The Canadian Multicultural Education Foundation (CMEF) was founded in 1990 by 10 citizens committed to supporting and strengthening multiculturalism in Canada. Though Canadians have seen great change since CMEF’s founding in 1990, the need for such an organization has only increased and CMEF’s programming has developed in response to these new realities. It is useful to reflect on where we have been; it is just as useful to plan where we want to go. Herewith are the adopted vision, mission and goals to guide the direction of the Foundation.
