About Us

Hi there, welcome!

Chalo Toronto is the place where we share information about everything around immigrating to Canada. We want to be a part of your immigration journey from the get-go! Starting with why immigrate to Canada, we want to be there with all the information and support, so your journey is smooth and effortless.

We are a small group of recent immigrants from India. With strong connections with our birth country, we have lived experiences in both countries that we are sharing through this site.

Why did we launch Chalo Toronto? There was a time when many of our family members, friends (and their friends) would ask questions about Canada. Both before and after deciding to immigrate. Sometimes, even after immigrating! Now and then, someone would ping to ask, “how to..?” or “What..” or “Why..?” Often we could answer these questions from our experiences and the knowledge gained by living here. But sometimes we had to check with others, do a little bit of research and contextualize the solution.

When we started curating the questions and our response to them, we realized that we had a good repertoire of information that could be useful to anyone looking to immigrate and settling down in Canada. We wanted to share our experiences and knowledge on a broader platform. That was the reason for “Chalo Toronto” to be born.

We want to motivate and support those who are looking for better education for their children, are looking for an excellent place to raise a family, want to live in a safe and welcoming country and dream of a better quality of life. If you wish to any of the above for yourself and your family, you are in the right place.

On Chalo Toronto,  we share information about understanding the nuances of the culture,  how to find support from the government, and the community agencies, how to navigate various systems such as the banking, the education, the universal health care, finding a job, and settling down to a comfortable life.

Each one of us has had a unique experience of the immigration process, finding jobs, helping children settle down in school and finally settling down as a family. We have lived the immigrant-life as an international student, as a single professional woman, as parents supporting children through their school education and seeing them through the university graduation, and finally getting a job. It is a full circle of life, if you may. We have collectively spent about 30 years and a lot of energy learning about life in Canada, the education system, weather, social services and support systems. As a team, we mirror the journey of immigrants with most profiles. These experiences have given us the insights that we would like to share with you.

A disclaimer is in place here. We are not licensed immigration consultants, and as such, we are not authorized to provide professional and legal support for your immigration process. There may also be instances where we do not have the answer. What we can do is to guide and direct you to the right resources if you have unique queries and requirements.

Please use the contact form to ask us your questions about immigrating to Canada. It does not matter what stage of the immigration process you are in. Whether the thought of immigrating just came to your mind, or you have already done some homework, we are here to answer your questions. We will respond to you within 48 hours.

We hope to see you in Canada soon!
