MOVING TO CANADA

All about moving to Toronto, studying at Schulich and exploring the country

In 2019 I moved to Canada to study in the IMBA program at the Schulich School of Business. Relocating has been a journey of many ups and downs that I’ve put together in this section, to offer information, experience, and hope to anyone who is making the decision to move countries.

Read on, for a student’s perspective on life in Canada, working your way into an incredible job and stories from travels and trials in this fair country.

Hi! I’m Nikita Butalia:)

Let’s Stumble Around The World Together

Welcome to Stumbling Around Delhi! I’m Nikita Butalia and you’re about to join my journey of discovery that began around my home city of New Delhi but ended up around the world. A passion for travel and endless wanderlust led to a massive appetite for travel that’s never satiated since. Here’s to inspiration from sunsets, mountain tops and late night city lights. Happy reading!

Instagram post 17883133973524232 Quaint bookstores make me break the “no more books until you’ve read everything on your bookshelf” vow every time. That and $10 off Bill Bryson 😂 Anyone here ever been able to read EVERYTHING on their shelf? Seems like I’ve set myself up for failure 🤪 👀

Instagram post 17923620658891318 Toronto waters ✨ Mad fact we discovered on board the tourist ferry - apparently the Westin at harbour front had a revolving restaurant at the top of the building. Until one day it was struck by lightening and it never moved again 🌩 

Crazy that cities have so much history & life before and after us!

Instagram post 18247163887027117 Without a doubt my fav spot in all of Toronto! 

I’ve loved it since the first time I visited a friend who lives in Etobicoke. It’s in the middle of their neighbourhood 😭♥️ and there’s a green, grassy slope that looks over the water. No crowds, no parking issues (most days) and on one corner a couple swans will pay you a visit 😍 

The water is so easily accessible too. It’s such an underrated, peaceful & beautiful place 🥺

Instagram post 17955530641464677 The one thing I said before driving to Blue Mountain for my birthday was “I’ll do anything as long as it’s not a hike” 

Welllll we hiked. But it was downhill and I loved every bit of it! 

If you’re interested in a mini-hike at Blue Mountain, just take the gondola to the top of the hill and choose the “Cascade” hike (you’ll find it on the map) - it’s downhill and you’d be waking along a stream 🌿
