How to Make Your Relocation Run Smoothly

October 17, 2022

Whether you are relocating for professional opportunities, being prepared for the move can make the transition much less stressful.

Here are some tips to keep in mind that will make your relocation go more smoothly.

Consider a Relocation Package

If you are moving for work, your company may have a relocation package which can be a big help. These packages may include temporary housing, a city orientation, education, government registration, health care, moving services and other services to help you get settled in. These services can even help you to set up things such as car insurance, banking, cable and television providers and more. It really helps to have support on your side when you are undergoing a relocation.

Orient Yourself With The City

One of the first steps will be to get yourself oriented in your new home. Many relocation packages will include a city orientation which will give you an overview of the city and help you to get your bearings. You’ll learn about how the city is laid out, how public transport works and where important amenities are located. This will also help you to determine where in the city you want to base yourself. You can figure out the best location that is close to schools, shopping malls and your place of work, while still within your price range.relocation

Fill Out The Required Government Registration and Immigration Forms

If you are relocating to another country you will need to go through the immigration process. This will require a lot of official documents, such as birth certificates, work permits and other legal paperwork.  If documents need to be authenticated, it is easier to arrange this before moving. A relocation service can also assist with organizing this documentation and making sure every box is ticked.

Explore A Temporary Housing Solution

Finding the right place to live before you move to a new country can be difficult. You may need to base yourself somewhere for the short term while you do your research and shop around for a home. Temporary housing for relocations, such as the apartments offered by DelSuites, is very convenient and much more economical than a hotel. Look for a short-stay property near your place of work to save time.

Consider Your Proximity To HealthcareRelocation

It’s also very important to think about healthcare and how you will access it in your new location. Will you be covered by the health insurance provided by your employer? You should also register with a dentist and a doctor near where you live – before you fall ill.

Find School/Education Services

If you are travelling with children you’ll also want to consider where they will be going to school. Do some research into the schools in the area to determine which one will be the best fit for their educational needs.

Take the Front Seat for Toronto Sports

April 12, 2022

Play ball! Sports have come back to Toronto after two years of pandemic limits, and fans are itching to get into the seats. With most major Toronto sports venues just blocks from DelSuites locations, you’re in a winning spot to catch a game.

So if you’re a sports fan visiting Toronto, here are the best games you can catch this spring and summer: both major-league and underground.

Baseball: The Toronto Blue Jays

The Jays haven’t played at home since the COVID-19 pandemic started, so excitement for the 2022 season is high. With a homegrown lineup full of 2021 All-Stars—and a pitching staff that’s finally got itself right—a day at the ballpark is going to crackle this year.

The Rogers Centre is literal steps from Element and Icon—three minutes’ walk down the block!—and a short walk from 10 York and 300 Front Street West. Tickets can range from $20 a seat in the nosebleeds to significantly more at the luxurious, reservations-only TD Clubhouse behind home plate: complete with buffet, padded seats, and concierge service.

Toronto’s ballpark food can be much more interesting than the usual hot dogs and fries—although the traditional eats are all there. There’s lots of local beer and cider available, and you can bring your own snacks as long as they’re wrapped well.

Opening day is April 8th, and games stretch into October.

Basketball: The Toronto Raptors

In 2019 the Raptors took the NBA championship, and nobody in Toronto will ever let you forget it. It’s a great reason to check out Canada’s only NBA team: the vibe is fun, competitive, and fierce.

The Raptors play out of Scotiabank Arena, just around the corner from 10 York and a short walk from Qwest, Element, Icon, and 300 Front Street West. It’s also connected to Toronto’s underground PATH Network, so it’s easy to get to the arena and stay dry on a rainy day.

Raptors tickets are in demand, and even modest seats will put you back about $90 after fees, but you’re getting an experience, not just a game. There’s a huge variety of concessions at Scotiabank Arena: sandwiches, hot dogs, poutine, and drinks feature. But you can also get sushi, premium rum and vodka, and high-end restaurant dining while you watch the shot clock.

The regular season goes into April, and tickets are still available.

Hockey: The Toronto Maple Leafs, the Toronto Marlies, and the Toronto Six

NHL tickets are a splurge for most people, but a night at the Scotiabank Arena watching the Leafs is well worth the price. And with the regular season running into April, there’s still time to catch pro league hockey.

But for hockey fans who need something a little more affordable—or like a different challenge—there’s the AHL Toronto Marlies. The Leafs’ AHL development team plays out of Exhibition Place’s Coca-Cola Coliseum, a 10-minute trip by car or transit from our Qwest and 10 York locations.

A night out at the Marlies is its own kind of excitement. Not all the passes connect, and not all the shots get blocked—which makes the game a different kind of exciting. The season also stretches from October to April, and you can snag tickets for as little as $25.

If you’re into women’s professional hockey, Toronto’s best-kept hockey secret is its Premier Hockey Federation Team. The two-year-old Toronto Six plays in at York Canlan Sports Arena, in the city’s northwest. Tickets top out at $30 a seat, and with a strong roster, it’s a guaranteed good time.

Soccer: Toronto FC

Toronto isn’t always known as a soccer city, but the fan base for Toronto FC—the city’s Major League Soccer team—are absolute diehards. Toronto FC’s the first—and only—Canadian MLS team, and won the MLS Cup in 2017.

Toronto FC home games are at BMO Field—in the same Exhibition Place complex as the Marlies. It’s a newer venue with a full accessibility policy and barrier-free seating available. Snacks and concessions cater to Toronto’s soccer-loving Italian and Portuguese communities, with panini and hot chicken next to more usual favourites.

Toronto FC plays February through October, making them a great outdoor choice for long summer nights. Tickets range from an easy $28 to premium seats at over $150 each.

Racing: The Honda Indy

If you’re into an entirely different kind of sports—motor sports—Toronto’s also home to a major IndyCar race.

Taking place over the weekend of July 15-17, the almost 40-year-old race is IndyCar’s second-longest street circuit. The track loops around the Exhibition Place complex, and is accessible (ironically!) by TTC and GO Transit.

Ticket prices and catering options are yet to be announced, but should be available by May.


Enjoy the thrill of being steps away from the beating heart of the city: on game day or every day. Call DelSuites at 647-370-3504 or email to find out how we can open Toronto up for you to discover.
