A Conference on Multiculturalism hosted by the Multicultural Association

Multiculturalism: The Contribution of Multi Culture to the Socio-Economic Development and Progress of Fort McMurray; Town Since 1985.

In 1985 the wise men of Fort McMurray crafted the Multicultural Association of Fort McMurray courteously since known as MCA. One of MCA greatest achievements is the ability to contribute to people dialoguing on their culture to make Canada greater pleasant place to live. The partnership of MCA with government on hosting Canada day, among other things brings home the role of bringing nations together as Canadians. Much has happened since then to 2011, 26 years later. To contribute to the debate which Europe and America has dismissed as failure, Multiculturalism, we plan to examine the contributions made by multicultural Association to the community of the Fort McMurray.

Discussion will be centred on:
Is culture in its diversity preserved in community development in the Wood Buffalo Region?
How can the corporate world foster Multiculturalism as community welfare tool?
The footprints of culture: Developing the children and youth in our community neighbourhood.
You are invited to attend, share views or ask questions at this conference. So, as a stake holder in the regional Municipality of wood Buffalo come. Please come!!!
