Canada2Leaf was founded in November 2008 by Janine Peeters. After her 14th months stay in Vancouver she returned to The Netherlands. And even though it felt good to be back home she still felt there was something missing: Vancouver, Canada!
Knowing that for the next few years she would only be a visitor of Canada instead of a Canadian resident, she had to think of something to stay connected to Vancouver, Canada.
"That's how I came up with the idea to set up the Canada2Leaf website and to start my own Canada2Leaf monthly meetups in Amsterdam. One of the things I love doing is organizing events and bringing people together. And with Canada2Leaf I still feel a very close connection with Canada even though I am back in The Netherlands. I am very happy with the new website with which I hope to attract and help more fellow Canadians and Canada enthusiasts..."
