Becoming Canadian Becoming Canadian, Episode 6

Becoming Canadian Becoming Canadian, Episode 6

With three young daughters and financial struggles, John and Claudia took the biggest risks of their lives – moving to Canada to start a business without knowing how to speak English. An 88-year old is proud of all her accomplishments, including her four-person marriage, and now adds her long-awaited, hard-earned Canadian citizenship to the list. Sharmila was expecting to become a Canadian alongside her mother, but an unfortunate illness had her sharing her citizenship ceremony with her young daughter instead. Saliu and Adeola moved from a big city in Nigeria to a small town in Regina with reservations but found an unexpected new way of life.
