Learn how you can become more knowledgeable about diversity to strengthen and enrich your organization and community.

The Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan (MCoS) is committed to promoting, fostering, improving and developing multiculturalism in the cultural, economic, social and civil/ political life of Saskatchewan while working to achieve equality of all residents. MCoS is a non-profit charitable provincial organizations cultural organization that provides service and support to multicultural and ethnocultural organizations across Saskatchewan.

MCoS values are rooted in the provincial motto From Many Peoples Strength and the treaty relationships that define our province and expressed as: Respect for diversity; recognition and rejections of racism; intercultural connections and Integration. From these values flow the five streams of multicultural work: cultural continuity, celebration of diversity anti-racism, intercultural connections and Integration. Our education offerings are designed around these themes to help create welcoming and inclusive communities and organizations.

Intercultural Training: Module descriptions

The Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan provides workshops, training, presentations and educational resources for members, educators and the community

  • Our workshops consist of PowerPoint presentations, activities and audio-visual presentations.
  • When you contact us, MCoS will designate an appropriate facilitator for you based on your needs. The facilitator will collaborate with you to customize a workshop designed for your audience.
  • The workshop will be based on our five modules of training, which cover a wide variety of multicultural issues.

MCoS has developed five modules that can be customized for diverse audiences as workshops and consultations. Topics include:

Module 1: Intercultural communications and competenceIntercultural Facilitator Training, Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan, cultural diversity, intercultural, education, anti-racism, racism, multiculturalism, ethnic diversity, culture, ethnicity, awareness, acceptance

We explore our cultural identity, with illustration of culture as an iceberg, how it impacts our intercultural competence, where we are on the intercultural development continuum and how we can move forward to enhanced cultural competence. We will offer strategies for enhancing curiosity and responding to differences.

We will examine:

  • Stereotypes and generalizations and how these shape the lens that we look through at our world
  • Cultural dimensions and build on our self-awareness and taking informed action
  • Colonial challenges and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action

Module 2: Cross-cultural engagement in the communityIntercultural Facilitator Training, Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan, cultural diversity, intercultural, education, anti-racism, racism, multiculturalism, ethnic diversity, culture, ethnicity, awareness, acceptance

Saskatchewan is seeing increasingly diverse population growth largely due to labour market demands. Any intercultural work, including those undertaken inside organizations, should involve Indigenous groups, established immigrants, newcomers, youth and those who do not see themselves belonging in these groups.

The five areas for promising practices for intercultural relations:

  • Relevance & Impact; Diverse Engagement & Dialogue
  • Youth Engagement
  • Labour Market
  • Workplace Equity & Community Access
  • Relationship Building provide a framework for new initiatives

We illustrate these with examples of new projects such as BRIDGES which demonstrate successful intercultural partnership building.

Module 3: Diversity in the workplace

We take a closer look at Diversity in the Workplace in Saskatchewan and the positive impact of diversity on innovation and trade.

We examine the levels of organizational responses to growing diversity with a closer look at:

  • Recruitment, hiring
  • Mentoring/coaching
  • Team building and social effects
  • Performance review
  • Promotion and measuring organizational diversity

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action to the corporate sector in Canada with the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous People provides a reconciliation framework.
