How can we become a more united and inclusive community?

UBC Dialogues: North Shore

The North Shore, like other Lower Mainland communities, attracts people from all over the world. In recent decades, significant Chinese, South Asian, Persian and Filipino populations have settled in the area, with many forming cultural communities alongside what previously existed. Although challenges occasionally arise, the resulting cultural mosaic has led to opportunities that don’t exist in other communities. How can we use our cultural differences as a pillar of strength for the broader community? Do current government policies, civil society activities, and societal attitudes contribute to a feeling of unity, or create unnecessary divisions? How can we make the most of our cultural richness?
