The Mosaic Institute is committed to dismantling prejudice. The world, and Canadian society, is bearing witness to the escalation of intolerance, bigotry, and hatred. We are also in the midst of one of the most severe global migration crises the world has ever witnessed. The time for dismantling our prejudices is now. We need to learn to not only live with, but to value and cherish, all of our differences. The Mosaic Institute believes that dismantling prejudice happens one person at a time. That is why we are dedicated to addressing the issue through the Human-to-Human approach.
