I will be traveling to Vancouver/Victoria, BC this August and was hoping some of the locals on MacRumors could help me out with a few things. First, this is not purely a vacation as I am planning to relocate there permanently (from the New York Metro area.) Here's a few of my questions: 1. I plan to stay about one month, so I am looking to sublet a 1 BR apartment for that time. Is there anywhere in particular I should look in the Greater Vancouver Area? Anywhere to avoid? I will have to find something sight unseen and will need close access to public transportation. 2. Here's the big one.. I will be looking for work while I am there, or at the very least make some contacts. I have been a live sound engineer for over 6 years, but in the past 2 years I have been getting more into studio and post work. Ideally I would be looking for employment at a recording/post facility or medium-large venue. I am also qualified for most stage/tech positions so I would consider other options as well. Can anyone help me out here? It would be cool to meet some of the members from the area while I am there. I also plan to spend a week in and around Victoria and Naniamo. I have been told that the island is nothing like the mainland, so I feel it's worth looking into. If you are interested let me know. I'm a 28 year-old male musician and Mac user...what more do you need to know? Thanks in advance for any help/advice.
