The best app for students when they move to Canada

Moving to a new country brings lots of excitement and challenges at the same time. To make your transition easier to Canada and help you with some of the most required and day-to-day tasks, we have compiled a list of apps and websites. This will not only help you to easily settle down in a very new land but will also help you to effectively organize yourself.

From transportation and budget management to job opportunities and local deals, these tools will be your trusted companions throughout your stay. Let’s explore them one by one –



As an international student, to succeed in the new job market with a lot of competition, networking, and professional development are very important. LinkedIn is a platform that is trusted and used globally for connecting with professionals from all fields. Building a good LinkedIn profile, joining and connecting with people with similar interests, gives you a good opportunity of building and learning from a highly skilled group of people. You might even find internships or job opportunities through this platform. 


Google Maps

An essential app for any traveler or student, Google Maps will be your reliable companion to explore the city. Find directions, discover nearby places, and explore various transit options for efficient navigation. Additionally, it can help you in finding locations in your neighborhood like supermarkets, restaurants, and medical care facilities. 


Transit App 

Navigating public transportation in a new country can be confusing. The transit app helps you to get up-to-date information on bus and train schedules and helps you to plan a trip accordingly. It covers multiple cities across Canada, making your daily commute more manageable.



A famous online marketplace in Canada where you can find a variety of products for sale, rent, or trade is called Kijiji. It’s a great website for finding furniture for your home, discounted textbooks, and even part-time jobs that fit your schedule and skill set. You may connect with locals and other students on Kijiji while also finding inexpensive and good products.



If you’ll be using public transit regularly, especially in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), the PRESTO App is a must-have. It allows you to manage your PRESTO card, load funds, and check your balance conveniently from your smartphone. 



Remitly is a reliable and secure platform for sending money internationally. If you need to receive or send money to your home country or anywhere else, this app offers competitive exchange rates and low transfer fees for your financial transactions. 



Flipp is a fantastic app that bundles digital flyers and deals from various stores in your area. Being a student, it’s essential to save money on groceries, school supplies, and other essentials to effectively manage your budget. By using Flipp, you get notified of all the latest discounts and offers to plan and shop wisely. 



Living with roommates and sharing expenses can be complex. Splitwise makes it easy by allowing you to track shared expenses, split bills, and settle debts with ease. This app ensures fairness and transparency in your financial dealings with friends and housemates, leaving you free of all the manual tracking hassle.


Although these websites and applications can be very beneficial, it’s important to read their terms and conditions before using them. Make sure you are aware of any potential expenses related to their services as well as how your data will be handled.
