Look at My Canada by Brenda Mein and Kim Trynacity

Royal Roads University student's Brenda Mein and CBC’s Kim Trynacity spoke with six people who have chosen to make Canada their home, and discovered that a photograph can their expose deep and unique attachment to their new country, and reveal personal tales of hardship and hope.

The result of these conversation is “Look at My Canada,” and the photos taken are as unique as each participant’s story of arriving and living in Canada.

Each participant – all of whom have been through programs at Norquest College – were asked to take a photograph that best represented how they are becoming Canadian. The photos prompted a deeper discussion with participants about what brought them to this country, and why home is now Canada.
