At Canada's 150th anniversary of Confederation, we need to discover a new way of thinking, talking and acting together so that Canada's religious diversity can become a resource for collective advancement.
The third iteration of the 'Our Whole Society' conference will ask such challenging questions as, can we advance beyond simple toleration of differences to respect for the diversity of our citizenry? Can we create an inclusive secularism which provides space for diverse secular and religious viewpoints and practices to be welcomed into the public sphere without prejudice of any kind? How will we foster a mature collective life that will benefit all Canadians?
The Conference keynote speakers are Dr. John Borrows and Dr. John Ralston Saul. Also expected is broad participation from all sectors of Canadian society, including people who profess a faith tradition and people who do not.
