Share Your Experience as an Immigrant
Friday, April 10, 2015

 

A storytelling initiative of Historica Canada, Passages Canada is collecting stories of Canadian immigrant. Passage Canada volunteers share their personal stories of cultural identity and heritage on-line. Many also develop dialogues in public spaces and meet with schools and community groups. Since 2002, over 900 speakers have created dialogue on Canada’s rich diversity with over 250,000 youth and adults, as Passages Canada continues to build understanding and respect for Canada’s shared history and values.

If you are a newcomer to Canada and live in Surrey we encourage you to participate in this initiative and share your experiences of settling in Canada, integrating into your local community and preserving your cultural identity. So far, only three Surrey's residents have participated in this project: Naveen Girn (Canada), Kishore Anand (India) and Baltej Singh Dhillon (Malaysia).
