First Days

No matter where you plan to live, work or study in Ontario, you will probably arrive at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport. Basic information is available at this airport. Look for the Immigrant Reception and Information Services (IRIS) booth.

A public library may have information and services to help you settle, learn English or French, or find work. Visit Toronto's public library website for information about the many services offered. Find a library near you by using the Ontario Public Libraries directory.
