Multicultural Association of Fort McMurray/Multicultural Association of Wood Buffalo

In 1984, the Secretary of State met with members of cultural communities in Fort McMurray to determine how to meet the needs of the increasingly culturally diverse community in the region. An ad hoc Committee was formed which met once every month to discuss the requirement for a multicultural association. By 1985, the Multicultural Association mandate and future objectives were determined. The Multicultural Association of Fort McMurray (MCA) was granted society status in July. In 2012, the Multicultural Association of Fort McMurray decided that its mandate is inclusive of outlying communities and changed its name to Multicultural Association of Wood Buffalo. The MCA currently runs several successful programs and annual events, which foster an inclusive community and understanding amongst diverse cultures as well as offering much needed resources to newcomers in collaboration with our partners.
