Multiculturalism / Anti-Racism

A Complement of Initiatives

The Social Planning Council is involved in a number of multicultural and immigration initiatives. These include: hosting and organizing events and workshops as part of the Thompson Okanagan Respect Network; hosting the Vernon Local Immigration Partnership Council; and overseeing the implementation of Vernon’s Settlement and Immigration Strategy.

The Social Planning Council has also made a commitment to the Truth and Reconciliation process and earmarks project funding to ensure an Indigenous perspective in the development of local strategies and initiatives.  Our organization acknowledges the harms and mistakes of the past, and dedicates ourselves to move forward in partnership with Indigenous communities in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.

A monthly multicultural and immigration newsletter is distributed free to anyone interested in  current multicultural events, resources and workshops.  Follow the links to read past issues or subscribe online free.
