About us

Our story


We are a group of young, dynamic and resourceful French people. We have different backgrounds and previous experiences, and we decided to dedicate our energy to the French-speaking community. We are all volunteers, and we give our time on the side of our jobs.


In 2015, BC Talents from France was initiated. We began as an informal group which became an official non-profit organization in April 2016. Since the beginning we have been building active relationships within the French community to make all of us become stronger.


We are dedicated to our community of newcomers, and professionals willing to invest in their career. We provide advice and guidance with a personalized approach, unique contents, and tools, curated precisely for our community.

For your information, our non-profit organization is entirely run by volunteers and not recognized as a charity by the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA).

Our purpose

We help francophone newcomers from Europe adapt to the Canadian culture and thrive in a challenging environment

We identified specific and crucial needs of the French community. What could newcomers do to understand and overcome the cultural gap to find a qualified job in Vancouver? From this point, thanks to motivated volunteers, we guided and helped French newcomers and professionals to understand the Canadian culture better, adapt their job search and excel in the Canadian work environment.

Our values

We believe that cultural diversity is an asset in business. As immigrants from France, we share similar education and professional rules and standards. Our goal is to continue building the awareness on the multicultural asset in the work environment.


We intend on supporting newcomers by helping them improve their job search techniques. Newcomers often need a local endorsement to make the difference for a BC company. We also provide a great environment to keep on growing and striving in a Canadian context.

Be Accessible

We are always available to help our community. We build free resources and answer your questions through this website and social media.
We organize CONNECTWorking, Face-to-Face, as well as other events to share advice and guide you during your integration.


We strongly believe that our experience and our knowledge of the West Canadian market will make a difference to our community. Along the year, we develop more resources and projects to serve our community in a broader and better way.

Our team

We share a great ambition: to help and mentor all French-speaking newcomers so they can find a qualified job in Vancouver in less than four months and to organize engaging masterclasses. Discover our team members.
