FOTO: BHRaja.ca | Bosnian-Canadian Media
Welcome to BHRaja.ca, the primary Bosnian-Canadian Media outlet. The website was launched in 2006 by a group of students in Toronto. It has since grown to be the primary source of information for the Bosnian Diaspora in Canada. In 2015 we added a Facebook page – it was about time. In 2016, a new website was launched to celebrate the 10th anniversary of BHRaja.ca.
We curate a daily dose of news in Bosnian and English. We try to focus on positive and constructive themes with a healthy dose of frivolous and fun content. Our readers can suggest stories by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Community: Bosnians & Herzegovinians in Canada
We are eager to feature all content related to Bosnia & Herzegovina – with a Canadian flavour. Got something to share? Drop us a line.
So, how many Bosnians are there in Canada? Hard to say. The community is a highly segmented one. According to the 2007 Statistics Canada census, there are 21,040 individuals of Bosnian-Herzegovinian origin living in Canada. However, there are 65,306 individuals of Yugoslav origin which translates to a much higher figure. You can read more about the Ethnocultural diversity in Canada here.

The Bosnian Connection
We strive to focus on positive and progressive topics. The current political situation in Bosnia & Herzegovina – sadly – does not fall in this category. Occasional articles on constructive themes from a multicultural perspective may be published. No coverage will be granted to mono-nationalistic parties.
We are a completely independent and self-funded media channel. We are not affiliated with any political parties, religious organizations nor government institutions.
Raja is a ubiquitous term in Bosnia & Herzegovina – and one of many Sarajevo’s slangs – that simply means “the cool people.”
