Executive Director's Message
The Moose Jaw Multicultural Council (MJMC) has been operating as an umbrella organization for various cultural groups (e.g. Scandinavian Club, Jamaican Club, etc.) as well as providing settlement and language services for refugees and immigrants in Moose Jaw and area for almost four decades..
Our website outlines the many services we offer to our newcomer clients. We also provided such activities as cultural sensitivity presentations to interested groups and organizations in a wide range of sectors. You will find many programs and services on this site that aid refugees and immigrants in becoming fully participating members of Canadian society. The MJMC's ultimate goal is to ensure that our services provide newcomers with the skills, educational and experience required to share the same rights, responsibilities, privileges and opportunities as their Canadian born counterparts.
There are many people and organizations that help us carry out the work we do. The volunteer Board of Directors oversees strategic governance and facilitates community engagement. Our government and community funders provide financial support to help us provide the services we offer. Many volunteers give their time selflessly to the organization. Finally, the MJMC staff demonstrates ongoing commitment and dedication. Their work ethic and passion ensures that our clients get the best possible service and are equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in Canada. The work of these dedicated people is shaping the cultural fabric of Moose Jaw while simultaneously helping people build new lives in our safe and beautiful city. Diversity enriches us all.
