Good on your for being proactive in your transition. You know what you want and you’re working toward that, very admirable :)
Currently in Vancouver, the job market is tough. If you were a student looking for a part time job, there are sometimes on-campus jobs that are intended for students who need to work on the side. That may be an option to look into?
In Vancouver we have a transgender health clinic that has a program dedicated to transgender individuals. This is where I went for therapy and hormone readiness assessment. They offer primary care (meaning you can get your assessment done with a doctor there and they will oversee everything transition related with you) and they also offer things like group drop-ins and counselling. The waiting list can be long, I know it often takes them a while to call you back after you first call them.
I wish you the best Ryan, and your English is great, no worries!
