I had the chance to meet a couple new PR’s over the last few days. One of them was engaged with the Movnorth site. Considering the extreme cold (unusual) that hit the west cost for a couple weeks last month I was quite interested to know what their opinions of Toronto.
On the whole they seem to be enjoying life here and are quite relieved to be free of the stresses of H1B. One of them has just got a job with a tech. company downtown and was regretting not taking my advice to live in the downtown core. The other person still works remotely for his US employer and is also exploring options locally. I really enjoyed meeting them and plan to try and meet other expats moving here more often.
I also met a few Canadians who have recently moved back to Toronto after many years in the US on TN visa’s. I was surprised to know they found the site quite useful with their search for tech jobs here. Feel free to ask me anything or post your own thoughts I thought we should have some more informal random threads on here.
