It is important that you plan ahead and anticipate what your life in Canada is going to cost so that you can avoid a financial emergency. To manage your funds correctly you will need to convert all your monies into Canadian dollars. It is imperative that you do this, as you will need to make a financial projection in order to correctly plan for your time here in Canada.
