Thoughtful Canadian Conversation 


Insightful discussions about what makes Canada work

Canadian Difference is an online community dedicated to exploring what makes Canada work, and the role which mutual accommodation has or could play in this country.

From July 2016 to April 2017, we hosted over 30 open discussions about topics important to Canadians. The discussions have since closed, but our project lives on in our archive, resources, and upcoming events.


From July 2016 to April 2017, we hosted over 30 open discussions on Indigenous peoples, Muslims in Canada, multiculturalism, Canada as a global citizen, and mutual accommodation.
