Learners were invited to watch one of three Canadian inspired films – Maudie, Remember, and One Week. While each film captured different aspects of Canada, each was a portrait that gave learners an insight into the kinds of stories Canadians tell. This yearly event is always a huge success.
After the films, LINC Learners participated in a Q & A with Atom Egoyan (director of Remember), Michael McGowan (director of One Week), and Mary Young Leckie (producer of Maudie). They were also treated to a special guest speaker, Ontario’s Education Minister Mitzie Hunter.
The Education Minister’s overall message to LINC learners was simple, encouraging, and welcoming, “Welcome to Canada. You belong here”.
Here is a short video highlighting the event including a few LINC Learners sharing their experience.
