Celebrate Saskatchewan Multicultural Week all November!
Saskatchewan Multicultural Week is to recognize that in 1974, Saskatchewan was the first province to enact multiculturalism legislation. Responsibility for the Act resides with the Ministry of Parks, Culture and Sport.
This campaign allows the people of Saskatchewan to share successful examples of leaders – Multicultural Superheroes – who inspire others through their values, beliefs and actions.

Leaping tall barriers to build bridges for intercultural connections
Activating a power magnet to draw diverse people together for creative innovation
Demonstrating super vision and strength to achieve equality and equity for all
