Immigration: Exploring Canada's Open Door Policy
Did you know
that one of every six Canadian residents was born outside the
country. Every year approximately 200,000 people become Canadian

country. Immigration has helped to make Canada a culturally rich,
prosperous and progressive nation but what about the costs and
challenges that accompany the welcoming of these new citizens. To
pretend that each and every story is filled with sunshine and
rainbows would be just that-pretending. In this session hear
