About

Intercultural Dialogue Institute is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to advance social cohesion through personal interaction by promoting respect & mutual understanding.

The vision of Intercultural Dialogue Institute is to contribute to Canada’s diverse and multicultural atmosphere by service and contribution to society. We dream for a cosmopolitan world of peace, tolerance, love and compassion where:

  • The environment and all life is cherished, protected, and improved,
  • Religious and cultural fears & hatred are replaced with understanding and respect
  • People come to know and care for their neighbors
  • The richness of human and religious diversity is woven into the fabric of communal, civil, and societal life
  • Religious and spiritual communities live in harmony and contribute to a better Canada using their richness of wisdom and compassion
Let us be true global citizens. Let us not rest until we have truly succeeded in bringing positive change into the lives of people, and laid the foundations for peaceful, well-functioning, sustainable societies throughout the world.

Rarely has there been a moment in recent history when it has been so critical for all of us to protect our common space, building on what unites us. Again, I ask, if not us, then who?
