Canadian Multiculturalism Day at the Museum

June 27 10:00 am to 6:00 pm

Our Canadian community is a tapestry woven from a diverse collection of cultural threads, and Rossland's history presents rich examples of the varied make-up of our collective identity. Explore Indigenous Basketry of our region, the history of Chinese culture in Rossland, as well as components of early settler life that have shaped our community through to today. On June 27th, admission for Canadian Multiculturalism Day at the museum will be free, though donations are always welcome.

And five percent identify as Indigenous. The most ethnically diverse province in Canada, BC welcomes nearly 40,000 new immigrants every year.
