Poll: Mental preparation key aspect for adjusting to Canada life

While planning and packaging can go a long way in making sure the moving process goes as seamlessly as possible, mental preparation may be more important.

According to a recent poll of immigrants who have lived in Canada for 10 years or less, 60 percent of respondents said preparing one’s self emotionally and mentally was the most crucial aspect for what it takes to adjust to Canadian life.

“Moving to a new country is a life-changing decision and being mentally prepared for the challenges of a different culture can really help ensure a successful move,” said Camon Mak, director of multicultural market for Royal Bank of Canada, which conducted the poll. Mak went on to say that becoming involved in a town or city’s community is just as important as the financial and physical changes one may encounter.

Other findings from the poll reveal that immigrants often performed internet searches to learn more about Canada and its offerings prior to moving.

While perusing the world wide web, they may have looked for businesses to help plan their relocation. Jiffy Self Storage primarily offers storage solutions, but it also can provide Canada newcomers’ with answers to their moving questions.
