You must submit one of these documents during registration as proof of eligibility.
However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Planning for Canada has moved all in-person sessions to online until further notice.
Please fill out the online registration form.
During registration, you will be prompted to select a Group Orientation (GO) session, as well as a Personalized Planning Session (PPS), from a list of possible options and dates. Once you have completed your registration, you will receive an email confirming the date of your chosen sessions. We will contact you closer to the session dates with a reminder and with details on how to access the GO and PPS.
The in-person GO lasts 7 hours while the online version has two options:
All versions of the GO cover the same content, just in varying amount of detail.
Our team will contact you after registration and provide you with further instructions for joining the session closer to the GO date.
During the PPS, you will be connected to expert in-Canada advisors based on your destination of choice and professional career goals. These advisors provide free pre-arrival guidance to help you research and implement aspects of your Action Plan (AP). In addition to answering specific questions and offering additional support, they can connect you with other post-arrival organizations in your city/town of destination.
After registration, you should have received an email confirming your registration, a PfC client number and an email address to contact the PfC regional office assigned to your file for further enquiries. Please directly contact the regional office should you have any questions about your sessions.
Atlantic Immigration Pilot program applicants are also eligible for Planning for Canada services.
During registration, you will be asked to select an upcoming Group Orientation (GO) session and a Personalized Planning Session (PPS). At the end of the PPS, which takes place after the GO, you, your spouse and your adult dependent will receive individual Action Plans (AP). The AP is the settlement plan that you will need to send to your employer as proof that you and your family’s settlement needs have been assessed.
