Canada may be our home but isn’t always our native land..

As Canadians, we have so much to be proud of! Did you know that Canada boasts the longest coastline in the world and the tallest mountain peak?! Not to mention our greatest invention yet, hello POUTINE!!!
But what really makes our nation exceptional and unique is our ethnic diversity. Statistics from statista.com show that approximately 21.5% of our permanent residents have immigrated from many different countries of origin and cultural backgrounds. India, China, and the Philippines to name a few. The result? Canada is one of the most interesting and wonderful places to explore and live.
Indeed we are the land of opportunity…
With so many countries represented in Canada comes a unique set of opportunities for those providing services to our citizens. The service industry in general has had the opportunity to evolve by offering bilingual and multilingual options for their customers. And many service providers including those in the wedding industry have had the opportunity to take into consideration the unique cultural differences that can exist within their clientele.
In the article 12 ways wedding traditions differ around the world on Insider.com, I learned that Brides from India may choose to not wear hand jewelry but instead get mendhi (a paint made from henna) painted in meaningful designs onto their hands and wrists. And that it is a Filipino newlywed tradition to release one female and one male dove as a representation of their love and future life together.
