"This book is well written, very informative and a must for anyone considering a move to Canada. It gives information on everything that you could think of, and give details of lots of useful websites and contacts etc. It is also and easy read and can be read from cover to cover or just taking bites when needed. Clear list of Contents, lots of things I didn't realise I needed, it's actually a really nicely designed book too, broken into easy readable chunks. Great buy, I would definitely recmmend this book if you want to move to Canada! Love it!" - A Burford, Amazon

We are currently going through the immigration process and this book has been a great tool. The content is general to Canada but has good links to websites etc.. I have read it cover to cover, learnt lots of good tips and regularly use it as a reference when i'm looking for quick info.. would recommend for anyone going through the process. - lancslass

Bought as a birthday present. I think it was appreciated as it has been read from cover to cover. Thanks. - Nina Deverell, Amazon

Reading the book I could imagine so vivid all the topics as I have lived there for several years. The topic to immigrate to Canada seems to be not so easy but the book helps in so many aspects of working and living that after a while you can feel the touch of the country. - zdanko
