We are inviting the whole community to gather in celebration of Victoria's diversity.

During this inspiring multicultural event, we will welcome our immigrants & refugees building bridges and making meaningful connections with each other.

Calling all immigrants & refugees regardless of their arrival date to Canada: don't miss this opportunity to connect with locals and long established immigrants in the community.

Together, making Victoria a more welcoming & inclusive community for all!

This is a family friendly event: KIDS & YOUTH activities throughout the day (including friendly soccer games and other sports, storytelling, kids’ corner, etc.)
