Born and raised in France, Sophie Delaigue immigrated to Canada in 2006. She first settled in Quebec, then British Columbia, then eventually moved north.
Since moving to the Yukon eight years ago, Sophie has been involved with the Francophone community and is currently working as the immigration project officer with the Association Francophone Yukonnaise.
After becoming a Canadian citizen in 2011, Sophie took a seven-month long trip across the country with her partner and their dog. Her goal was to discover the diversity of this big country.
Sophie came to Canada for its tolerance, multiculturalism and openness.
