I came to Canada in 2004 and started this site so I could learn more about Canada and the Canadians.  There is now a ton of information available for you to read and I believe it's a great place for prospective immigrants to learn about Canada and for people interested in visiting Canada as we also have lots of videos for you to enjoy. Of course anyone interested in Canadian history will also enjoy this site and we invite anyone with information to share it with us.

My Canadian Experience
My own record of settling in Canada. The Dept. of Immigration of Ontario suggested that it would be interesting if I documented my experiences in coming to Canada and the progress I made towards getting Permanent Landed Status and then on to Citizenship.  I don't pretend this is an exciting read as there is a lot of mundane stuff but you might find it of interest and especially if you are thinking of settling in Canada.

And finally should you have information on any aspects of Canada and its people and way of life please feel free to contribute it to the site.
