MCoS is proud to announce the launch of its #WelcomeHome150 – Creating Welcoming and Inclusive Communities (WIC) project that strives to facilitate a deeper understanding of Canadian history and set the foundation for a positive future by shared experiences between diverse populations and cultures. MCoS encourages municipalities and corporations, big and small, in Saskatchewan to participate in our initiatives. You can look forward to following tools that are available or under development for the near future:

    • Introduction to BRIDGES (Building Relationships Interculturally through Dialogue and Growing Engagement in Saskatchewan)
    • Introduction to INVOLVE (Integrating Newcomers with Volunteer Opportunities to add Leadership through Education)
    • How to indigenize your organization
    • Going beyond the surface – how to include deeper learning in celebrations of diversity

For more details on the project or to share ideas on how you or your organization can participate in the WIC initiative, please contact:

MP Ralph Goodale announced 19 Saskatchewan-based organizations receiving Canada 150 funding.

      • Read Official News Release for Saskatchewan-based projects that received funding
      • Total funding for these projects amounts to $2,703,085.
      • The Government of Canada’s vision for the 150th anniversary of Confederation includes four major themes: diversity and inclusion, reconciliation with Indigenous peoples, the environment and young people
      • The Canada 150 Fund was created in April 2015 and has a budget of $200 million.
      • The goal of the Canada 150 Fund is to create opportunities for Canadians to participate in local, regional, and national celebrations that contribute to building a sense of pride and attachment to Canada.
      • A limited number of high impact, large-scale projects that are national in scope will also be supported through the Canada 150 Fund as Pan-Canadian Signature Projects.
      • The countdown has begun—there are less than 50 days left until the official start of celebrations for the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
      • We invite all Canadians to take part in countdown activities in person and on social media with the hashtag #Canada150.
      • View all community projects across Canada
      • Participate, Celebrate and Explore
