Canadian multiculturalism is a cornerstone of our Canadian heritage and identity. Canada is a country woven from many people, many cultures, and each contributing their thread, their cultural values, to strengthening our sense of purpose and our unity in our diversity.

Sharing this common bond of diversity and multiculturalism, the CEC and CEMA invite all to come together in our diversity, bridge our cross-cultural ties, and thereby continue to strengthen this great country of ours – Canada – for the betterment of all.
