MIGRATING TO CANADA
 
Canada is one of the most developed and advanced countries in the world. The United Nations has consistently ranked Canada as the best place to live and work in the world i.e. for overall quality of life. It also has a long tradition of welcoming migrants. Canada received between 2,45,000 to 2,60,000 immigrants per year.
 
HISTORY
 
Canada is a land of many cultures. It has been said that Canada is a “nation of immigrants”, because all Canadians- except the Aboriginal People immigrated to Canada. Before the French and the English came to Canada there were groups of First People in every region. Distinct nations of Indians lived on the East Coast, in the Central area, on the Plains and on the West Coast. The Inuit lived in the North. The First People in Canada developed unique cultures based on where and how each group lived. The British and the French were the first two European groups to move here in large numbers.
 
Canada was created in 1867 when Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick joined together. Every year July 1 is celebrated as Canada Day. The name Canada has come from the word “Kanata” in the language of the Huron-Iroquois Indians, which means a village or settlement. Today, Canada is home to immigrants from every part of the world. Majority of the immigrants are Asians, Africans, South Americans and Central Americans. One out of every four people in Canada comes from an ethnic background other than English or French.
 
EDUCATION
 
Canada has excellent and fully funded public and independent schools and a network of acclaimed private schools. Education is a provincial responsibility under the Canadian constitution which means there are significant differences between the education systems of the different provinces. However, standards across the country are uniformly high.
 
HEALTH CARE
 
Canada’s health system is the responsibility of the provincial governments but the federal government also contributes funds. The health system is funded through taxes and residents don’t have to "pay" directly for most health care services. Access to healthcare is guaranteed to all, however, most provinces will not cover newly landed migrants for the first three months, during which time private insurance should be taken.

GOVERNMENT IN CANADA
 
How is Canada governed?
 
Canada is a federation. The federal system of government means that powers and responsibilities are divided between the federal government and the 10 Canadian provincial governments. Canada also has territorial jurisdiction in the far north of the country. The federal government includes the Prime Minister and Cabinet. Government members are members of Parliament. The Parliament buildings are located in Ottawa. The laws passed in Parliament are implemented by different federal departments.
 
What role does the Queen play?
 
Queen Elizabeth II is Canada’s official head of State. She is represented in this country by the Governor General at the federal level and the Lieutenant Governors at the provincial level. All federal legislation must receive the assent of the Governor General, within the parameters of the Canadian Constitution. This is what makes Canada a constitutional monarchy.

CURRENCY
 
THE EXCHANGE RATE FROM GBP TO CANADIAN DOLLARS IS APPROXIMATELY 1.57 ALTHOUGH THIS DOES FLUCTUATE ON A DAILY BASIS. CANADIAN CURRENCY IS BASED ON DOLLARS AND CENTS. U.S. CURRENCY IS USUALLY ACCEPTED THROUGHOUT CANADA, BUT TO AVOID EXCHANGE PROBLEMS IT IS PREFERABLE TO USE CANADIAN DOLLARS. PAPER CURRENCY COMES IN DENOMINATIONS OF FIVE (BLUE), 10 (PURPLE), 20 (GREEN) AND 50 (RED). THE BROWN C$100.00 BILL AND LARGER BILLS ARE LESS COMMON AND CAN BE DIFFICULT TO CHANGE. CANADIAN COINS COME IN DENOMINATIONS OF ONE (PENNY), FIVE (NICKEL), 10 (DIME) AND 25 (QUARTER) CENT PIECES. THERE ARE ALSO THE GOLD C$1.00 (LOONIE) AND C$2.00 (TOONIE) PIECES. THE GOLD-COLOURED LOONIE FEATURES THE LOON, A COMMON CANADIAN WATER BIRD, WHILE THE TWO- TONED TOONIE IS DECORATE WITH A POLAR BEAR.
 
BANKING
 
BANKING HOURS IN CANADA ARE 10 AM TO 3 PM MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, WITH EXTENDED HOURS IN SOME LOCATIONS. THE ATM CARDS OF CERTAIN U.S. BANKS CONNECT DIRECTLY WITH CANADIAN BANKS (CHASE AND ROYAL BANKS) VIA THE PLUS SYSTEM. CANADA ALSO USES CHECKING AND SAVINGS ACCOUNTS.
 
CHECKING ACCOUNTS
 
A CHECKING ACCOUNT ALLOWS YOU TO WRITE CHECKS AGAINST FUNDS YOU HAVE IN THE BANK. CARRYING CASH CAN ALSO BE DANGEROUS AND IT DOESN'T LEAVE AS MUCH EVIDENCE BEHIND TO PROVE YOUR PAYMENT IF THERE'S A DISPUTE. ANOTHER BENEFIT IS THAT YOU CAN DEPOSIT YOUR PAY CHECK OR ANY OTHER CHECKS OR CASH DIRECTLY INTO YOUR ACCOUNT AS OPPOSED TO GOING TO SOMEONE ELSE'S BANK OR A CHECK CASHING OUTFIT (WHICH CHARGES A FEE) TO GET YOUR CASH. IT'S BEST TO CHANGE MONEY AT COMPANIES SUCH AS THOMAS COOK, WHICH SPECIALISES IN INTERNATIONAL TRANSACTIONS. IF YOU CAN'T FIND A MONEY EXCHANGE OFFICE OR BOOTH, TRY A BANK. AMERICAN EXPRESS AND THOMAS COOK ARE THE BEST TRAVELLERS CHEQUES TO HAVE, AND YOU SHOULD MAKE SURE THEY ARE EITHER IN US OR CANADIAN DOLLAR DENOMINATIONS.
 
CHECKS AND CREDIT CARDS
 
CREDIT CARDS ARE WIDELY ACCEPTED, ESPECIALLY VISA, MASTERCARD AND AMERICAN EXPRESS. ABMS (ATMS) ARE COMMON THROUGHOUT CANADA, WITH THE INTERAC SYSTEM THE QUICKEST AND MOST CONVENIENT WAY TO REPLENISH CASH. MOST US CREDIT CARDS ARE HONOURED IN CANADA, BUT THOSE COMING FROM THE US SHOULD CHECK WITH THEIR HOME BANK BEFORE LEAVING.
 
INSURANCE
 
CANADIAN HOSPITAL AND MEDICAL SERVICES ARE EXCELLENT. WE RECOMMEND THAT VISITORS TO CANADA OBTAIN TRAVELLER'S HEALTH INSURANCE BEFORE LEAVING THEIR COUNTRY BECAUSE HEALTH INSURANCE PLANS OFTEN DO NOT EXTEND COVERAGE FOR SERVICES RECEIVED OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE. VISITORS TAKING PRESCRIPTION MEDICINE SHOULD BRING A COPY OF THE PRESCRIPTION, IN CASE IT NEEDS TO BE RENEWED BY A DOCTOR IN CANADA.
 
TAXES
 
THE GOODS AND SERVICES TAX (GST) IS 7 PER CENT ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND MOST PROVINCES HAVE A PROVINCIAL TAX RATE AS WELL. INCOME TAX RATES VARY FROM PROVINCE TO PROVINCE. CANADIAN RESIDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO PAY TAX ON ANY INCOME WORLD-WIDE. RETIREMENT PENSION FUNDS ARE NOT TAXED. IF YOU ARE CONSIDERED A NON-RESIDENT YOU ARE STILL REQUIRED TO PAY TAX ON YOUR CANADIAN INCOME. YOU ARE A RESIDENT IF YOU HAVE SPENT 183 DAYS OR MORE IN A CALENDAR YEAR IN CANADA, REGARDLESS OF WHERE THE PERMANENT RESIDENCE IS.

IF YOU ARRIVE AT ONE OF CANADA'S MAJOR AIRPORTS, YOU WILL BE GIVEN A BOOKLET CALLED "WELCOME TO CANADA: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW". IT HAS INFORMATION ON MOST ASPECTS OF LIFE IN CANADA. IT ALSO PROVIDES ADDRESSES AND TELEPHONE NUMBERS FOR: IMMIGRANT-SERVING ORGANIZATIONS ACROSS CANADA; LANGUAGE TRAINING ASSESSMENT CENTRES (WHICH HELP ELIGIBLE ADULT NEWCOMERS FIND FREE LANGUAGE CLASSES); USEFUL FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT OFFICES. IF YOU ARRIVE IN TORONTO, MONTRÉAL OR VANCOUVER, YOU WILL FIND IMMIGRANT RECEPTION SERVICES IN THE AIRPORT. THESE SERVICES ARE RUN BY IMMIGRANT-SERVING ORGANIZATIONS. THEY HELP NEWCOMERS GET THE INFORMATION AND SERVICES THEY NEED, AND THIS HELP IS OFTEN AVAILABLE IN SEVERAL LANGUAGES. IN MONTRÉAL, THE MINISTÈRE DES RELATIONS AVEC LES CITOYENS ET DE L'IMMIGRATION RUNS THIS SERVICE.
 
CANADIAN LAWS YOU SHOULD KNOW
 
IT IS ILLEGAL TO DRIVE WITHOUT A DRIVER'S LICENSE, REGISTRATION AND INSURANCE. IT IS ILLEGAL TO DRIVE IF YOU HAVE BEEN DRINKING ALCOHOL.

THE DRIVER AND ALL PASSENGERS MUST WEAR SEAT BELTS AT ALL TIMES WHEN DRIVING IN CANADA.

DEPENDING ON WHICH PART OF CANADA YOU LIVE IN, YOU MUST BE EITHER 18 OR 19 YEARS OLD TO BUY OR DRINK ALCOHOL IN ANY FORM.

IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO HIT YOUR SPOUSE OR CHILDREN, EITHER IN THE HOME OR IN PUBLIC.

IT IS ILLEGAL TO USE, BUY OR SELL MARIJUANA, HEROIN, COCAINE AND OTHER ADDICTIVE DRUGS.

IT IS ILLEGAL TO MAKE ANY KIND OF SEXUAL REMARKS OR ADVANCES IF THE OTHER PERSON DOES NOT LIKE THEM.

HOTEL-SCHOOL SENAC INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 2014
 
Hotel-school Senac São Paulo is an educational center of reference that develops people and organizations for the hospitality segment, acting by means of the integration of a pedagogic model and its own hotels with commercial operation of excellence.
 
From the perspective of providing students with professional practice and experience – as differentials in the knowledge-building process – by means of real activities in work posts, the hotel-school is synonymous of a pedagogical company.
 
At the hotel-school, where knowledge is communicated and operated, students approach professional reality with the aim of developing their capacity for analysis, to understand and deal with unforeseen events, teamwork, quality and ethics.
 
The experience enables students to detect real problems and to seek adequate, original, creative solutions that are suitable for the situation in which they are employed. The study, performed by means of cases, reports, experiences and examples, is an intentional, organized, problem-solving oriented act. It also involves providing the opportunity for reflection about the professional attitude in different learning spaces, improving behavioral aspects that contribute toward professional education.
 
In this manner, in the hotel-school environment, student, teacher and employees share knowledge, experience the potentialities and the weak points of the hotel activity, favoring and strengthening new teaching-learning comprehension. Students become employees and employee students, acquiring and thus disseminating new ways of thinking, doing and acting, in an environment where guests’ peculiarities make the process challenging.
