...not just for Canadians!
Welcome to Network Canada

Network Canada is professional & social networking group based in Sydney, Australia that's open to everyone, not just Canadians. In addition to being the largest network of North American young professionals living in Australia, we're famous for our quirky, amazing internationally themed events. We also try to help out with travel advice around Australasia, tips for settling in Australia and much more.

Network Canada began in 2002 as a social network for Canadian expats living in Sydney hosting some seriously fun events. Word started to spread and now our events attract young professionals & university students from Australia, USA, New Zealand, France, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, South America, UK, etc, etc. In fact, our parties have become so popular that companies have started sponsoring them. There's usually 6 to 10 big events every year with anywhere from 1500 to 4,000 people showing up and lots of smaller events!

The goal of Network Canada is very simple: friendly people meeting other friendly people. You’re guaranteed to be introduced to new people of all backgrounds and professions and have fun at the same time.

In addition to fun events, Network Canada helps expats settle into life in Sydney by providing guidance on visas, immigration, foriegn currency transfers, insurance, mortgages, travel, etc. We don't always have all the answers but it's worth giving us a try.

Joining Network Canada is free. Just get on the email list, join us on Facebook or Instragram which is where you'll hear about more events, giveaways, etc.! If you're a young professional or university student aged 22-35ish, then you may also want to join our Meetup group where you can arrange events with other young professionals.

Online & offline, it's the same philosophy
Although Network Canada has been around since 2002 and has grown a lot, we still try to keep it all friends and friends-of-friends. As a grassroots group of largely young professionals who want to have fun and network, it has been relatively easy to communicate to everyone via email. However, over the past few years both the database and number of events have grown. So instead of everyone receiving way too many emails, we tend to only send one or two per event and post relevant details on the website or Facebook page.

And no matter what, we'll still conitnue our grassroots approach to building a great network of people through quality events. We'll also only allow sponsors to promote themselves through the network if we genuinely believe they've got good products or something of value to offer.

Our Canada Day bash was awesome!! Even Prime Minister Trudeau got involved and sent us a video message!
