Moving from Canada to Poland

Moving from Canada to Poland Illustration. Poland on Map.

Are you tired and overwhelmed by the Canadian fast-paced life that never ends? If paying thousands of dollars for education and then moving on to a never-ending career does not sound appealing and you are looking for a change, moving from Canada to Poland might be what you need.

Poland is a country with a diverse collection of unique historical sites, one of which is Auschwitz, the most famous concentration camp of World War II. Moving to Poland from Canada will not only allow you to immerse into a rich culture but give you an opportunity to gain EU citizenship and calmly retire in Europe.

Canada vs. Poland

In this article, we will compare numerous important facets of life in both Canada and Poland to give you a better understanding of the pros and cons of moving to Poland from Canada.

Canada is the second largest country in the world after Russia with 9,984,670 square kilometres of land spread on top of the North American continent. The state has the longest land border with the US in the south and west and is washed by the North Atlantic, North Pacific and Arctic oceans. The capital city of Canada is Ottawa.

Thanks to its size, Сanada has 8 distinct climate regions. In most of the country, the climate is temperate and quite mild. In the northern regions, the climate is mostly subarctic. The average temperature in winter ranges from -28 °C to - 15°C and +21 to +27 in summers.

According to recent statistics, Canada is home to more than 38.5 million people with over 250 ethnic origins or ancestries. Close to 57% of the population claim European origins, including English (6.3 m.), Scottish (4.8 m.), French (4.7 m.), and Irish (4.6 m.). Aboriginal origins makeup 6.2% and 32% identify as Canadians.

The majority of the believing population in Canada identifies as Christians of Catholic, Protestant and Anglican churches. The second largest religious group is Muslims making up over 3.2% of the population, followed by Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and others. There are 2 official languages in Canada: French and English.

Almost 30% of the Canadian population identify themselves as workaholics, although, with quite casual workplaces. On average, Canadians work from 37.5 to 40 hours per week and get to go on 1 or 2 family vacations a year. Thanks to cultural diversity, there are festivals happening all year round, making day-to-day life rather colourful.

Canadians are a polite and welcoming nation. The majority here have moved to Canada over 20 years, a couple of months or days ago, so each understands how is it to be “a new” one.

Education in Canada can be divided into 3 stages: preschool, elementary and secondary education, and higher education. Children of Canadian citizens, PR holders and refugees are eligible to receive free education in public facilities. Only school supplies and some annual fees must be paid.

Canadian higher education is among the best and strongest offered in the world, but also is not the cheapest. Some of the country’s and world’s best universities are located in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver. On average, domestic students pay about$ 6,700 CAD per academic year, while international students pay $29,500 CAD.

The cost of living in Canada is relatively high due to the always-rising real estate market and lack of competition in the business sector. The average rent price in big cities like Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Ottawa ranges from 1,600 - 2,150 CAD for a 1 bedroom and 2,700 - 3,450 for a 3 bedroom.

An individual’s average monthly expense living in Canada is $1,200 CAD (4,300 PLN) without rent. A family of four would spend about $4,300 CAD (14,400 PLN) per month without rent. The average yearly salary in Canada ranges from $48,000 - $55,000 CAD.

Canada is a country of unlimited opportunities and the first one to implement a points-based immigration system. This made it easier and faster for the government to select desirable candidates - qualified professionals. Canada's immigration target is 300,000 people per year, so each gets a chance to try.

Individuals looking to move to Canada from Poland will be evaluated based on multiple criteria prior to becoming a temporary resident and later a PR. You can gain a Canadian passport after 3 to 5 years of living in Canada as a permanent resident.

Children of ex-pats moving from Canada to Poland are eligible for free education in public schools which starts from the age of 6 to 18. However, language proficiency is required.

Education in Poland is on an equal footing with other top-rating universities in Europe, moreover, the tuition is significantly cheaper. Polish citizens, EU/EEA citizens, and PR and Pole Card owners can receive free higher education in Poland. Tuition for International students in public universities will range between $2,230 - $4,180 USD per year.

Poland has affordable prices, quality products and a stable economy. The average salary in Poland after taxes ranges from 4,500 - 5,200 PLN ( $1260 - $1450 CAD ) per month. Warsaw is the most expensive city to live in, the average monthly rent price for a 1 bedroom is about 2,050 - 2,400 PLN ( $573 - $671 CAD). A three-bedroom apartment costs around 3,100 - 3,800 PLN ( $867 - $1060 CAD).

A single person moving from Canada to Poland would spend an average of 2,466 PLN ($693 CAD) excluding rent, about 43% lower than in Canada. A family of four estimated monthly costs are 8,194 PLN ( $2,305 CAD) without rent.

What Clients say About Us

Discipleof Christ

The Hercules moving crew did an amazing, fantastic job in moving my mother's upright piano. The two brothers crew are incredibly strong, expedient, courteous, and professional. The company gave the best quote, the fastest appointment booking, and was the most polite when compared to all the other piano moving companies I called in Toronto and the GTA. I absolutely recommend this company for anyone who needs to have their piano and/or heavy objects moved.

Donald Quan

I used Hercules for a non-piano move for the first time from their Storage Toronto. I expected only the best service from them as I’ve experienced how they treat Concert pianos and they delivered 100%. The time and cost they quoted was exactly what it took. They really know how to quote their services. No surprises....so rare in a moving company. They came over-prepared with blankets, stair coverings, wrappings, mega tape. They were not about to let anything happen to my valuable stuff. Best movers I’ve ever used.....they almost take moving to an art form.

Anastasiya Mamayeva

These guys are amazing. They are fast and reliable. They are reasonably priced compared to other big companies. They moved 3br appt on a very short notice with no extra charge. All my furniture arrived in the same condition as before the move. I would definitely recommend them!

Great moving experience with the best Scarborough movers I have ever met in Toronto. Arrived with a team of 3 guys and moved a 4500sq2 house within 8 hours. Amazing service!

The movers showed up on time and ready to work, they were very efficient and professional. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Best moving company I ever used. Reliable and very efficient. Worry free service. I definitely recommend them to my friends and colleagues.

I was very satisfied with Hercules Moving Company. They made it easy and stress free for us. They arrived on time and packed and professionally covered our furniture to go into storage, since we are in between houses. I was amazed by how they were able to efficiently pack and store a 5 bedroom, 2 living room, office and a gym into a storage unit where they organized everything to fit perfectly. This wasn't an easy job and I was 100% satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone looking for good quality movers. Thanks Hercules Moving company for helping us move!

Donald Quan

Used Hercules for the first time for the move of my very expensive and rare C.Bechstein grand - I was so pleased with their service an demeanour at the baby coddling care they used in handling my pride and joy that I will be using them for all of my piano moves from here on. I highly recommend these Guelph movers. Donald Quan - award winning film composer.

Candice Singlair

These Guelph movers were the nicest movers and so efficient. I highly recommend them to anyone. Even my interior designer complimented them. Thanks Hercules.

I was very happy with Hercules and the way they handled my piano move. After a mixup with the original moving company I hired to move a piano just before Christmas, I contacted Hercules. They were able to schedule me The following Tuesday. Unfortunately the Tuesday became Wednesday, due to an illness with one of the movers. George contacted me on Monday to let me know, rather than Tuesday morning, which I appreciated. The movers arrived within the timeframe I was given and moved the piano both efficiently and professionally. I definitely recommend them they are the best Burlington movers in Simcoe County.
