I am new on this forum but I think it is necessary I post this piece beacuse I am finding it real hard to get a place to live when I arrive Canada at the end of July.

I am from Ghana and I would be coming to Ontario soon. I have been trying to get a place but die to the online scam that emanates from W.Africa everyday, I have not been lucky with my search.

Pls can anyone reccommend a site where I can get a room to rent; I would not mind if anyone can rent a room to me in his/her home.

Many thanks,

Try reading the online newspaper(s) of your destination city.

If your destination is Toronto, perhaps consider staying in a motel for a couple of days while you find a room that you can actually view before renting.

Try Craigslist for sure. However, trying to secure an apartment before you actually arrive in Canada is difficult unless you have someone to pay some sort of deposit for you.
If you go to big cities, I'd advise you stay in the temporary housing (many for new immigrants) for a week or two while looking for a permanent place. These houses are affordable, some are at 25-30 dollars a night. The money is more worth spent than getting a room before you actually see it and then have to live it in for a long time.
