Canadian Multiculturalism Day

On November 13, 2002, the Government of Canada, by Royal Proclamation, designated June 27 of each year as Canadian Multiculturalism Day. This significant day is an opportunity for Canadians to celebrate our country's rich cultural mosaic and recognize the valuable role Canadians from all backgrounds play in helping to build vibrant and prosperous communities that benefit everyone. Multiculturalism Day is intended to encourage individuals to reflect on our shared commitment to democracy, equality and mutual respect.
