Swede visits Toronto for Canadian ideas in integration
He was a like child in a candy shop. For Maroun Aoun, CEO of IFS or the Swedish Association of Ethnic Entrepreneurs, Canada’s largest city presented a sensory overload of things to take back home.
“Toronto is a beautiful picture of diversity. And it is not just confined to the subway. I see it everywhere; in offices, in businesses and in homes with mixed-race families,” said Maroun, not too worried that his quest for diversity and integration ideas was gnawing into holiday time with family while on a private visit. He was busy checking out the various initiatives in the Greater Toronto Area that aim to put the region’s diversity to work.
