KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives is a dynamic, church-based, social justice movement which unites churches and religious organizations in a faithful ecumenical response to the call to "do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God" (Micah 6:8). Through KAIROS we deliberate on issues of common concern, advocate for social change and join with people of faith and goodwill in action for social transformation. KAIROS works with its members, partners, and our cross-Canada community based network to offer a faith-based response to issues of sustainability, dignity and rights.
