    Navigating the Challenges of Living in a New Country
    Enter Tuloy Canada, an online guide for newcomers from the Philippines and from other countries that provides valuable information on Canada’s geography, climate, employment leads and education opportunities, and government services. It also offers advice on how to navigate the Canadian job market, find affordable housing, and understand the local culture.

    Tuloy Canada provides resources so newcomers can maneuver through their new reality and do normal and necessary things like find a place to stay, search for a job that would enable them to pay bills and buy groceries, learn to navigate the transit system to get from one place to another, how to open a bank account and secure a social insurance number, health card, driver’s license, and how to find a school for those who have children.

    ABS-CBN Managing Director for North and Latin America Jun Del Rosario affirms that the Tuloy Canada campaign “is part of our continuing mission to serve the Filipino wherever he may be.” Take the case of the Sim family, for instance.
    Rain Sim arrived with his wife Melody and their three-year-old son, Jacob last August. “It was a big adjustment,” Sim admits. The couple had a comfortable life where they both worked managerial jobs and owned a car. They gave up that life to move to Canada where they now take the bus and are working entry-level jobs.

    Del Rosario says that ABS-CBN will be coordinating with Immigration Canada and other government and non-government groups to provide more resources and to continually update information on the Tuloy Canada site.

    Filipino newcomers in Canada can also get free gifts when they sign up, like a one-month free subscription to iWantTFC, so they can keep up with their favorite Filipino shows and still feel at home even if they are many miles away.

    Tuloy Canada is an invaluable guide for those who are looking to make Canada their new home. Newcomers to Canada are encouraged to share their stories or provide feedback and other pertinent advice or tips by sending an email to TFCMarketing@abs-cbn.com
