WEBINARS

Experiences Canada has partnered with leading organizations who will help us deliver a series of one-hour long webinars (7 total) on the topics below:

Islamophobia

Let’s break barriers and build bridges together.  It’s important to educate ourselves to think critically, have empathy, reflect on and see bias, and advocate for peace and justice. You will leave this interactive webinar with awareness about Islam and Muslims, Islamophobia and that there is more that unites us than divides us as Canadians.
