Calgary Interfaith Council

The World Interfaith Harmony Week was first proposed at the UN General Assembly on September 23, 2010 by H.M. King Abdullah II of Jordan. Just under a month later, on October 20, 2010, it was unanimously adopted by the UN and henceforth the first week of February will be observed as a World Interfaith Harmony Week. The City of Calgary is proclaiming February 1-7, 2017 to be World Interfaith Harmony Week in Calgary.
