Are you a French newcomer to Vancouver? Get your Welcome Guide for FREE!

Did you plan everything possible before your arrival? You’re finally here, but feel a bit overwhelmed? Keep calm and read through! Our team of volunteers has created the tool you need to get settled and start your Canadian journey.

First thing first, what should you do during the early days following your arrival? The first thing on your mind might be to find a place to stay. But there are other administrative tasks to take care. We know it’s unpleasant, so we listed everything you will need to do when you arrive, from your Social Insurance Number to open a bank account.

Once you are done with the paperwork, you can start enjoying a bit of the Vancouverite life. But you’re in a new city and you might not know a lot of people. This is the perfect occasion to reach out to our community, whether it’s to meet new faces, get some advice or share your experience.

At some point, you will probably want to find a qualified job in Vancouver. The Welcome Guide will provide you with some critical advice on how to improve your Linkedin profile or how the Canadian recruiting process works. Canadians are very network-oriented. Francophones coming from Europe are often struggling with this part, which is why we have dedicated a whole section in our Welcome Guide to help you build and nurture your network. Keep in mind that the Canadian workplace is very different from what you already know. Our Welcome Guide will put you on the right track to tackle this challenge. You will have to play by the local rules if you want to succeed in your job search and land your dream job!

And, last but not least, you are doing well in Vancouver, but your visa is almost expired... This will happen sooner than you think! We have gathered some ideas to explore in order for you to find the most suitable way to extend your stay according to your immigration purpose.

Our Welcome Guide is full of great tips and testimonies!

You have some questions, we have the answers!
