Halton Multicultural Council is a registered charity. We are funded by the federal, provincial and regional governments as well as by generous grants from the United Way, Trillium, and RBC to name a few. While the government sponsors many programs for immigrants there are gaps in services – and HMC relies on individual donations to help cover those gaps.
Specific donations may be dedicated to specific causes and campaigns, like our campaign to help refugee families (see below). General donations are used to support cultural festivals and community projects. Our annual Multiculturalism Day in June is funded by sponsorships and donations and sees many people and cultures come together to share our different traditions, games, entertainment and perspectives. New Years Around the World (January) is an open house at our Speers office that shares the different ways that cultures celebrate their new year. One community project that we are hoping to launch is a community kitchen which will help small local newcomer entrepreneurs to learn about Canadian standards and practices in running their own businesses. We are also always on the lookout for funds to support our youth programming and activities.
Your contributions are greatly valued and appreciated.
