Easiest Way to Immigrate to Canada
Canada is clean, friendly, and offers a better quality of life than many countries. But before you can make the move, you’ll have to follow the proper steps. Read this guide with the best advice on how to move to Canada.
Best Places to Live in Canada
A search for any listing of the best places to live in Canada will display a strong preference for the small and medium cities in south-west Ontario. These communities really have the best of both worlds. However, Ontario is not the only destination to consider! There are many excellent options for people planning to move to Canada.
Work Visas in Dubai: What You Need to Know
In our last newsletter, we talked about moving to Dubai. Since there was so much interest, we decided to share this article about work visa options and how to obtain them in Dubai. There is a good amount of paperwork and requirements including the need for a medical check.
Health Insurance in Dubai for Expats and Foreigners
In 2014, the Dubai Health Authority implemented legislation that requires all residents – foreigners and Emirati alike – to have medical insurance. Although this may seem like a daunting task when you are moving to Dubai, don’t worry, there are great plans to choose from, Cigna Healthguard is one excellent option.

What is School the World and How Can You Help?
At International Citizens Group, we have been huge supporters of School the World (STW), www.SchoolTheWorld.org, a non-profit committed to heading off a massive education crisis in the poorest parts of Central America. The program is amazing and the work they do is life-changing.
The major issue: while schools there closed around the same time as in many other places around the world, the students there were only a few weeks into their academic year. The risk for these children is that many would never return to school at all if something was not done.
We are really proud of how School the World has managed this crisis, pivoting to meet the needs of their kids and families with WhatsApp groups to advise parents, virtual support groups for at-risk girls, radio programs with PSAs, lessons, and storytime.
Now STW has a plan to engage students more deeply to avert this drop-out crisis and they need our help. Their plan includes early reader books for the youngest children at home, “last mile” phone tutors to help the children work through learning guides, and low-cost tablets preloaded with books and educational apps.
It is difficult to think of the poorest young children losing more than a year of learning and possibly never returning to school. We are on a mission to help prevent this by raising $5,000 for the cause. You can support the campaign, help educate an underserved population, and give kids hope in two ways:
- Purchase tickets to their virtual, live-streamed Gala on Friday, October 16. You will receive a “party in a box” including a gourmet dinner and fun goodies on the big night!
- Register here: https://schooltheworld.org/2020-gala/
- Not able to make the Gala? You can help by donating through a contribution on my personal fundraising webpage: https://donate.schooltheworld.org/joecronin
Thanks so much for your support.
