In a recent LinkedIn post, Victor Dodig reflects on remarks he gave at the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 highlighting his family’s personal journey to Canada and the importance of newcomers in strengthening the country’s social and economic fabric.  

“It’s no longer being hewers of wood and drawers of water, which is our history but about what we collectively can create in an economy. One that’s based on technology and innovation, requires people. Let’s bring the hopes and dreams and the skills.”
