Last minute checklist
We recommend putting together a list of every single thing you need to do and remember before you go. It is often the most obvious checks that are forgotten in the excitement of your emigration to Canada – things like your flight booking and checking your passport’s expiration date.
✔ Important contacts
Keep the contact details to hand of any emergency contacts, your legal and visa advisors
, and anyone else you may need to get in touch with in a hurry.
✔ Get all your papers together
Paperwork is arguably number one on this list – you will need to have all relevant information in one place to make sure that it’s there when you need it. This includes correspondence with immigration departments, medical records, school reports, references and anything else. You will also need to make sure you close any bank accounts that you will no longer be using. Passports, Visas… check!
✔ Say your goodbyes…
Lastly, make sure that you make plans to say goodbye to your friends and family if you are moving to Canada permanently or longer term – it seems obvious, but it can be so easy to forget to do so with such excitement going on and so much to do!
