Hi,

Currently we are in Quebec with my family (Wife, two children 3 and 5 years old)

We want to move to Burlington, we don't know anyone there but we think that city can be appropriate for us.
I need a lot of information about all, job, housing, children's school and kindergarten, etc.

We are (me and my wife) hispanics, but we are Canadian citizens, our children both were born in Canada; we want to know if we have the right to take the government's english courses?

Is any latino american cooperative to help new comers?
I'm programmer and my wife is Plublic Administrator and we have canadian work experience.

We appreciate all the information that you can give us.

John.

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

You can find some information regarding the area you are interested in, in our Services Near Me section.

Regarding your question about housing, if you are looking for rental housing, the Halton Region has a free tool that you can use called Halton Rent Connect.

You mentioned that you will be moving from Quebec. If your children already speak French, you may also be interested in French-Language school for your children.

Regarding English Classes, many have specific eligibility criteria based on immigration status. It may be best to connect with the nearest organization providing services to newcomers to Burlington for some information regarding what your options are.

Regarding your question about Latino-American Co-operatives or associations, you can find some information by using the Halton Community Services Database.

On the Halton Community Services Database, you can also find information for services to newcomers to Burlington. Some of these services may have specific eligibility criteria.

Hello there,

I am a resident of Quebec and a Canadian citizen at the moment, however, I am planning to move to Ottawa for studies in August 2018. I am getting married in December and will be sponsoring my soon-to-be Husband in the United States. The moving will happen during the application process time. What do I have to do to inform that I will be moving to the immigration office and what does that say about the Quebec Selection program? Will they refuse my application due to moving?

Thank You So Much
Harshi.
