Multiculturalism in Canada: A Community Dialogue
Time & Location
About the Event
Canada’s federal multiculturalism policy was adopted in 1971, making Canada the first country in the world to adopt such a policy. Multicultural policies are intended to ensure that all citizens keep their identities, take pride in their ancestry and have a sense of belonging.
Almost 50 years after the adoption of the multicultural policy, Canada is known to be place that embraces diversity of culture; but what is multiculturalism and what does it look like in today’s Canadian context? These are some questions explored in this community dialogue with members of SNAC+ (Support Network for Academics of Colour Plus at the University of Lethbridge).
The speakers will be:
Dr. Olu Awosoga, Board of Governors Teaching Chair
Dr. Glenda Bonifacio, collaborator, RED (Rights, Equity and Diversity) Project
Dr. Gideon Fujiwara, Coordinator, Asian Studies Program
