What our clients say

“Our move to Canada was our ninth relocation in 23 years and without a doubt the smoothest and happiest to date because of ARIANNE’S amazing professionalism and attention to detail. ARIANNE contacted me within 24 hours of our relocation confirmation to find out our concerns and needs which they began to address immediately. Their personal touch, fantastically human staff and genuine care for every member of my family – from 5 years to nearly 50 meant that all four of our children, my husband and I all had the happiest of arrivals and relocation to our new life in Montreal.”

“Manon and her team at ARIANNE Relocation made my move from the UK to Canada easy. What they don’t know about relocation isn’t worth knowing.”

Lee Singleton, Head of Studio at Square Enix External Studios

“Thanks to ARIANNE and its competent & knowledgeable team, we were able to find a great home, the right schools for our children and last but not least were able to cope successfully with the local administration in its various forms! The services of ARIANNE were outstanding and made our transition from Germany to Canada smooth and enjoyable. This help was critical and ensured our very successful integration into Quebec. Thank you!”

Dr Tarik Möröy, President & Scientific Director, Institut de recherches cliniques de Montréal (IRCM)

“When we moved to Montreal from Australia to set up a new technology company, ARIANNE’S support was invaluable. They were with us every step of the way, ensuring that we had everything we needed to make our relocation as smooth as possible. ARIANNE’S experience and professionalism left me free to concentrate on business issues, knowing that my wife and children were in expert hands.”

Terry Buckley, Owner Ontic Solutions

“ARIANNE Relocation was a great help when we agreed to make the move to Canada. Because of their expertise and excellent ability to listen and understand our needs, the team was able to fully support us. They provided reassuring advice and information specifically adapted to our family situation. We warmly recommend their services, which have allowed us to enjoy a smooth landing and easy integration.”

Pierre-Yves Boué, Technical Account Manager, Astellia Canada

“We have moved a lot around the world. Eight houses in the last fifteen years! We know good and bad moves, and our move to Canada has been by far the easiest. The ARIANNE team gave us all the logistical support and all the information to help us make the best choices in terms of schools and housing. They also gave us lots of little tips to start enjoying Montreal from day one. Today we live in a lovely house, and our three boys are absolutely happy at school and we enjoy every day.”

Juan Jiménez, Senior Portfolio Manager, International Equities at PSP Investments

“ARIANNE truly made a city that was unknown to us feel like home. Their professionalism and knowledge made it possible for us to transition smoothly into a new city and a new country.”

Steve Gruber, Head of Middle Office, Pictet

“We were very satisfied with our experience with ARIANNE which greatly facilitated our relocation and allowed us to find our new home, all of which would have been difficult, I would say even impossible otherwise.”

Gregory Emery Ph.D, Université de Montréal

“It was a hard time moving internationally but step by step ARIANNE took care of the entire process and took 100% of the pressure off of us. You knew the best thing for us and we thank you again and again for this. We never for a minute forgot the kindness you showed us far beyond your job duties. Owens Illinois Canada is VERY fortunate to have you helping their employees with moves. We will always recommend you to our company and anyone moving to Canada.”

Albert & Mary Jane Martin, Owens Illinois Canada

“I particularly appreciated the kindness, patience, flexibility and professionalism of the entire ARIANNE Relocation team. Thank you.”

Jacques Millery, Cap Gemini

“I would like to thank ARIANNE for the excellent work for our company. Our transferee mentioned to us that he had rarely met with relocation service agencies that have your caliber of professionalism. Thank you..”

Diane Levac, HR Coordinator, Pharmascience

“ARIANNE facilitated and optimized our discovery trip. They expertly and professionally selected apartments and daycare centers for us to visit. The team was always there to support and advise us, and to present us with clear and objective information. They were so supportive that in only five days we signed the lease for our apartment and secured daycare centers for the kids …all in full accordance with our criteria and budget.”

Claire & Sébastien Benat, Senior Manager of Financial Services at Sia Partners

“We have been working with ARIANNE Relocation for several years now. Our relationship is one of trust and friendship. The team at ARIANNE is always eager to take care of our transferees and their families, even on short notice. Their experts fully address our needs and our employees’ needs, and they have answers ready for all the questions we may have, on any aspect of relocation. They truly are caring professionals who master their subject.”

CM, Senior Advisor of talent acquisition

“Manon and her team are the best relocation experts I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Her abilities go beyond the practical elements of her service (which she performs with high professionalism, great integrity and care). She brings her counselling and entrepreneurship background to give each client and family the strong re-assuring sense that she will take care of them, no matter what the issue is; and by that manages to remove the stress sensation that most people experience when moving with their family to an unfamiliar place. With ARIANNE, there are no hidden agendas, no slacking and cutting corners and you will always receive more then you were hoping to get. Anyone relocating to Montreal, Quebec or other Canadian provinces will be lucky to be served by Manon and her team at ARIANNE.”

Edna Chosack, Head Coach, District 3 Innovation Center

“Having moved around the globe many times before, I can categorically say that the support and personal service we received was exceptional. Manon and her team are not only expert in the technical aspects of an international move, they also know that this is a very emotional and stressful time for the executive and the family.”

Anniek Kindts, Partner and Integral Development Coach, The Coaching House

“We recently relocated from Brisbane, Australia to Montréal, Canada and Manon was our relocation consultant. On the first day she showed us a number of real estate properties that met our needs and this was something our previous consultant had been unable to do. Additionally, Manon and her team made getting social security and health cards a simple process and helped us throughout the setup. I have no hesitation recommending Manon for relocations to Montréal; we are very satisfied with the service.”

Marc Fenton, General Manager, Rio Tinto

“I wanted to pass on my sincere thanks to the ARIANNE team for all the help and assistance provided to me over the part months in relocating to Canada. I have well and truly settled in now and that is in great part to the excellent service you have provided. This has been by far the smoothest relocation I have experienced in my career and it has been extremely refreshing to have an effective relocation agency to manage the housing and documentation needs that can sometimes be a nightmare to organize. The staff is excellent and have been outstanding in their approach and management of my case. Thanks for everything.”

Bill Lasses, British American Tobacco

“Thank you to Manon and her team for all the help on buying our new property. I’ve mentioned to Kim more than once that your knowledge and professionalism is head and shoulders above what I have experienced with most relocation and real estate professionals.”

Tom Glenn, Supply Chain Security Specialist

“ARIANNE Relocation Agency has been extremely helpful in getting our assignees settled. They are informed, professional, and very flexible in assisting with all of our specific needs.”

A.T., Global Relocation Consultant

“Thank you for your hard work and your professionalism. You are fantastic; the family is in such good hands with you!”

Pennie Hayes, Relocation Manager with International Consultants Centre (ICC) in association with MERCER in Australia

“My relocation counsellor was absolutely exceptional. I have nothing but the utmost respect for such a devoted, intelligent and caring individual. I now have a beautiful place to call home and I am incredibly thankful to my counsellor for her hard work and dedication. She really went above and beyond to help me in this transition period and I am extremely grateful for that. Thank you ARIANNE.”

Martin Cyr, Imperial Tobacco Canada

“Even before my arrival in Canada ARIANNE was sorting out my education needs. They were instrumental in navigating the education system and ensuring that upon my arrival everything was taken care of and my transition to a college was not a problem.”

Christopher Buckley , Fanatical AWS Team Lead at Rackspace

“A fantastic company who made our transition to Canada really smooth and welcoming, we would definitely recommend them every time for all your relocation needs.”

Chris and Donna Adkins, Health & Safety Specialist Metso Minerals

“ARIANNE has been a real support during the last 2-3 months to help me import my cars to Canada. My counsellor certainly helped to facilitate my departure and, despite the challenging process with the cars, she always kept a positive attitude.”

Terry Moro, GlaxoSmithKline

“Je voudrais témoigner du grand professionnalisme de l’équipe d’ARIANNE. Arrivant de France avec une petite famille de 3 enfants de 4, 7 et 9 ans, beaucoup de questions pratiques sont vite arrivées,  Mme Dumas et son équipe ont été nos interlocuteurs attentifs pendant plusieurs semaines, avant, pendant et après notre arrivée. ils ont réussi à régler les difficultés d’inscription des enfants à l’école, nous ont permis d’obtenir nos permis de conduire et cartes d’assurés sociales facilement par une très bonne préparation des dossiers, ont réussit notre dédouanement. Ils ont surtout réussi à nous proposer plusieurs logements, dont l’un d’eux nous a convenu et où nous sommes très heureux maintenant. Tous les petits tracas étaient anticipés et presque réglés par avance: eau, électricité, alarme, banques, cartes de crédit et de débit (!…difficile à comprendre pour un français), ils nous ont même présenté à un concession automobile pour les démarches d’achat anticipé d’un véhicule quelques semaines avant notre arrivée ( certains amis actuels cherchent encore d’aussi bonne condition que nous !)…. Cette approche par anticipation, cette écoute et cette disponibilité nous ont également particulièrement rassuré dans cette tempête d’évènements que représente une expatriation. Ils nous ont aidé à trouver de l’aide pour garder les enfants, s’occuper du jardin et anticiper le déneigement (!)…. Même si ce n’est pas eux qui était directement chargés par mon entreprise de faire nos dossiers d’immigration, ils nous ont accompagné tout au long de la procédure au cas où, de même pour le déménagement….: bravo.

Je terminerais pas un mot sur la gentillesse de l’équipe, au delà du “service” attendu, leur côté très humain et amicale, leur empathie nous a beaucoup touché, ils nous ont offert leur amitié au delà de leur mission et nous sommes très heureux de les avoir comme nos premiers amis au Canada.

Luc et Nathalie FELDMANN (expatriation Laboratoire Servier : Paris-Montreal , été 2015).”

Famille Luc Feldmann, Servier Canada

“Manon et son équipe d’ARIANNE Relocation ont pris en main notre relocalisation depuis la France vers le Canada, à Montréal, il y a 5 mois. Des démarches administratives (permis, sécurité sociale, etc), aux recherches de garderies et d’écoles, en passant par la recherche de notre futur logement. Nous avons profité d’un service complet et efficace !  Avec nous, depuis 5 mois, et toujours disponibles pour des conseils sur le pouce, Manon et son équipe font preuve d’ une grande expertise, d’une sympathie sincère et d’une intégrité rare. La présence d’ARIANNE Relocation, avant et après notre arrivée, nous a définitivement soulagés d’une grande partie du stress lié à l’expatriation de toute une famille.”
