  • In New Zealand, visit this website to apply: http://www.aa.co.nz/motoring/driver-licences/international-driving-permit/
  • You will be permitted to drive any vehicle, whilst in Canada, for which you are licensed in Australia or New Zealand for the first three months.
  • After three months you will be considered a resident of the Province in which you are residing and will need to obtain a Drivers Licence for that Province.

The Three Essentials to Work in Canada.

  • A Social Insurance Number (SIN)
    • This is the same as your Tax File Number in Australia.
    • You will need to visit a Service Canada office in Canada OR you can download and complete the forms and send it off once you get to Canada.
  • A Canadian Bank Account.
    • Like Australia, there are a number of banks in Canada and all have their benefits.
    • We suggest you wait until you get to your job and open an account with the same bank as your employer as they will often have a good relationship with a local branch.

  • A cell phone.
    • In Canada, cell (mobile) phones have area codes as well, so you will need to wait until you get to your job and get a cell phone that has coverage and a local number in the area where you will be living.
    • You will pay to make AND receive calls in Canada.
    • Some employers will issue you with a phone for local and work use.
    • SKYPE or “Liberty” international calling cards are the cheapest way to call home.

Further information on the steps above can be found on our FAQ’s page or by contacting Stuart. We are here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
