77 | Engaging the Canadian Culture as an Immigrant
As new immigrants continue to form part of the Canadian multicultural fabric they must fully understand their obligations as a Canadian resident/citizen. They must understand and accept that they are expected to contribute to national safety, stability, and social harmony.
This week’s episode is all about how immigrants can engage the Canadian culture. I discussed extensively with Charles the importance of role models, how to engage the Candian culture, Charles’ advice as a Human Resources executive, and much more.
