North Vancouver-Lonsdale MLA Bowinn Ma says multiculturalism grant funding will help local organizations fight systemic racism throughout North Vancouver. This year, priority was given to projects addressing anti-Indigenous, anti-Asian and anti-Black racism.

“North Vancouver is an incredible community, but racism and discrimination can happen here as well,” said Bowinn Ma, MLA for North Vancouver-Lonsdale. “The harm it causes is real and we each have a role to play in confronting it. I’m deeply grateful to these North Shore organizations for taking on this important work.”

Multiculturalism Grant funding is provided to non-profit and charitable organizations for projects that build intercultural interaction, trust and understanding, or challenge racism, hate and systemic barriers. MLA Bowinn Ma said that through these projects, people across B.C. will soon have improved access to tools and resources to help them learn about the diverse culture they live.
