He noted that the year 2021, marks half a century of Canada’s adoption of the policy of Multiculturism. This policy was integrated into the Canadian Multiculturalism Act afterward.

While expressing delight in Canada’s inclusivity of all cultures, the Prime Minister stressed the fact that the journey to inclusivity is yet to be completed. He noted the presence of systematic racism and discrimination towards minorities, indigenous people, and racialized groups in Canadian society. These differences have been only enhanced in the Covid19 times, he expressed.
