Next week people living in Prince Rupert will have the opportunity to celebrate the region’s multicultural diversity and richness when on Sunday, June 26th the North Coast Immigrant and Multicultural Service Society will be hosting Diversity Day at the Rupert Square Mall in celebration of Canadian Multiculturalism Day.

Canadian Multiculturalism Day, which is held every June 27th, gives Canadians a chance to celebrate the diversity of the country, and to appreciate the contributions of the variety of multicultural groups and communities in our society. The day of recognition was first established in 2002, and was first celebrated on June 27, 2003. Canadian Multiculturalism Day is one of four “Celebrate Canada Days”, the other being National Aboriginal Day, St. Jean Baptise Day and Canada Day.

To coincide with Canadian Multiculturalism Day, the North Coast Immigrant and Multicultural Service Society, who are a non-profit organization with a mission to join with the community to celebrate the different cultures in the region, and to provide access to services to immigrants, will be hosting a gather in the Rupert Square Mall, on the upper level close to the Royal Bank from two to four pm.

The gathering will include music, food, socializing and guest speakers. Jane Dickson from the Affiliation of Multicultural Societies and Service Agencies of BC and Sasa Loggin from the Skeena Diversity Society will be the persons speaking, and will be discussing multiculturism and immigration.

Everyone in the community from every different ethnic back round is encouraged to come down for the celebration.
