Canadian Government Invests Over $50,000 In Brampton Association
The Canadian government is investing over $50,000 in a Brampton association.
The parliamentary secretary to the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism Gary Anandasangaree announced that the government will be investing $59,000 in the Brampton Tamil Seniors Association’s project to create a bond between the South Asian and Indigenous community.
The Brampton Tamil Seniors Association is a non-profit organization that has mission to create recreational and educational activities that will improve the lives of seniors.
Anandasangaree announced the investment on behalf of the Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism Pablo Rodriguez.
“I am thrilled that our government recognizes the importance of projects such as the Brampton Tamil Seniors Association’s initiative, which help remove barriers and improve the socio-economic outcomes of Canadians, including racialized communities, Indigenous Peoples and religious minorities,” says Anandasangaree.
The funding, provided through the Community Support, Multiculturalism, and Anti-Racism Initiatives Program (CSMARI), will bring together seniors of South Asian heritage and local Indigenous community members to learn about each other’s history, heritage, and traditions. The CSMARI supports community development, anti-racism initiatives, and engagement projects. The initiative hopes to promote diversity and inclusion by encouraging interaction among community groups, promoting positive interaction between different communities and supporting the expression of Canadians’ multicultural identities.
The Canadian government aims to promote equality, mutual understanding and greater inclusion in Canadian society with this investment.
“Diversity is one of Canada’s greatest strengths. Projects that celebrate our multicultural heritage play a vital role in society. We are proud that programs like this help communities promote openness and inclusion among their multitude of cultures,” says Minister Rodriguez.
