The goal of the Welcoming and Inclusive Communities (WIC) initiative is to create communities where diversity adds to the social and economic vibrancy of the community, and improves the quality of life for all residents. WIC works closely with the Come Together Alberta (CTA) initiative. CTA aims to support the attraction, retention and integration of newcomers, and the engagement of marginalized populations in the workforce.
These webpages provide ideas, information and resources to support municipalities who want to embrace diversity.
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 though. Email us if you have examples or resources that would add value or if you notice content that requires updating.
