The Welcoming and Inclusive Communities (WIC) initiative is a partnership between the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) and the Government of Alberta to support municipalities to implement policies and practices to help overcome issues of racism and discrimination. The goal of the WIC initiative is to create communities where all residents and visitors enjoy a sense of belonging and where diversity adds to the social and economic vibrancy of the community, and improves the quality of life for all residents.
These webpages provide ideas, information and resources to support municipalities who want to take action to be a more inclusive community. Whether your municipality is just starting out, wants to evaluate its existing WIC initiatives or is considering whether or not to join the Canadian Coalition of Municipalities Against Racism and Discrimination, these webpages are for you.
We need your help to keep these pages relevant. Email us if you have examples or resources that would add value or if you notice content that requires updating.
