SFU’s Undergraduate Semester in Dialogue program is proud to present Am I Canadian? Defining Our Values. This event combines dialogues and workshops to explore the complex dynamics of what it means to be Canadian.

Canada is a national experiment in its early stages. Its population is ever growing thanks to constant new arrivals, while also anchored by a generational trickling down of diverse traditions. How does this complex inter-layering of cultural identities translate on a practical, daily basis? What about at work, in our places of education, and even through our Charter of Rights and Freedoms? Further, how does the commonly used term “mosaic” of multiculturalism affect our ability to identify and assert our own rightful identities as inhabitants of this land? Are you Canadian? What does Canada mean to you? Come and join us for a conversation about these important issues.

Registration is required as seating is limited. Free of charge. 

Please peruse the website for details on registration, workshop schedule, and speakers!
