The first issue many immigrants encounter when coming to Canada is finding appropriate accommodations. Many individuals end up in hotels that are costly and lack a sense of home. However, recently, there has been a trend of immigrants renting furnished rentals. This trend has been attributed to the cost-effective nature furnished rentals provide. Many comment on the benefits of having their own apartment, especially in the case of children where immigrating can be an extremely taxing experience. Further, furnished rentals typically allow for shorter lease periods which means you do not have to commit to a property for an extended period of time which may delay the process of finding a permanent residence.
