One of your first needs after you arrive in Canada is a temporary place to stay until you can rent or buy a home. One option is to stay at a hotel or hostel.
Most hotels and hostels have a website with photographs, location, price and a description of the services they offer. You can also use travel guides, forums and other websites to find reviews. Learn more about hotels and hostels by reading the Welcome to Canada guide.
You can also contact an immigrant-serving organization in the city or town where you plan to settle. Ask if temporary housing for newcomers is available and how much it costs.
Refugees will get help finding temporary housing as part of the Resettlement Assistance Program.
The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) is Canada’s national housing agency. You can find information about renting an apartment, buying a house and more by visiting the CMHC section on Housing for Newcomers.
