Story about Canada Immigration

Getting adjusted to a new surrounding is difficult at the best of times. However, the difficulty quotient is all that much more when you are an immigrant in a new country thousands of miles away from home. At first glance, the people are different, the buildings look different and the weather is definitely different from what you have experienced. Any person who is planning on Immigrating To Canada will hear many interesting stories about winter in Canada. No matter how prepared you are, the winter is bound to take you by surprise. The temperatures in certain areas of Canada can reach as low as -300C which can be quite extreme to immigrants from India who thinks 70C is freezing weather. Having said that it is not all dismal, and with a few preparations and precautions you would be ready to tackle your first and every other winter in Canada and welcome them with the same gusto of a local.

Pack Warm Clothes

This is one piece of advice you will be getting from anyone and everyone who knows about your plans for immigrating to Canada. Canadian winters are famous for their extreme chill factor. It is not called the Great White North for anything! Pack enough warm clothes for your entire family and then pack some more. You will need a pullovers, scarves, thermal wear, rain and snow jackets- known as parka in Canada, should you need to buy one there, gloves and socks. If you have relatives and friends in the vicinity of where you are about to leave, then ask them to stock up for you.

Dress in Layers

As Indians, we are not used to dressing in layers. We are mostly happy to put on a pullover over our T-shirt and calling it a day. However, as someone who is newly immigrating to Canada, it is important to dress in layers. Wearing multiple layers of clothing helps to trap the cold air between layers and increase the warmth around our bodies

Get enough Exercise

With the landscape completely covered with snow and freezing temperatures outside, it is quite tempting to order food from a local eatery and stay in all the time. However, the best way to beat the cold as someone newly immigrating to Canada is to go out and get moving. Staying in the house for prolonged periods can lead to a mild form of depression and illness known as cabin fever. Bundle yourself and family up in the warmest of clothes, and go out and have fun. Take a walk on the freshly fallen snow, have a snowball fight and build a snow fort.

Eat nutritious food

What has food got to do with the biting cold, a lot it would seem? Eating a healthy balanced diet can help to improve your metabolism, which can slow down drastically in cold weather. The winters in Canada is when the sun literally goes away to hide. The lack of sunlight can cause a deficiency of vitamin D which can cause depression in people. It is therefore important to eat food that is fortified with Vitamin D.
