Founded in 1972, the Multifaith Action Society (MAS) is a Canadian registered charity dedicated to the facilitation of interfaith education and dialogue. For over forty years, MAS has worked to build bridges between the myriad cultural and spiritual communities that characterize British Columbia, and has collaborated on a wide variety of public education campaigns and initiatives that have affected positive social change while raising awareness of multicultural issues.
Specifically, the Multifaith Action Society:
At its heart, MAS' work is about educating the public about world religions and their potential to help nurture global peace and harmony. In a country as diverse as Canada, a positive and comprehensive spiritual awareness plays an essential role in creating and maintaining a healthy, peaceful, and co-creative society. As Canada’s oldest interfaith organization, MAS has engendered and fostered this spiritual awareness for over forty years, and has played an integral role in creating a space in British Columbia where over 1 million immigrants can live fruitful and productive lives, free from fear of violence and persecution.
