Each year, The Squamish Multifaith Association hosts a Unity in Diversity Dinner, recognizes March 21st International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, collaborates with the local branch of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to coordinate the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive in Squamish District and supports the Annual July 01 Multicultural Day at Totem Hall.
Unity in Diversity Dinner
The annual event celebrates our common unity while recognizing the richness of our diversity. Guest speakers are asked to present on a topic of common interest.
BC Thanksgiving Food Drive (BCTFD)
The BCTFD Project is a province-wide initiative that helps feed thousands across BC who rely on food banks for their basic nutritional needs. The food drive in Squamish is coordinated jointly between the Squamish Multifaith Association and the local Branch of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Working alongside the Squamish Food Bank and a host of wonderful community volunteers, donation bags are delivered during the third week of September to various neighborhoods in Squamish. The bags are picked up on Saturday of the week, sorted and stored at Squamish Food Bank. In 2016 7250+lbs of food was collected.
Multicultural Day July 01 Totem Hall
Multicultural Day is an initiative of elders of the Squamish Nation and has been supported in providing a community feast for the past 24 years by members of the Sikh and Baha’i Communities. Since the formation of the Squamish Multifaith Association the coordination of the event has been facilitated through the association and its membership.
