About the Authors

The authors, Naeem “Nick” and Sabrina Noorani, immigrated to Canada from India via Dubai in 1998. Once here, they were bombarded with questions about Canada from friends and family back home, and other immigrants they methere. This led them to research the answers to these questions and put them together in one handy guide — that became their book Arrival Survival Canada.

Later, they decided to launch and publish a monthly magazine for immigrants called the Canadian Immigrant magazine, which has become the go-to resource for immigrants. The magazine spun into a segment on The Link, a weekly radio show on CBC’s Radio Canada International, where Nick answers questions from people who want to learn more about immigrating to and living in Canada. Nick is a leading voice for the immigrant community, has won numerous awards and recognitions, and is on the boards of several newcomer agencies.
