York Regional Police is a proud partner in a region that celebrates its rich cultural, ethnic, religious, and linguistic diversity within a regional municipality where residents trace their ancestries to virtually all corners of the world. Within this microcosm of the world, York Regional Police has, for the past 15 years, commemorated the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in partnership with our multicultural community in celebration of our diversity while collectively re-affirming our commitment to the eradication of racial discrimination. Our communities have always responded with overwhelming support as these events have showcased a diverse mosaic of food, culture, art, and entertainment.
Through our continued collaborations with our communities, we hope to one day to see the permanent eradication of racism, prejudice and hatred in all of its ugly manifestations, as we collectively strive to build community resilience, social cohesion, and peaceful co-existence in communities that personify the principles of human rights and social justice through expressions of courtesy, dignity, respect, and equality for all people each and every day.
As we prepare for this year’s event themed “Celebrating The Strength of Our Diversity”, we would be honoured to have you join us at our event on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at the Markham Event Centre located at 95 Duffield Dr, Markham, Ontario. Please feel free to extend this invitation to family and friends. Admission is free and all are welcome!
