Langley had its first Global Festival Saturday, celebrating the diverse cultures of this community.
Hosted by Langley Local Immigration Partnership (LLIP), the event on July 22 was created to bring the community together to improve immigrant settlement and integration in Langley.
The event is the result of a strategic plan developed last year to ensure settlement success, build belonging, and support meaningful employment, Ana Marie Panczel, coordinator of LLIP, said.
“Creating a place where residents feel included and where they belong are top of mind for the Building Belonging Working Group of the LLIP,” Panczel said.
