Hi @Alwyn

I would say it's very common, especially for software development. My husband and I work remotely as web developers for the same South African company that we worked for before moving to Canada, and I'm aware of others who also do this. I also work part-time for a fully remote Canadian company. Many local companies with physical offices offer some work from home options e.g. one day a week. Of course now with the COVID-19 situation a lot of people are forced to work from home anyway. I also know of people working for universities, doing accounting and other types of jobs (our neighbour is a work-from-home sommelier) who also work from home all or some of the time.

Victoria has a large tech industry and quite a few co-working spaces, libraries and many coffee shops where you will find people working (pre- and post-pandemic of course). There are also usually many tech-related events to bring people together - excellent opportunities for networking and not feeling isolated if you work alone.

If you are interested in Victoria or Vancouver then you can consider joining these Slack groups to meet people and keep up-to-date with what's going on in the tech industry:
