“I am Different Because…”

On Nov. 16, 2018, tell us what makes you different!

RACIDE invites you to participate in the “I am Different Because…” Campaign in celebration of the UN International Day of Tolerance which strengthens and fosters mutual understanding among cultures and peoples.

Diversity does not apply to a certain group of people, we are all diverse!

Pick up a marker, fill in what makes you different and wear your “I am Different Because…” t-shirt on Nov. 16, 2018. Take a picture of you and your coworkers rocking your t-shirts and be sure to post it online using the hashtags #iamdifferentbecause #RACIDE

To get your “I am Different Because…” T-shirt for Nov. 16 please contact: diversity.woodbuffalo@rmwb.ca

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is committed to inclusion, diversity and equality. As part of our mission, we aim to create a welcoming community, serving the needs of an increasingly diverse population.


The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo joined the Canadian Coalition of Municipalities Against Racism and Discrimination (CCMARD) on April 1, 2006. The Municipality also adopted the 10 commitments – listed by the Canadian Commission for UNESCO – as a guideline for future Municipal plans.


A Council-appointed Regional Advisory Committee on Inclusion, Diversity and Equality (RACIDE) was created to engage the community in discourse about the principles, as set forth in the UNESCO commitments.

RACIDE Year in Review

Coalitions Creating Equity (CCE)

The Coalitions Creating Equity (CCE) program is both a local and province-wide approach that has been developed to help build strategies and guiding principles to strengthen the capacity of community, individuals and organizations addressing equity, racism and human rights issues.

In Wood Buffalo the CCE program is overseen by the Regional Advisory on Inclusion, Diversity and Equality (RACIDE). The coalition aims to reduce the number of equity, racism, hate and human rights incidents and to reduce the number of unreported incidents by creating a pathway through education for an inclusive community that understands and respects human rights.
