The Centre for Spirituality and the Workplace (established in 2004) is the first academic-based centre for spirituality and work in Canada. Housed in the Sobey School of Business at Saint Mary's University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Centre is both a centre for academic activities and a centre of influence in the community, the nation, and the world. The Centre reflects Saint Mary's role as a leader in research and community relationship building both locally and internationally. The Centre engages academics and practitioners in various sectors and organizations in collaborative and community-based research, and offers networking, support, conference, and consulting services. Because of the interdisciplinary and multifaith nature of work and spirituality, the Centre works with faculty from numerous departments and programs at Saint Mary's University and its affiliate, Atlantic School of Theology, as well as with other universities and religious organizations, to develop lectures, courses, and programs. The Centre celebrates and promotes Saint Mary's goal of personal development and wellbeing of all students.
