2016 Conference Theme
Multiculturalism in Canada refers to cultural diversity, thus addressing issues of immigrant integration, cultural identity, racism, religious diversity and linguistic diversity. These issues have been part of a discussion of Canadian identity that began at the time Canada officially became a country in 1867. From the outset, cultural diversity has been an important part of Canadian policy. Education has always been seen as a key to ensuring cultural diversity. What has changed over time is the value and meaning that Canadians have attached to cultural diversity.
