Impressions of Vanderhoof:
Very friendly everyone says hello. They found that in bigger cities like Vancouver people kept to themselves and found it very hard to feel ‘community’
Transportation is a big issue. The ladies from Fiji have a hard time getting around and don’t get to town much.
Cows are the most aggressive animal in Fiji. If you wear red ‘watch out’
Vanderhoof is much different than Fiji because in Fiji everyone has their own plantation and relies only on that for food
Hard to find the food here and it is expensive for what they find naturally/wild in Fiji (guava, coconut, mango)
Because of being settled by the English, both the language is taught (accent) and they drive on the right hand side of the road so in Canada they always walk to the wrong door!!!!
English as a Second Language instruction is offered through the CALP program.
CALP is open Thursdays and Fridays 10 – 3 at the Neighbourhood Space next to Subway on Highway 16. Contact Jaimie at 250 567 4879.
