Celebrating 40 years over 40 days!
MOSAIC is forty this year! After four decades of community building and facilitating meaningful participation of newcomers in Canadian society, we have many milestones, videos, and stories to share.
We are commemorating MOSAIC’s 40th anniversary with “40 Days of Celebration”, which begins on Labour Day, September 5 and concludes with our annual fundraising gala – Festival MOSAIC – on October 14.
Please explore our celebration below. Each day, we will reveal another piece of nostalgia in the form of a compelling video, vintage photo, fascinating fact, or invitation to an open house!
Thank You to the MOSAIC Community!
We take stock as we celebrate this milestone anniversary and recognize that our success and our growth over 40 years has been the result of contributions by many individuals, partners, funders and supporters. We wouldn’t be where we are today without the passion and investment of our stakeholder community!
A big thank you and we hope we’ll see you at one of our Open House events, or at Festival MOSAIC when we will raise a toast in celebration!

Today, hundreds of volunteers continue to participate and contribute to the success of MOSAIC. Volunteers have contributed over 10,000 hours each year in a variety of roles including the following:
- Work and Culture Mentors
- Language Centre Assistants
- Event Assistants
- Committees and Training Groups
Today, this program has been replaced with Intercultural Competency Training, which blends on-line components with a face-to-face workshop. The fee-for-service training sessions is part of “MOSAIC Works”, a branch of the Language Centre. IC Training has been delivered to clients such as language schools, and organizations like the David Suzuki Foundation and the Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Click here to learn more.
