The Armenian Diocese of Canada and the Canadian Youth Interfaith Network joined forces to create a documentary to bridge cultural and religious differences among Canada’s many ethnic and faith communities.
The 30-minute documentary Diversity was created with support of the Government of Canada and produced by Lights and Shadows Productions.
“We traveled across Canada to discover its diversity,” states to the Canadian Youth Interfaith Network. They brought together representatives from different ethnic and religious communities in the four largest cities in Canada to find out what it would take “to challenge the existing stereotypes.”
Their aim was to develop and strengthen a culture of tolerance in Canada and to reduce prejudice based on religious affiliation by seeking and finding common ground.
The film can be viewed in full on YouTube.
From its beginnings, the Church of Scientology has recognized that freedom of religion is a fundamental human right. In a world where conflicts are often traceable to intolerance of others’ religious beliefs and practices, the Church has, for more than 50 years, made the preservation of religious liberty an overriding concern.
The Church publishes this blog to help create a better understanding of the freedom of religion and belief and provide news on religious freedom and issues affecting this freedom around the world.
