TV Show

The World Meets in Wood Buffalo was a TV Show that brought together panelists from different parts of the world to listen to perspectives, traditions and cultures that reside in our community. View all 14 episodes through the playlist below.

Diverse Voices is a Radio Program that is hosted on 91.1 The Bridge, and brought by the Multicultural Association of Wood Buffalo, in collaboration with the Canadian Red Cross.

The most recent data shows more than 80 languages are spoken in Fort McMurray. With a population of slightly more than 60,000, that makes our city more diverse, per capita, than Toronto. Living in a culturally diverse community such as Fort McMurray can be both challenging and exciting. Join us on Wednesdays at 10:30am for Diverse Voices when we celebrate, educate and integrate the various wonderful cultures of Wood Buffalo.
