Paul KuruczAbout Paul

I love helping people feel more excited and confident about their move back to Canada! Over the last 11 years I have advised and supported over 600 individuals and families, answering their questions about returning to Canada, helping them feel good about their move, and providing resources and contacts they needed.

As well as my experience helping individuals and families return to Canada, I am a Canadian Business Professor, career advisor for new immigrant professionals, former expatriate, and parent of children who have lived overseas (one who was born there!).

And I have done the journey of returning home to Canada...twice. 

I was born and raised in the Toronto area, educated at The University of Western Ontario, taught and managed for 6-1/2 years in Dubai, traveled widely around the world, and currently live in British Columbia. Most recently I travelled for 2-1/2 months in Central America, renewing and refreshing my understanding of what it is like to return to Canada. Having seen so many different aspects of life in Canada and abroad, I can help you ask the right questions so that you can transition easily and smoothly back into life in Canada.

"I care that your new life in Canada starts with ease, confidence and joy!"

"Just a quick update.  Crossed into Canada Wednesday morning. No issues at all.  Border agents just wanted to help. Thank you."

- A happy client - March 2016

"Your inputs throughout this process have been invaluable, both for concrete advice and just plain reassurance."

- A happy client - January 2016

"Just a note to thank you for your input and advice re our move back to Canada after being away for almost 40 years!!! ... We came to [the] CBSA station at Blaine WA and the process was real simple and easy. We had the B-4 paperwork for our household effects to follow plus the two cars and received the stamps. In less than 20 minutes we were on our way to the ferry. Thanks again for all you tips and advice. "

- A happy client - October 2015

"Your web site and resources were very worthwhile and your quick responses to all my questions calmed my nerves. It's not an easy thing to pack up 22 years of living and move 1000 miles north. It takes a lot of planning, research, scheduling, packing and asking a LOT of questions.

So, thanks once again Paul.   I'm glad I'm back home with my family and am actually looking forward to my first winter
in 22 years !!!!!!!!!!"

- A happy client - August 2015

"Just to update you - we landed and sailed through customs! So thank you so much for all of your advice. Essentially, given we'd itemised and had printouts of every item, including serial numbers, they were overjoyed. Did not even care that valuations were not included (my husband forgot to print up that version).

No questions were asked of our accommodation, job postings, or otherwise. It was a thoroughly pleasant experience (unlike a number I've had coming through as a non-resident...!).

Hopefully we shouldn't have any further queries, but regardless, this is to say thank you for everything. Your advisory has been so incredibly helpful and saved us considerable time and removed room for error.

- A happy client, July 2014

"Thank you for the very thorough and detailed reply to my questions as your response and information is very helpful. I really appreciate you taking the time to write that all out for me. Your point on how Vancouver has just become "bigger" and "complicated" is good to know and definitely we need to check things out and scout out a good area that meets our needs..."

"We just wanted to say a BIG Thank You for your site and it's excellent advice. We just moved (2 days ago!) from Dublin, Ireland to Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Customs officers at the airport were well impressed with our paperwork.

Thank you for your advice. We had everything in order, including our B4 and shipping forms. It was a breeze to go through customs at the airport and then at the Harbour office."

- June 2012. I love these emails and want to earn one from you!
