The National Congress of Italian-Canadians, Edmonton District
The National Congress of Italian-Canadians, Edmonton District, is allied with the National Congress of Italian-Canadians. At the local level, the Congress liaises with various organizations in the Italian community and serves as a vehicle for communication and co-operation.  The Congress is responsible for a range of community outreach activities that link the Italian community with the community-at-large, particularly in the area of education, multiculturalism and rights and responsibilities.

Their aims include:

  • Finding ways and means for nurturing the cultural identity of Canadians of Italian descent in order to build a stronger Edmonton, Alberta and Canada.
  • Ensuring that Italian immigration history is recorded and shared with the Italian community of Edmonton and the community at large.
  • Ensuring that the diverse ethno-cultural makeup of our city, province and country is acknowledged by citizens and government alike in the interest of all.
  • Finding ways to bring together ethno-cultural communities and the cultural mainstream so that ethno-cultural concerns are not viewed as a minority interest.
  • Promoting the integration of Italian-Canadian culture into the life of Edmonton. The Board thinks that it is imperative to focus on what unites us as citizens of Canada rather than what divides us.
