On Friday, I had a great honour to deliver my speech on “Diversity and Inclusion” to RCMP (Canadian Police) officers at RCMP building in Whitehorse. I felt touched that for nearly 40 minutes, the officers listened to my talk and made efforts to learn what diversity and inclusion means.
On behalf of Canadian Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, Yukon’s Member of Parliament Hon. Larry Bagnell organized a roundtable in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory to seek views of Yukon’s cultural organizations this week on the citizenship study guide. It was wonderful to share thoughts on the behalf of Sikh and Punjabi community of the Yukon.
The MP informed the participating community representatives that the Government of Canada was working on updating the citizenship study guide to ensure it is more inclusive and reflective of Canadian diversity and our indigenous history.
