March is Multiculturalism Month

Christopher Mitchelmore, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, announced Multiculturalism Week, previously observed annually in March, is now extended through the full month.

Multiculturalism Month celebrates the province’s rich diversity of cultures and welcoming communities.

As part of the celebrations, many organizations and communities hold a variety of events such as meet-and-greets and intercultural exchanges.

One of the many highlights of Multiculturalism Month is the annual Sharing Our Cultures celebration, with events held throughout the province. This year’s events will be held in Gander, Corner Brook, Grand Falls-Windsor, Happy Valley-Goose Bay, and St. John’s.
