The story of humanity is one of people seeking new opportunities, safety, and adventure. But at the same time, moving to a new country is one of the biggest decisions you'll make. Moving2Canada is here to help you write the next chapter of your story in Canada.

Welcome to Moving2Canada, your free resource hub for navigating life in Canada. Whether you’re planning your move or have recently arrived, we provide the information you need to start strong. Our funding comes from government grants and partnerships with trusted commercial partners, which means we’re able to provide this content to you for free.

Vision & Mission

Our vision is to empower one million newcomers to settle successfully in Canada by 2032, helping them to build better lives in a country that celebrates diversity and offers safety, opportunity, and quality of life.

Our mission is to empower newcomers to create their dream life in Canada.

Why We Do It

Canada faces a challenge: newcomer success and retention. Too often, newcomers like you end up underemployed and unable to reach your potential, sometimes leaving Canada before establishing roots.

Our founder, Ruairi Spillane, saw this and recognized that planning and access to quality information are critical for your success. In 2012, Moving2Canada was started to empower you to build your dream lives here, in Canada. With federal government support, we relaunched our website in 2023 to provide you with even better tools and resources to make your move confidently. We play a critical role in helping you achieve success and stay in Canada long-term.

We’re here to help you every step of the way.

Welcome to your new home.
