The Welcoming and Inclusive Communities and Workplaces Program will be holding several events in Fort St. John during the upcoming months.

Leslie Oliver and Danielle Armstrong outlined the events at the Fort St. John City Council meeting on Monday afternoon.

Oliver says the group has planned a Spring Activity Fest for March 20th.

The event will be held at the North Peace Secondary School’s gym, from noon until 3:00 p.m. There will be outdoor relays, obstacle courses, cultural demonstrations and food ranging from Biriyani to Pambazos.

Armstrong says over the next couple of months, the WICWP will be holding a Knowledge Development and Exchange Conference and an Inclusive Workplaces Forum.

The WICWP is a joint initiative between the Province and the Federal Government.
