“Welcome to the Immigration Portal.” That sounds pretty cool.
Now try it in a Dalek voice: “WELCOME TO THE IMMIGRATION PORTAL! WELCOME TO THE IMMIGRATION PORTAL!” That sounds pretty bloody cool.
The Immigration Portal is a very useful website resource created by the City of Toronto to help those thinking of starting a new life here.
This page is particularly handy as it helps you to prepare BEFORE arriving, with relevant checklists, the applications and forms you need, how much it costs to live in Toronto and — of course, every Brit’s favourite small talk subject matter — the weather.
The Working in Toronto section contains links to job boards and also Enterprise Toronto for business development purposes.
For those who speak other languages — such as Welsh or Brummie — you can also get assistance here.
All in all, this is a great resource for Brits who have just arrived in Toronto and those who are planning the move. Take some time to read it and you’ll learn a lot!
