Nominations are now open for the 14th Annual Fraser Valley Cultural Diversity Awards.

The Fraser Valley Cultural Diversity Awards started in 2003 to recognize the best practices of organizations and individuals that embrace the diversity in our community.

Each year, the awards receive nominations for businesses, programs, initiatives, schools and leaders that work toward building an inclusive community, providing their clients and customers with accessible environments, and having workforces reflective of their community. Nominees from Abbotsford, Mission, Langley and Chilliwack that exemplify the spirit of cultural diversity are encouraged to apply.
