It’s exciting to daydream about living abroad — to pack up your belongings and leave Canada to start an adventure of a lifetime. Many people dream of taking the leap to a new country but get discouraged when they think about the logistics involved. While moving out-of-country requires some planning, it’s not as complicated as people imagine.
There are so many benefits to living abroad. Beyond experiencing a new place, culture and people, it’s an opportunity for personal and career growth. The real-world experience gained can be used to fuel new opportunities both in your personal and professional life.
However, leaving Canada can have a few drawbacks. There can be a steep learning curve while adjusting to a new language or customs, and it can be frustrating to try to complete daily tasks in an unfamiliar place. But, over time, you’ll become accustomed to the new way of living and you’ll likely find that the benefits far outweigh the negatives.
