Reviews - What do customers think about Living and Working in Canada, Third Edition: A Survival Handbook (Living & Working in Canada)?

Information On Almost Everything  Jan 6, 2008
This book touches on just about everything you might think of when you're planning your move to Canada, including buying a car, banks, public transit, temporary accommodations, the health system, different kinds of insurance, finding employment, and more. Note that this book is not for people who want comprehensive instructions on how to obtain a visa, although it has lots of good information about it.
Not recommended for Americans  Mar 30, 2007
This is an overlong tome written too obviously by a British gent, complete with quaint British prejudices.

Most of the information contained within may be new to Europeans, but Americans wishing to emigrate to Canada will not find it very useful, other than to confirm that America and Canada have very similar modes of daily life.

A better book is "How to Move to Canada: a Primer for Americans."
Comprehensive  Nov 10, 2006
This offers a comprehensive overview of the daily details of living in Canada. It does not provide much information for retiress wishing to move or live there.
A great help to those wishing to live in sunny/freezing Canada  Feb 17, 2006
This book has proved to be an invaluable source of information about living in Canada (I split my time between Ontario and London). It covers everything you could wish to know, from the education system to buying a house, and from buying a car to the tax system. There's also stacks of information about Canada's vibrant entertainment scene and the great outdoors (of which there's a huge amount!). I can't quite understand Damian's review - the book's excellent.

Content far too general to be of any real use  Sep 7, 2005
I bought this book as I was moving to Canada to take up a research job in a university in Ontario. I had hoped that it would guide me through some of the pitfalls associated with moving to a new country. I read it from cover to cover before I left Ireland and when I arrived, I found 99% of the information it provides is completely unnecessary. It provides no solid information for setting up health care, doing taxes, or how Canada is structured and what you can expect in terms of bureaucracy, be it in a bank, government office or just the workplace. For eg, the note in the book to bring bank references, my bank here didn't even look at them, didn't want to even. The information it does provide is useful only if you haven't worked before or you've been unconscious for the last 10 years. Waste of money!!
