Hi! I’m Kate – The founder of the Newcomer Collective.

In 2016, I fell in love with a tanned carefree Canadian whilst travelling through Thailand. Cue an unexpected move across the world: From crowded England to a new life in rural Ontario…

I quickly realised that building a new life in Canada is a constant rollercoaster of ups and downs. Throw in a brutal Canadian winter season and you can start to feel isolated and overwhelmed. I craved a place to connect with others who were going through the same struggles as me. I wanted to hear other people’s experiences and advice so that I could be one step ahead.

So I created one! The goal of this newcomer story portal is to show that you are NOT alone.

By sharing our experiences and achievements with each other, it’s clear how much potential we have in Canada. We are a pretty inspirational bunch.

I’m so glad you’re here.
