Exploring Canadian Resilience: Sharing Our Journey Through Story and Song

Arrive early to share in Langar, the traditional vegetarian Sikh communal meal.  Then lend your voice to a chorus of celebration, integrating teachings from a wide range of spiritual traditions, starting with the teachings of our Indigenous people.  The evening will explore where we have come from, what have we gone through, and where do we want to go next.  Admission is free and all are welcome.

Statement on the January 29 Quebec mosque attack

The Multifaith Action Society unequivocally condemns the senseless act of violence and hatred that claimed the lives of six Muslim-Canadians this past Sunday at the Centre culturel islamique de Québec. We want to express our condolences to the families of the deceased and injured, and assure the Muslim community that we stand with you in solidarity at this most difficult time. We embrace all religions, and are steadfast in our belief that dialogue and cooperation between people of different cultures provides the antidote to fear and hatred. Multiculturalism is an essential element of the Canadian national fabric, and we hope that people of all faiths can join together in condemning violence in the name of religion and in reaching out to each other with love and respect.

2017 Multifaith Calendar still available!









MAS is pleased and excited to announce the publication of the new 2017 Multifaith Calendar - Love and Compassion. 

Look around – what in this world could not benefit from a little more love and compassion? Think about your neighbourhood, office, classroom, city, country, world – everyone benefits from an outpouring of love and compassion. In Canada, where the Multifaith Action Society produces the Multifaith Calendar every year, we are celebrating our 150
th year (sesquicentennial anniversary) of confederation.

We believe in love and compassion as integral Canadian qualities and so we asked our artists to explore this theme.

MAS would like to extend a note of gratitude to all of the artists who submitted works for consideration for the 2017 MFC. We are extremely honoured to have the opportunity to view such high quality and compelling pieces. We hope you enjoy the results.
