KAIROS Network

Use the map above or the tabs below to peruse a list of KAIROS local groups.

KAIROS Canada has networks of grassroots activists across the country. Some of those individuals are connected to KAIROS local groups – diverse circles of people, working together across religious and cultural lines on common issues of concern. Some individuals have volunteered to be a key Regional Contact in a particular city, to help coordinate communications and relationships. All of these local groups and local contacts are gathered into KAIROS regions, each with a Regional Coordinating Committee to facilitate area-wide events and initiatives. Each Coordinating Committee supports all the local groups in their region and sends one or two people as Regional Representatives to national KAIROS meetings. Connect with the local group closest to you.


Regional Contact

Mary Rigby (md.2rigby@gmail.com)

New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island

Mary has been a member of KAIROS Halifax for several years and a member of the regional Coordinating Committee (CoCo) for the past three. Her interest in working among friends in interfaith communities, in justice for all life, human rights and environmental responsibility, plus an earlier involvement with Ten Days for World Development (Ten Days for Global Justice), led her to being an active member of KAIROS. Originally from southwestern Alberta she now lives in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

There is beauty, strength, peace and harmony in ecumenical partnerships. I witnessed this growing up in the Korean Christian Church in Japan and being among other small minority Christian churches in Japan. Having found this again in KAIROS, since 1997 when I got involved in the campaign against bottled water with groups that would soon form KAIROS, I remain with KAIROS encouraged by the continuing ecumenical and global partnerships and thankful for the inspiration and resources for faithful prophetic witness. I aspire to learning, sharing, and growing in community (and communion) together, for peace and justice local to global. I look forward to being a part of BC-Yukon’s faithful action together!
I respectfully and gratefully acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Coast Salish Territory; namely the traditional unceded lands of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), in Vancouver.

The ebb and flow of rustling leaves reminds me of the ebb and flow of reconciliation and justice spirited faithfulness. For me when I listened to the experiences of Indigenous peoples at the Saskatoon TRC, my understanding of justice took me on a new path. It started with solidarity engagements with Indigenous peoples -the ‘Sister Journey’ canoe trip on the Churchill River, on to Guatemala, and then on to the Philippines. Pilgrimage and relationships of justice, peace, transformation, healing and renewal of all creation.

Elaine Gareau (elaine.gareau@rogers.com)

Greetings! I am originally from Prince Albert, Saskatchewan but have lived in Ontario for 25 years.  I work full-time as a freelance editor and translator in Barrie. Working from home makes it easier for me to pursue my passion for social justice. I enjoy working with like-minded people in Simcoe County KAIROS, the Barrie Action Circle for Amnesty International, and Développement et Paix in my home parish.

Cherilyn Spraakman (cherilyn.spraakman@gmail.com)

It has been a privilege for me to be involved with KAIROS, for personal learning and for relationships with people who are social justice advocates. I was born and raised in Alberta, have lived in Newmarket Ontario for 27 years and am a retired physiotherapist.  I lead up the Global Justice Team at Holy Cross Lutheran Church and am on the Board of Directors of Citizens for Public Justice. I look forward to continuing my support for the ministries of KAIROS: Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives.
