Olive YH Chang
Partner @iCA Immigration
As an immigrant, Olive experienced first-hand the struggles of integrating into a new culture and difficulties of juggling multiple cultural identities. She is deeply passionate about helping newcomers with their integration and immigration journey. She started her career in ESL education where she noticed a gap that needed filling. While there is ample opportunity and services available to new Canadians, permanent residents, and refugees; international students and temporary workers are left unaided. In 2020, she became a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) and joined Jennifer in launching iCA (Intercultural Avec Immigration Inc.) in order to help individuals and families to not only navigate the complex immigration system in Canada, but also to help them understand cultural differences in order that they may have a smoother integration into their new communities.
