In 2016, I fell in love with a tanned, carefree Canadian whilst travelling through Thailand. Cue an unexpected move across the world: From a crowded English city to a new lake life in rural Ontario…
I quickly realised that building a new life in Canada comes with a 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 real experiences and advice so that I could be one step ahead and stop drowning in facebook groups, vague webinars and blog posts.
So I created one! I started hosting virtual and in-person socials so that I could meet other newcomers. I created the New to Canada podcast where I interview internationals from all over the world who have moved here. All with the goal of showing how wonderfully diverse Canada is and proving that we are NOT alone.
I used to think I’d never feel happy in Canada – now I can’t imagine my life spent anywhere else.
All I had to do was discover my community.
I’m really looking forward to helping you find your home here in Canada. It is such a special place with endless opportunities to offer. Let’s tap into them together!
It is all worth it in the end ❤️
