Howzit is a grouping of Saffa and Canadian Business Entrepreneurs who assist potential immigrants  with their journey into Canada.

Our collective experience has enabled us to develop a platform that helps families to better understand the journey. We appreciate the level of stress the immigration decision places on family as well as the need to settle in and start enjoying your new chosen country.

We’ve been there, we’ve navigated the very challenges you face and are well equipped to help you land with peace of mind, ready to build the foundations of your new life in Canada. We are passionate about sharing those experiences, helping you to turn your decision into a true adventure to look forward to! Let us offer our expertise, working collaboratively with you to successfully complete your journey.


Taking the first steps – Knowing whether you’re eligible, finding out the difference between the different nomination programs (e.g. PNP, OINP, etc).  Let’s chat about your career opportunities and practical tips.  Looking to do a LookSeeDecide (LSD) trip to find out if Toronto is for you? Find the best info from the professionals.


We discuss schooling, social events and life in general.  Understand the different schooling systems, explain property and mortgage options.

Settle in and make your life in Canada an adventure!


Once you are settled, ensuring your financial future is successful and your retirement is stress free.

Want to know what to do with your retirement annuities? How to open a bank account.  How to financially emigrate.  Let our team of professional Actuaries and Accountants give you qualified insight to do it right the first time.


Find all the services that you will require to settle and call Canada home. We have a list of home-based businesses, corporations and professional institutions. They all have one thing in common, to service and help each individual that crosses paths at Howzit. To build and serve in the new country they now call home.

Support them, because your support will make all the difference to them.
