1st, there are plenty of choices both near and far.

 

If you want our recommendation on the best place to go this Canada Day, and you’re committed to celebrating in style, then take a road trip to our nation’s capital, Ottawa. Take in the beauty of the historic city, while celebrating like a local on Parliament Hill. You can be sure to have a great time when you’re here. There will be festivities over the course of the long weekend, with the bulk of them happening on July 1st. Celebrate Canada Day throughout the afternoon and then cap off the night with exuberant fireworks at 11pm.

 

We know that the drive to Ottawa is taxing, so if you’re more interesting in staying in Toronto or the GTA, you can still find plenty of exciting events happening. Toronto will be host to several events for all different ages and interests. Toronto is hosting Canada Days!, which is a citywide festivity taking place across four major Toronto locations. Here you will find performances by Canadian acts including the Barenaked Ladies, Belly, and Buffy Sainte-Marie.

 

But if you’re like us and want to stay loyal to our home city of Mississauga, then head over to Celebration Square to celebrate Canada Day this year. This hub for Mississauga locals puts on an over the top show each year, featuring local acts, children’s activities throughout the day, and impressive fireworks to end off the night.

5 Things To Do Before Relocating For Work

Whether you’re relocating for a new job, or your current job is asking you to relocate, moving can be both exciting and frightening at the same time. But if you plan ahead and do your necessary research, you can take a lot of the stress out of the move. There are 5 things that you should look into or ask your supervisor before relocating.

 

 

 

 

Ask Your Supervisor About Relocation Benefits

Many companies will provide their employees with relocation benefits when they are necessary. Make sure to ask your supervisor what benefits you are allocated in this process. Some employers partner with a relocation company, which offers many financial benefits. It is important for you to know what you are getting yourself into when agreeing to relocate for work.

 

Choose Short Term Corporate Housing

Corporate housing provides you with several benefits and amenities that you don’t get with hotels. Customers live in luxurious suites, equipped with a full kitchen, laundry, ensuite, free Wi-Fi, and more, for several months at a time. The cost benefit is significantly more effective than staying in a hotel for weeks on end.

 

Living in short term corporate housing for the first few months of your relocation will give you much needed time to get comfortable in the new city and to learn the surrounding neighbourhoods. Living in the city for a few months will help you to make an informed decision when deciding to purchase a new home; you will know what to look for and what neighbourhood is favourable before purchasing a home.

 

Plan A Preview Trip

Plan a trip to your new city before you relocate there. This will help you feel more comfortable with the move and it’ll allow you to start getting to know the area a bit before you’re ready to move. While you’re there, ask your short term corporate housing provider if you can take a tour of the suite to make sure everything is up to your standards.

 

Research The Area

Before you move to your new home, do some research on what’s in the area. This will be different for everybody and is based on your individual differences. You may want to know where the closest gym is, shopping centre, or hospital. If you have an idea of where things are before you move in, you will feel a lot more at ease.

 

Network With Friends or Colleagues in the City

Relocating is considerably easier when you have friends to comfort you. If you don’t have any friends already living in the city, ask your employer if they can connect you with a colleague working in the city. You will be able to ask them questions, and have a friendly face on your first day at work.
