The RCMP and Intercultural Dialogue Institute (IDI) hosted an inaugural RCMP/IDI Intercultural Ramadan Friendship Dinner at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto on June 4, 2017.

"What an incredible opportunity for us to interact with so many from the diverse communities we support," said Supt. Lise Crouch, assistant criminal operations Officer for National Security. "It is events such as this one that continues to remove barriers for our police officers. The police are members of so many communities and contribute both on and off duty.  This friendship dinner highlights the strength in collaboration and respect."

Chiefs of Police and dignitaries from government offices took part in the special occasion, which also included a celebration of Canada's 150 years.

The IDI has been working closely with the RCMP and policing partners in the Greater Toronto Area to promote “social cohesion, personal interaction, respect and mutual understanding among people through dialogue and partnership”, the RCMP says. The RCMP Integrated National Security Enforcement Team – Public Engagement Unit notes it has also been very active in developing “trusting relationships in the community to improve engagement and implement community programs”.
