For Sia Maro, Canada is a land of freedom and opportunity.
Now an administrative assistant in the Toronto Western Management Office, Sia originally came to Canada for university. She saw something unique in this country, and eventually made it her home.
“You are the captain of your ship and you drive that ship to your own success,” Sia says. “You define what your own success is and Canada gives you that opportunity to do that. I like that.”
You are listening to UHN Home, where we're telling stories to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday.

They all work at the nation's largest research hospital: the University Health Network.
