CIES Summer Festival Photo Contest - What is Canada?

When you look around what do you see that represents Canada? It's this question that sits at the heart of the 2016 CIES Summer Festival Photo Contest. There are no rules about what kind of photo you submit as Canada can represent so many different things to so many different people. A tree, your children, Tim Horton's, a hockey player, a mountain, a street, a river, a statue, an animal or family - you name it. Simply submit a photo that says Canada to you! The Contest is open to every one, be sure to email your photos to shevaughnsmith@immigrant-education.ca no later than August 14th, 2016.

When hearing the term Canadian, the freedom to be who you are, hockey dominance, donuts, good beer, equality for all, universal healthcare, public education,  politeness,  diversity, comfort, beauty, desire to help others, being proud, cold winters and beautiful nature all come to mind. Notwithstanding and perhaps above all else, being Canadian means being a citizen of one of the more sane, civilised, and respected nations on the planet, and a member of a community that includes, and welcomes all the world has to offer.

Now what can you find out there that looks like that? Good luck and we look forward to your visions of Canada!
