Detour to Canada


We're a team of volunteers consisting of Permanent Residents who have virtually come together to share our knowledge and experiences in the immigration process to Canada.

If you have questions about your immigration plan, whether you’re doing it DIY-style, or you’re looking to hire an agency, whether you’re single or with a family, we are here to guide you in your journey. 

With our combined knowledge and experiences, we will try our best to give helpful tips and information, and to answer all your questions. 

Read our posts, watch our videos, check out our FAQ page, or join our Facebook group.


Meet the people behind it all.

Detour to Canada is her second blog which she launched two years after her first blog, Empowered Moms-at-Home. She wrote the guidebook So You Want to Come to Canada, Now What? released last October 2020. She’s also an aspiring non-fiction book author and is currently freelancing as an SEO writer.
