Purpose

Clarington’s Diversity Advisory Committee is an advisory body that provides advice, comments and recommendations to Council and municipal staff on issues affecting diversity in our community. The Committee strives toward a safe, welcoming and inclusive Clarington, where differences are celebrated, and the voices of all peoples are heard. The Diversity Advisory Committee engages Clarington residents to educate and raise awareness by celebrating our community’s differences and strengths through outreach activities.
