Opening ceremony of the new headquarters of the Global Centre for Pluralism, Ottawa

Ottawa, Canada, 16 May 2017 – The Global Centre for Pluralism, a major international institution for research and dialogue about the value of diversity, has officially opened its permanent headquarters in a historic building in Ottawa at a ceremony with His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, and His Highness the Aga Khan.

“The Centre is inspired by Canada’s experience as a multi-ethnic country that is committed to valuing diversity as a strength. It is fitting that only weeks away from celebrating 150 years since Confederation, the Global Centre for Pluralism opens its doors in the heart of Canada’s capital,” said John McNee, Secretary General of the Global Centre for Pluralism. “At a time of rising populism and exclusion, the Centre serves as a positive voice in the global conversation about living with differences.”
