Hi, Welcome to Expat in Canada!


We’re Tim and Kamila – a South African and Slovak couple who between the two of us have traveled to over 60 countries before deciding to call Canada home. 

We love the opportunity, diversity, and breathtaking outdoors that Canada has to offer. 

Canada also has some of the friendliest and most welcoming people we have ever come across!



When we arrived in Canada, we didn’t know anyone. All we had was one suitcase, 2 backpacks, an adventurous spirit and a willingness to start a new life.

From our experience, we know exactly what it feels like to start from scratch in a new country and all of the different challenges it entails. 

Challenges such as building a new life, being away from your family and loved ones, finding a new job and a new place to live.

Therefore we would like to share what we have learned to help others make a similar transition easier, cheaper, and more convenient.  

We spend numerous hours researching and vetting out the best tips for life in Canada and try to streamline the most important information we discover in this blog. 

Our journey in Canada started on a working holiday visa.

But as our luck would have it, one of our first Airbnb hosts in Canada was an immigration consultant who opened up our eyes to the possibility of staying in Canada permanently. 

Now that we achieved our permanent residency in Canada, our new goal has become to design a more flexible and financially free lifestyle.

We hope that you will join us on this journey and that information you discover here helps you to thrive in Canada and discover new earning possibilities so that you can do more of what you love!
