About

Safe Harbour: Respect for All is a long-standing program that provides diversity training to businesses, institutions and organizations.

While Safe Harbour is now an AMSSA program, the program was originally created by the Central Vancouver Island Multicultural Society with support from community partners. AMSSA is a not-for-profit that has been strengthening diversity in BC for over 40 years, supporting its 70+ member organizations doing immigrant settlement and multicultural work.

AMSSA’s Safe Harbour program received the Organizational Category Provincial Nesika Award in 2011. The Provincial Nesika Awards, recently renamed the BC Multicultural Awards, celebrate British Columbia’s diverse communities by recognizing the people, organizations and communities bringing together British Columbia’s diverse cultural groups.
