The Canadian Centre for Ecumenism has a myriad of tools and resources to help you, your organization or your family to better understand Ecumenism
Nowhere in our Canadian pluralistic society is there as great a reflection of our openness, diversity and tolerance than in our approach to an individual’s understanding of her/his faith or spirituality. The complexity and diversity of religions represented in this publication clearly demonstrates the vastness of the Canadian spiritual landscape as reflected in the Canadian Forces. Our current world focus pushes all Canadians and especially members of the Canadian Forces to grapple with issues of personal faith and spirituality while at the same time attempting to understand the faith and spiritual perspective of others.

What would the world be like if every person on the planet lived according to the Golden Rule?
Based on this theme, the Scarboro Missions has developed for schools and youth groups an art exercise and lesson plan where young people are invited to envision a world in which every person lives according to the golden rule. Next, they are asked to depict what they have imagined or envisioned by creating a piece of art. For information on this program, follow this link.
