RESPECT LIVES HERE: Diversity in the Shuswap

Shuswap Immigrant Services Society is committed to helping make Salmon Arm and the Shuswap a safe and welcoming environment for newcomers. We want to be part of communities that respect and embrace all residents, including immigrants and refugees, Indigenous peoples, and people of colour.

We celebrate diversity through initiatives such as our annual Gathering Together Multicultural Festival and our participation in networks like the Thompson-Okanagan Respect Network and the Province of BC’s Organizing Against Racism and Hate (OARH) initiative. We are also working to become part of the new Resilience BC Anti-Racism Network.

Special Dates:

June is International Pride Month

June 20: World Refugee Day

June 21: National Indigenous Peoples Day

June 27: Canadian Multiculturalism Day

We acknowledge and honour these opportunities for celebration, learning, and reflection.

The City of Salmon Arm has demonstrated its commitment to diversity and inclusion by releasing its Inclusivity Statement.
