      Hi D-girl,

      I moved to Canada from the UK a couple of months ago. I came to Canada on a Temporary Resident Visa which allows you to remain in Canada for a period of six months however you are unable to work or study during this time. I received my Temporary Resident Visa from immigration when I arrived in Canada (The Temporary Resident Visa is a stamp which you receive in your passport from immigration). You will have to explain to the immigration officer why you intend to stay in Canada for a long period of time, for example, travelling for 6 months etc. and explain how you intend to support yourself during that time, for example, how much money you have brought with you. You can then apply for a job whilst within Canada (If you receive an offer the company will apply for a work permit on your behalf as you can not work without one) or alternatively to can apply before you come (again if you receive an offer the company will apply for a work permit and you will then be able to come to Canada on a work visa).

      I hope this helps!

      Good luck!

      High Return on Investment

      ROI (Return on Investment) is one of the most important criteria of most marketing campaigns. For small businesses with low budgets, the marketing ROI needs to be good for it to work. Social marketing is one of the cheapest ways of marketing currently available. And practically all the social media you can use to market your business either costs nothing or costs a very small amount. This low investment means low risk to even the smallest business. Considering that most businesses gain a big pop in visibility after using social networking tools, the advantage is ultimately getting good publicity for free.
