Canada Day 2023 shines a light on people in Canada, as well as on Canadian diversity, inclusion and equity. Canada is known for being a multicultural society and we love to reflect that at Westoba.

What does becoming a Canadian mean to you? As a Canadian citizen, I can vote and be voted for, hence having a ‘say’ in the affairs of this great country, this is one thing that means a lot to me. I am so grateful to God for that. The hospitality of Canadians is so heartwarming, and I am glad Canada is my home now.
