  • Canadian Road Symbolizes Canada’s Multicultural Character

    As hundreds of thousands of foreign nationals from around the globe are approved for Canadian immigration each year, Canada is becoming an increasingly cosmopolitan country. Canada’s multicultural character is well symbolized by a stretch of highway south of Vancouver in the city of Richmond, British Columbia. Along a three-kilometer section of Number 5 Road in Richmond, which runs north and south parallel with Highway 99 to the east, there are more than 20 houses of worship or religious schools representing the Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and Sikh belief systems.

     

    These include the Richmond Christian Fellowship; The Way Community Church; Richmond Chinese Mennonite Brethren Church; Richmond Bethel MB Church; Ling Yen Mountain Temple; Church of God – Anderson; Subrammaniya Swamy Temple; Richmond Jewish Day School; India Cultural Centre of Canada (Nanak Niwas Sikh Gurdwara); Shia Muslim Community Centre; Az-Zahraa Islamic Academy; Peace Evangelical Church; Dharma Drum Mountain Buddhist Association; Vedic Cultural Society of British Columbia; Thrangu Monastery; and Cornerstone Evangelical Church.

     

    Richmond is the fourth largest city by population in British Columbia. Over 60% of Richmond’s 205,133 residents were born overseas and approved for immigration to Canada, with many arriving from China, The Philippines or South Asia. In fact, around 47% of Richmond’s residents are of Chinese ancestry, while another seven percent are of Filipino heritage and an additional seven percent have roots in South Asia.

     

    This is simply one example of how immigration to Canada is making this a more diverse democracy where foreign nationals can feel comfortable and find opportunities. People who immigrate to Canada enjoy many freedoms (including freedom of religion). Those who are issued a Permanent Resident (PR) Visa to Canada are permitted to live long-term in this incredible country and may also apply for jobs in Canada. There are other great benefits of a PR Visa to Canada, such as free health care, access to a world-class educational system and the option to apply for Canadian citizenship after as few as three years.
