In September 2014 Heritage Toronto held a panel discussion focusing on Toronto’s diverse cultural heritage. The discussion looked at meaningful ways to weave stories of cultural diversity into the broader narrative of Toronto, as well as discussed challenges and lessons learned. GO TO WEBSITE HERE.

Panelists include Ceta Ramkhalawansingh, City Councillor, Ward 20 Trinity Spadina and past Manager, Diversity Management and Community Engagement, City of Toronto; Tanzina Islam, Project Coordinator, CASSA (Council of Agencies Serving South Asians); Scott Kettles, Executive Director, Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives; Carolyn King, Former Chief, Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation Nation; and Nation Cheong, Director, Youth Initiatives, United Way Toronto.
