Released by James Challman, CCS/File photo
hilliwack Community Services (CCS) is troubled by the recent hate e-mails addressed to valued members of our community. CCS strives to assist Chilliwack to be an inclusive, multi-ethnic community that makes it such a great place in which to live, work and play.
CCS was recently advised that its proposal to the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training under the Welcoming Communities Program was successful. The Ministry has the expectation that as the sponsoring organization of this initiative in Chilliwack we now work with the community to plan and implement activities that increase the community's capacity to support the integration of new immigrants by:
The work is to be
accomplished through a community partnership that is diverse and
crosses sectors, with a broad range of representation: local
government, First Nations and aboriginal organizations, business
sector, post-secondary institutions, public sector, nonprofits,
faith based groups etc.
