Paula Simons - 2016 Keynote


Each year CMEF presents Harmony Brunch to commemorate the
International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

The Harmony Brunch is an event anticipated by members of many cultural and religious communities in and around Edmonton. It brings together a rich cross-section of community leaders to explore issues focused on strengthening Canada’s multicultural fabric. It also encourages everyone to renew their commitment to ending racial discrimination in their personal and professional lives.
