What should I do when I just arrive in Montreal?

  1. Consult your friends to find out if you should buy a monthly pass, a weekly pass or bus tickets. For more information on public transportation in Montreal please see this post.
  2. Contact your supervisor and sign the contract as soon as possible (if you get any financial aid).
  3. Apply to get your permanent code.
  4. Register and get your student ID card at LB 185 (Have your passport available for identification).

  6. Get your health care card from ISO.
  7. Search for an apartment.
  8. Open a bank account and let Payroll Office (ER building, 5th floor) know your acount info.
  9. Get your Social Insurance Number card at the office related to your address.
