What is The Canadian Institute for Law, Theology, and Public Policy Inc.?
The Institute engages in research, educational and publication activities, but does not engage in lobbying activities. The Institute is incorporated under the Business Corporations Act. It is not a charitable organization, and cannot issue receipts for income tax deductions. This was done deliberately to ensure that individuals are not tempted to support the Institute rather than their local church.
The activities of the Institute are guided by a Statement of Faith and an international Board.
Half a century ago, C.S.
The Canadian Institute for Law, Theology and Public Policy has taken up C.S. Lewis's challenge, and is focused on the area of public policy.
Statement Of Faith
The Canadian Institute of Law, Theology and Public Policy Inc. accepts the Holy Scriptures as the revealed and inerrant word of God, the all-sufficient rule for faith and practice; and adopts without mental reservation the Apostles' Creed as its statement of fundamental beliefs:
I believe in God,
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only
Son, our Lord.
I believe in The Holy Spirit,
