Moving to Canada 🇨🇦 comes with a rollercoaster of emotional ups & downs…
Sometimes, all you need to feel more settled is to know that

You’re not alone

Meet Your Mentor

Hi there!

My name is Kate and I moved from England to Canada in 2017 after meeting my Canadian fiancé whilst backpacking in Thailand!

After living & working in 5 different countries, I now help support, inspire, and connect internationals living in Canada like you so that we can all navigate through the emotional turmoil that comes with moving abroad and build lives that make us truly happy.

I launched the Newcomer Collective to give us a safe space to share our honest experiences via weekly podcast episodes, as well as meet face-to-face at our lively socials. Best of all? It’s free!

Moving to a new country is anything but easy.
It’s normal to feel isolated.
Anxious about the unknown.
Homesick for the country and family you left behind.
Stressed about building a career or meeting new people.

It’s time to connect with others who are going through the exact same struggles as you, to learn from their experiences, and share the adventure as Canada’s newcomers together!

The New to Canada podcast


The New to Canada podcast is a place for internationals from around the world to share their honest, real-life experience of moving to Canada. I started this show to help you adjust to your big move abroad by sharing the lessons I’ve learnt along the way and introducing you to others who are going through the same challenges that you are facing. Let’s build a life in Canada that you love!
