Canada is one of the most popular destinations for immigrants, and every year more than 250,000 people make Canada their new home. Immigrate to Canada (Self-Counsel, 2015), co-authored by Nick Noorani and Catherine A. Sas, explains Canada’s immigration procedures and offers advice to help applicants ensure their documents are in order. It also offers insights on preparing for a move to Canada, and what to expect during the process.

More than 250,000 immigrants arrive in Canada each year, and making the transition to life in a new country can be overwhelming. Nick Noorani’s 365 Tips for Newcomers (Self Counsel, 2015) offers new immigrants advice on how to make the move to Canada a success. From information about banking, schools, real estate and medical services, this book will guide newcomers through their first year in Canada.

Naeem "Nick" Noorani was born in Mumbai. He and his wife Sabrina came to Canada from India in 1998, after a stint in Dubai. The pair wrote a how-to guide for new immigrants called Arrival, Survival Canada, co-authored with journalist Lynda Cumming, that covered banking, income tax, driving, citizenship and job-seeking. From the roots of Arrival, Survival, Noorani founded Canadian Immigrant, a monthly magazine focused on the Canadian immigrant experience. Noorani is passionate about helping immigrants successfully adapt to their new lives in Canada.

Arrival Survival Canada
Press Release (2008)

April 2008 - The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson came to Canada as a refugee in the 1940?s. "This book is not just information, it is a friend, a guide, and a support. Use it and you'll find that you?ll know more, and be able to do things with confidence."

Oxford University Press announces the publication of Arrival Survival Canada: A Handbook for New Immigrants, as part of its Canadian Newcomer Series.

With 30 real-life immigrant experiences and success stories, Arrival Survival Canada is more than a -how to- book. Arrival Survival Canada prepares new immigrants for their Canadian experience from what to pack before emigrating to opening a bank account, from creating a credit history to understanding Canadian school systems.

Arrival Survival Canada is based on the experiences of the husband and wife team of Naeem 'Nick' and Sabrina Noorani, founder/ publisher of Canadian Immigrant Magazine. Noorani says there was nothing like this available to him when he moved with his family from Dubai in 1998. "It was a difficult transition."
