BC People : Portraits of Diversity
Date posted: June 27, 2018
Today is Canadian Multiculturalism Day! It’s an opportunity to celebrate diversity and our commitment to democracy, equality and mutual respect. It’s also a time to appreciate the contributions of the various multicultural groups and communities to Canadian society.
British Columbia is the most ethnically diverse province in Canada. Almost 30% of BC’s four million people emigrated from another country in their lifetimes. BC People: Portraits of Diversity in BC was a storytelling project highlighting the cultural, racial and ethnic diversity in our province.
Visit the BC People website to meet the people who participated in this project. You can read the book and listen to podcasts that accompany this video.
