Join us for an open conversation with Omar Alisso who emmigrated to Canada in the 90's to start a new life for he and his family. He will discuss his experiences living in Syria and the challenges faced to get to Canada. Upon his arrival he quickly learned English and has been a passionate supporter of those trying to move to Canada. As recently as December he has been joined by 3 nephews and their families who are now beginning their lives in Canada with support from he and his wife Zeky. He will discuss the history of Kurds in Syria, Turkey, Iraq and Iran, their social lives, food, activities and family. Omar welcomes all questions, so please feel free to come with many!
