The Edmonton Intercultural Centre (EIC) came into existence in December of 2014. Located in the heart of the McCauley community, in the old McCauley School building, the EIC is home to nine non-profit organizations, who share a similar mandate or vision of antiracism, inclusion, and intercultural sharing and learning. The EIC also has common rental spaces, utilized by numerous smaller community groups, who have needs both for space and for a welcoming, safe, and diverse environment. The vision of the Edmonton Intercultural Centre is to transform the McCauley School into a centre for learning, research, recreation and the arts that reflects and capitalizes on the rich diversity in the McCauley community and the City of Edmonton.
