Canadian Baha'is in the news
Bahá’u’lláh, the Prophet-Founder of the Baha'i Faith, declared that “it is incumbent upon each one of you to engage in some occupation—such as a craft, a trade or the like. We have exalted your engagement in such work to the rank of worship of the one true God.”1 Canadian Baha'is have striven to observe this edict by contributing their talents to many facets of Canadian society. Emerging from a variety of backgrounds, they have distinguished themselves in their promotion of human dignity and universal values at international, national, and local levels. Some of the fields in which Baha'is have been particularly prominent are medicine, science, education, the arts, human rights, architecture, business, and law. Below are links to some biographies of Baha'is who have received national attention for their work.
