This blog was connected to the “European News in Western Canada” magazine that will be published in November 2019 for the last time. For 2020, my plan is to expand this blog to include all areas of the magazine and to make it useful for Germans, Swiss, Austrians and any other German-speaking countries represented in Vancouver.

Areas this blog will focus on:

a. Employment opportunities or finding German-speaking employees

b. Events and promotion of events

c. Real estate – both rentals and sales – and finding places to live

d. New in town – expats, immigrants, short-term visas

e. Business promotion, PR, communications and publicity

Let me know if there is any way I can help you with marketing, sales, PR and communication for your business, your event, your product or service. I, of course, always encourage everyone to join the German Canadian Business Association to get together with other Canadians selling German products or Germans selling Canadian products. Besides monthly meetings, you can share your business information on their website and network with like-minded people in Greater Vancouver.
