Default 16 days to go! Vancouver Island BC-on our way

We're moving from West Sussex UK to Vancouver Island BC with our 3 dogs, goods and chattels to follow.
Already sorted a rented property and got our fingers crossed to find work, any work to start our new life.
Tony's originally from Jersey, Channel Islands & I grew up a forces brat.
We've both moved around quite alot and are looking forward to settling in beautiful BC!

Hello Lisa and Tony...welcome to BE.

When are you moving? I presume it must be soon if you've already secured a rental property.

We have a large group of lovely expats who post in our Canada Forums...many of them live in the BC area. If you click on this link it will direct you to our main Canada forum. Why don't you pop over there and take a look around?

Please shout out if you require any assistance navigating the forums. The moderators for the Canada forums are Iaink and Christmasoompa...although any mod or admin will be pleased to help you.

Good luck with the move.

Hi Lisa,

Welcome to BE. Get yourself over to our Canada forum and you will find lots of wonderful members there who are great at sharing info and tips. I'm sure you will make lots of friends here.

The best of luck with the big move. Just remember breath and exhale and all will be well.

Sue

What part of the Island are you heading to - we're in the Comox Valley.

I didn't know it's of Tagalog origin though! Learn something new everyday.
Welcome to the neighborhood!

You do learn something new everyday - I had to google to find out what boondock meant!! I obviously fit very well into the area

Hello Andre...welcome to BE.

As this forum is just to welcome new members would you please repost your question in our Canada Forum? You will get a much better response to your question in that forum because more of our regular members post in there. I provided a link to that forum in post #3...just click on it and it will take you directly there.

Give me a shout if you need any help finding your way around the many BE forums. Good luck.
