Read On presents: Lionel Laroche - Bridging the Cultural Gap in Canada on May 26, 2017!

Join us on May 26 at 7:00 p.m. at the LSCO Gym for Lionel Laroche.

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.
