Mehdi Seoudi, who welcomes immigrants to CAFI in Dieppe, feels inspired when he exits the film Single. He hopes the evening has sensitized the community to do more about the integration of the newcomers.
You have to accept them, include them, and make them feel at home so that they reveal their inner richness., do you think.
He said immigrants are determined and deserve fair treatment.
« We just give them a chance and that’s enough for them to show their best. »
Mahdi Soudi encourages the Greater Moncton community to contact CAFI in order to participate in the twinning program, which allows Canadians and newcomers to meet.

Director Paul Tom spoke to the audience after the performance with a tear in his eye.
I feel like there is a community here that feels the problems and is therefore able to straighten up its sleeves in the face of an issue like immigration and accompanying underage immigration., he explains.
Paul Tom wants his film to show that immigrants, whether children or not, have the ability to succeed and rebuild themselves if the community that welcomes them is also helpful and supportive.
Alan Arcaza, one of the protagonists of the movie, feels proud to watch it Single in Moncton for the first time, having previously lived nearby, in Gagetown, as part of his military training. He left Burundi in 2008 with his two older brothers when he was just 15 years old.
He wants his history to be inspired by other immigrants like himself and not be afraid of confidence, daring, and dream without limits. But he also has a message to deliver to the communities.
