Who We Are

Richmond Multicultural Community Services (RMCS) was originally founded as the Richmond Multicultural Concerns Society in 1985. RMCS was established as an advocacy group to support newcomers facing barriers and challenges in settling in Richmond, as well as facing discrimination and racism.

Today, RMCS provides a variety of services to immigrant and refugee communities in Richmond. RMCS plays an important role in the settlement, education, and integration of immigrants from the day they arrive in Richmond. We strive to welcome newcomers by assisting with their initial settlement needs such as language development, job search skills and networking skills within the community

Our vision is for a harmonious and inclusive society that values equality and diversity. At RMCS our mission is to foster intercultural harmony through leadership, collaboration, and quality service delivery.

We host a wide range of programs and community events to facilitate and promote multiculturalism, diversity, and inclusiveness in Richmond. Please visit our Programs & Service and Events section on this website or contact us at 604.279.7160 for more information.
