Many different settlement issues arise when relocating to a new country. To facilitate your smooth transition and relocation to Canada, the United States and other global destinations, it is helpful to gain an understanding of the following relocation topics: tax, employment, social security, health, education, and moving. Destination Canada and Destination United States address each of these topics and more. Should you or your company require assistance relocating to any other country, we invite you to contact the Bomza Law Group for assistance with the immigration and relocation process worldwide.
The Bomza Law Group has prepared a detailed brochure to assist all of our Canadian immigration clients in making a smooth transition to life as a permanent resident in Canada. A hard copy brochure, called Guidelines to Settlement in Canada, is available to you at no charge, provided that you are a current client of the Bomza Law Group. Guidelines to Settlement in Canada is prepared by our settlement consultants in partnership with our Canadian immigration lawyers to provide our clients with a wealth of information covering:
Over the past few years, Canada has experienced dynamic growth and activity in industries such as Information Technology (IT), Oil and Mining, Engineering, Finance and Film Production.
In Canada, there is great need for skilled professionals in particular industries due to the global technology developments of the ‘90’s and the oil and mining boom recently experienced by several Canadian Provinces. Corporations are faced with the challenge of locating skilled professionals and tradespersons abroad. Employers now seek out corporate talent leaders and skilled trades persons not just through North America, but through the rest of the world as well.
We respond to the escalating labour demands in Canada. We assist our talented and experienced professional or skilled trades clients by familiarizing and introducing them to the growing Canadian employment market.
A Social Insurance Number (SIN) is required in order to work in Canada. This card can be applied for at any local Service Canada office. Offices are located in all major cities in Canada. Where an application has been filed in person at the local Service Canada office, you will, in most cases, be issued a SIN on the spot, with the physical card mailed to you at a later date. While there is no charge to make the initial application, charges may apply for replacement of cards if lost or stolen. You may only apply for SIN cards for members of your family who have arrived in Canada.
Health Care Coverage is free in Canada for all Canadian permanent residents, citizens, and even Temporary Canadian Residents who hold employer-specific work permits for at least six (6) months. Health care coverage can be applied for at any local Provincial Health Care office. These offices are located in all major cities in every province and territory in Canada. There is no charge for an application for health care coverage. In most provinces and territories, however, one must be a resident for three (3) months before health care coverage can be accessed. Therefore, it is strongly suggested that you purchase temporary 3-month health care insurance for you and your family, upon first your arriving in Canada. You can only apply for health cards for members of the family who have already arrived in Canada.
