Artists and entertainers from diverse cultural backgrounds came together to celebrate Canadian Multiculturalism Day 2019, in an event titled "Diversity Delight".

Radio Metro Mail (RMM), an infotainment channel broadcast from Toronto, Pace, a local non-profit organization and Alliance of Bangladeshi Canadians jointly organized the event on Tuesday. It was funded by the Canadian government.

The event highlighted the contributions and richness of multicultural diversity. People from all walks of life attended cultural performances, offered by ambassadors from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Nusrat Jahan, chairperson of RMM, addressing the event, said: "We are grateful for the contributions of the performers who have, once again, shown us how we honour our rich cultural mosaic."

Appreciating Radio Metro Mail’s effort in celebrating Canadian Multiculturalism Day, Rima Berns McGown, MPP of Beaches-East York, said: “As a former teacher of diaspora studies at Toronto University, I have often seen that multiculturalism is not fully understood. We need to do more to understand the core values of multiculturalism, by respecting each others' ethnic identities."

Six young Canadians received "RMM Diversity Award 2019" – introduced by RMM from this year – for their contributions and commitment to the community.

It will strengthen connections among Canadians."

Moustafa Makhmoud, executive director of Pace, thanked all participating organizations efforts and said: “By participating in such activities together, we can discover the various cultures that bring Canadian society to life.”
