Ghyslain is 29 and hails from Angers, France.  He came to Canada under the Working Holiday Program in April 2014 and became a permanent resident in April 2018.

“A few years back, after I got my working holiday visa, I decided to go on a road trip and hitchhike on Canada’s east and west coasts.  After that, I went to see the Northern Lights… in Yellowknife, of course! I was supposed to stay just for a week at first. However, I’m still here and about to marry a Canadian gal!”

“Yellowknife is an easy place to find a job. I work for Community Living, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people with disabilities enter the labour market so they can live more independently.”


“My hope is for every young person and adult to be able to find a job in Yellowknife! I know it’s a process, but I’m confident!”

Soft spot:

“The Northern Lights for sure! I also love winter. The people are so warm and welcoming, like a family.”

Next steps:

“Getting married, of course. Start the citizenship process and buy a house.”

Words of advice:

“I encourage everyone who wants to emigrate to Canada to do so. Go for it!”
