Tim Horton’s Commercial – Welcome to Canada

This is a heart-warming commercial that I really like. I’m sure a lot of newcomers have been in the shoes of the guy in the video, waiting at an airport to reunite with their families.



About Diana Massimi

As a newcomer in Canada, I've had some really great experiences. Every day, I continue to learn and adapt to my new country. As I've just passed the three year mark as a permanent resident, I'll soon be applying for citizenship. It's an exciting step to take and I'm looking forward to being "officially" Canadian. This blog is to share what I've learned so far and my everyday experiences and feelings being a newcomer to this country. More than anything I'll be looking forward to hearing from other newcomers and exchanging impressions and anecdotes about our new life in Canada. Feel free to share and ask questions, I'm also always happy to help a fellow newcomer!

  1. It’s interesting that Tim Horton’s is really trying to reflect what is a normal occurrence in Canadian society. I can definitely relate to this commercial. Just curious, how was was your impression when you first saw it?

    • Yeah, they are trying and that was a good example of it. The first time I saw this commercial I actually felt emotional. It brought back memories of my own arrival and the way I felt, knowing I was here to stay.

  2. I always liked this commercial. Did you feel overwhelmed by the snow and cold when you came to Canada?

  3. Since I had already been in canada to study and to visit, it wasn’t a big surprise; however, I am always overwhelmed by the snow and cold, especially by the time February arrives!

  4. I always have to fight back the tears at this one.
