The Blog Roundup

As we reflect back to last year, we can’t help but notice how much we have grown as a community and as a team. One of the things that keep growing is our GEC blog! Did you notice that we have some of the best resources for our international residents and Vancouverites?

Without further ado, here are some of our best blog posts of 2021:

“A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.”

With joy 💫,
