A multi-faith, nationwide network celebrating the role of faith in Canada's past, present, and future.
The Faith Alliance began with Cardus's intention of helping individuals and organizations inspire, equip, and mobilize their communities to collaborate on unique efforts that tell the story of faith in Canada during its sesquicentennial celebrations in 2017, but also in the years to come. We recognized faith as integral to the lives of those who contribute to Canada's flourishing. We did not want to erase our religious differences, but rather, learn how to live together as neighbours, within these differences.
In our daily life, it is easy to be disconnected from others who live, believe, and dwell in a way that is different from us, but who share common goals we may lack awareness of. The Faith Alliance allowed members to be a part of a large multi-faith network striving to move beyond tolerance to a rich and engaged pluralism. The database was one way to stay connected, to mobilize communities to celebrate faith as integral to Canadian life, and to encourage the fostering of new relationships locally and nationwide.
