The Edmonton Sai Centre received an invitation to participate in an interfaith event on June 28th, 2015 in the town of Whitecourt, Alberta which is a smaller resource-based community about two hours northwest of Edmonton. The event was sponsored by the Ahamadiyya Muslim Jama’at and hosted by Reverend Alwin Maben, the local United Church minister. Four speakers were invited to speak on “Freedom of Expression and Respect for Religious Sanctities,” and the Sai Centre of Edmonton was invited to present from a Hindu perspective.

For its annual Sai Spiritual Education field trip this year, the Sathya Sai Centre of Toronto East visited the Gursikh Sabha Canada gurdwara.

The young adults of the Sathya Sai Centre of St-Hubert volunteered in the City of Vaudreuil (adjacent to Montreal) as it was the hardest hit. The young adults filled hundreds of sandbags and build walls around homes to prevent and delay water infiltration.
