Office of Religious Freedom Consultations
IONA PACIFIC DIRECTOR PARTICIPATES IN OFFICE OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM CONSULTATIONS
IP Director Dr. Robert Daum was invited to participate in consultations with a broad spectrum of religious community leaders regarding the Government of Canada’s newly proposed Office of Religious Freedom. This initiative seeks to support religious freedom of religious minorities in countries around the world. In addition to participating in a round-table consultation in Vancouver with the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration, and Multiculturalism, the Hon. Jason Kenney, Rabbi Daum was invited to a conference in Ottawa convened by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the same subject. Owing to a scheduling conflict, Dr. Daum was unable to attend the conference in Ottawa.
