The North Shore, like other Lower Mainland communities, attracts people from all over the world. In recent decades, significant Chinese, South Asian, Persian and Filipino populations have settled in the area, with many forming cultural communities alongside what previously existed. Join us an our expert panel as we discuss how can we make the most of our cultural richness?
