We are moving!

We are excited to announce that we will be co-sharing an office space with The Walrus, a registered charity that publishes independent, fact-based journalism, produces national, ideas-focused events and fosters education. This partnership is a great example of how charities can work together in increasingly challenging times to:

  • Increase sustainability

  • Reduce costs

  • Maximize resources

  • And explore collaboration

As of November 1, Mosaic’s head office will be at our new location:

411 Richmond St. E., Suite B15

Toronto, ON M5A 3S5

Youth Summit: Turning Passion Into Action

In September, Mosaic’s first ever Youth Summit convened 150+ youth, educators, practitioners and organizational leaders to build bonds, break barriers and take action.

You can access the Youth Summit Snapshot, which summarizes the key takeaways from the thought-provoking two day event.

One highlight: the World Cafe gathered data to inform Mosaic’s “Youth Experiences of Prejudice in Canada” survey that will be released early next year. Young people will have opportunity to contribute to this survey in the coming weeks (stay tuned for more).

Hot Docs Citizen Minutes

Mosaic is a proud National Impact Partner of Hot Docs Citizen Minutes Screening Tour!

The Citizen Minutes Screening Tour spans five cities and features films highlighting ordinary Canadians doing extraordinary things to make their communities better places. Mosaic invites you to access tickets for free screenings in the cities listed below.

  • Toronto, October 25 at 6:30pm

  • Calgary, November 9 at 6:30pm

  • Montreal, November 27 at 6:30pm

The shorts will be available on Hot Docs at Home, with the second series available on both CBC Gem and Crave as of October 18, 2023. More about films and screening tour can be found here.

There is enormous power in art, film and storytelling. Through these outlets, we can not only tell our own stories and see ourselves reflected, but continue to develop our own understanding of other people, perspectives, and places.

Islamic History Month

Islamic History Month aims to educate and share the rich Muslim heritage and contributions to Canadian society.

This year’s theme is Celebrating Muslim Women in the Arts and Sciences. As part of this, author and artist @studentAsim is seeking stories about Muslim girls and women through his website — a digital bridge-building platform. Anyone can share a story! Learn more and share a story today.


We are a proud partner of the Toronto Jewish Film Festival.

An initiative of the Festival Foundation, J-Flix is a free online viewing library showcasing the rich diversity of film presented by TJFF over its 30+ year history, including documentaries, feature length narratives, short and beloved archival films. J-Flix can be accessed via the TJFF Virtual Cinema platform and registration is free.

Latin American Heritage Month

Since 2018, October is also Latin American Heritage Month.

Residents of Canada of Latin American origin make up a large and growing number of communities in Canada. The National Film Board of Canada has put together a collection of films about Latin American communities in Canada and abroad.
