The Multifaith Information Manual (4th edition)

As Canada moves towards a more diverse society it is imperative that individuals charged to care, educate and protect our citizens be made aware of the practical implications of diverse religious beliefs. The Multifaith Information Manual provides concise information which takes some of the mystery out of management of religious diversity.

The Multifaith Information Manual addresses such issues as:

  • Basic Beliefs of faith groups
  • Ceremonial objects, dress
  • Sources of prayers and scriptures
  • Mode of Worship
  • Structure and denominations
  • Rituals
  • Mode of dress/Modest requirements
  • Dietary requirements
