Mister Canada, Papiben, Advocates for First Nations Empowerment

By  //  February 21, 2023

Papiben, winner of Mister Global Canada, is set to represent his country at the 8th edition of the world’s largest male beauty competition, Mister Global.

He was chosen for the competition because of his skills, unique style, and his passion for Canada. He has chosen a costume, the Wood Runner costume, that represents the spirit of Canada and its values of inclusivity, collaboration, and freedom. The Wood Runners, not native to Canada, formed partnerships with First Nations communities, reflecting Canadian values of coming together and breaking down barriers.

Papiben plans to use his platform to raise awareness about the struggles of First Nations communities and empower them. He hopes to send a message of unity, inclusivity, and empowerment and inspire others to support and empower marginalized communities.

Benjamin Filiatrault, the current representative of Canada at the Mister Global pageant, has been using his platform to promote positivity, creativity, and the importance of supporting marginalized communities. He has raised awareness about the issues faced by First Nations communities in Canada.

“As the representative of Canada at Mister Global, I aim to showcase the beauty of my country and give a voice to those who have been marginalized for too long,” said Papiben. Through his work, Papiben has become a sought-after speaker and ambassador for the organization, using his platform to make a difference in the world and continue to promote his message of empowerment and positive change.

The 8th edition of Mister Global is set to take place in Chiang Mai, Thailand, with Papiben joining 40 other contestants from around the world.

The competition will feature a series of events, including a national costume show, a swimwear competition, and an interview with the judges. The winner will be crowned Mister Global and have the opportunity to use his platform to raise awareness about issues that matter to him.

Papiben is not just a model; he is also the founder of an organization that empowers marginalized communities. The organization provides education, resources, and support to those in need. With his platform as Mister Global Canada, Papiben is determined to raise awareness about his cause and continue making a positive impact in the lives of others.

Papiben’s journey to Mister Global is a testament to his passion, determination, and commitment to positively impacting the world. As the new face of Canada, he’s ready to take the stage and show the world what he’s made of. The competition may be fierce, but with his talent, charisma, and dedication to his cause, Papiben is poised to make a lasting impression on the world.

“In my journey to Mister Global, I hope to showcase the diversity and beauty of Canada and give a voice to those who have been silenced for too long,” said Papiben. “I want to inspire others to support and empower marginalized communities, and to promote positivity and creativity in everything that I do.” As he prepares to represent Canada on an international stage, he is also promoting his organisation’s work.

Visually Impactful, which focuses on giving a voice to marginalized communities in mainstream media, has been gaining traction in Canada and other parts of the world. Through his participation in Mister Global, he hopes to inspire more people to support his cause and to become agents of positive change.

The national costume show is a highlight of the Mister Global competition, and Papiben’s costume has generated a lot of interest. The Wood Runner costume, with its intricate design and unique features, is a symbol of Canada’s spirit and values. Papiben is proud to wear the costume and to represent his country in the competition.

“I chose the Wood Runner costume because it represents the essence of Canada,” said Papiben. “Canada is a country that embraces diversity and values the contribution of all its people.

The Wood Runners were not originally from Canada, but they chose to coexist with the First Nations communities and form partnerships. This reflects the Canadian values of breaking down barriers and coming together.”

Papiben’s costume sends a strong message of unity and inclusivity. He believes that the costume will inspire others to embrace diversity and to work towards a more inclusive society. Through his participation in Mister Global, he hopes to promote these values and to make a positive impact on the world.
