Living in Canada
The second largest country in the world, Canada is a vast expanse situated in the northern part of the North American continent, but only the fourth largest by land area as its expanse is characterised by the most fresh water lakes in the world. It is a highly geologically active area with many earthquakes and potentially active volcanoes occurring there. The seasons are distinct there, and there can be particularly harsh winters in some areas, and warmer summers, although the climates vary across its vast area. It is a highly urbanised nation, with 82% of the population living in medium to large cities; this is understandable due to the harsh conditions at certain times of year. The population is also very diverse, as indigenous peoples remain but British and French colonisation has also resulted in European influence; as such its official languages are English and French. Despite this, multiculturalism is very important to the Canadian constitution and its equality and inclusiveness is recognised as a huge achievement. Canada also has strong national symbols, including the maple leaf in its flag, as well as the beaver and more recently the totem pole, originating from its indigenous cultures. Economically, it is the tenth largest in the world and is a top ten world trading nation with a highly globalised and mixed economy. Its main export is petroleum and crude oils, but manufacturing, mining and service sectors are also important for the economy.

What are the shipping methods for sending items to Canada?
Shipping to Canada via Air Freight
If you need your belongings in Canada in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions internationally. Shipping via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for Canada Shipping is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical for larger loads such as an entire home.
If you are only sending a one bedroom flat, some boxes of clothes or a few items of furniture to Canada but you require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. Many Movecorp customers will make use of our air freight to Canada service cooperatively with another method of transportation. Such as sending a small number of items they need as a priority via air freight and everything else they can send via sea freight to cut costs.
Another factor that might influence the cost of your Shipping to Canada via air freight is what happens with your goods upon their arrival in Canada. You can choose to collect your goods at the airport yourself, or you can request that diligent moving teams deliver your goods to the kerbside of your new home.
Shipping to Canada via Sea Freight
For Shipping to Canada, sea freight is one of the most favoured transport methods due to its cost-effectiveness and ease for our clients. Shipping to Canada via sea freight can sometimes be a slow process, therefore we advise that you allow ample time for your delivery.
Shared container load is the ideal Shipping to Canada choice if you have a small consignment such as a one bedroom flat, a studio apartment or a small office space. All of your goods and furnishings will be wrapped, packed and loaded onto a shared shipping container to Canada and you will only pay for the space this baggage occupies.
Dedicated container load is the recommended Canada Shipping method if you are sending an entire home load or a large commercial office space. You will pay to receive the sole use of a 20ft or 40ft shipping container. A 20ft container will fit a three-bedroom home comfortably and 40ft is sufficient space if you want to send a vehicle amongst other goods.
