Hi folks. Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far!
So my husband and I found out the other day that he’s been accepted for a job in Calgary, Canada.
Ever since spending a year travelling in Asia about 10 years ago we always knew we didn’t want to stay in the UK- and despite having never been I’ve always liked the idea of Canada.
So my husband applied for a job at Christmas that fit in perfectly with the research he has been doing for his PhD. So it’s the perfect next step for him- so I couldn’t be happier for him!!
I’m also very excited for us!! I have worked solidly for the last 9 years so he could do his PhD etc with no worries about finances. So now we’re excited that he’s now going to be able to support us on his own and I can maybe begin to find what I want to do in Canada!
The move is in September- so we’ve got 6 months to sort our life out.
But I was wondering whether anyone else had done anything like this? Or know of anyone who has and how you/they went about it? any tips etc?
Looks like I’ll have to get rid of my Folksy shop then too which is sad. May well still use the forum though- love the community on here.
I have done a boat load of research on the place itself- but how you go about actually emigrating I have no idea! He’ll be speaking with the HR department next week so hopefully they’re able to provide us with plenty info. But it’s quite a daunting task…despite it being exciting!!
