What does it mean to build a “whole society”? What is the purpose of secularism, and what are its limits? How can we re-conceptualize the role of religion in Canadian public life? What is the role of religion and spirituality in cultural reconciliation?
We invite you to join us and our distinguished speakers, moderators, and guests as we explore these and other timely questions at our second annual conference, following on “Bridging the Secular Divide: Religion and Canadian Public Discourse,” held at McGill University in 2013. “Our Whole Society” is sponsored by The Laurier Institution and organized by a national inter-faith leadership committee. It will take place from March 22-24, 2015, at the University of British Columbia’s Robson Square complex in downtown Vancouver.
