Minister Davis Acknowledges International Day for Tolerance

The Honourable Bernard Davis, Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour, today joins people throughout the province and around the world in acknowledging the International Day for Tolerance.

Established by the United Nations, the International Day for Tolerance aims to foster respect and tolerance through increased mutual understanding among people of all backgrounds.

The International Day for Tolerance promotes five key ways to counter intolerance: through law, education, access to information, press freedom, and local solutions.

The 2018 Diversity Calendar acknowledges this and other cultural holidays and events, a key commitment in The Way Forward on Immigration in Newfoundland and Labrador.

This collaborative, partnership-driven immigration action plan delivers on commitments in The Way Forward to strengthen the province’s economic foundation and deliver better services and better outcomes for residents. The Way Forward outlines all actions the Provincial Government is taking to achieve a strong, diversified province with a high standard of living, and can be viewed at

“The International Day for Tolerance reminds us that we share far more in common with all people of every background than we may realize. I encourage all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians to add their voices to the global chorus promoting mutual understanding and respect.”
