Goodbye Fort St. James

Goodbye Fort St. James




Hi everyone; I came to Canada in February of 1977, and moved to Fort St. James, B.C. I spent many years here and raised three children.

While working full time, I also went to school to learn English. I did enjoy it.

I would like to say thank you to everyone who supported me in many different ways.

A special thanks goes to my mother as she supported me for many years. I like Canada. It is a great country. The land, the mountains and the lakes are beautiful.

The Government is good here, and helps people get their education and to better themselves and get their dream jobs.

We have an Adult Education Center for everyone who wants to be there and make their dreams come true. The first year they opened (1991), I arrived knowing only basic English.  I worked hard and in 1997 got my grade 12 diploma and I am really proud of myself.

I don’t have the words to thank the staff for all their hard work with me. The small community of Fort St. James is great.

I will miss it and all my friends. I will be leaving Fort St. James in July some time and will be moving to Ottawa.

Please come to visit me at my new home.

Thank you again every one, I will miss you.
