I have more than ten years driving, and if you as myself, didn't get the Canadian way at the first, let me tell you it is normal. Canadians drive in a different way than in Latino-Americans, they don't push themselves into the traffic. It is perfectly normal to see a car waiting for people crossing the street.
If you are coming to Canada, as a tourist you can drive with your still valid foreign driving license. However, you must follow the Canadian way. I will write here some details.
If your interest is more how to get a Canadian license, you can read my article where I describe how to shortcut the process using your foreign valid driving license.
After living for 5 years in Canada with three different employers and at least five work permit renewals, I finally got the permanent resident in Canada for me and my family. I will describe in this article how I did it and I will share some few tips.
Please remember I am going to write what to do, not how to do it. I will also describe my specific case, which it will be useful for those who have a similar scenario. Please do not send me questions regarding how to do things or what if you have another profession different than mine, I will just ignore those comments.
"Oh my god! This could be a scam!" - That was my first thought when my friend told me about an application that will actually reward you for doing nothing but walking; I was very skeptical about this. However, because my friend recommended me, I took her word for it. So, I installed and start reading about it. I can tell you, it is true. Its name is Carrot Rewards. I will write here about how it works. Thanks to Jess for introducing me the application.
Carrot Rewards is a product (or service) by Carrot Insights Inc. which it is based in Toronto, Canada. This company, with the sponsoring of the Government of Canada, has found a way to motivate Canadians to have more physical activity by rewarding them.
