Smile Looking for Expat Stay At Home Mums in the Vancouver area!

Hi,

My husband, myself and our 21 month old little boy recently moved to Vancouver from Alberta. My husband is Canadian, but I am English and have been away from the UK now for 6 years.

Since we've only been here for a few weeks and I haven't really met anybody yet - I was hoping that this method would work!

I'm a stay at home mum to our son - and it would be great to meet any other expats who are in the same situation - especially if they have little ones under the age of three.

So please - send me a message if you would like to make a new friend in a similar position and have your little one make a new friend too!

Thanks!

D

Welcome to BE,

You will need to make a couple more posts to enable the private messaging system.


Good Luck, and keep an eye out for local expat meetups. There are a few vancouver specific groups out there on the interweb too I think.

Hi,

Mrs IainMc here. I'm not a stay at home Mum (just returned to work 4 days a week) but may be able to help direct you to good community resources and groups where you may be able to meet people. Would also be very happy to meet up as well if you like. We have a 14 month old boy and live on the Westside of Vancouver. We have been here for just over 3 1/2 years and I have made some great friends in the last year through different Mums groups. Where in Vancouver are you based?

Let me know if I can help,

Michelle
