July 2019 Digital Moose Lounge Newsletter

A newsletter from one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.


Celebration success! More than 200 Canadians (and honourary Canadians) joined us on June 27th for the 9th annual flag raising at San Jose City Hall followed by our celebration at Uproar Brewing Company. We shared our DML Canadian Heritage Minute, ate Nanaimo bars, had some great maple beer and collected donations for Second Harvest Food Bank.

At the flag raising event, the City of San Jose and the Consulate of Canada presented a plaque and certificate to the DML for 20 years of service in the Bay Area. At Uproar Brewing, the DML was honoured with two special attendees, Handol Kim, and Dario Cruz, who were two of the four DML founders. Thanks to everyone who helped us with the big day. With your generosity, we raised over $600 for Second Harvest Food Bank, surpassing the $500 raised last year, and collected more than 69 pounds of food. The food collected will provide 57 nutritious meals for those in need.

A big thank you to our sponsors; BC Trade and Invest, the Consulate of Canada, Marriott of San Jose, the City of San Jose and the Office of Council member Raul Peralez. Also a big thank you to Steve Vandewater and the team at Uproar Brewing for hosting us. Finally a big thank you to our volunteers who helped us make the big event possible.

As a special Canada Day present, Air Canada is offering DML members 15% off all fares between USA and Canada using code “CANADA2019” (offer expires December 15, 2019).

Check out more photos from the event on our Facebook page!

We are looking for original members and Board of Directors to help tell the story of DML in celebration.

Raptors are NBA Champs

On June 13, Canada saw it’s first major title come north of the border for this first time since the Toronto FC won the MLSE in 2017. This is the first major four title (MLB, NBA, NHL, NFL) for Canada since the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Blue Jays both won in 1993. The Raptors closed out the series in the final game in Oracle Arena, defeating the Golden State Warriors 114-110 in game 6 of the series. During the finals, Canadians in the San Francisco area, including our DML members, were able to attend Molson and Tim Hortons sponsored events at Tabletop Tap House.

Ask a Canadian

In the News: Canadian L1 visa holders on alert
recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle reported that Canadians who are applying for L1 visas  for the first time or renewing their existing visas are now encountering difficulties with US border agents. The article suggests this might have something to do with increased tensions between Canada and the US over trade policy. Some immigration lawyers have speculated it may simply be the new policy of the current administration, although they have not explicitly been informed of any policy changes. The Department of Homeland Security, is now directing Canadians to Citizenship and Immigration Services should they need to renew their L1 visas.

New Blog Series: “Ask A Canadian”
We are launching another new blog series called “Ask a Canadian.” One of our newest DML board members, Hugh Morgan who has lived in the Bay Area for 27 years, brings a wealth of knowledge to this series. He starts by tackling the thorny subject of health care and health insurance in the United States. For those who have recently arrived, are contemplating the move or have been here and are still stymied, Hugh attempts to debunk some of the confusing and quirky conventions that exist south of the 49th parallel. First up: all those acronyms and jargon!
Blog Post: Meet Madeline Jhawar
In our latest DML profile we meet an Edmonton native who has a real wanderlust, so much so she set up her own travel business, providing great advice to travelers and adventure goers.

Our newest DML board members

Pavan Dhillon, Hugh Morgan & Dorin Greenwood
We are thrilled to welcome our newest Digital Moose Lounge Board members. One of them knows a thing or two about parenting hockey kids, another is rather busy as a Canadian immigration expert, and somebody bakes sourdough and roasts coffee in their back yard. You can read about all our board members here.

Now you know

There were over 780,000 Canadians living in the United States as of 2016. Approximately 16% of them live in California. That means just over 125,000 Canadians call California their home away from home.

What’s your immigration story?

Reporter Melia Russell from the San Francisco Chronicle covers tech and labor.

Melia is working on a story about how the NAFTA Professional (TN) visa became a popular pathway around the (oversubscribed) H-1B visa.

If there are any TN visa holders out there who are willing to share their immigration stories, Melia wants to get a “real person’s” perspective on what the process was like (especially for engineers and computer systems analysts).

Melia can be reached at 415-777-6305 or by email.

Ultimately, I think it’s safe the say that the values of IIBA (multiculturalism, inclusion, diversity) closely align with those of Canada.”
