Provincial government makes significant investment to promote diversity and inclusion

31

Since we live in a multicultural city it makes sense to promote diversity and the BC government is doing just that.

The BC government is combating racism and promoting inclusivity and multiculturalism with a $250,000 investment to the BC Anti-racism Network.

Via release, Ravi Kahlon, Parliamentary Secretary for Sport and Multiculturalism “Today’s announcement demonstrates our government’s firm commitment to advancing multiculturalism in our province and providing a better life for all British Columbians. I’m looking forward to working with the members of the Multicultural Advisory Council on anti-racism initiatives. Together, we will combat racism and strengthen cross-cultural understanding.”

As a result of this sum of money, four other cities will also be selected to get on board with the network.

Today’s funding announcement in the BC Anti-racism Network also coincides with the addition of new members to the Province’s Multicultural Advisory Council.
