Never mind thesorting and packing – even without considering all that, there are
things that need to be moved that you can’t do yourself. When it
comes to cable, electricity, and other services, what you need is a
handy checklist to make sure you’ve got all the bases covered. Starting four to six
weeks from your move date should allow you sufficient time to get
your records updated.
1. Let Canada Post
know you are moving by scheduling your mail to be forwarded from your
move date. That will ensure that you’ll be covered for anything you

banks, including any RRSPs, mutual funds, or investment accounts, and
even your Airmiles card.

during the move.
5. Insurance – car

6. Your doctor and
dentist. If you are moving far away enough that you will be looking
for new medical providers, then you’ll want to make arrangements
for transfer of your files. Don’t forget your Health Card!
7. Don’t forget
your pets – let the vet know about your move.
8. Magazines and any
other material you still get via the good old postal service.
9. Any clubs,
unions, or other organizations that you may belong to.
