The Revelstoke Multicultural Society was formed in January 2011.  The mandate of the society is to support, encourage, and foster multiculturalism in Revelstoke. The RMS fosters cultural awareness, appreciation and inclusiveness in Revelstoke by:

  • Celebrating our multicultural heritage and diversity;
  • Creating opportunities to learn about and appreciate cultures here and afar, and;
  • Promoting and supporting community planning and services that support the integration of newcomers and embrace the needs of all ethnicities and cultures.

The RMS also organizes the annual Carousel of Nations events, and has hosted an Immigrant Film & Speaker series.
