On November 21, 2021, I landed in Canada at 7:15 pm. My first step was to go directly to the immigration office to finish processing my papers to enter the country. After this was finished, my wife and I decided to go home, but when the front door opened a blast of air hit me, “Oh my goodness, it was so cold!”
The next day was even more amazing! Seeing snow for the first time in my whole life was awesome for me.
Another first impression of Canada is how organized this country is. It is not like my country, the Dominican Republic, where people have to organize everything for themselves as best as they can.
I got a lot of experience in my last nine months, and I’m very happy to live in Canada now.
