What does it mean to be Canadian?
To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, students are invited to participate in a national challenge to demonstrate their Canadian pride! Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), CBC/Radio Canada, and CIBC are asking students (grades K-12) to submit a drawing, video, photograph, painting, or craft for a chance to win Canada 150 prizes.
Start by reflecting on some of these questions:
- How do you feel about living in a society in which people treat each other with respect?
- Is it important to you that Canadians recognize and value the contributions of Indigenous people and individuals from all cultures and faiths?
- When you think of living in Canada, is it important to you to have your voice heard?
- Who are some Canadians you admire? Consider celebrities, athletes, or everyday heroes in your own communities.
