The 40th World Religions Conference successfully held on Sunday, October 17, 2021 at the WRC-studio. Speakers and essential staff were present in-person following strict Covid guidelines and safety protocols set forth by health Canada. The event was live streamed on this website.

The theme selected for this year's conference is "Combating Racism". Observing the growing incidents of racial discrimination, bigotry, injustices and prejudices of different forms in our society, the World Religions Conference aimed to address the root causes of racism and suggest ways to make our society to respect all and combat racism.


The World Religions Conference (WRC) is a multi-faith event which brings together well-known scholars from the world’s major religions to speak on a common topic from the point of view of their respective religious traditions. For 40 years, the WRC has served as an invaluable forum for different religious and ethnic communities to gather in the spirit of tolerance, peace, cooperation, and understanding. The WRC serves the noble purpose of educating members of the community regarding interesting and relevant topics by providing a platform where all major religions can pool their collective wisdom and teachings regarding the topic. Continually on the rise in terms of organizational standards, quality of content, and attendance, the WRC has become Canada's largest and longest running event of its kind!

The conference has a long tradition for bringing together renowned scholars for a deep and thought-provoking exchange of ideas. The event aims to explore the teachings and practices of different religious and philosophical traditions, with the hope that such mutual exploration will encourage better understanding and promote harmonious co-existence among the members of the society.
