Picking up your life and moving to a new country is HARD

This is My Story

I am the son of an immigrant. I have great respect for people who leave their home country to seek a better life. I was born in the US, and am a US citizen, but I have lived in Canada twice: Once for graduate school to get an MBA at the University of Western Ontario (Ivey School of Business) and then to work for a few years in Toronto. I currently live in Larchmont, NY.

I’ve spent over 20 years building VC backed startups in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, New York and Toronto in sales and business development roles. I also spent a year in Toronto in venture capital. In 2014, I founded Syndesus. Syndesus works with US VC backed startups and high growth tech companies to build engineering teams in Canada. As a PEO (Professional Employer of Record) we are able to legally handle HR/payroll/remote employment for workers in Canada. We are also focused in assisting in talent retention by providing a relatively easy solution for H1-B tech workers to relocate to Canada and work for their same employer. Path to Canada is the second cross border company I have founded.

Why I started Path to Canada

Speaking from experience, I know that moving to a new country is a huge decision. Some of you making this move have no choice, as you cannot stay in the US any longer due to work visa or immigration issues. I also know that some of you have an H-1B but are considering moving to Canada because the wait for permanent residency is so long and you want a more permanent existence.

Path to Canada is about the journey to a new life in a new country. It starts with qualifying for immigration, but, equally important, it includes getting a job with a Canadian tech company that will sponsor your work visa. And it also includes the journey to establishing life in a new country. We will provide guidance on every step of the process.
