Citizenship and Immigration Canada is inviting nominations for the annual Paul Yuzyk Award for Multiculturalism. The award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to promoting multiculturalism in their communities across Canada. It also commemorates the late Senator Paul Yuzyk and his legacy in establishing multiculturalism as one of the fundamental characteristics of Canadian heritage and identity.

The winner will choose an eligible, not-for-profit organization to receive a $20,000 grant.

Canadians are being encouraged to nominate candidates; visit www.cic.gc.ca/english/multiculturalism/paulyuzyk/index.asp
