Moving To Canada
There are plenty of sites offering information on how to apply for a Canadian Immigration Visa and many more offering services (paid of course) to help you do it. One of the major issues I had during the immigration process was the actual move itself and what happens when you arrive. I have received plenty of emails through my information website, onestopimmigration-canada.com, asking for additional help and advice about what forms are required, what to expect at the Canadian customs and what...

When you find the property of your dreams, you are then able to enter into negotiations straight away knowing that barring disasters, the financing is in place. One extra...

There are many different methods of financing a home buying purchase that are unique to Canada: Assuming a mortgage - This involves taking over the sellers mortgage and negates the need to arrange your own financing.

The Canadian Political System
The Canadian political system as it is known today was first drafted by the "Fathers of Confederation" at the Quebec conference of 1864.

I'd served 16 years in the Royal Air Force (RAF), so saying goodbye to a “safe” job seemed surreal.
