Multiculturalism: Remember our Past, Envision our Future

It’s been 40 years since the Saskatchewan passed the first multiculturalism act in North America. Join us to share your stories and ideas about the past, present and future of multiculturalism in Saskatchewan.

We will also officially launch the WeAreSk PSAs which feature stories of integration across Saskatchewan. This is a partnership between seven organizations: The Aboriginal Friendship Centres of Saskatchewan (AFCS), Conseil Culturel Fransaskois (CCF), the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan (MCoS), the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative, the Saskatchewan German Council (SGC), the Saskatchewan Organization for Heritage Languages (SOHL), and the Ukrainian Canadian Congress – Saskatchewan Provincial Council (UCC-SPC).
