Welcome to The Canadian Multicultural Education Foundation

Please Note:  We are having some problems with our website. Until we are able to fix the problem, we recommend that you view the website in Google Chrome.

Canadian Multicultural Education Foundation is a non-profit society founded in 1990 to promote public awareness of the opportunities and benefits of an evolving multicultural society in Canada.

We hope this website will assist Canadians to deepen and broaden their understanding of multiculturalism. Included are articles and events of interest to the multiculturalism education community and links to other organizations doing similar work.  Your suggestions and input are welcome.
