“University researchers dedicate their lives to solving the  world’s problems and have a huge societal imprint,” says Mona  Nemer, Vice-President, Research at the University of Ottawa.  ”Sometimes the  final breakthrough takes generations, but along  the way these  researchers are improving the health, happiness  and richness  of life for millions of people around the globe, and  they are  training future generations of global citizens and  leaders.”

“I wanted it (Canadian Citizenship) so badly for one reason: Canada, or at least Toronto, was home. It was the fifth country I had lived in but the one that welcomed me the most. I loved its liberal society and what was then its neutral stance in the Middle East.”
