Canadians pride ourselves on our inclusion, yet in this past year we’ve witnessed attacks on Muslims in Toronto and a federal election that featured yelling matches over niqabs. As 25,000 refugees make their way to Canada and our population growth continues to depend on immigration (which will be the primary contributor to the country’s population growth by 2030), Spur asks what is the integration process like for newcomers, and how best do we ensure this country remains—or becomes—the fluid cultural mosaic we claim it is?
This event will begin with a performance by poets Zeinab Aidid and Shaniya Aidid.
