Arrival Survival Canada: A Handbook for New Immigrants is a guide to life in Canada. It covers many subjects, such as packing before emigrating, opening bank accounts, creating a credit history, and understanding Canadian school systems. The book teaches readers about Canadian culture and gives solutions to the most common newcomer problems.

In addition to the authors' own first-hand account of their adjustment to life in Canada, this book includes 30 real-life immigrant experiences and success stories, from Senator Mobina Jaffer, to Olympic wrestler Daniel Igali, to immigrants from all walks of life.

Arrival Survival Canada:
  • Provides newcomers with the detailed information they need to be successful in their first year in Canada.
  • Connects with newcomers through stories about immigrants’ authentic experiences and successes.
  • Engages readers with dynamic maps, graphs, and tables that help them relate to and understand the text.
  • Incorporates frequently asked questions for quick reference.
  • Helps newcomers learn fun, interesting facts about Canada.
  • Encourages newcomers to be active readers and personalize the universal information in the book to their specific needs with the Creating Your Canadian Experience feature at the end of each unit .
  • Includes a glossary of key terms to explain new, unfamiliar, and specifically Canadian words.
Author Naeem “Nick” Noorani and his wife Sabrina bring a first-hand account of what life is like after emigrating to Canada. The Nooranis and their children immigrated to Canada from India via Dubai in 1998. From a desire to see the transition for other newcomers, they founded the Canadian Immigrant magazine, a monthly publication for immigrants. Nick, with a weekly “Ask Nick” segment on CBC’s Radio Canada International, has become a leading voice for the immigrant community, has won numerous awards and recognitions, and is on the boards of several newcomer agencies.

Arrival Survival Canada provides immigrants, and people considering immigration, with a base of information upon which to build their new lives. This book will also appeal to adult intermediate ESL learners; specifically newcomers to Canada before arrival or during the initial year following arrival in Canada.
