Are you looking for your first apartment in Quebec? Chances are, you'll encounter 2.5, 3.5, 4.5, etc -- in your quest to find for the perfect place. But what does that mean?
The big house hunt
The first big challenge for a new immigrant is finding an apartment or house to rent. (Even if you have the funds to buy a home outright, it makes little sense doing so until you are certain about where you are going to settle. As for getting a loan at this juncture, forget it).
Your first months in Canada will doubtless provide some of your most interesting memories for years to come. Prepare for something of a roller-coaster ride, especially emotionally, as you experience the highs and lows of starting life in a new country.
