Find Tips and Advice on France from Canadian Expats

Of course, expat living in France is not just about shipping your belongings and filing in some bureaucratic papers. Regular socializing with fellow Canadians is an essential part of expat life and helps getting accustomed to the French way of life and mentality. InterNations helps you connect and meet up with other Canadians in France, residing in Paris, Lyon, Nice and many other places throughout the country. Just take a look at our group of Canadians in Paris or Canadians in Lyon.

If you ever wish to have a chat in your native language, discover where to shop for Canadian food or discuss your favorite sports team's latest match, become a member of the French InterNations Community:

  • Look up our top quality network to get to know open-minded expats from Canada in France.
  • Obtain and share insider tips in our France Expat Forums – e.g. how to hire a babysitter fluent in your native tongue for your children or where to get maple pancakes in Lyon.
  • Search the InterNations Places database for France to get information on institutions from your home country, including the Canadian embassy.

From the salty marshland of the Camargue to the Loire Valley, also known as the "Garden of France", we’ll help you connect with supportive and friendly Canadian expats in France.
