Dear Sir/Madam,

I received my PR cards through Nomination Program from Nova Scotia and I landed in March 2017. But I am unable to find a job here (I am a Mechanical Engineer), therefore, I want to move to Toronto now.

In that case, will Ontario Immigration support to get all the benefits which every immigrant get after landing in Ontario. I confirmed from Nova Scotia Immigration department for moving to another province, they do not have any problems and I can move to any other province.

Can you please throw some light upon the benefits which I can get if I move to Ontario?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in this type of information.

There are some things that are specific to the province of Ontario that you will need to look into.

One of them is related to health insurance.

You can find some detailed information related to applying for the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) in our Settlement.Org How do I apply for a Health Card (OHIP)? article.

According to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care website,

If you move to Ontario from another province or territory where you had provincial/territorial health insurance coverage:

If you move to Ontario directly from another province and apply for coverage, your OHIP coverage will begin on the first day of the third month after establishing residence in Ontario, provided you were insured in your previous province or territory.

Your valid health card from your former province will continue to provide you with health insurance coverage in accordance with that province/territory's plan during the waiting period.


Another thing that is specific to the province of Ontario that you will need to look into is regarding your Ontario Driver's Licence.

You can find some detailed information in our Settlement.Org I have a driver's licence from another province in Canada. How do I get an Ontario driver's licence? article.

In terms of finding work when you arrive in Ontario, it may be helpful to contact the nearest Employment Service for some assistance.

You can find some detailed information in our Settlement.Org Why should I get help to find work? article.


I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
