The Buddhist Education Foundation of Canada hosts and sponsors a variety of Buddhist educational activities and events that take place both in university and community settings. We recognize the importance of this exchange to both the academic and the larger community. Therefore, we would like to support the strengthening of the outreach infrastructure at the University of Toronto for publicizing Buddhist educational activities and events in the community.
Our Foundation sponsors the Applied Buddhist Studies Initiative at Emmanuel College (ECABSI), University of Toronto.
Upcoming activities include a Series of Workshops on: Applying Mindfulness and Buddhism in Providing Care. Two workshops will take place on Jan. 30 and 31, 2016 on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and one workshop will take place on Oct. 16, 2016 on Empowering Those Who Care For Others: Sustainable Compassion Training Workshop.
A Conference on Applied Buddhism: Past and Present is going to be hosted by ECABSI on October 14-16, 2016.

In 2015, we began working with York University by supporting the Asian Heritage Month Education Roundtable and related activities to highlight the contributions of Asian spiritual traditions to Canada. We hope to continue to play a role in Buddhist events that form part of the series of spiritual educational events to be presented as a year-long program.
