I came to Canada in 2004 and started this site so I could learn more about Canada and Canadians. There is now a ton ofinformation available for you to read but it would be great to get information from you and our other visitors. Would you please consider sending in information on the history of places where you live and the companies you work for or the charities you support? Please consider this site to be a communal effort and help to tell the story of Canada and Canadians so that we can educate everyone about us and hopefully attract more people around the world to visit us.

My Canadian Experience
My own record of settling in Canada. The Dept. of Immigration of Ontario suggested that it would be interesting if I documented my experiences in coming to Canada and the progress I made towards getting Permanent Landed Status and then on to Citizenship. I don’t pretend this is an exciting read as there is a lot of mundane stuff but you might find it of interest and especially if you are thinking of settling in Canada.
And finally should you have information on any aspects of Canada and its people and way of life please feel free to contribute it to the site.
