The Host Country @Canada

Canada – We are the True North, strong and free. A place as diverse as it is inclusive. Where what it means to be human is front-and-centre in everything we do. Where the kitchen-party is a thing (seriously) that includes everyone. In short, it’s the perfect place to have this conversation.
