Read On presents: Lionel Laroche - Bridging the Cultural Gap in Canada

Bridging the Cultural Gap in Canada
Immigrating to a new country requires significant adaptation. Immigrants leave a place where they know the unwritten rules and land in another place where society operates according to a different set of unwritten rules. Down the road, they can learn these unwritten rules and combine them with what they had learned back home to create a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts. What does it take for immigrants to integrate into Canadian society? This presentation explores what immigrants and non-immigrants can do jointly to bridge the cultural gap in Canada.

Read On is excited to host Lionel Laroche for this FREE event at the LSCO Gym.  For more information call 403-320-4977
