This workbook is about you, the brave ones who are willing to take a risk to change your life and the life of those around you by starting a new life in the amazing and beloved country of Canada.

By explaining the immigration journey and the phases of integration into a new community and by touching on the symptoms and feelings that can be experienced at each stage, specific recommendations to combat paralysis naturally emerge, helping newcomers overcome roadblocks on the path to success.

This book is based on Merling’s own experience as well as on known change management theories. The intent of this workbook is to provide practical support for a successful transition through each phase of the “Curve of Change.”
