Edmonton Multicultural Coalition Association (EMCA)

EMCA is a non-profit working with different ethnocultural communities. Coalition values the distinct cultural norms, values, and practices among the ethnocultural communities. Coalition works on community development through capacity building among the ethnocultural communities through implementing Animation Model, and provides leadership and capacity building training and workshops to the Animators. Community animators work with people and groups so that they participate in and manage the communities in which they live. Animators come from the Latin word “animere” which means to breathe life into something. A community animator uses his/her skills and talent to enable people and groups to learn from each other and take action on their needs and aspirations. The All Together Now (ATN) program is the Coalition’s core program and is funded by Family and Community Support Services (FCSS). It is an intercultural and intersectoral initiative bringing together members and leaders from ethno-cultural communities to participate meaningfully in the economic and civic life of their neighborhoods and communities.

Coalition’s mission is to promote multicultural and socio-economic integration through civic engagement to benefit the residents of Edmonton. Our collaboration with ethnocultural community leaders and organizations has enhanced their quality of life, health, and well-being. We are committed to cultivating the capacity for emerging newcomers and refugees who share our vision of an inclusive and equitable society. Coalition strongly believes in the power of cultural exchanges to fight against racism, prejudice, and stereotypes while promoting mutual transformation. That's why Coalition promotes the exchange of traditional cultures among different ethnocultural communities, creating a sense of unity and understanding through organizing different workshops, and events such as Soccer-BBQ, Civic Engagement, Telling Stories Together, etc.
