Default Hi, Considering a move to Canada

Hi Everyone,

My name is Mike and I found this forum by chance when I was scouring resources via google.

Myself and my girlfriend currently live in Manchester and after a recent trip to Vancouver we are seriously considering a move to Vancouver/Canada.

I thought it best to say Hi here and then enlist the help of the nice folk in the Canada forum as I have so many questions.

Hello Mike and to BE. Now that you've stumbled in "by chance" stay on and enjoy the experience

Yes you're sure to find friendly folks on the Canada forum and make new friends and maybe find groups/communities of your interests even before you get there. Look around other places in here too and keep posting.

Best wishes on your proposed move to Canada.

Cheers

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
