The Mosaic Institute

Diasporas@Toronto Conference Report


Ever since its inception in 2007, the Mosaic Institute has been engaging Canadians from ethnocultural communities with connections to entrenched conflicts overseas in discussions, dialogues and voluntary service projects to advance the cause of peace. One of the facets of our work has been to encourage other Canadians – including actors across government, academe and civil society – to consider ways of harnessing the knowledge, networks and enthusiasm of these citizens to help identify and act upon Canada’s international priorities. Rather than merely providing a beautiful picture of ethnocultural harmony, Canada’s rich diversity can and should be leveraged in service of Canada’s interests around the globe..
