Reconciling Multiculturalism in Today's Canada


In early 2021, CIUS announced an international symposium to discuss the changing nature, meanings, and applications of Canada’s complicated relationship with its own diversity in post-Truth and Reconciliation times. In partnership with two fellow University of Alberta institutions -- the Marcelle and Louis Desrochers Institute for Heritage Studies and Transdisciplinary Research on Francophonies (IMELDA) and the Kule Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) -- CIUS hosted several days of thoughtful and respectful dialogue amongst different stakeholders, scholars, various peoples, and cultural groups about the legacy of Canada’s multiculturalism and its place in today’s Canadian society. The event both addressed and offered some answers to the overarching question of what it means to be Canadian and share (a) national identity/ies.
