News from SFU Dialogue on Multiculturalism

The SFU Centre for Dialogue recently sponsored a discussion on The Business Case for Multiculturalism: The Future is Now. The city of Kamloops, BC serves as a pilot site to test whether the dialogue format is effective in increasing local engagement on multiculturalism issues in smaller communities in BC. A Kamloops Daily News, February 17, 2006 article about the dialogue reads: “Developing a work environment inclusive of all cultures is one way Kamloops businesses can weather a shortage of skilled labour,” said SFU Chancellor Emeritus and chairman of HSBC Investments Canada. Part of Multiculturalism Week 2006, this dialogue was sponsored by Kamloops Immigrant Services, Simon Fraser University’s Dialogue Programs and the BC Ministry of Attorney General, Settlement and Multiculturalism Division.
