Canada is a national experiment in its early stages. Its population is ever growing thanks to constant new arrivals, while also anchored by a generational trickling down of diverse traditions. How does this complex inter-layering of cultural identities translate on a practical, daily basis? What about at work, in our places of education, and even through our Charter of Rights and Freedoms? Further, how does the commonly used term “mosaic” of multiculturalism affect our ability to identify and assert our own rightful identities as inhabitants of this land?

Are you Canadian? What does Canada mean to you? Come and join us for a conversation about these important issues.
