      Hi Roberto, thanks for your message. In order to start your immigration process from the very
      beginning, I think you should go to the Canadian Government website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/index.asp
      They have detailed information there. It’s important to note that sometimes the details and regulations
      change. That’s why it’s important to get your information directly from the government of Canada.
      You can also try to contact the Canadian Embassy or Consulate in your home country, as they may be
      able to provide assistance or information in your home language as well. There are agencies in most
      countries who provide many immigration-related services as well. They typically charge fees, but
      the immigration process involves application and processing fees anyway. If you find an immigration
      agency or consultant with a good reputation for being reliable and following all legal regulations
      properly, it may be worth it. There is a lot of document work involved, and the application package
      itself can be complicated. Good luck getting started.

    I am a new immigrant/refugee currently in Alberta and coming to do my MBA degree at TRU. I am looking to be connected to furniture banks and thrift shops for second hand furniture and kitchen utensils as I would like to live off compass as this is much cheaper for me.
