Multiculturalism - Dr. Lupul to Speak

For a unique, historical perspective on Ukrainians and the Policy of Multiculturalism in Canada, here's an opportunity to hear Dr. Manoly Lupul.   He has a very close perspective on its origins, impact and some personal observations on the legacy of this widely accetped policy.  On Thursday, October 25, 2012, the Ukrainian Canadian Professional and Business Association of Calgary is hosting a dinner meeting with guest speaker! 

Dr. Lupul is Professor Emeritus of the University of Alberta, one of the many minds who contributed to the development of the founding principles of the multiculturalism policy for Canada. Over his career, and in the forty years since the Government of Canada enacted the policy of Multiculturalism, the world has changed significantly.  In fact it is believed that the adoption of this policy in Canada has fundamentally changed how ethnocultural groups are perceived and treated here in Canada, paving the way for change elsewhere.
Come hear how community advocacy, and interactions with policy makers, contributed to Government policy, and how Canada has evolved over time -everything from perceptions of cultural maintenance, inter-cultural communication, integration and race relations.  What an interesting discussion to have with Dr. Manoly Lupul - hope you can attend.
