Vancouver, BC Best Immigrant Entrepreneur:
Employees: 7 In Business Since: 2012

Moving2Canada founder, Ruairi Spillane, moved to Vancouver in 2008 to take up a role in finance. Life was good, but something was missing. He kept wondering why nobody was providing newcomers to Canada with information from the exploring stage all the way to long-term settlement. With entrepreneurial zeal, Ruairi built a network that filled those gaps in knowledge.
