The Canadian Multicultural Education Foundation (CMEF) was incorporated in Alberta in 1990. It is a non-profit volunteer society founded by a small group of veteran educators, communicators and advocates for multiculturalism and human rights. CMEF aims to promote public awareness of the opportunities and benefits of an evolving multicultural society in Canada, and foster individual and community initiatives and support for policies and programs that serve all Canadians.
CMEF pursues two broad strategies to achieve its mission:
It fosters and develops community education activities.
It works to develop a collaborative network across Canada of organizations with compatible interests and objectives.
The organization remains small and tightly focused, taking on a few carefully chosen projects and strategic partnerships each year.
The Canadian Multicultural Education Foundation (CMEF) promotes multiculturalism in Canada by providing programs that improve understanding between people of different cultures and that renew discussions about the direction of multiculturalism in Canada
The CMEF Board of Directors creates policies that guide the organization and that support our office staff in program delivery.
CMEF is seeking Board Members who share our vision and who wish to join us in working to realize it.
