Fortunately, Canadian, especially young people of Canada are constantly taking different initiatives to help newcomers better adjust to the Canadian lifestyle. There are a lot of volunteer organizations especially designed to help these people feel more at home.
But, doing everything Canadian citizens can to make newcomers to settle faster and feel welcome is one thing, and being able to take a personal initiative and action to help yourself is another. The second one is a must. If you have just settled yourself and your family in Canada, then, there is no one that can really help you if you don’t want to and don’t work on helping yourself.
Below you can find some of the most common things to do in order to start learning and perfecting the Canadian lifestyle much easier.
One of the first, most common things to do is to join a Newcomer Association. Since most communities in Canada already have associations that are specifically geared toward newcomers, finding one won’t be hard. They usually offer a large variety of resources such as job search assistance and also language training. This is also an amazing way to get to know new Canadian people who are going through a similar experience.
You can also try new activities or volunteer. Being open to take new actions such as different sports like hiking, skiing etc. is a great idea to start learning a bit more about the Canadian lifestyle. You can even volunteer and create new connections, but also feel good and useful during the settlement period.
