Becoming Canadian in Wood Buffalo
Welcome to a two-week series of stories, profiles, photographic essays, blogs and videos documenting the journey undertaken by newcomers to our region. They are our neighbours. They are our work colleagues. They are our friends. They are a group of people who aspire to become Canadian citizens and who are helping to build and shape the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.
The series is also a salute to the many community agencies, organizations, leaders and volunteers who extend handshakes of welcome and the kinds of support that transform one’s stop in a community into a home among friends. All their stories underscore the characteristic that connects residents of Wood Buffalo: Big spirit.
