Acceptance and Understanding

Acceptance and understanding of different ethnic, cultural and religious groups starts with a real conversation. By establishing open and honest channels of communication we can create a productive and ongoing dialogue. The goal here is to begin to learn about the different cultural backgrounds of our fellow Canadians.

There’s a great deal of diversity in the Kingston area. All major religions are represented in the city including: Christians, Jews, Muslims, and many others. Our people also come from all corners of the globe. They come from places such as India, South Korea, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. While we may have very different backgrounds we’re united in the belief that Canada offers the best opportunity for us and our families. Therefore, we need to be proud Canadians and therefore follow the values that attracted us to Canada.
