  1. Laura L.

    My New Life in Vancouver is a unique book by a very talented writer. It is full of helpful and relevant information for newcomers so they can fully embrace living in this beautiful city. It would also be an excellent resource for Immigration Consultants, ESL Teachers, Real Estate Agents, Relocation Consultants, and anyone else who wants to make the most of their life in Vancouver. I highly recommend it!
