We believe that immigrating to Canada is a blessing, and that happiness is the result of persistence. Many immigrants face dilemmas that makes them consider going back to their country of origin. It is our philosophy that if you are capable of coming to Canada, then you are more than capable to stay.

Therefore it is our purpose to build a community to support them in overcoming hardships so that they may stay in Canada and prosper.

Immigrants can be likened to that of a tree. First generation immigrants are the foundation, the tree trunks, and their children are the roots in the soil. In order to immigrate to Canada they must first uproot themselves from their homeland. Therefore, it is imperative that they plant themselves firmly onto new soil in order for the tree to stay healthy. One must not waver in this situation because constantly uprooting would result in an unhealthy tree. One must have the resolve and strength to stay rooted onto this new soil so that the tree roots may grow to become strong and healthy so that it may one day support the weight of the newly grown up tree and blossom. Using this metaphor, it seems that to firmly establish oneself in a new country would take two generations time before they can see the fruits of their labour. First generation would root themselves to Canada, and the second generation would establish communities and bonds. That is not to say the first generations are simply the stepping stone in this process. Indeed, they are the foundation to this endeavor. It is through their unwavering foundation on which we build a prosperous future.
