Living in Harmony

In 1966, the United Nations declared March 21 as the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in commemoration of the 1960 Sharpeville massacre in South Africa when peaceful demonstrators against apartheid were wounded and killed.

In 1990, City Council proclaimed March as Cultural Diversity and Race Relations Month in the City of Saskatoon.

Living in Harmony Recognition Awards

The Living in Harmony Awards are part of the City’s commitment to foster an inclusive community where ethno-cultural diversity is welcomed and valued, and where everyone can live with dignity and to their full potential, without facing racism or discrimination.

The Living in Harmony Awards recognize individuals and organizations whose outstanding achievements contribute to the elimination of racial discrimination. 

Nominations are welcome of any member (individual/organization) of the Saskatoon community and will be assessed on specific criteria, which include how the nominee has demonstrated an understanding of racism and how long the nominee has been actively involved in promoting the elimination of racism.

The Living in Harmony Recognition Awards are presented by the City of Saskatoon’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee in partnership with the University of Saskatchewan Student’s Union. Winners are selected by members of the Committee.
