                            by this larger group from nine organizations in Saskatoon.
                             Interactive discussions focused on Deepening Cultural

                       2010 Ghana Independence Day Celebration
                The Ghanaian- Canadian Association of Saskatchewan celebrated their 2010 Ghana
                Independent day on March 20, 2010 with support from MCoS’ Strategic
                Initiatives. The program brought together people from diverse cultural
                backgrounds to participate in the cultural activities of the evening. It was a truly
                      multicultural event where participants went away with increased
                      understanding of, appreciation and respect for cultural diversity, as
                      well as a collective inspiration to resist oppression as reflected in the
                      Ghanaian national anthem. Participants enjoyed the traditional dishes
                      served, the African drums and the dance music were appreciative for
                      the opportunity to participate in the cultural events.


          Muskoday First Nation Community School: Three Cups of Tea
In this exemplary MEI project, the teacher-librarian at Muskoday First Nation Community School
instigated a school-wide unit of study to Pakistan’s and Afghanistan’s people customs, religion, social and
economic situation. Emphasis was placed on drawing parallels between First Nations and Islamic values
while exploring and appreciating differences to promote understanding towards Muslim Canadians living in
nearby communities.

                           Young students learned about traditional clothing and customs around the world
                           and engaged in interesting discussions about skin and hair colour. The library
                           featured maps and displays highlighting many parts of the world and introducing
                           the concepts of “developing countries”, wealth and inequity at levels appropriate
                           for each grade. After reading One Hen: How One Small Loan Made a Big
                           Difference ideas of responsibility for global sharing and aid were discussed and the
                           Grade 7 class has decided to host a fundraiser and choose a charity that they
                           believe will make a difference.
                            Robert Munsch’s From Far Away allowed students to empathize with immigrants
and refugees, and imagine what it would be like to start new with a new language customs, etc. after the
trauma of war. Students talked about how they would want to be treated as newcomers. All students
enjoyed learning the various expressions of the Golden Rule from many faiths.
The Grade 6 and 7 classes studied the student edition of Three Cups of Tea:
One Man’s Journey to Change the World… One Child at a Time by Greg
Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. They compared and contrasted life in
Pakistani villages with the community of Muskoday as part of a guided
reading activity. To further support this study, a corner of the library was
set up to simulate a home in the village of Korphe, Pakistan. In this setting,
they discussed Islam, the Quran, Allah, Mullahs, Mecca, how and when
Muslims pray. Some students modeled women’s modest dress and hijab.
Resources for further reading were available here.
Students were keenly interested in learning all that was presented to them and the empathy they displayed
was touching. The impact was evident at a recent conference in Saskatoon. Muskoday students displayed
acceptance and understanding in their interactions with Muslim peers in a situation that would have left
them staring and asking questions in the past. They had a great time learning about other people, as well as
learning more about themselves through this MEI supported project.

        Children's Department of Saskatoon Public Library (SPL) developed a "Children of the World"
        booklist. This is a list of stories of children and their experiences in a new culture. Most of the
        stories are about new immigrants to North America. This list also includes a few non-fiction titles
        on refugees and immigration. Books in the list are in English (not quite multilingual as specified
        in my job title), but this can be a good source of readings for new immigrant children and even
        their parents. These books are part of SPL collection, but available to all Saskatchewan
        residents for free through Single Integrated Library System (SILS) or Inter-library loan. If you do
        not know how to get these books, please contact your public library branch.

       Minister Kenney introduced legislation to crack down on crooked immigration consultants
  On June 8, legislation to crack down on crooked immigration consultants who exploit prospective immigrants was introduced in the House
  of Commons by Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney.
  The Cracking Down on Crooked Consultants Act would strengthen the rules governing those who charge a fee for immigration advice, close
  immigration system loopholes currently exploited by crooked consultants, and improve the way in which immigration consultants are
  regulated.
  “While most immigration consultants working in Canada are legitimate and ethical, it is clear that immigration fraud remains a widespread
  threat to the integrity of Canada’s immigration system,” said Minister Kenney. “The Cracking Down on Crooked Consultants Act will better protect
  prospective immigrants from crooked consultants and help safeguard our immigration system against fraud and abuse.”
  The Act would make it a crime for unauthorized individuals to provide immigration advice for a fee. It would also amend the Immigration and
  Refugee Protection Act so that fees for immigration services could only be charged by authorized consultants, lawyers and notaries who are
  members in good standing of a governing body authorized by the Minister. This includes services performed before an application is
  submitted or a proceeding begins, thus closing a loophole in the current framework regulating consultants.
  “Crooked immigration consultants victimize people who dream of immigrating to Canada,” said Minister Kenney. “Worse still, there is
  evidence that these individuals encourage prospective immigrants to lie on their immigration applications, to concoct bogus stories about
  persecution when making refugee claims, or to enter into sham marriages with Canadian citizens and permanent residents. This undermines
  the integrity and fairness of Canada’s immigration system.”
  Accompanying the Minister today was a family featured in a Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) video warning would-be immigrants
  to be wary of immigration fraud.
  The Cracking Down on Crooked Consultants Act would also give the Minister the authority to designate a body to govern immigration consultants
  and establish measures to enhance the government’s oversight of this body.

In addition, the legislation would close another loophole in the current framework which
prevents information sharing. It would allow CIC to disclose information relating to the
ethical or professional conduct of a member of a provincial bar or the Chambre des notaires du
Québec or a member of the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants, the body currently                The body regulating consultants must regulate
governing immigration consultants, to those responsible for governing or investigating that               effectively and must be held accountable for
conduct.                                                                                                    ensuring that their membership provides

                                            City of Saskatoon Research on Racism
The City of Saskatoon has recently published a report based on adult focus group discussions of racism. Available at
http://www.saskatoon.ca/DEPARTMENTS/Community%20Services/Communitydevelopment/Documents/adult_focus_group.pd
f. The purpose was to gather feedback from the target audience about what the City of Saskatoon in collaboration with
community partners can do through action steps to address perceptions of
race relations and racism. The link is also on the MCoS website. It is notable that participants focused on the racism
experienced by First Nations and Métis people in Saskatoon and that they thought that hiring people from groups that often
are the targets of racism in significant decision-making positions at the City level were important recommendations.

heritage. Applications are due April 30 and October 29, 2010. Please visit the website to see the grants available to
organizations and communities under the Building Pride pilot program. http://www.tpcs.gov.sk.ca/buildingpride
