Speaking notes for Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship: An announcement on the Visible Minority Newcomer Women Pilot

Good morning, everyone. I want to begin by acknowledging that we are on the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Haudenosaunee.

My nephew told me a few weeks ago, he called me very excitedly and said, “this city will never be the same. The Toronto Raptors have made it to the finals.” I said, “no, wait until we win the championship.” He said, “no, it’s good enough that we made the finals.” It’s really good to see that game three resulted in our success and I’m so excited to be back here.
