One of the great things about Canada is that we can practice our customs and traditions freely if they don’t fundamentally violate Canadian values. Canada is a country dedicated to multiculturalism and diversity in everything it represents. It was founded on a belief that new Canadians bring with them a valuable part of the Canadian puzzle. We believe that the rich and diverse cultural past of our ancestors should be celebrated and remembered.
The Colours of Kingston Foundation believes strongly in the importance of all the various groups that make up our community. There’s no reason we can’t celebrate the customs and traditions of our ancestral homelands in our homes and communities. Those traditions can and should be handed down for generations to come. Canada is a rich mosaic of cultural diversity that makes us stronger and the envy of the world. We also have a strong Canadian value system which enables so many different cultures to live and work together without the discord found in many other places.
