My intention behind creating this community was to provide space for a topic that wasn't covered elsewhere on LiveJournal. Well, folks, apparently canadabound beat me to the punch. 251 members, active and lively, with some valuable immigration information available on the user info page. They also avoid the kind of blatant politicizing I resorted to when I did the write-up for defectors. canadabound is more focused on practical advice. limiteduquebec is a new community for people who are interested in moving to Quebec. And canadian_yank explores cultural differences between Canada and the US, from the perspective of American ex-pats. I urge all potential defectors to check these communities out.
I've updated the defectors user info page with links to a few helpful sites.
