We Are Canada 2019

The Canadian Race Relations Foundation is proud to present the project  Nous sommes le Canada - We are Canada, a series of short reports on exceptional leaders from cities and rural areas of the country, developed by photographer and author Jean-François Bergeron (Enviro Foto Group).  We will present each week new images and stories on women and men of cultural communities, Aboriginal communities and francophones from various regions.  The identified leaders deliver their life story and their vision of the values that define our country.  A reflection on the struggle against discrimination is provided to the reader.  All this is accompanied by a rich and creative canvas of photographs portraying leaders in their living environment, especially created for this project.  Hope you will enjoy discovering our diversity and cultural wealth !
