Navigating a New Work World
It takes courage, patience, resilience and determination to start a new life as a stranger in a new country. I cannot talk about my journey to and within Canada without mentioning Bethlehem United Shelter. It was my very first home in Toronto – a home that put a roof over my head, gave me clothing, fed me four meals a day, exposed me to life in Canada and built a sense of community with other residents. As a home for the homeless, it was an opportunity for me to learn a lot about Canada, poverty in all its kinds, and was also a means of survival.
