As we begin the New Year in British Columbia, the Canadian Government's NEW Immigration Inniatives appear to have focused their attention on our Irish friends from the emerald isle. Minister for Immigration Services - Jason Kenny, having visited Ireland in 2013 on a trade mission, has stated that Canada will be welcoming significantly more families from Ireland, especially those with the trade skills that Canada so urgently needs both today and in the years ahead.
While many will be heading North to the higher paying jobs associated with our growing resourse sector, here in BC we have significant opportunites for many of those qualified trade skills. Welcome!!
Vancouver is home to many europeans and a growing number of those are from Irish decent. Richmond too has a contingency of the green, attracted by good employment opportunities, especially at our World renowned YVR Airport. Good Irish themed pubs here too!
If you or someone that you know may be heading to Vancouver's lower mainland, feel free to contact TREVOR BARNETT for local housing or rental information. This long term xpat from Mancunia (Manchester) extends a warm welcome and looks forward to hearing from you.
