Can someone help me differentiate between interculturalism and multiculturalism? It's a bit confusing for me.
Thank you in advance and have a good evening!

Here's a definition:
in Canada, we talk more about multiculturalism, while in Quebec, the approach is rather interculturalist.
** Although some points may be similar, interculturalism does not mean “assimilation”. Assimilation totally rejects belonging to the culture of origin, while interculturalism favors the dominant culture without however completely eradicating the culture of origin.
Hope everything is clearer for you now! :)
Don't hesitate if you have other questions! :)
