The Intercultural city aims at building its policies and identity on the explicit acknowledgement that diversity can be a resource for the development of the society.

The first step is the adoption (and implementation) of strategies that facilitate positive intercultural encounters and exchanges, and promote equal and active participation of residents and communities in the development of the city, thus responding to the needs of a diverse population. The Intercultural integration policy model is based on extensive research evidence, on a range of international legal instruments, and on the collective input of the cities member of the Intercultural Cities programme that share their good practice examples on how to better manage diversity, address possible conflicts, and benefit from the diversity advantage.

This section offers examples of intercultural approaches that facilitate the development and implementation of intercultural strategies.

The Montreal Intercultural Council (CiM) advises, and issues opinions to, the City Council and the executive committee on all issues of interest to the cultural communities and on any another matter relating to intercultural relationships. It seeks opinions and receives and hears requests and suggestions from any person or group relating to intercultural relationship issues. It carries out or commissions studies and research that it deems useful or necessary to the exercise of its functions.

In recent years the CiM has taken an active part in many projects, such as the City’s work on racial profiling (2010), the Symposium on Interculturalism (2011), and many other projects on various issues such as equality in employment, social inclusion, the municipality’s management of minority places of worship and the Montreal development plan.

Activities:

  • Training days on ethno-cultural diversity with executives and elected municipal representatives;
  • Participation in colloquies, conventions and public consultations;
  • Participation in events held by ethno-cultural communities;
  • Municipal forum on the participation of ethno-cultural artists and communities in the cultural life of Montreal;
  • Municipal forum on the problem of racial profiling in Montreal.

The Intercultural Council is run in partnership with all the departments of the Montreal city authority.
