“The journey to a better life for an immigrant begins with the desire to move from the seemingly unwanted familiar to the sought-after but unfamiliar reality despite the many uncertainties and learnings that lay along the way. My mission is to help you navigate these uncertainties with the right information, resources and communities – ultimately empowering you to thrive in Canada.”
