Statement on Multiculturalism Day

June 27, 2016 – Toronto – YPSWA joins Canadians across the country today to mark Multiculturalism Day, a day of inclusion and diversity.

Canada was the first country in the world to adopt a policy of multiculturalism 45 years ago, Canada has shown time and time again that a country can be stronger not in spite of its differences, but because of them.

“As Canadians, we appreciate the immense freedom we have to show pride in our individual identities and ancestries. No matter our religion, where we were born, what colour our skin, or what language we speak, we are equal members of this great country”: said Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau.

YPSWA is proud that Canada’s national fabric is vibrant and varied, woven together by many cultures and heritages, and underlined by a core value of respect. Multiculturalism is our strength, as synonymous with Canada as the Maple Leaf.
