Moving to

Canada

Through decades of experience in relocation, we have formulated the most efficient ways of properly moving you and your family to Canada. We can assist you with a safe and stress-free international move to Canada.

Culture

Canada’s culture draws influences from its broad range of constituent nationalities, and policies that promote a “just society” are constitutionally protected. Canada has placed emphasis on equality and inclusiveness for all its people. Multiculturalism is often cited as one of Canada’s significant accomplishments, and a key distinguishing element of Canadian identity. In Quebec, cultural identity is strong, and there is a French Canadian culture that is distinct from English Canadian culture. However, as a whole, Canada is, in theory, a cultural mosaic—a collection of regional ethnic subcultures.

Geography

By total area (including its waters), Canada is the second-largest country in the world, after Russia. By land area alone, however, Canada ranks fourth, due to having the world’s largest proportion of fresh water lakes.Of Canada’s thirteen provinces and territories, eight share a border with the United States, and only two are landlocked (Alberta and Saskatchewan), with the remaining eight provinces and three territories directly bordering one of three oceans. Ontario and Quebec also send most of their shipping traffic through the St. Lawrence Seaway, which connects the Great Lakes to the St. Lawrence River, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean.

Economy

Canada is the world’s tenth-largest economy as of 2018, with a nominal GDP of approximately US$1.73 trillion. It is one of the least corrupt countries in the world, and is one of the world’s top ten trading nations, with a highly globalized economy. Canada has a mixed economy ranking above the U.S. and most western European nations on The Heritage Foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom, and experiencing a relatively low level of income disparity. The country’s average household disposable income per capita is “well above” the OECD average. The Toronto Stock Exchange is the ninth-largest stock exchange in the world by market capitalization, listing over 1,500 companies with a combined market capitalization of over US$2 trillion.

History

Indigenous peoples in present-day Canada include the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis, the last being a mixed-blood people who originated in the mid-17th century when First Nations and Inuit people married European settlers. The term “Aboriginal” as a collective noun is a specific term of art used in some legal documents, including the Constitution Act 1982.

Government and politics

Canada is described as a “full democracy”, with a tradition of liberalism, and an egalitarian, moderate political ideology. An emphasis on social justice has been a distinguishing element of Canada’s political culture. Peace, order, and good government, alongside an implied bill of rights are founding principles of the Canadian government.

For entry into most countries, on a long-term or permanent basis, it will be necessary to have the appropriate Visa and passport requirements. You should contact the Consulate of the country to which you are relocating to ensure that your documentation is in order, and that entry of both yourself and your goods is allowed. Some countries apply strict regulations to the importing your household effects and heavy financial penalties can be applied if the appropriate Visa’s or work permits are not in place. Overseas Moving Scene cannot advise you in respect of immigration and the Consular Representative should be equipped to advise you of all documentary requirements and how to apply for appropriate Visa’s and work permits.

The varied sizes, shapes and structures of household furniture create inherent risks, and, despite our special packing materials and careful handling by our staff, these risks cannot be fully eliminated. Overseas Moving Scene has a limited liability policy which can be extended to cover wider forms of liability if required.
