Browsing: Poles abroad

What makes Canada, in comparison with other countries, so special? Undoubtedly, one of the most important factors are its inhabitants – a rich mosaic of cultures, religions and traditions. Among them is also a large group of Polish immigrants. An Ordinary Move, the seventh volume of memoirs that has been published by The Canadian Polish Research Institute, reads like an orchestra of immigrant voices. Each voice tells a different story but they come together to present a portrait of the most recent immigrants to Canada.

If you would like to find out what it is like to be a Polish midwife in Tanzania or teach mathematics as a volunteer in that country, you can do so by visiting the Centre for International Debate in Warsaw. Two exhibitions hosted there as part of the Global Education Week show the work of these extraordinary women.
