At Expat Focus, we like to be on the lookout for resources around the web that could help prospective expats adjust to their new countries. Today, we’re taking a look at Canada and some of the blogs that might be useful for expats there.

Eat. Live. Travel. Write.
http://www.eatlivetravelwrite.com/

Now calling Toronto home, Australian Mardi somehow manages to fit in a full-time job teaching French, running cooking classes for young lads, contributing freelance foodie articles and teaching French pastry techniques.

Oh, and she manages to fit in her her blog eat. live. travel. write, a journal of gastronomic adventures and settling into expat life.

Brits In Toronto
https://britsintoronto.com/

Brits In Toronto proudly proclaims to blog the best pubs, curry, jobs and dental care in Toronto. Voted "Best New Website 2013" by the editor's mum (the best accolade to garner by far), this community journal is a collection of tips, tricks, where to find the best tea, and expat member features; perfect for networking.

Brown Bear Travels
https://brownbeartravels.com/

Warning: sharing incredible travel adventures on a Canadian working holiday, this British couple will induce wanderlust and lure unwary travellers to a country where the chocolate can be a little disappointing (this is their opinion) but where it's entirely possible to throw yourself off gigantic falls in a wooden barrel. (Don't worry though - Brown Bear Travels discovered a hack to get good English sweets delivered to their doormat.)

How's It Going - Eh?
https://howsitgoing-eh.com/

A self-confessed A Japanese-American valley girl's notes on the adaptation to life in The Great White North, the title alone of this intriguing blog draws readers into the hair-raising tales - including an especially funny list of driving perils in Vancouver. Meeting her husband on a snowy mountain top brought Shelli over to the other side of the great American border, but four years and a baby-Mountie or two still make life rather interesting...

Lost In The Leaf City
http://lostintheleafcity.com/

A fantastic resource in its own right, Lost In The Leaf City is a blog for newcomers and immigrants in Canada. Blogging topics include learning, volunteering and Carolyn's journey to become less of an Alberta stranger each day. Her escapades are both typical of a foreigner and embarrassing feats typical of a clumsy, slightly obsessive-compulsive part of her character.

Maple Bacon Please
https://maplebaconplease.com/

Eschewing traditional stereotypes, or rather opting to taste as many as possible, Danielle is an expat who moved six months ago from Australia to Canada in search of Poutine, BeaverTails and Canadians wearing pyjamas in public. At Maple Bacon Please, there are Yellow Bus Rides in true North American tradition, a 'desperately seeking' series trying to answer so-called "easy" everyday questions every expat has, and a wonderful vein of saucy humour.

Terra Incognita
http://land-incognita.blogspot.co.uk/

Moving to French speaking Quebec for love was never going to be incredibly straightforward for Finnish native Melissa, but taking on a challenge stirred the blood of this wanderlusting migrant. Speaking 6 languages already and hoping to fold a few more into her linguistic quiver, life is never going to be boring at Terra Incognita, the Land Unknown.

The Loud Americans
http://www.loudamericans.blogspot.co.uk/

The Loud Americans are definitely the neighbours that throw parties leaving heads pounding for days and stories knitting for years. A family of 5 who have lived in India, Minnesota and now Toronto, Canada, their expat blog is a journal of mischief, love and wonderful family news.

The Wandering Rose
http://thewanderingrose.net/blog/

Lindsay is an English expat who wears her wanderlust on her heart (and permanently etched on her skin). Wrangling with a nut allergy, an adoration of geography and a habit of geocaching her way around the world, the wandering rose is a window onto real expat life.

Correr Es Mi Destino
http://correresmidestino.com/

With a plethora of Canada-centric topics on her blog Correr Es Mi Destino, Zhu aka Juliette, a Mandarin-speaking expat from France, emigrated to Canada after never really feeling 'French' enough in her own country. A mother of many talents, she shares her extensive journal of cultural adventures with a side of 'word nerd' love.

We’re always on the lookout for more sites to feature - if you run a blog about living in Canada, leave us a link in the comments and we’ll take a look!
