My First Days: A Guide to Your First Two Weeks in Ontario

The "First Days Guide" has useful information for your first 2 weeks in Ontario. It is available in more than 20 languages. We do not have print copies of this guide. You can print out the guide and make copies, if you want to.

This guide, however, cannot answer all of your questions about Ontario. For example, this guide tells you how to find a place to stay when you first arrive but it does not tell you how to find long-term housing. You can find answers to your questions about housing and many other topics on Settlement.Org.

About this Guide

The First Days Guide was written by Settlement.Org staff. Newcomers to Ontario and settlement workers shared their ideas about what information should be included in the guide through their participation in focus groups. For quality purposes, each translation was examined by an independent reviewer. If you have any questions or comments about the guide, please contact us.


The "First Days Guide" is currently being updated, please check back soon.

You can find other helpful information for your first days in the My First Days section​.​
