This article will provide you with all the information of everything that you need to do, split into before your departure to Canada, on the day of your departure, and after your arrival.
If you directly apply at the airport of your arrival in Canada, you need to apply for an eTA online before you leave Japan. （You don’t need it if you already have a letter of acknowledgement from the embassy)
Biometrics is used to identify the identity of an individual.
Those that apply for a Work Permit at the airport are to go through Biometrics after they receive their Work Permit.
Those that have applied for the Work Permit in advance at the embassy should get a letter to go through Biometrics and to complete Biometrics before leaving Japan.
Those coming to Canada as tourists do not need it.
You are required to have a SIN if you will be working at a Canadian company and to file your tax. You may apply for a SIN at an institution called Service Canada. You can either go directly in person or apply by mail.
Here is how you apply. You can also find where Services Canada offices are located from this link.
Many public health services are available to you. Eligibility, how to apply, and monthly fees vary according to the province.
