Canadians move to the Bay Area at all different stages and so the DML is committed to uncovering good resources for newcomers, and not-so-newcomers. It’s amazing how much information is out there, and how much support and connectivity we can find in our local Canadian community. So, in our second Blog profile you’ll meet Sarah Mitchell,baby-whisperer and co-founder of Canadian Moms in Silicon Valley Facebook Group, who is one of those awesome people connecting Canadians locally.
