Our Mission

Sri Lankans Without Borders (SLWB) is a registered not-for-profit organization based in Toronto, Canada that provides an independent, transparent, and inclusive platform for Canadians to connect, build and lead initiatives that promote dialogue and cross-community engagement between Sri Lanka’s diaspora communities in Canada. Building on universal values of pluralism and equality, as enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, we are also committed to a peaceful and democratic Sri Lanka for all its citizens on the basis of truth, accountability, and justice.

New to SLWB

There are many ways in which you can get involved with us. You can help lead an existing program or initiative. You could help us fundraise or consider making a donation. Even better, if you have creative ideas that can contribute to our mission, tell us about it and we can bring your idea to life, together.

What We Do in Sri Lanka

We recognize the importance of the island of Sri Lanka to our shared identity as part of the Canadian multicultural mosaic. Through our programs, we also explore ways in which the Canadian community can directly contribute, in a responsible manner, to the development of a Sri Lanka based on principles of pluralism and equality. We do this by constantly listening to multiple perspectives on the ground in Sri Lanka.

What We Do in Canada

Our work at home in Canada is guided by the fact that it is home to more than 300,000 Canadians of various Sri Lankan origins. We recognize that it is important for these multiple communities, especially its youth, to engage and participate in dialogue with each other in a constructive, empathetic and honest manner, on issues of mutual interest to our communities in Canada.
