Welcome To Canada

About the Book

Welcome To Canada is a book about the experience of immigrating to the "Great White North" with its surprises and pitfalls.

Everything in this book has happened to me in one way or another during the two years it took until I finally received my Canadian PR card.

This includes interesting moments dealing with both governments, for example a passport that turned out to be entirely useless and a person that did not know how to dial a long-distance phone number.

The contents of this book go beyond the actual immigration process and compare living in Ontario to my place of birth in Germany.

Finally, my brief impressions of the USA during a short visit will make it into this book as well.
