The St. Lawrence-Rideau Immigration Partnership are holding a very special event on Thursday, March 7 in Brockville. ‘Around the World’ is an event where members of the public can learn about some of the different cultures and countries represented in Leeds and Grenville. Attendees will also be able to learn about the experience of moving to Canada. Everyone is invited to attend this free event being held at the Brockville Country Club between 6:30 and 8:30pm.
‘Around the World’ will involve participants of the Immigration Partnership’s ‘We Are Neighbours’ campaign, who contributed stories about moving to, living, playing, working, and studying in Leeds and Grenville. North Grenville will be represented by Dr. David Shanahan, an Irishman now known as a local historian and Editor of the Times. Each ‘We Are Neighbours’ participant will host a table that represents their home country. Event attendees will move from table to table, asking questions, engaging in conversation, and learning about each country and culture. Ireland, Syria, Pakistan, India, Chile, Scotland, and France will be represented.
