Welcome New Hires to Our Team!

We’ve found our home in the heart of Toronto, but the heart of Little Canada truly lies in the people helping to build it all.  We’re excited to welcome to our team six new Little Canadians with great talent and big ideas! And we discovered that our new hires all have something in common - their love for Canada!  Read up below on our new miniature makers and their unique affections for Canada.

Jessica’s love for Canada lies in the Casa Loma building that has always been close to her heart. She has been going there ever since she was a little girl and loves the interior design and beauty it provides.

Aisha

Aisha is the Accounting and Office Administrator at Little Canada. She has worked as a finance associate for many different companies, even managing her family business for a few years. She is enamoured with the world and loves to travel.  If she could, she would travel all over the world. Over the years Aisha has also developed a love for baking, which she indulges in during her free time.  That’s good news for our Miniature Makers team, as there are more than a few sweet tooth’s in the workshop.

What do you love about Canada?

Living so close to nature is what Aisha loves most about Canada. The diversity and depth of Canada’s landscape, the changing colours on the trees, the sight of water along every drive, and even the squirrels climbing up and down the trees. Aisha comes to Canada from Dubai, which is mostly a desert, so she makes sure to take a moment every day to enjoy the diversity of nature in her new home.
