You Can Continue Getting Social Benefits

As a Canadian citizen, you continue to get basic healthcare and public school education free of charge. You can also continue to access other social services offered by the Government of Canada, for example, employment insurance or student government loans.

If you have a Social Insurance Number (which allows you to work in Canada) you can work in Canada.
