Canada is a large country with many places to live, each with its own weather, culture, services and more.
As a new immigrant, especially with family and small children, or a student, professional or a business person, it becomes extremely difficult to know the rules, regulations and post landing immigration requirements when you are already occupied thinking about other necessities such as accommodation, language skills, work etc.

Sometimes, new immigrants struggle to meet deadlines for crucial processes like applying for health cards or SIN number or health insurance and driving license which affects their mental health and overall wellbeing.
In all such cases, we can provide a host of services for making your initial experience smooth and to settle down quickly.

Canada’s health insurance system is tax-payer funded. It is designed so that all residents of Canada have access to health care. To access health care under this system you must have a health card issued by the government of the province or territory where you live.
Residents in Ontario must wait up to three months before they can get a health card to get coverage under the government health insurance plan in that province.

This is a must considering that medical services can cost dearly if you are not insured in Canada.
