Hi guys just wanting some tips on setting myself up in Canada, I know all about the visas I'm just interested in things like
- setting up a bank account (which company)
- what is the best mobile/cell company
- where do I set up a social insurance number
- what is the best job website
Banks - If you do most of your banking online, Tangerine would be the way to go. There are no fees, but also only about 5 proper branch locations across the country. But they are owned by Scotiabank and you can use any of their ATM's free of charge.
Mobile/Cell - depends on where you live. Wind Mobile is incredible, but they are still slowly building their infrastructure and outside of major areas reception is almost non-existent. But they are constantly putting up towers and expanding.
Social Insurance Number (SIN) - Service Canada office. search their website for a location finder.
Job website - The hottest one right now seems to be indeed.ca about 3 years ago
