This was so envisioned by the Holy Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community over a century ago. Every year a theme is selected as a topic for deliberations at this event, and representatives of various faiths are invited for participation. These deliberations, as they are based on a mutual respect for each other's differences, are an example to all who attend, and a valuable lesson of unity and accepting others. In Canada WRC's are being held for four decades in various cities and towns across the country. The typical format of the program is such that every member of the panel gets 20 minutes for his/ her presentation and after the presentations there are about 30 minutes for Q & A Session. Questions are taken in the written form and asked by moderator of the event.
