Description


CMIM mission is to inspire, promote and provide access to science to all Canadians through the lens of Diversity. We believe that scientific literacy is a human rights issue that needs to be factored equally as basic reading and writing in order to function through daily life.

Inspiring young people to the possibility of careers in STEM.

Supporting and promoting diverse communities as decision makers and stewards in the development of Science edutainment.

Providing information to parents and guardians in diverse communities about opportunities in STEM for the children and for themselves.

Information sharing and empowerment.
