Share Your Story

Contribute to Confluence, MCA’s Quarterly Online Newsletter

The Multicultural Association is looking for you to contribute a story, photo, or question concerning everyday experiences of multiculturalism, inclusion, diversity, and equality. Your contributions are essential in the success of Confluence, MCA’s quarterly online newsletter launching this winter. The newsletter will explore the cultural intersections that shape and shift us in our everyday lives. All of us- whether recently arrived, with roots that go back several years, many generations, or to a time before Canada have a story to tell and experiences to share.

We would love to hear from you. Please review the following categories and submit your piece to us at executivedirector@multiculturefm.org

  • Multicultural Stories: Do you have a story to share with us?
  • Travel To My Country: Do you have a story about visiting your homeland? What was the experience like? What has changed? How did it impact you? Submit your story!
  • Friends Across Borders: Stories about how you met your friends best from another culture across schools in our region.
  • My Favourite Cultural Dish: Do you have a family recipe for a delicious cultural dish? Send it in for all to enjoy!
  • Photo Gallery: What does multiculturalism mean to you? Do you have a photo that captures diversity, inclusion, and equality? Send your photo and caption in!
  • Q&A: Are you experiencing a challenge at work, at a restaurant, or in your interactions with others that has to do with multiculturalism, equality, or inclusion? How did you deal with the situation? Do you have questions about your rights when it comes to these situations? Or do you experience challenges parenting in Canada’s diverse society? Share your questions and experiences with us and receive answers from experts!

If you have a story you would like to contribute it can be as short as a sentence, as long as 500 words, or maybe your story is best told with a picture and a caption-great! Email your contribution to us at executivedirector@multiculturefm.org. Sharing stories and experiences with others is what Confluence is all about.
