Live Abroad in Montréal!
The affair with Montréal, began at an early age for Tania Fox.
From the age of sixteen, she became a regular visitor to her to the city that captured her imagination. After making numerous trips and collecting friends along the way, she stood firm in her mission to relocate to the city of glistening white snow winters, beautiful summers and great people.
Believing this place was her soul’s home, she made the ‘official’ leap in 2007. With her possessions in tow, she was met with a vigilant border guard that blocked the path to her final destination.
