An article in the Lethbridge Herald by Tymmarah Sheculski, a Diversity and Inclusion Consultant living in Lethbridge, who is a former EICEA board member. Please note that we still have the Multifaith Calendars available that she discusses in the article:

“If you want to learn more about celebrations of other faith communities, I recommend purchasing a Multifaith Calendar from the Edmonton Interfaith Centre for Education and Action. See http://www.edminterfaithcentre.ca/resources/2019-multifaith-calendar-coming-together-exploring-new-directions/. In workplaces, managers and supervisors can refer to it to be prepared for staff who may be requesting time off for their holy days – which, in some cases, is a strict requirement of their faith practice. If we don’t attempt to give time off for a holy day when it’s requested, an employer may be committing a human rights offence, but that’s not a great reason to make the accommodation.”
