Diversity Awareness for Manitoba Newcomers
March 15, 2011 - Winnipeg, MB
Glen Kirby from Kirby Communications has written and directed a series of four videos which will be viewed by every new Canadian choosing Manitoba as his or her home.
My Home is Manitoba
My Home is Manitoba was commissioned by the Manitoba Government to help newcomers with diversity awareness. DVDs of the video series are being distributed to immigration offices throughout the province.
The videos are the culmination of an ambitious 10 month production involving the government, Kirby Communications and Midcan Production Services.
Residents from many countries are featured, including Guyana, Ethiopia, Germany, The Congo, China and the Philippines. A section is also devoted to the history and stories of Manitoba's Aboriginal people.
