Communities in British Columbia are now more culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse, with immigrants accounting for approximately 27 per cent of our population. An additional five percent of the population is made up of indigenous Aboriginal peoples.
Launched in 2009, EmbraceBC provides resources and tools that help citizens of British Columbia further understand the importance of diversity and increase their level of community engagement around multiculturalism and anti-racism. Many of these resources can be ordered for free.
Since 2009, EmbraceBC has funded over 85 projects, engaging more than 12,000 participants across British Columbia.
