Planet Canada How Our Expats Are Shaping the Future by John Stackhouse
Review by Nadia Yangin for the Canadian Expat
The values that shape our hockey-loving, Timbit-eating home and native land are the same values that our country’s expats pack with them on their journeys throughout the world. In Planet Canada How Our Expats Are Shaping the Future, John Stackhouse brings us on a journey to hear the stories of our country’s expat innovators, change-makers, and quiet citizens who together, yet far apart, are united in the Canadian spirit and exude the globally-admired Canadian quiet confidence. The Canadian diaspora, as unique as its immigrants, is out there in every corner of the world, yet, you might not be able to find them. As Stackhouse points out, Canada is sorely lacking in its engagement with its expat community. With so many Canadians out in the world and most more than willing to give back to their country, Canada needs to connect with, support, and encourage global Canadians to represent Canada on the ever-growing world stage.
