In this article the author explains social cohesion policies in Canada and their impact on heritage interpretation. Canadians take pride in their international identity as a multicultural nation. In cities such as Toronto, Ontario more than 40% of its population has cultural roots somewhere else in the world. Popular media increasingly present stories and images reflecting the invisible minorities of Canada. In the late 1990s, Canadian historic sites and museums came under pressure to rethink their policies and programming in light of the multicultural profile of Canadians.
