Ya Canada! expresses ‘true love and devotion’ of Arab Canadians!
The latest edition of O Canada sounds a lot different from the English and French versions Canadians ears are used to. But the patriotic spirit, pride and values behind Canada’s national anthem are every bit as present in Ya Canada, the Arabic version launched by the Canadian Arab Institute, a reflection of the community’s love for this country.
Presented as a gift to Canada on its 148th birthday and the 50th anniversary of our flag, the the unofficial anthem also plays a part in the Canadian Arab Institute’s “Your Voice” campaign, a non-partisan attempt at voter education and motivation. The campaign aims to motivate Canadian Arabs across the country to better engage in the democratic process and practice its citizenship in the lead-up to the upcoming federal election.
