About One Burlington
One Burlington was founded through the inspiration of several Burlington faith communities after the Quebec mosque shooting in 2017. We embrace the unity that flows from acknowledging the multifaith and multicultural foundations of our city. We believe the contributions of our diverse faith, cultural, community, environmental and service groups continually strengthen Burlington; make it an exceptional place to live; and are a foundational part of the prosperity we all enjoy here in Halton and the surrounding area. Our beliefs are manifested in the inclusivity of our annual summer fairs and outreach events which are free and open to the public.
One Burlington is dedicated to creating and facilitating opportunities for people of different backgrounds to come together in a cordial and peaceful manner, in order to learn about and experience aspects of each others’ faith and culture – because we believe a diverse, integrated Burlington is a stronger, kinder and more interesting community to live in.
One Burlington envisions our city and region growing beyond a place of mutual awareness and tolerance, to a place of mutual respect and understanding – leading to shared goodwill amongst all residents of our diverse community, and to unity in diversity.
Every summer since its inception, One Burlington has hosted an in-person summer fair featuring faith, community, culture and service groups, with free admission, performances and food in Central Park. Each year, around 1,500 people from Burlington, Halton and area have enjoyed the relaxed family atmosphere of our fair. Seasonal outreach events were added to engage more of our community, and then all our events went online in response to the pandemic, with the exception of our February food drive for the Burlington Food Bank. See our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages for up-to-date information.
