A better future by Calvin Pan My parents immigrated to Canada from China at the turn of the millennium. I was born two years later, making me a second generation Canadian. Although they came with little money, they had great enthusiasm for a better future for themselves and their children.
My father felt that if they stayed in China, his children would have little opportunity. Now I have great opportunity because of Canada.
My parents have been Canadian citizens for 14 years as of Canada's th birthday, and they have no regrets of choosing Canada as a new home.
My parents chose Canada because the country welcomed immigrants and made life easier My childhood memories of grandpa essay every one of them. My father and mother knew that the country embraced differences and had a very diverse population. Life was not easy for them in their home country.
They looked at the living conditions in Canada, including the education system and health care. After gathering information, making Canada home was very appealing and they subsequently started the immigration process.
Story continues below When they first arrived, they resided in one of the least fortunate and possibly the most dangerous neighbourhoods of Toronto. But a year later, when financials started improving, they moved to a better area and I grew up there for most of my childhood.
The living environment, which included the clean environment and good employment, was very enjoyable for my parents. Life became better and a brighter future seemed to be in sight. Although I am always reminded of it, I frequently wonder what my life would be like if my parents never immigrated.
The opportunities that I have now may never have existed if my parents stayed. I am very grateful for my parents' decision to move to Canada and the work they have put in to make a better life happen. An internship on Parliament Hill by Daryna Kutsyna Story continues below When I told my parents that I wanted to pursue an internship on Parliament Hill, they were surprised and confused.
In our native country of Ukraine, which we left for good when I was nine years old, politics were reserved for the wealthy and privileged. A regular citizen had little hope of meeting a Member of Parliament and voicing their concerns, let alone working for one or otherwise getting involved in the political process.
Their hesitation made me doubt my intentions, but eight years of education about the Canadian civic process and the democratic freedoms that Canadians left me hopeful.
I called my local Member of Parliament in Richmond Hill and asked if I could volunteer within my riding. Within days, I was invited to help out at an event. Weeks later, I was coming into the riding office regularly to help out.
In MarchI received a call that changed my life: Three years of extensive political involvement later, I still reflect every day on the incredible amount of gratitude I feel to be a Canadian.
Access to political decisions, freedom of speech, tolerance and equality of opportunity are the essential Canadian values that allowed me to pursue my dream career in way I could never have in my birth country.
It is for these freedoms that my parents have chosen Canada as our new home, and I look forward to working on protecting and preserving these Canadian values.
Best of all, I see that the lives of others around me reflect my own experience. My friends and colleagues of all backgrounds are free to follow their dreams and are judged on their merit rather than ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation.
My parents came to Canada so I could have a better future, and I have thanked them by building a better life than I ever could have back in Ukraine. Continue to fight, create and innovate by Julia Mastroianni My pride in being Canadian has evolved with me over the years, from a very simple pride in the country I was born in affording me the privileges I have access to, to a more complex version where my pride was linked directly to the human rights advances our country has made, to where I am now.
Now, my pride is in the people who live here, the people who may struggle with their identity in relation to this country and have persevered through undeserved hardships and discrimination but still stand strong, continuing to fight and create and innovate and make this country exactly what it is.
When my grandfather immigrated here from Italy inhe built a successful company from the ground up despite speaking very little English, despite doing labour out of the good of his own heart for people who never paid him back, despite knowing very little about the country he moved to except that he intended to build a life for him and his family there.
When my grandmother immigrated with him, she worked at and eventually managed a clothing factory filled with people who all spoke different languages than her and learned English from nothing but tv and work.
These are the people that continue to make me proud to be Canadian. We received in abundance by Anita Advani I am an immigrant to Canada. I came to Canada with my family in when I was five years old.
I feel completely at home in my adopted country and rarely think of myself as an immigrant even though technically I am. InI became a citizen.
My parents chose Canada because they hoped for a better life here. I still remember that frigid day in April when we disembarked from the plane.
Coming from India and wearing only thin cloth coats, it definitely was a shock to the system! We struggled on one income during those early years.Dealing Effectively with Child Sexual Behaviors By Brandy Steelhammer, MSW May, 3 age 4 will think differently about his abuse at age 6 and at age 9 and at age 14, clear through.
Of course you shouldn’t tolerate the “intolerable” What I would advocate is trying to expand one’s definition of tolerable. Spending one’s effort in a fight, either political or a literal war, is not usually a good way to increase utility. In the decades since my parents’ divorce and through the years of my marriage, I have learned no-fault divorce is one of the biggest lies of our culture.
