Canadian National Muslim Christian Liaison Committee

The Canadian National Muslim Christian Liaison Committee (NMCLC) brings together representatives from Muslim and Christian national organizations to discuss areas of sensitivity or conflict and issues of common interest. Meetings are held 4-5 times a year. NMCLC does not take official, representative policy positions and instead encourages participants to facilitate action within their respective organizations in the context of the committee's discussion and conclusions. Past committee projects have included "Families Meeting Families," which encouraged pairs of Muslim and Christian families to build relationships through social engagement, and Recognition Dinners, which honor individuals who have significantly contributed to Muslim-Christian dialogue. MNCLC member organizations include the Council of the Muslim Community of Canada, Canadian Islamic Congress, Canadian Council of Muslim Women, Islamic Circle of North America, Council of Imams, United Church of Canada, Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, Presbyterian Church of Canada, and Canadian Council of Churches.
