There’s a well-worn path from New York to Toronto, Canada, where the air is colder, the people a bit heartier, and the healthcare affordable-r. 

Toronto is a thriving city and the fifth most populous in North America, rich in culture and history. The picturesque capital of Ontario, Toronto is a bustling hub of restaurants (over eight thouand of them!), film production (North America'sthird largest venue), and loyal residents. Case in pointThe Toronto Maple Leafs haven’t won a Stanley Cup since 1967. Yet tickets are consistently sold out.

No wonder people want to move to Canada.

As the world becomes smaller and business opportunities expand into the Great North, New Yorkers are looking for advice on how best to get from here to there.

Here are a few key factors to consider when moving from New York to Canada ensure a smooth move:

Moving to Canada is not considered an “International Move” in the traditional sense. Because items can be shipped via land, moving companies consider this job out of state, rather than out of country.

The best way to move through customs is to meet the moving van at the nearest customs office to the delivery address with your paperwork-your passport and working papers-to present to customs officials.
