Hello Mercy,

Thank you for your question.

Your first step should be to read this article: How does Canada's refugee system work? 

The article gives you information about how to make refugee claims within and outside of Canada, and the rights refugees have. It also shares information about eligibility and links to other relevant resources to help you immigrate to Canada.

The Government of Ontario has also created a tool that you can use to assess your English skills online before your arrive.

In addition, you can use pre-arrival services if you've been approved to immigrate to Canada. These are available for free both online and in-person program. Pre-arrival services can help you get job training and skills, find a job, and access resources like healthcare, housing, etc. 

To find out more about pre-arrival services, please read this article: What are pre-arrival services?

We hope this helps. Team
