I have previously used the chat service of PrepCan and so far found it immensely helpful. The last time I use it, my queries were solved in just 10-15 minutes. The chat service is extremely prompt and effective. I have seen other pre-arrival services, but PrepCan is far better than the ones I have so far registered to. You guys are doing a wonderful job!

Thank you for all the useful information, tips, and personal experiences you shared. I've learned a lot. Hence, I now feel less anxious about my big move to Canada.

As I enter into the last week before I depart to Canada, I wanted to take a moment to thank PrepCan and Ruwaida for all the services you offered. They were all very useful, and I can now confidently step into Canada being fully aware of what to expect !! Thanks for your webinars which were detailed. I especially enjoyed live examples and the analogies you always provided. I wish you and PrepCan all success.
