Planning a Calgary Move
Calgary is home to 1.6 million people, and there are more than 23,000 American expats living in this quickly growing Canadian city. When planning to live in Calgary long-term, you should know that it can take several years to acquire residency in the country due to Canada’s stringent immigration policy.
To relocate, you will need to get a visa, and will also need to hire a reputable international mover to manage the moving services. Here are some things to consider when planning a move to Calgary:
- Downsize– It’s important to sort through personal belongings ahead of a move. This is especially true when making an international move to Canada from the United States. To downsize, start with one room at a time and go through everything. Items that have not been used in six months or more, are torn up, or otherwise not wanted should be tossed. You can always have a moving sale to make a little cash from the unwanted items, or you can donate to charity, or even gift items to friends or family.
- Visa- You will need a visa to move to Calgary. You can visit the Government of Canada website for immigration information. You can immigrate to Canada as a skilled worker, sponsored by family, for education, or for work purposes in many fields of employment.
- Moving Services- Three Movers has long provided professional, full service moving services for moving to Canada. Whether you need full services including packing and door to door delivery, or you prefer to handle some of it on your own and have the company handle the relocation, we’ve got you covered with insured, professional moving staff to manage every aspect of the move for you. Price will depend on the distance, and the specific services necessary for the move.
- Auto Transport- To move a vehicle to Calgary, you will need a professional auto transport company with experience in international transport to Canada. Cost will vary depending on the distance, type of car, and how it is shipped.
- Storage- Storage for items that cannot be taken during the move, or for items to be stored while home hunting in Calgary is easy to obtain and will often start at rates just over $100 USD per month depending on the size of the storage unit.
Here are a few quick facts that you may want to know about Calgary:
- Housing in Calgary can be expensive. It’s a good idea to work with a local realtor to find suitable housing.
- The crime rate is low.
- You will find a diverse population in Calgary.
- The average age in Calgary is 36.
- Universal health care is available in Calgary, and expats may be able to access this depending on the visa type they hold.
- French is the primary language, but there are many English-speaking people, so getting around, shopping, dining, and more is usually simple to do.
