| Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada | speeches

As a journalist, I can’t tell you how grateful I am for that suspiciously brief introduction. I’d also like to echo the acknowledgment that we are indeed on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Haudenosaunee, and for your words to acknowledge the significance that we do indeed share these lands, and for allowing us to start these proceedings in the right way.

Speaking notes for Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship: An announcement on the Visible Minority Newcomer Women Pilot

| Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada | speeches

Good morning, everyone. I want to begin by acknowledging that we are on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Haudenosaunee. My nephew told me a few weeks ago, he called me very excitedly and said, “this city will never be the same. The Toronto Raptors have made it to the finals.” I said, “no, wait until we win the championship.” He said, “no, it’s good enough that we made the finals.” It’s really good to see that game three resulted in our success and I’m so excited to be back here.
