My Identity is in Canada

By Adina

I love travelling! But what I love even more, is returning home. It’s often when I’m away that I begin to reflect upon what Canada is to me and what being a Canadian is all about. My heritage is from different parts of the world, but my identity is in Canada.

Canada is more than the old cliche, “A Canadian not an American.” We are peacekeepers. We are rational. Canadians are known for more than just being tolerant. We are identified as a country that welcomes, encourages and loves diversity.
