Congratulations on choosing Calgary (YYC) as your new home. I made the same decision in 2022 and have not regretted it. I know that moving to a new city can be a daunting experience and it's completely normal to feel overwhelmed when there are so many things to figure out.


To help make this move more smooth for you, I decided to make this guide that can
help you with the following:

  1. Accommodation in YYC

  2. Getting Around in YYC

  3. First Things First (Phone Number, SIN, Bank Accounts, Driving License etc.)

  4. Alberta Health Card

  5. Important Resources (Employment, Free Pass, Library etc.)

  6. Getting a job in Calgary

  7. Calgary Newcomers Community

I hope you find this helpful and that your move to YYC (as you will soon start calling it) helps you with all that you want to achieve in life!

Best wishes,
