Ottawa, April 19, 2013 — New immigrants can now access two new videos at cic.gc.ca to help them navigate their way before and during their first weeks in Canada, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney announced today.
“By providing newcomers with practical advice and information before and as soon as they arrive, we can help them integrate more quickly into the Canadian economy and their new local community,” said Minister Kenney. “These videos complement the new Welcome to Canada guide and provide newcomers with a practical checklist of things to do as they prepare to come to Canada and as they settle.”
The Before Arriving in Canada video recommends that newcomers bring all their personal identification documents with them and have all their official documents translated into English or French before coming to Canada, among many other recommendations. The Your First Two Weeks in Canada video explains to newcomers the importance of obtaining a Social Insurance Number, contacting a local settlement organization and finding employment.
The 10-minute videos are part of a series of tools designed by the Government of Canada to help immigrants get the best possible start in their new country. These tools include the new Welcome to Canada guide and the Web-based tool Living in Canada, which were unveiled recently.
