The Diverstiy Empowers Cities Newsletter features top news stories from local ethnic media that matters.
It's cross-culturally translated by MIREMS consultants across Canada, and works towards MIREMS' mandate to make language barriers transparent and ensuring diverse voices are part of the discourse.
And also includes additional resources, commentary from Ontario and BC candidates and special coverage from MIREMS.
While the Multiculturalism Act was becoming law in 1988, MIREMS’ predecessor also first began working towards celebrating Canada’s diversity by making language barriers transparent. Now imbedded into the fabric of our national policy, multiculturalism has become an integral part of city development and growth. As cities and municipalities across the country gear up to elect new officials this fall, MIREMS is bringing the opinions and ideas shared by multicultural communities with their ethnic media to a larger audience.
These voices are present and powerful; they discuss municipal issues in their mother tongue. MIREMS’ careful cross-cultural translation makes them accessible.
