Transportation

Be it the journey to Canada for the first time—one potentially associated with turmoil, grief and hope—or the daily commute to work, transportation is an essential and complex part of our lives. In this module we talk about how participants came to Canada, their experiences with transit in Canada, and how this compares to the ways people get around in their countries of origin. We consider the lasting impact of the journeys immigrants take, barriers and complications associated with everyday transportation, and how one can become familiar with their new surroundings on foot, bike, car and public transit.
