Canada & Multiculturalism


Canada has been a home to more than 200 nationalities and has been taking care of them like a mother takes care of her child, by distributing immense and unconditional love for many centuries. It is the second largest country in the world where half of its population have degrees! People in Churchill, Manitoba leave their cars open to provide an escape for pedestrians who might encounter Polar bears! This explains why Canada is the number 7th country in the world where most of the immigrants reside.

Every year one million Canadians send letters to Santa Claus on Christmas at his own postal code “HOH OHO, North Pole, Canada”. And our Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been welcoming Syrian immigrants with flowers at the airport, which speaks a great deal about our Prime Minister and the country we live in. As a fun fact according to Montreal Blog, Canada has been marked the number 1 best place to be a student in the world!

Just as it’s variety of landscapes from the Rocky Mountains to flat rolling hills to the Prairies, many different races reside in Canada, from Asians to Latinos, Africans to Indians. This makes Canada the most interesting country in the world due to its diversity, not just in weather and landscapes but also in people who live here. Canada has been changing and updating laws year by year for international students, helping them to adjust their life style and also by relaxing rules for Permanent Residency. Which other country of the world provides a reputable job, with decent salary and relaxed Permanent Residents’ rules for international students or immigrants.

Canada has been hosting various events to mark the importance of immigrants here. For example, the Multifest taking place on July 28th, 2018 at Alderney Landing focuses on diversity living in Nova Scotia.

The hard working volunteers are busy day and night putting together this festival to provide a unique cultural experience to the residents of Nova Scotia to share the diversity in our Province.

The Multifest team have been working closely with vendors and performers from different parts of the world, presented by immigrants living in Nova Scotia and international students who go to university in Halifax/Dartmouth.

We have received support from various organisations and institutions, MLA’S, MP’S and councillors, along with the entire community. We are pleased to bring this Festival back to Alderney Landing on the Dartmouth waterfront.

Multifest will take place on July 28, 2018 at Alderney Landing, Dartmouth from 11:00am to 8:00pm, and will mark another great day where we will prove, and set an example about how important diversity is and what should be done to make everyone feel at “Home away from Home”!
