Make Your Voice Heard
Click here to find your local election web site to learn which ward you live in and about your candidates. You can find information on how and where to vote. Make sure your voice is heard on October 26th in your civic election.
MCoS encourages you to advocate for multiculturalism. Specifically, you can raise the awareness of candidates in your ward that:
- Issues related to multiculturalism are important to you and others
- You make voting decisions in part by considering how platforms reflect multicultural values
MCoS has outlined four multicultural values that inform our five streams of multicultural work. The Saskatchewan Multiculturalism Act (1997) and the Canadian Multiculturalism Act (1985) support these values and streams. Please consider this information when asking questions during this election campaign.
- If elected, how will you support cultural diversity in meaningful ways?
- Do you recognize that there are issues of racism in our communities? What actions do you plan to undertake to address them?
- How will you support building bridges between cultures?
- What actions would you take to make this community welcoming and inclusive for all, including for newcomers and Indigenous people?
