Multiculturalism grants foster cultural diversity in B.C.

The B.C. government provided $300,000 through the Multiculturalism Grant program to support 121 BC  organizations whose activities promote British Columbia’s rich multicultural heritage, and nurture empathy and inclusion.  The funding is provided by the Ministry of International Trade and Responsible for Asia Pacific Strategy and Multiculturalism for projects or events that promote cultural expression or support  anti-racism activities that challenge discrimination and hate.

Community organizations are the heart of promoting multiculturalism in British Columbia.  They nurture, promote and shape our appreciation of diversity and make our society stronger.  Cultural diversity and increased participation and engagement by all cultures is vitally important to create a strong and vibrant social and economic future for British Columbia.
