How Serviced Apartments Help Immigrant Families

March 3, 2013

Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. The city welcomes almost 80,000 new immigrants each year. Every one of these families beginning a new life in an often strange and unfamiliar land comes with dreams and hopes of a better and brighter future. Among one of the many issues new immigrant families have to grapple with is where to settle down in their adopted country. Staying in a serviced apartment in Toronto has definite advantages for a new immigrant family.

Deciding on Where to Settle Down

There are many different neighborhoods in Toronto, each one with unique features and characteristics that appeal (or not) to different people. It is not always easy for new families to make a decision about where to reside in their new country. Staying in a short term rental apartment gives you the opportunity to explore these neighborhoods at leisure and discover for yourself the best location for you and your family.

Putting Money into what Matters Most

An extended stay in a regular hotel can become quite expensive very quickly. Staying in a short term rental on the other hand is much more affordable. The money saved can then be used for getting a new apartment or a house when you and your family finally decide where to settle down in your adopted country.

An Important Adjustment

Staying in a serviced apartment feels more like living in a home than staying in a hotel room. There are separate bedrooms and living areas and a kitchen where families can continue to cook their native dishes instead of regularly eating out. This helps immigrants mentally adjust to their new status as members of a community rather than just visitors in a strange land. This is a vital part of their integration into the fabric of the society to which they now belong.
