Ontario is supporting over 420 not-for-profit organizations to help more newcomers and multicultural communities like Cambridge to participate in the civic, cultural, social and economic life of the province by providing support through the Multicultural Community Capacity Grant Program.
In Cambridge the province is supporting organizations such as:
“Ontario benefits when newcomers and multicultural communities are able to fully participate in our society without barriers,” said Kathryn McGarry, MPP Cambridge.
“Kinbridge, the Portuguese Club and the Islamic Centre of Cambridge all recognize how much newcomers and multicultural groups enrich local communities. Together, we are building a strong economy and a socially-cohesive society.”
To build on the success of the program, a new capital stream will help organizations plan long-term initiatives that will improve services to Ontario’s communities.
Ontario is also supporting multicultural communities through the new Multicultural Journalism Fund, a three-year pilot project that will aim to increase coverage of local, regional and national issues from diverse perspectives.
Supporting diverse and inclusive communities is part of the government’s plan to support care, create opportunity and make life more affordable during this period of rapid economic change. The plan includes free prescription drugs for everyone under 25, and 65 or over, through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, and free preschool child care from 2 ½ to kindergarten.
