Gone are the days when professionals would stay in the same city for decades, perfecting themselves in their fields of expertise with teachers, trainers and loads of books. People move, they come and go, and in every travel they learn something new and become better at what they do. Sometimes, they will travel for just a few days for some special training, workshop or congress. In these cases, there is little to no logistics to implement: they will simply drive ro take some form of transport to their destination, stay at a hotel, and then go back home.
But what happens when they take home with them? We are speaking about moving across the country and relocating in some other city for a mid- to long-term work opportunity. Some professionals will even move abroad, outside of the United Kingdom, looking for chances to develop their careers and/or improve their lifestyle.
Every year, thousands and thousands of Britons leave the UK and relocate in other countries, and many of them do so in order to find a job in their fields of expertise. For as surprising as it sounds, some professionals actually have a hard time being hired inside the UK. Also, working abroad always adds a great value to a professional's resume, so it is not only job itself but an investment for the future.
Why would so many Britons consider Canada as such a great destination for moving? It is much farther away than European countries, which have great opportunities for qualified professionals and superior education, so why would so many people cross the ocean in order to move there? As you can easily imagine, is a titanic task. As the ocean is in between the UK and the American continent, hiring a truck to move your belongings isn't an option, so you have no choice but to hire more expensive means of transport, like shipping or air freight.
Air freight is definitely way faster than sea transport, but it is also much more expensive. On the other hand, moving household contents in contaniers to Canada is logistically dificult. There may be less warehouse time required, but the delay is much greater. Also, if you're moving to any part of the country that is not around a port in the Atlantic coast, you will need to hire road transport anyway.
What you could be surprised to know that box shipping to Canada has never been easier. Canadian shipping companies based in the UK as well as many British companies that provide international removals services are working to make things faster and less complicated for their clients. Moving abroad is always difficult and always expensive, but if you hire the right company, plan ahead and get informed, you shouldn't have much trouble relocating. Also, remember that if you are moving abroad in order to take a job opportunity, the company that is hiring you might cover all or part of the costs itself.
Canada is a nice country to live in. It has many advantages, geographically as well as politically and culturally. In fact, it is in the top 3 of preferred destinations for tech professionals. Yes, as you hear. Most UK tech firms would consider relcocating to Canada, according to a survey. But why would that be? There are some obvious reasons, like the fact that English is one of the main languages there, so if you relocate to Canada you don't need to learn a different language just as you would if you moved to a country like Germany, Italy or Spain.
Canada itself is a very organized and peaceful country. It doesn't matter if you decide to live in a city or the countryside: you will have good living conditions, a reasonable relation work/lifestyle, a balanced climate and good job opportunities. The Canadian are very open to immigration, and as a British expat you will most definitely find a place there.
You probably did know that Canada is the second largest country in the world after Russia, but what you most definitely didn't know is how little population there is there. We believe that Canada is a hidden gem for British expats as well as other people who want to relocate in the search for a brighter future. It has plenty of places to live as well as many job opportunities for both qualified and non-qualified workers. Required paperwork and immigration policies are also very immigration friendly, so you won't have much trouble moving there. The Canadians are happy to welcome people from other countries who could one day call this snowy and beautiful country home.
