How can we become a more united and inclusive community?

Event Details

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.
