Hi, I’m Vikram.
I recently moved from an H1B in Silicon Valley to a PR in Toronto. I love California and my life there but I decided to prioritize being free over all else. I initially didn’t know much about Toronto or Canadian PR so I had to do a ton of research. It did help that I had friends who had moved there but Canada does a bad job of marketing itself.
We have now lived here for close to a year and love our life in Toronto. We even have friends who have also moved here from places like Singapore and California, And love it too.
When people I worked with back in the valley started asking about my move and Toronto I decided to write it all down. This few weeks of writing turned into the MOV North website which subsequently went viral on Linkedin. I understood that people would have questions so I invited people to ask me anything. I wasn’t prepared for the avalanche my Email, Twiiter and Linkedin inboxs are flooded. Clearly a lot of the tech world is interested in Canada.
Launching the MOV North Network (forums) is my way of helping answer everyone’s questions and also building a like minded community to help with everything from the PR application, the move and life and jobs in Toronto when you get here.
Thanks for helping I promise it will create value for everyone. And feel free to introduce yourself below.
