I am planning to land at Toronto Pearson International Airport as a permanent resident in the near future. Please let me know some cheap and best temporary accommodation options where I could stay after landing.

Are there any specific ones that most permanent residents choose for short stay after landing at Toronto Pearson International Airport?

Hi there,

Thank you for sharing your question and situation with us.

For information about finding temporary accommodation, you may find the articles
What kinds of short-term housing are available? and How can I find housing before I arrive? to be useful.

If you arrive at Lester B. Pearson International Airport in Toronto without a place to stay, you can look for the Immigrant Reception and Information Services (IRIS) kiosks in terminals 1 and 3. IRIS keeps a list of low-cost hotels and travellers' hostels in Toronto.

However, do not think only about cost. Make sure that the place you stay is clean, safe and conveniently located. Try to find a place that is close to public transportation or in the area where you would like to live.

We invite other users to share their experiences and recommendations on this topic.

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.
