About The Project

My Canada My Story

To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, NorQuest College’s Centre for Intercultural Education has developed and is leading a national social media campaign focused on highlighting a diverse and inclusive Canada. We believe in sharing the story of inclusion with pride, to contribute to a national dialogue of how we include each other, and to work together every day to make this country better.

By sharing your stories and perspectives, our college and our campaign partners hope to better understand what it means to be Canadian.

We thank the Government of Canada – Canadian Heritage department for funding the My Canada My Story campaign as part of the Celebration & Commemoration Program – Canada 150 Fund.
