AMSSA's Diversity Awards

On January 6, 2003, British Columbia mourned the loss of Riasat Ali Khan.  For forty years he worked tirelessly to help immigrants integrate into Canadian society and to support diversity.  He contributed greatly to the promotion of multiculturalism in the province. The Riasat Ali Khan Diversity Award was established by AMSSA, soon after Khan’s death in 2003, to honour his many years of dedicated service to multiculturalism, anti-racism and inclusion in British Columbia.  AMSSA Member Agencies are invited to nominate deserving organizations for the annual reward. 

The Service Recognition Awards were created by AMSSA to acknowledge the amazing work and committment that Staff and Volunteers contribute to not only the organization but diversity in British Columbia. The Service Recognition Staff and Volunteer Awards are also nominated by AMSSA members.
