We invite you to participate in our ‘Mapping Diversity’ project!

Are you engaged in Christian-Muslim dialogue, social justice, relationship-building, or educational activities? Do you know a group or a community where Canadian Muslims and Christians encounter one another, build friendships, and work together? Do you want to connect with organizations, groups and communities working in these areas?

We invite you to participate in our ‘Mapping Diversity’ project!

The Christian Interfaith Reference Group (CIRG) of The Canadian Council of Churches is collaborating with the National Muslim Christian Liaison Committee (NMCLC) to facilitate ways for members of our faith communities to know each other, to foster respect and to create opportunities for dialogue and joint action locally and nationally.

Together we are working on a project to map the diversity of Muslim-Christian communities in Canada, focusing on the following areas:

· Identifying established Christian and Muslim partnerships happening across Canada, whether through dialogues or coordinated social justice activities;
· Identifying religious and cultural centres for Muslim communities in Canada that would be open to making connections with Christian congregations or groups.

The final goal of our project is to compile this information for an online resource whereby Muslims and Christians from across Canada could easily identify where joint collaborations and partnerships exist, or where there are possibilities for cooperation.
