The book illustrates and sheds light on the struggles that we face, and the accomplishments we have made, as multi-cultural women living in Canada

Canada thrives as a diverse country with a very unique culture. The struggles and unrecognized achievements we face as women are just as present today as they were in the past. The Women of the North share their secrets to their successes, the spirited stories of their failures, as well as incredible tips and insights for thriving in our multicultural country. Are you a born and raised Canadian? Are you indigenous to this land? A newcomer to Canada? Do you hear stories of your elders' fight for this land, or their journey to relocate to Canada? This book illustrates the diverse search for identity and belonging each woman faces and the collective spirit she is building among her Northern sisters, the day-to-day grind, and the behind closed doors secrets we face in our nation.
