    Any Torontonians/ other Canadians in HK?

    Hi everybody!
    First of all, what a great site! I'm really enjoying learning about HK through this site. Is it becoming a very useful tool. My partner and I are set to move to HK sometime within the next year. Our main concern is isolation. How have you all dealt with it upon arrival in HK? Has it been easy to head out and meet people? Where do most expats live? Downtown or in areas like Repulse Bay?

    Looking forward to hearing from all of you!
    Kev.

    there are more canadians in hk than any other nationality(other than hk chines of course!)... something like 211,000 or so... even more than philippines...

    expats are concentrated in:

    discovery bay
    sai kung
    repulse bay
    mid-levels

    among other places...

    you shouldn't have any problem meeting people, just come with adventure in mind and you'll do great!

    i'm from saskatoon, but i've been here 11.5 years or so...

    Hello Heeneyke

    Welcome to the site. I am from Toronto (well north GTA really) and have been visiting this site since the beginning of the year. My husband & I are planning to retire in Hong Kong in 5-7 years and I have learned SO MUCH from everyone here. You're gonna love it!

    Where in TO are you located?
