Slowly Becoming Canadian - Episode 03 - Living in remote Canada

Helen (who used to live ELEVEN HOURS North of Edmonton, AB) joins me to talk about what it is like to live in an isolated Canadian community: do groceries for 9 months, be pregnant when the closest hospital is more than an hour drive away, get licked by a bear and much more.
We also find out how many car accidents per year in Canada involve moose. It’s probably more than you think.

Where many people started to slowly become Canadian

If you visit/live in Halifax, NS, you have to visit Pier 21. There is so much to see and so much to learn.

If you immigrated to Canada, you’ll see how people like you helped shape this country and how it helped them in return.

If you were born here, you’ll see how Canada – and you – has welcomed and continues to welcome and help so many people from everywhere.

Multiculturalism can sometimes be a very abstract idea. When you listen to these stories and see what happened in that place, it becomes very concrete. It is about people from Everywhere making a new Here.

 The Canadian Immigration Room

It is filled with great pictures, stories and very interesting facts

The Immigration Office

Look at that sassy lady with the sunglasses just about to enter Canada

The officer behind that desk was the person who decided to let you in or not.

And if you’re very nice, you’ll get to take a picture with Fenton, the museum’s mascot. Come on, look at him, you know you want to!
