The Cost Of Moving To Canada


Every year, over 400,000 people immigrate to Canada.
When it comes to cost, Canada is cheaper than other popular destinations, e.g., the USA and Australia.
Note: ($= Canadian dollars):

There are some factors that affect the cost of immigrating to Canada:

  • The size of your family
  • The type of immigration process you choose to work with you

If are thinking of moving to Canada, the first thing you have to do is to start saving money. If you don’t have a job already in Canada when you want to immigrate, we do recommend that you have up to six months of savings to cover for yourself and your family (if they are moving too), because it is important to plan for groceries, transportation, housing and any medical emergency.


Requirement for Express Entry

  • Provide a proficiency test in English or French.
  • For English tests, you can choose to take either IELTS or CELPIP, which will cost about $250-$300.
  • For French tests, you can take the TEF test that costs $400.
  • You may also need to provide a diploma from an institution accredited by the government of Canada or an institution from your home country, which can cost about $250-$1,000.
  • You will need to go through medical examinations that are performed by doctors that are accredited by the government of Canada. It can cost between $250-$500 depending on your country and the accredited medical examiner.
  • Express entry fees cost $850 per adult and $250 per child, if you are moving to a province you are required to pay a provincial fee from $300-$2,000  depending on the province

Temporary Visa and immigration document cost:

The Canadian government requires that all people immigrating to Canada without a job or Canadian experience must have at least:

  • Single ($13,000)
  • Couple i.e family of two ($16,500)
  • Family of 3 ($19,000)
  • Family of 4 ($24,000). An extra $4,000 may apply for any additional family members.

It will cost approximately $3,000-$20,000 to move to Canada depending on the city you want to live in, your standard of living and if you have a job waiting for you in Canada.

There is a lot to consider while moving to Canada, so we strongly recommend that you seek guidance from a Canadian immigration consultant.
