Moving back to Canada


New entry requirement now in effect

Visa-exempt foreign nationals need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid Canadian visa. Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, and Canadian permanent residents cannot apply for an eTA.

Canadians moving back to Canada after living abroad need to find a job, find place to live, get a new driver’s licence and health card, find a doctor, put their name on the voter’s list, find child care, schools and recreational facilities and much more.  All of these pressing issues and more fall under provincial or territorial responsibility, and each province and territory has its own requirements.
