Canadian dream series part 5 - Ahmed Hussein

Issued on:

Time now for the final part of our series looking at immigration in Canada, the Canadian Dream. Canada has one of the highest immigration rates per capita in the world. It follows a policy of multiculturalism versus the american 'melting pot'. At a time when immigration around the world is being examined, our five part series will look to answer is the canadian experience of multiculturalism the best way to integrate immigrants? In our final report on exploring the Canadian dream, we stay in Toronto, which has the largest community of Somali immigrants in the world. The civil war pushed many Somalis to seek stability and peace and to find an country where opportunities and dreams were available. RFI meets with Ahmed Hussein, a criminal lawyer and president of the Canadian Somali Congress.
