Our Story

The Founding - 2015

We are a group of young, dynamic, and resourceful French-speaking people living in the city of Vancouver. With different backgrounds, we decided to unite and dedicate our energy to connecting the French-speaking community that came to experience something new in British Columbia. We dedicate our efforts 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.

The Growth - 2016 to 2018

We believe that building and maintaining ongoing relationships makes all of us stronger. Along the years, we have developed resources, projects, and connections to help serve our community, which now consists of 1,500 people and members. Our event, CONNECTWorking, has been running since our creation and features prestigious guest speakers. We have been hosted over 500 people. Our team has been writing curated content like blog articles, guide, webinars, e-books, and more. We extended our support beyond the Canadian border and is now assisting people overseas before they move to Canada.

The Expansion - 2019

This year gives us the opportunity to create our sister brand GTA Talents that will serve the Grand Toronto Area.  More projects will come too.

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 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.
