Whoweare.ca aims to provide a forum for dialogue and creativity, a platform for broadcast and distribution of videos that paint a portrait of immigrants' experiences, with an eye to fostering a cultural diversity that grows out of learning about people whose cultural background is different than our own. From one culture to another, Whoweare.ca invites you to share your original way of looking at the men, women and children who make up the cultural mosaic that is Canada and the world.

Whoweare.ca combines the strength of new platforms with that of the video documentary to paint an impressionistic portrait of human migration. The Web component is a multi-faceted video-sharing platform dedicated to telling immigrants. stories in the context of current events around the world. Together, these stories form a great mosaic that is a portrait of our collective identity.
Whoweare.ca is (1) a forum for aggregating video content filmed and produced by people with a different point of view, (2) a producer of original documentary content, and (3) a call to the community to get involved and tell their stories. The primary mandate of Whoweare.ca, then, is to tell good stories, the stories of immigrants who have done well and who are models of social integration, yes, but also to speak out against the hardships and isolation faced by many. We seek to put a human face and voice on immigrants, hoping to chip away at the impersonal and distorted portrait of reality portrayed by traditional media.
