Wen Fengshun (Steve) immigrated from Shenzhen, China with his family to Prince Edward Island in May 2014. He used to work in a large IT company as a senior programmer and his wife was a chartered accountant. They have two young children. Steve’s family immigrated to Canada for better environment to live and raise their children.
When the family were living in Shenzhen, China, they were all stressed in their daily lives. Steve and his wife each spent over two hours in commuting every day and their children in elementary school often did homework and review till late night. So they decided to make a change to their lives by moving to live in Canada. And now that they have settled down in Prince Edward Island, they enjoy the life here very much.
What Steve likes most about his new life in PEI is that the family now has more time to spend together. The pace in PEI is much slower than in Shenzhen and the winter is long. It gives Steve the time he needs to think about his family and actually spend time with his wife and kids. Steve’s wife is currently improving her English in school and is thinking about either going back to the accounting field or starting new in the education area. Their two children now finish school and homework early in the afternoon and they enjoy the time they can spare on hobbies like sports and art. Everyone is happy for the opportunity to have a new start.
In Steve’s case, he was able to transfer his knowledge and experience in the IT industry from China to Prince Edward Island. Steve conducted extensive market research and developed a viable IT business plan during his first few months in PEI. In February 2015, his own IT company, IDEA IT Solution INC, opened for business at 47 Beach Grove Road, Charlottetown. The company’s main service is website development and mobile app development. Its service also branches into the digital accessories and social media promotion. The company currently has two employees, Don and Harvey, to team up with Steve to strengthen both programming resources and guarantee to provide great customer services. . IDEA IT Solution provides good website development service at a competitive rate. They have already finished the project of creating the website for Guaranteed Auto Sales Dealership (http://guaranteeauto.ca/) and a Chinese Tea Imports company Yixiangju Imports Ltd.(http://yixiangju.ca).
Their own website (easylifepei.com ) is under construction right now. Its IOS app “Easylifepei” will be launched with the website. The website and app aim to provide news, guides, tips, and discount information to Chinese immigrants in Prince Edward Island.
