I have no child, but most of my friend have child,
as to my opinion,
The most tough time for your child would be the first few days after landing if you don't have friend to help you settle down.
If your friend like to help you, that means your child would have a place to stay rest while you going out looking for place to live.
After settle down, every thing will be easy.
According to Canada Law, you should not leave your kid alone at home. Means one people of you couple should stay home with you boy.
And if both of you couple get job offers, you will have to send your kid to day care center or hire someone to take care of it, the expense for child care is expensive here, you wouldn't earn much unless you two get high salary, that's why most of the family only have one adult working, the other stay at home taking care of the child.
It is like heaven for child, but tough for adult.
